My Partisan Song Project presentation at Muizenberg High School

Muizenberg High School principal Leonie Jacobsen and I first met on Thursday night, 8 February, at a delightful Yiddish music concert, featuring singer Caely-Jo Levi at the Kalk Bay Theatre. Leonie was introduced to me by my cousin, Julian Reitstein, a teacher at her school.

With Yiddish singer, Caely-Jo Levi

With Julian Reitstein, Leonie Jacobsen and Lesley Abelsohn after the show.

Julian told Leonie about my previous night’s presentation at the Cape Town Holocaust and Genocide Centre; the online collaboration class hosted by Herzlia High School with six schools in the FSU; and the inspiring concert at Highlands House retirement home on the same day. Without hesitation, Leonie invited me to address her students before I left Cape Town.

With Richard Freedman, director of the CT Holocaust Centre

The online class at Herzlia High School

The concert at Highlands House

At 9 am the following Monday, 12 February, I addressed 300 upper high school students at Muizenberg HS. Leonie organised everything in just one working day. What amazing organisation skills!

Here are photos from the morning.

Guests included Alice King, the US Consul (Education), who has offered to help facilitate the translation of the Partisan Song into Xhosa, so that next time I visit, the students can sing it in one of South Africa’s 11 official languages!

We are very pleased to inform you that the following proposal has been accepted for presentation at the 38th IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy in Warsaw, Poland from August 5 -10, 2018.

Abtracts

1. The Partisan Song Project and Genealogy – Inspiring and Connecting a New Generation

“Zog Nit Keynmol” is the anthem of Holocaust survivors. It is a legacy that is in danger of soon dying out. The Partisan Song Project is an initiative to connect it to the next generation through meaning, context, and family histories.

This multi-media presentation follows the path of the project from its genesis in January 2017:

the initial request from a school for information;

my research methodology and content;

my “out of the box” teaching style to 1000 students;

planning and running a separate online class with five schools in the FSU and hosted by a sixth;

introducing family history to the program;

working with more schools;

spreading the message via social media, Holocaust centres and survivors;

going global with the support of World ORT; HET UK, TEC Lithuania, Yad Vashem; and

the case study of Oscar Borecki, a Bielski Partisan from Novogrudok and commemorating his legacy in Australia.

2. Back From the Polish and Litvak Diaspora: Virtual Journeys That Connect Us To Our Roots.

Back From the Polish and Litvak Diaspora: Virtual Journeys That Connect Us To Our Roots.

My first heritage visit to Poland and the Baltics was in 2011. I have returned six times since, accumulating a wealth of information, photos, stories and contacts.

In this multimedia presentation find out why and how we gather and share this data with others in mind; and why we include both past and contemporary Jewish Life.

I will help you grasp the importance of the web using the following tools, drawing on some examples:

JewishGen KehilaLinks – my 80 KehilaLinks (35 Lithuania, 7 Poland, 6 Belarus, others in Latvia, Germany, Russia, Estonia, China, Africa and Australia);

WordPress – 600 posts and pages that make up my tangential travel and Jewish Life website http://elirab.me;

online classrooms which can simultaneously connect nine schools at once;

Google, including Google Search, YouTube, Translate, Maps, Earth, Hangouts, Chrome and Drive;

social media networks such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn; and

additional resources such as Wikipedia

Nechama Lifschitz sings Zog Nit Keynmol

Download PDF
 Nechama Lifschitz was born in 1927 in Kaunas, Lithuania and passed away in 2017 in Tel Aviv, Israel.
Nechama, the nightingale of Soviet Jewry, an opera star, defied the authorities and performed concerts in Yiddish throughout the former Soviet Union. Crowds adored her beautiful voice and strong character.
Nechama arrived in Israel in March 1969 and very soon thereafter performed her first concert in Hichal Hatarbut Auditorium, Tel Aviv.
We have received permission from  Roza Litay to share the Partisan song recording of her late mother.
Our thanks to Roza, and to Carol Hoffman who arranged this.

The Holocaust Survivors’ Anthem – School #4 Novogrudok Belarus

Download PDF

For the UN Holocaust Remembrance Day on 27 January 2018, a series of recordings of The Partisan Song, Zog Nit Keynmol, sung and recited by ORT and other schools will remind us of the importance of remembering and commemorating The Holocaust.

Here is a new video of students of  School #4, Novogrudok, Belarus, reciting The Holocaust Survivors’ Anthem in Belarusian.

BELARUSIAN

Ты не кажы, што гэта дзень апошні твой.

Хоць хмары шэрыя вісяць над галавой.

Яшчэ ён прыйдзе, наш даўно чаканы час,

І кожны крок – зарок, што ўжо ня знішчыць нас!

Ад краю пальмаў да заснежаных мясцін

Нясем свой боль і сваё гора як адзін.

І дзе ўпадзе крыві хоць кропля з нашых цел,

Узыдзе наша моц і мужнасць узрасце.

Устане сонца й пазалоціць новы дзень.

І знікне ноч, і з ёю вораг прападзе.

Але пакуль трывожна ранішняй парой,

Хай пойдзе песня з хаты ў хату, як пароль.

Яе пісалі не чарнілам, а крывёй.

Гэта не песенька пра птушку над зямлёй.

Калі валіліся муры, забыўшы страх,

Яе спяваў народ са зброяй у руках.

ORT students recite Zog Nit Keynmol for Holocaust Remembrance Day
New Compilation Video

Source Youtube:  https://youtu.be/FoN-28ZpJBw

Words can make a difference – both for good and evil, as Britain’s Holocaust Memorial Day Trust points out. ORT students have been using the defiantly optimistic words of Vilna poet Hirsh Glik to inspire themselves and others as part of our ongoing campaign to bring Zog nit Keynmol to new generations. This video shows just a few highlights of their stunning recitals of Glik’s lyrics to the song, which is renowned as the anthem of the Jewish partisans.

The Zog nit Keynmol campaign is the initiative of Eli Rabinowitz. If you would like to find out more please visit his blog: http://elirab.me/zog-nit-keynmol/.

Here are Glik’s lyrics, as translated by Aaron Kremer:

Never say that there is only death for you,
Though leaden skies may be concealing days of blue,
Because the hour we have hungered for near;
Beneath our tread the earth shall tremble — we are here!

From land of palm tree to the far-off land of snow,
We shall be coming with our torment and our woe;
And everywhere our blood has sunk into the earth,
Shall our bravery, our vigor blossom forth.

We’ll have the morning sun to set our day aglow,
And all our yesterdays shall vanish with the foe;
And if the time is long before the sun appears,
Then let this song go like a signal through the years.

This song was written with blood and not with lead;
It’s not a song that summer birds sing overhead;
It was a people among toppling barricades,
That sang this song of ours with pistols and grenades.

Never say that there is only death for you,
Though leaden skies may be concealing days of blue,
Because the hour we have hungered for is near;
Beneath our tread the earth shall tremble — we are here!

Maryusya Zarembo, an 8th grade student at ORT de Gunzburg School #550 in St Petersburg, Russia, is in awe of Hirsh Glik’s defiantly optimistic lyrics to Zog Nit Keynmol, the anthem of the Jewish partisans.

“This is the first time I’ve read or heard the poetry of someone from that time. It’s hard for me to imagine how he could have found the time or energy to be creative in those circumstances, but he did. And his verses are very powerful and life-affirming,” Maryusya said.

World ORT supports an initiative by Eli Rabinowitz to promote Zog nit Keynmol to new generations. Learning the lyrics, Maryusya said, had made her think about the Holocaust and its lessons for humanity.

“We have to learn that a person must not be humiliated or destroyed because of their ethnicity, faith or politics,” she said. “We can’t expect everyone to be a saint but the more we protect each other, the more tolerant we are, the stronger humanity will become. The alternative is extinction.”

Не считай, что ты достиг конца пути
Не считай, что ты достиг конца пути,
Если тучами затянута заря,
Долгожданный час не сможет не прийти,
Шаг за шагом мы идем к нему не зря.
Из страны зеленых пальм в страну снегов
Принесли мы нашу боль и нашу скорбь,
Но решимостью и твердостью шагов
Обернулась нами пролитая кровь.
Солнце встанет, смоет светом ночи тьму.
В прах бессильный наших обратит врагов,
Но если встать не будет суждено ему,
Эта песня новых призовет бойцов.
Общей кровью песни писаны слова —
Не беспечной птичьей трелью рождены,
Их слагали мы с оружием в руках
Средь развалин нескончаемой войны.
Так не считай, что ты достиг конца пути,
Если тучами затянута заря,
Долгожданный час не сможет не прийти,
Шаг за шагом мы идем к нему не зря.

Maryusya paid tribute to the World Jewish Congress’s #WeRemember campaign, in which World ORT is a proud partner.

“The tragedy of the Holocaust must be remembered,” she said. “It is necessary to discuss its consequences and, most importantly, it is necessary to draw the right conclusions. It seems to me that art in any form gives an excellent opportunity to express one’s own attitude about what happened. This is very important because it is an opportunity to reach out to different people and to be heard.”

Це неправда, що судилася нам смерть

Небеса блакитні, хоч і хмарний день.

Знайте, що голодні й змучені – ми тут

І за нами наші побратими йдуть

З теплих пальмових садів і до снігів

Ми пройдемо всюди, несучи свій гнів!

Наші краплі крові квітом розцвітуть

І хоробрості й відваги нам дадуть

 

Ясне сонце встане ранком осяйним.

Ворог згине, наші муки згинуть з ним!

Хоч нескоро день настане золотий,

Наша пісня обійде усі світи!

 

Наша пісня з крапель крові й барикад!

Наша пісня не з мелодій, а з гранат!

Серед горя й сліз могутній дух постав

Нашій мужності надії він додав!

 

Це неправда, що судилася нам смерть.

Небеса блакитні, хоч і хмарний день.

Скоро, скоро наші муки пропадуть!

Це земля тремтить: герої наші йдуть!

Не вважай, що обривається твій шлях,

Якщо хмарами затягнена зоря.

Летимо до щастя, як до неба – птах.

Крок за кроком ми йдемо, мов немовля.

 

Із країни пальм в країну, де сніги

Ми несли тугу, скорботу і наш біль

Кров пролита надала нам до снаги

І наблизила до нас жадану ціль.

 

Сонце зійде, змиє світлом довгу ніч

Стануть чорним прахом наші вороги

Нових сил привабить наш всесвітній клич,

І збере бійців ця пісня навкруги.

 

Кров’ю спільною написані слова,

Не птахи їх наспівали уві сні.

Була створена зі зброєю в руках

На руїнах безкінечної війни.

 

Так не вважай, що обривається твій шлях,

Якщо бачиш, що надії вже нема.

Летимо до щастя, як до неба – птах.

Крок за кроком ідемо ми не дарма!

עִם הַצּוֹרֵר יַחֲלֹף תְּמוֹלֵנוּ כְּמוֹ צֵל.
אַךְ אִם חָלִילָה יְאַחֵר לָבוֹא הָאוֹר
כְּמוֹ סִיסְמָה יְהֵא הַשִּׁיר מִדּוֹר לְדוֹר.
אַךְ אִם חָלִילָה יְאַחֵר לָבוֹא הָאוֹר
כְּמוֹ סִיסְמָה יְהֵא הַשִּׁיר מִדּוֹר לְדוֹר.

אַךְ אִם חָלִילָה יְאַחֵר לָבוֹא הָאוֹר
כְּמוֹ סִיסְמָה יְהֵא הַשִּׁיר מִדּוֹר לְדוֹר.
בִּכְתַב הַדָּם וְהָעוֹפֶרֶת הוּא נִכְתַּב;
הוּא לֹא שִׁירַת צִפּוֹר הַדְּרוֹר וְהַמֶּרְחָב,
כִּי בֵּין קִירוֹת נוֹפְלִים שָׁרוּהוּ כָּל הָעָם,
יַחְדָּיו שָׁרוּהוּ וְנאַגאַנִים בְּיָדָם.

עַל כֵּן אַל נָא תֹּאמַר: דַּרְכִּי הָאַחֲרוֹנָה
אֶת אוֹר הַיּוֹם הִסְתִּירוּ שְׁמֵי הָעֲנָנָה.
זֶה יוֹם נִכְסַפְנוּ לוֹ עוֹד יַעַל וְיָבוֹא,
וּמִצְעָדֵנוּ עוֹד יַרְעִים: אֲנַחְנוּ פֹּה!
זֶה יוֹם נִכְסַפְנוּ לוֹ עוֹד יַעַל וְיָבוֹא,

Не считай, что ты достиг конца пути
Не считай, что ты достиг конца пути,
Если тучами затянута заря,
Долгожданный час не сможет не прийти,
Шаг за шагом мы идем к нему не зря.
Из страны зеленых пальм в страну снегов
Принесли мы нашу боль и нашу скорбь,
Но решимостью и твердостью шагов
Обернулась нами пролитая кровь.
Солнце встанет, смоет светом ночи тьму.
В прах бессильный наших обратит врагов,
Но если встать не будет суждено ему,
Эта песня новых призовет бойцов.
Общей кровью песни писаны слова —
Не беспечной птичьей трелью рождены,
Их слагали мы с оружием в руках
Средь развалин нескончаемой войны.
Так не считай, что ты достиг конца пути,
Если тучами затянута заря,
Долгожданный час не сможет не прийти,
Шаг за шагом мы идем к нему не зря.

YIDDISH

Zog nit keyn mol, az du geyst dem letstn veg,
Khotsh himlen blayene farshteln bloye teg.
Kumen vet nokh undzer oysgebenkte sho,
S’vet a poyk ton undzer trot: mir zaynen do!

Fun grinem palmenland biz vaysn land fun shney,
Mir kumen on mit undzer payn, mit undzer vey,
Un vu gefaln iz a shprits fun undzer blut,
Shprotsn vet dort undzer gvure, undzer mut!

S’vet di morgnzun bagildn undz dem haynt,
Un der nekhtn vet farshvindn mit dem faynt,
Nor oyb farzamen vet di zun in der kayor –
Vi a parol zol geyn dos lid fun dor tsu dor.

Dos lid geshribn iz mit blut, un nit mit blay,
S’iz nit keyn lidl fun a foygl oyf der fray,
Dos hot a folk tsvishn falndike vent
Dos lid gezungen mit naganes in di hent.

To zog nit keyn mol, az du geyst dem letstn veg,
Khotsh himlen blayene farshteln bloye teg.
Kumen vet nokh undzer oysgebenkte sho –
Es vet a poyk ton undzer trot: mir zaynen do!

In the same year, an ORT Technology Center was opened, thanks to cooperation between World ORT and the Samara Region Ministry of Education.
