Dir. Roberta Grossman | USA | 2008 | 85 mins | English
Hannah Senesh was just 22 when she was part of a small group of Jewish volunteers from Palestine that parachuted into Nazi-occupied Europe: the only military rescue mission for Jews during the Holocaust. Her mission ended in tragedy when she was captured and executed in a Gestapo prison, yet her poetry and diaries have left an inspirational legacy.
Roberta Grossman's film tells Hannah's story as much through the eyes of Catherine Senesh as those of the heroine herself, bringing their letters and diaries to life with gripping reconstructions to explain how thier bond, as well as her love for her people. Unmissable.
