Unter dayne vayse shtern
One of the most beautiful songs to have come out of the Vilna ghetto, 'Unter dayne vayse shtern' (Under your white stars) was written by the poet Avraham Sutzkever and set to music by Avrom Brudno. Directly addressing God, the poem's speaker expresses the agony of his situation and calls out for help and acknowledgement.
