I saw this and wonder if it is true. Did Germany sponsor this band during WW2? Took swing songs and changed the lyrics. Rather fascinating.

It's not that unusual. The US made use of some celebrity cartoon characters to make anti-nazi propaganda. This is similar in a way.

Did not mean to post this in a negative way, just found it interseting. Yea I know about the cartoons.

Yea I like the song Lilli Marleen.
