Mordecai Gebirtig, born in Krakow in 1877, was a carpenter, but was known as the "troubadour of the Jewish people." Gebirtig wrote Es Brent in response to a 1936 pogrom in the Polish town of Przytyk, hoping its message would encourage Jews to resist the rising tide of anti-semitic violence. During the war Es Brent was sung throughout the ghettos of Poland and Krakow's underground Jewish resistance adopted Es Brent as its anthem. In June 1942, Gebirtig was murdered by German soldiers while refusing to comply with a deportation order.
