Here's my recent soundtrack created for a 1919 mute documentary:

In August 1919, US president Woodrow Wilson appointed Major-General James G. Harbord to lead a commission investigating conditions in the Near East, and to advise on the feasibility of creating a U.S. mandate in the fledgling Armenian state, in the wake of the Armenian genocide in the Ottoman empire in 1915.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
For everything there is a season,
and a time for every matter under heaven:
a time to be born, and a time to die;
a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
a time to kill, and a time to heal;
a time to break down, and a time to build up;
a time to weep, and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
a time to seek, and a time to lose;
a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
a time to tear, and a time to sew;
a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
a time to love, and a time to hate;
a time for war, and a time for peace.
