The Story

A life-affirming performance in song and poetry and story, taken from the actual diary of Hannah Senesh. This is the haunting and poignant real life story of a young freedom fighter who parachuted behind Nazi lines to save Hungarian Jews. Although Hannah was captured, tortured and put to death, she left a legacy of independence and heroism.
