This is one of the most poignant resistance songs ever made. Written by a poet in the Vilnius ghetto, who was executed in front of the cabaret that used to sing it, it is a call to arms against racism, nazism, fascism and genocide.

We will endure
The world may smolder,
But we will endure
Despite our foes
Who crave our destruction.
We will endure!

We will endure
We are an eternal people.
No matter how wretched
The season, the hour,
We will endure.
