Lyrics to Song: All the Little Children
Words and music: Ben Reuven

Written following a visit to the remarkable Yad Layeled Memorial
at Yad Vashem in Jerusalem

All the little children
All the little children
All the little children
Gone away…

Little Jewish children
Little Jewish children
Not allowed to live another day.

A million little children
And half a million more
Into the fires of Auschwitz
Treblinka and Sobibor.

All those little children
Not allowed to grow
Denied their right to life
Killed for being Jews
By the monsters of the Reich.

So now, children, take my hand,
Come fly with me to the Promised Land
And there you shall see
Little Jewish children like yourselves
Playing happily and free
In our land of Israel

This is the story
That I shall tell you
About a miracle that befell
For out of the ashes of Auschwitz
And the Holocaust of Hell
There arose our State,
The State of Israel.



All the little children
Stars up in the sky
All the little children
Gazing down from on high
All the little Jewish children
They shall never die…
