Hi Joe:

Thanks for the Link to "Vilna."

According to Eleanor and Joseph Mlotek in "Songs of Generations:"
"... sung in the Vilna Ghetto, published by Shmerke Kaczerginsky in 1947.

... almost every program in the ghetto opened with it. Original words by A.L. Wolfson (1867-1946) and music by Alexander Olshanetsky (1892--1946) were printed in the compilation "Vilne" in 1935.

Bonus Track from the CD, "The Eternal Question (Di Alte Kashe): Fraidy Katz Sings Yiddish" (Kame'a Media).   Available from CDBaby, Amazon, etc. Distributed by Hatikvah Music International.
