Let us remember that in Vilkaviskis in 1941 lived around 3,500 Jewish men, women and children. Of these 3400 where murdered during the months of July to November 1941. Only 950 have any memorial - 2,450 Jewish men, women and children died and have no known memorial - they died without a trace !
May the L-rd remember the souls of the holy and pure ones who were killed, murdered, slaughtered, burned, drowned, and strangled for the sanctification of the Name, because, without making a vow, I shall give to charity on their behalf.
As reward for this, may their souls be bound in the Bond of Life, together with the souls of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; Sarah, Rebecca, Rachel, and Leah; and together with the other righteous men and women in the Garden of Eden

FROM THE SONGS OF MY BELOVED LAND My homeland -- land of beauty and poverty. The queen has no home, the king has no crown. There are seven spring days in the year And cold and rain all the rest.
But for seven days the roses bloom, And for seven days the dew drops shine, And for seven days, windows are open. And all your poor folk stand in the street And lift their pale faces toward the good light, And all your poor folk are happy.
