Bracha Bdil’s work “Yizkerem” was performed in Saint Petersburg, Russia, by the Festino choir, conducted by Alexandra Makroba.

The composition is for an A-cappella Choir and deals with the tragedy of the Holocaust for the Jewish nation. This composition is dedicated to Prof. Alexander Tamir (Wolkowyski), a Holocaust survivor who, as an 11 year old boy in the Vilna ghetto, composed the song about the massacre of “Ponar”, which became one of the symbols of the Holocaust.
