Two Worlds, One Family

I've actually been thinking about this for a while now but if I had the right pictures, I would totally make a slide show video using the Phil Collins song "Two Worlds, One Family" from Disney's Tarzan about Jews in Europe pre-WWII and during WWII and Jews in Israel at that time. It would go something like this:

(Pictures of Jews in the shtetl in Europe)
Put your faith in what you most believe in
Two worlds, one family
Trust your heart
Let fate decide
To guide these lives we see

(Pictures of chalutzim in Israel)

A paradise untouched by man
Within this world blessed with love
A simple life, they live in peace

Softly tread the sand below your feet now
Two worlds, one family
Trust your heart
Let fate decide
To guide these lives we see

(Pictures of Jews in the shtetl in Europe)
Beneath the shelter of the trees
Only love can enter here
A simple life, they live in peace

(Pictures of Jews building up the land of Israel)

Raise your head up
Lift high the load
Take strength from those that need you
Build high the walls
Build strong the beams
A new life is waiting
But danger's no stranger here

(Pictures of Jews during antisemitism in Europe)
No words describe a mother's tears
No words can heal a broken heart
A dream is gone, but where there's hope

(Pictures of European Jews going in boats to Israel, pictures of Israel all built up)
Somewhere something is calling for you
Two worlds, one family
Trust your heart
Let fate decide
To guide these lives we see

Doesn't it fit so well?

Search on Google Images, see if you can find pictures, because that would be really cool, actually. And the music fits well.
