This arrangement of Ani Ma'amin employs an old Jewish folk melody. It is said that during the Holocaust of WWII, Jewish prisoners in German concentration camps sang this song as they were being marched to the gas chambers. Because of that strong historical association, the song is often sung in synagogues during the Martyrology service that is part of the Yom Kippur liturgy and during services for Holocaust Remembrance Day. A pronunciation guide for the Hebrew is provided, as well as an alternative English text.
