Eli, Eli was written by the poet Channa Senesh, who emigrated from Hungary to Israel (then called Palestine) in the 1930s, but returned during the war to fight the Nazis. She wrote Eli, Eli after a walk on Israel's shoreline near Caesaria. She was executed by the Nazis on Nov. 7, 1944, at the young age of 23.
