YouTube - 1943 The Bombing of Hamburg - UNCENSORED German Film

don't know if that might be the right section to post it, I am also not interested about the bombing, right or wrong, I only want to know if anyone knows the performers of the song Silent Night,Holy Night.
I have heard many versions, but never such a stirring one like this.

Benedikt, On the YouTube page it quite clearly reports:

UnknownWW2InColor | 07 October 2007
Uncensored silent color footage of the fires and the aftermath of the saturation incendiary night bombing runs that destroyed Hamburg on 07-28-1943, causing the death of over 50.000 mostly unidentified civilians and more than a million homeless. Original montage.
Calling "fair use" for the soundtrack, added in 2007 by ROMANO-ARCHIVES, performed by Gregor Samsa.


To all the civilians of Hamburg, women, children and elderly men that did'nt see Christmas in 1943, killed by the Allied terror bombing campaign in WW2, this video is respectfully dedicated. R.I.P.

"SUBSCRIBING to this Channel is a MUST for researchers and RARE HISTORICAL FOOTAGE fans!!!"
V. Romano

This is a video from the ROMANO-ARCHIVES' new website-"Unknown World War 2 in Color"-"WW2 Europe" section.

I thought Gregor Samsa was the main character in Kafka's "The Metamophis."

Could it be Marianne Faithful?

I am very fond of this version: YouTube - Al Green - Silent Night
