Biography

Marianne Oswald, whose real name Alice Bloch-Colin, was a singer and actress born on 9 January 1901 in Reichsland in Alsace-Lorraine (Germany) to Jewish parents who had emigrated from Poland. She died on 25 February 1985 at Limeil-Brévannes in the Val-de-Marne.

Marianne Oswald began her singing career in 1920 in the cabarets of Berlin.

In 1930 or 1931, because of the rising Nazi party and the threat it posed, she exiled herself to Paris, where she introduced the song in French techniques to German Expressionism. It seduces with its peculiar diction, her “spoken-sung” Brechtian— her voice raw and tender.
