Anna Sokolow in her "The Exile"

The Exile was the first of Sokolow's many compositions on Jewish themes. The piece was composed of two sections. The first, "I had a garden...," depicted Jewish life in the safety of pre-Nazi Europe, while the second, "The beast is in the garden...," portrayed the arrival of the terrifying beast of Nazism.
