I learned the song, "Wiegala" a few years ago when I was asked to choose and play 2 songs for a Holocaust Remembrance Observance in the Army. I was drawn to this song because of its simple, haunting beauty. It's a lullaby meaning "cradle song" and was heard in work camps as mothers tried to sooth their frightened children. With my great interest in World War II, this song has come to mean a great deal to me.
