Hatikva at Bergen Belsen, 1945

H/T A. Jay Adler

On April 20, 1945, five days after their liberation and on the eve of Shabbat, with people dying daily, inmates at Bergen Belsen Concentration Camp sang the song which would become the Israeli national anthem, “Hatikva.”

It was recorded by the BBC.

Let this serve as a potent reminder of why we fight.
