(Le Chant des Déportés) 

“Le Chant des Marais”, European hymn of the deportation, is a collective creation created in July-August 1933 in the Nazi concentration camp of Boergermoor.

It was singing there a few days later in front of almost 1000 prisoners, who immediately took up the chorus again. Since the return from the camps, at every ceremony connected with the Deportation, the “Chant des Marais” is singing.

Song of distress and yet of resistance, dignity and hope, the “Chant des Marais” was born from the mud in which Nazi barbarity wanted to annihilate men.
