The Partisans’ Song, Zog Nit Keynmol, written by Hirsh Glik, age 22, in the Vilna Ghetto in 1943, is one of the most powerful songs of resistance and defiance ever written.
It has been the hymn of Holocaust survivors – a legacy that was in danger of dying out. Now, through this inspiring and meaningful global project, the Partisans’ Song is fast becoming the anthem for a new generation of Upstanders.
