“Zog nit keyn mol az du geyst dem letstn veg” (Never say that you are going on your final road) is one of the best-known Partisan songs. Written by Hirsh Glik in the Vilna ghetto in 1943, it became widely known in the ghetto, among Partisans and in the camps. Nowadays, the song is included in many observances around the world to commemorate the Holocaust. There are, however, many more important songs and pieces of music and thus the Center’s spring events will focus on the topic of music and the Holocaust. The performance of the Defiant Requiem is also part of the new series for the humanities—“Carolina’s Human Heart”—launched by the College of Arts and Sciences for the academic year 2016-17.
