Holocaust survivors and their families gather to sing Ofra Haza's Chai

600 Holocaust survivors and their families gather in Jerusalem to mark Holocaust Memorial Day 2018.

 

    In a moving, unique, performance, a choir of survivors and their familes gathered in Beit Avi-Chai in Jerusalem to share a song with a message of hope and defiance for this year's Yom HaShoah.

    The event, organised by Zikaron Basalon, was conducted by Koolulam, a social initiative that organizes mass singing events.

    The title of the song, which was chosen as Israel's 1983 Eurovision Song Contest entry, is the Hebrew word for 'Alive.' The lyrics run, in part; “I’m still alive, and both my eyes still look toward the light, I’ve suffered thorns, and yet borne flowers, ahead are years too numerous to count.”
