We invite you, your school choir or group to sing or recite Zog Nit Keynmol, the Partisan Song.
Please record it then share on YouTube, Facebook or Vimeo or send to me by Dropbox and I’ll post it for you. My address is firstname.lastname@example.org
You can do this in any language or combination you wish e.g. Yiddish, Hebrew, English or your home language.
It is ok to use an iPhone or other smartphone, making sure the camera is steady and you have good sound.
Although Yom Hashoah on 23 / 24 April is our first target date, this project s ongoing!
In doing this, you will connect the last remaining survivors, who originally sang it, with future generations, thus continuing their legacy.
At the same time, we can improve our understanding of the song’s powerful message of hope and heroes.
