Blessed Is the Match: The Life and Death of Hannah Senesh

2008 NR

Joan Allen narrates this riveting portrait of Hungarian poet Hannah Senesh, a remarkable woman who risked her own life to parachute behind enemy lines -- enduring capture, torture and, ultimately, death -- to rescue Jews from Nazi persecution.
