"Berlin [Next Year in Jerusalem]" as written by and Peter Carlsohn Michael Ulvsgard....
I was twenty-five in Berlin '38.
I had just bought a little store,
And the war was close
Then I met her,
Rebekah with her wonderful smile.
And I was in love,
And she was in love, the future was ours
We married soon, and Joseph and Sarah came.
We loved them so, our dream came true.

Clouds gathered dark,
I couldn't understand it.
I simply didn't see it,
I should have, but I didn't.

Under the star, my heart beats there
It was just because of the star.
Next year in Jerusalem,
Next year in Jerusalem.

And late one night,
I woke up from the noise in the street.
People were shouting,
People were running in the stairs.
They knocked on the door,
And then they came rushing in
With guns and no compassion, they said
'You have to come,
One suitcase that's all, you must go now

We ran down the stairs.
Joseph wasn't fast enough,
They kicked him and he fell,
And he was only three.
I picked him up, and took him in my arms.
They took us to the train,
They packed us like cattle.
Rebekah squeezed my hand, she said
'We must stay together no matter what happens'

How can I describe?
Cause when we arrived, they took Rebekah
And the children aside, and we all cried.
She looked at me, I'll never forget her eyes,
She said, 'I'll take care of the children'
And then they were gone, gone

Next year in Jerusalem,
Next year in Jerusalem.

We must not forget, we can Never forget.
Because of the star, we must not forget.
