The Jews are hiding in cupboards from men searching for them with guns this is not occupied Europe in 1941 This is the present day This is contemporary Jews are hiding in cupboards Reliving history Jews are dying on pavements In Paris on the Rue de Rosiers Dying in my lifetime There's indifference and despair This is our present day This is the time that's come Now Jews are hiding in cupboards Modernity's undone. This is not ordinary there is no state of war but Jews are hiding in closets with men breaking down the door The Jews are hiding in cupboards from men searching for them with guns now Jews are hiding in cupboards What have we done?

about

*** The proceeds from the sale of this single will be donated to The Campaign Against Antisemitism (antisemitism.uk) ***

This song was written in January 2015 shortly after the news of the attack on Charlie Hebdo's office, and a Kosher supermarket. During the course of the Charlie Hebdo massacre, the murderers targeted only one woman: the Jewish writer, Elsa Cayat " In November, Paris faced a shocking reprise of terror. These acts of slaughter, as bookends to 2015, presage an era of horror, and a shift within our culture, that impacts us all
