Vilne, Vilne

The song 'Vilne, Vilne' was written in the early 1930s by A. L. Wolfson, to music by Alexander Olshanetsky. The song is a heartfelt tribute to the city of Vilna, a centre of Jewish cultural and intellectual life widely known in the Jewish world as the 'Jerusalem of Lithuania'. It was frequently performed in the Vilna ghetto during the Nazi occupation.

Two versions of this song can be listened to from the Jewish Music Archive at
