Hannah Senesh: Heroism, Her Life and Times

Hannah Senesh is among Israel’s most important heroes, who died by firing squad in 1944 at age 23.

Trudy looks at the story of the Jews of Hungary under General Horthy and Adolf Eichmann – where murders began only in April 1944, and the extraordinary story of a courageous young Jewish woman who went back from Palestine to help.

This lecture is rescheduled from March 30.
