[Page 297]

  While the defiled was covered with your blood,
Clean and holy blood, the blood of atonement,
We shall carve with the blood of our hearts, your names
In the scroll of fasting and in the book of suffering.

Chaim Nachman Bialik


And These are the Names…

Let us remember

The names of the holy ones of the Korelitz community, let us carry their memories
with love in our afflicted hearts, and let us not forget them forever.

Let these pages be a candle of remembrance.

Yorzeit Candles

by Fruma Gulkovitch-Berger

Translated from the Yiddish by Harvey Spitzer

I still look at the time in the black annals
When I light yorzeit candles in memory of the martyrs,
I see the devil of the evil spirits
Who slaughtered and annihilated my people.

The first candle I light for you, my mother;
You were left all alone in your grave.
Dark, icy was the pain
When you gave up your soul.

Your only son had to get your grave ready,
But all your children accompanied you forever.
Although the same pain and tears choked everyone,
Your death was the hardest to envy.

Now after the great destruction of the six million,
The fires still burn, arouse and remind;
I ask you, mankind: How many candles should I light?
My exhausted brain cannot fathom this.

When the final accounts come into my mind,
There were such multi- branched families of young and old…
Six million candles burn for everyone together -
For brothers and sisters, for fathers and mothers.

Forms appear in the black fog,
From the appalling injustice which the world hid,
So much tragedy here in every shadow,
The blood still oozes and demands its due, intertwined with muteness.

If the flames of the candles could tell, if they could relate
The sorrow which they bear,
So that the world should hear and remember
Not to allow an executioner to arise again.
