16. Somewhere over the Rainbow
Well known from the film `The Wizard of Oz` This song, written by Yip Harbug, was published in 1939, at a time when the Jews in Europe were coming under increased hostility. They were trapped, unable to “fly”. It is this feeling of hope within the song that we can all relate to and it is hope that helped the Jewish people through the Holocaust.
This song reminds us that though we face uncertain events, we still have hope, and our hope is in God.
