גאט האט פארנאהאלטן זיין פנים

אלוהים הסתיר פניו

God Hid His Face

The Book in English

The poem translated to Hebrew by Ada & Meir Holtzman z"l, 1998:

Rajzel Zychlinsky:

 God Hid His Face

Translated from Yiddish by Aaron Kramer

All the roads led to death,
all the roads.

All the winds breathed betrayal,
all the winds.

At all the doorways angry dogs barked,
at all the doorways.

All the waters laughed at us,
all the waters.

All the nights fattened on our dread,
all the nights.

And the heavens were bare and empty,
all the heavens.

God hid His face.
