Maryusya Zarembo, an 8th grade student at ORT de Gunzburg School, is in awe of Hirsh Glick’s defiantly optimistic lyrics to Zog Nit Keynmol, the anthem of the Jewish partisans.

“This is the first time I’ve read or heard the poetry of someone from that time. It’s hard for me to imagine how he could have found the time or energy to be creative in those circumstances, but he did. And his verses are very powerful and life-affirming,” Maryusya said.

World ORT supports an initiative by Eli Rabinowitz to promote Zog nit Keynmol to new generations. Learning the lyrics, Maryusya said, had made her think about the Holocaust and its lessons for humanity.

“We have to learn that a person must not be humiliated or destroyed because of their ethnicity, faith or politics,” she said. “We can’t expect everyone to be a saint but the more we protect each other, the more tolerant we are, the stronger humanity will become. The alternative is extinction.”

Maryusya paid tribute to the World Jewish Congress’s #WeRemember campaign, in which World ORT is a proud partner.

“The tragedy of the Holocaust must be remembered,” she said. “It is necessary to discuss its consequences and, most importantly, it is necessary to draw the right conclusions. It seems to me that art in any form gives an excellent opportunity to express one’s own attitude about what happened. This is very important because it is an opportunity to reach out to different people and to be heard.”

Maryusya - thank you so much for expressing your thoughts so well. It is inspiring to know that the words of Hirsh Glik, 23 years old when he wrote this in 1943, resonate with you, a young student, 75 years later, and that you have shared this us, in such a powerful way. 👍
