I don't know the exact source for pripetshok but i think heart is very good. Nacht Aktion is german and the title has nothing to do with the first one. It means that they were title in one song. During the movie scene the chorus sings the song OYF'N pripetshok and the following is the clearence of the Ghetto which was called from the SS as "Nacht Aktion" as a kind of operation code.
