Soon We Will Become A Song

Created by OgingerO on 01 Dec 2021 | Collaborator: Moshe Kaye

The 'Soon We Will Become A Song' project pays tribute to fallen soldiers and victims of terror by turning their poems and letters into songs. Their texts have been collected and turned into lyrics.

The project’s lyrics and musicians’ use of diverse melodies have moved the entire nation — as many of the texts were written by soldiers in their early twenties. Songs such as the three translated below will be broadcasted on radio stations throughout Israel on Yom HaZikaron, Israel’s memorial day for fallen soldiers and victims of terror.
