Wait for Me (1941)

Konstantin Simonov
Description: Simonov served as correspondent for the military paper, Red Star, along with Ehrenburg and other prominent writers. His love poem was heard on the radio throughout the war, recited by millions as though it were a prayer, repeated by women as tears streamed down their faces, and adopted by men as their own expression of the mystical power of a woman’s love. It was produced for stage and cinema and set to seventeen different melodies.
