In 2017, we will commemorate the 140th anniversary of birth and the 75th anniversary of murder of Mordechai Gebirtig (1877 – 1942). We would like to invite all people to remember and honor the life and legacy of the great Yiddish poet and singer and bring him back to the public awareness.

Herzlich willkommen – zapraszamy – welcome – ברוכים־הבאים
Shik mir a shtral
Vos zol balaykhtn mayne vegn
Tsutrayb dem vint, vos er bashevet antkegn
Shik mir di zun, zi zol oystrikenen di trern
Vos yorn fil, zey flisn shtil
Un kenen nit oyfhern …
Send me a ray
To light my path
Drive away the wind that howls in my face
Send the sun to dry my tears
That have flown silently for years
And cannot stop …
(Author unknown, performed by Christian Dawid for our Yiddish film Boris Dorfman – A mentsh)
