Zog Nit Keynmol Az du Gueist Dem Letztn Veg…

Never say that you are walking on your last road…

With these words starts the song written by Hirsh Glick in the Vilna Forest for the Partisans.

With time, the song spread through all the forests, not just of Eastern Europe but actually from all over the world to join all those who where fighting the Germans and their allies or who, after the war, where remembering the uprisings and fights the Jews fought against their latest enemy.
