About Zog Nit Keyn Mol (Partisan Hymn): This haunting song, with Yiddish text written in 1943 by Hirsh Glick, was adopted as an anthem by numerous Jewish resistance groups in Eastern Europe during World War II. Since the war it has become an anthem of Holocaust survivors. This version for string quartet has (like the original song) five verses, distributed democratically among the four instruments. The text, in Yiddish and English, is included. The first line is: Zog nit keynmol az du gayst dem letzten veg (Never say that this is the end of the road). More: A recording of Paul Robeson singing Zog Nit Keyn Mol in Moscow in 1949 can be found here: WARNING: among the photos accompanying this recording is one apparently showing the front page of the New York Times for May 10, 1943, with a headline reading "Warsaw Ghetto Uprising an Over-Reaction" and several similarly scurrilous subheads. In fact this is a (poor attempt at) satire and not a genuine New York Times page. See this page:
