Note: Norah Friede explains that the Czech resistance song is from the musical Svet Za Mrizemi written in 1933 by Jan Werich and Jiri Voskovec, composed by Jaroslav Ježek. Prisoners in his concentration camp sang this song for inspiration. The German guards didn't understand it, and Friede remembers singing the Czech national anthem and telling the guard it was a Russian song.
