Holocaust Remembrance Day
The town is burning

Lyrics and music: Mordechai Gvirtig

Written in 1938

Brothers in the burning town

Our whole town is burning

The black winds will rage

The flames of destruction will burn

No traces of it will remain

It is burning down

And you are standing idle

Without helping

Without putting out the burning flame

The fire of the town


Brothers the fire, the burning!

The help is only in your hands

Quickly stretch out a loving hand

And save from death

With your blood extinguish the flame

Quickly extinguish the blood

Do not stand at a distance

Because the fire is rising

Do not stand idle

It is a big fire
