I am not at war | KONTRARIE


‘I am not at war’ performed by solidarity choir KONTRARIE at the 20th commemoration of Transport XX on 21 April 2013 in Boortmeerbeek, Belgium. Theme this 20th commemoration : “In the track of Transport XX after 70 years”. Dutch: 20e herdenking – “In het spoor van Transport XX na 70 jaar”.

With a roaring special contribution by a helicopter 😉

I am not at war with anyone
I am not at war with anyone
Go away warplanes
You bring fear and shame
I am not at war with anyone

I give my love to Iraq, and to America
I give my love to Israel, and to Palestine
We could live as one
Between the sea and sun
I am not at war with anyone

I don’t need to be friends with everyone
But I’d like to live in peace with everyone
This rush to war is wrong
And so I sing this song
I am not at war with anyone
I am not at war with anyone

I am not at war with anyone
I am not at war with anyone
Go away warplanes
You bring fear and shame
I am not at war with anyone
I am not at war with anyone

Sorry .. I recorded not all of their song .. I stopped filming thinking ‘can’t use this online for copyright reasons’ but now I believe I was wrong… so here that strong emotional song .. the first part .. all I have recorded – that Saturday in the heart of Kazimierz – the old Jewish district of Kraków (Poland) , after visiting there the Center for Jewish Culture (Judaica Foundation) the day before together with Simon Gronowski , and the Auschwitz camps May 24 with Simon and Koenraad Tinel (and Flemish TV with director Marianne Soetewey, working there too on a documentary).
