Friling.Springtime.Весна.Song yiddish.

The moving Yiddish song ‘Friling’ (Spring) was written by Shmerke Katsherginski in April 1943, after the death of his wife Barbara in the Vilna ghetto. Set to a tango melody composed by fellow inmate Avrom Brudno, the song’s lyrics tell of the author’s sadness and sense of despair and loneliness …

I roam through the ghetto from alley to alley,
And I cannot find any haven;
My beloved is not here, how can I bear it?
Oh, people, at least say something.
The blue sky illuminates my home
But what benefit do I
Vodpod videos no longer available.
