Description:

Hannah Senesh, poet and Israels national heroine, has come to be seen as a symbol of Jewish heroism. Safe in Palestine during World War II, she volunteered for a mission to help rescue fellow Jews in her native Hungary. She was captured by the Nazis, endured imprisonment and torture, and was finally executed at the age of twenty-three. Like Anne Frank, she kept a diary from the time she was thirteen. This new edition brings together not only the widely read and cherished diary, but many of Hannahs poems and letters, memoirs written by Hannahs mother, accounts by parachutists who accompanied Hannah on her fateful mission, and insightful material not previously published in English. Timed to coincide with the release of the first-ever documentary feature on the extraordinary human being behind the diary and writings. Described by a fellow parachutist as a spiritual girl guided almost by mysticism, Hannahs courage and nobility will inspire a new generation of people to follow their own inner voice just as she followed hers.
