Hannah Szenes grew up in a loving home filled with books, plays, and music. Unfortunately, the rise of the Nazis in her native Hungary forced Hannah to immigrate to Palestine, where she became an ardent Zionist pioneer. Haunted by the murder of the Jews by Hitler, she risked her own life to become a resistance fighter, vowing to save as many Jewish lives as possible.

This is the true, tragic story of a young girl who gave her life in the struggle to save the doomed Jews of Europe.
