  1. Garry was surprised at how much power she put in the song. She didn’t have much of a voice, but she had tons of emotion that came through in her singing.

  2. She is definitely singing. She is a contralto. And she is making extraordinary choices with the music, including the accompaniment. What is striking to me is that she says she loves the song, reminding me that the word “song” has different connotations for all of us. I’m usually so obsessed with the line, that the words take a back seat. Not true here.

    • She was a very early anti-Nazi. She left Germany as Hitler rose and never went back.

      Dietrich was made an honorary citizen of Berlin on 16 May 2002. Translated from German, her memorial plaque reads

      “Tell me where the flowers are”

      The song was VERY much her.

  3. I never heard her sing this song, actually any song. I only knew her as an actress. She makes her point succinctly though.
