Thanks, but I only copied the poem from Wikipedia. Nordahl Grieg wrote the poem to among the above mentioned youth organization after the Spanish Civil War (36-39) where several people from this youth organization joined the war in Spain and got killed while fighting fascism. It has since become a song for all youths wanting to make a change for the better. The youth organization is over hundred years old. Nordahl Grieg himself got killed and shot down in 43 while joining a British bomb mission as a war-reporter over Berlin in WWII.
