Summary/Abstract: The aim of the article is to present the image of a Jewish family in the genre belonging to popular culture – that of song – and to show the specific relation between mother and her son, basing on the song Mein jidisze mame. In addition to the cultural and music history backgrounds, the most significant part of the article is devoted to analysis and interpretation. What is also tackled are genrerelated issues. Is it adequate to call a popular song an authentic trace of or an accurate testimony about history? Can it, because of its commonness, constitute the beginning of reflections on history? Can we claim that historical memory is preserved and stored in a song?
