description: Gideon Klein was a pianist/composer who was imprisoned in the Terezin (Theresienstadt) concentration camp, near Prague. He wrote this for one of the treble choirs in the camp. Klein and most of the prisoners were ultimately murdered in the death camps. The lyrics may be an amorous conversation between two teenagers who are breaking up, or possibly a message of farewell as the boy boards the train for the death camp.
