In 1939, as the Nazis worked to destroy the Jewish population of Europe, a group of Jews in Lublin, Poland, were ordered by their captors to sing as they were executed. One man in the group began to sing "Mir veln zey iberlebn, iberlebn, iberlebn” — "We will outlive them.” The song caught on. Soon the whole group sang and danced.

Their song was prophetic. Here we are, 80 years later, proving them right.

And while the hatred and violence of fascism and white nationalism still haunts us today, our resilience and solidarity - our power, together - remains stronger. Just as it was then.
