About the book:

Hero Martyr Poet
The inspiring story of a remarkable life cut short.

I dont think Hannah wanted to die for the sake of having her memory exalted in history or to prove herself equal to a romantic image she conceived for herself. Her purpose wasnt to die. She died for her lifes purpose.U.S. Senator John McCain, in Why Courage Matters

Hannah Senesh, poet and Israels national heroine, has come to be seen as a symbol of Jewish heroism. Safe in Palestine during World War II, she volunteered for a mission to help rescue fellow Jews in her native Hungary. She was captured by the Nazis, endured imprisonment and torture, and was finally executed at the age of twenty-three.

Like Anne Frank, she kept a diary from the time she was thirteen. This new edition brings together not only the widely read and cherished diary, but many of Hannahs poems and letters, memoirs written by Hannahs mother, accounts by parachutists who accompanied Hannah on her fateful mission, and insightful material not previously published in English.

Described by a fellow parachutist as a spiritual girl guided almost by mysticism, Hannahs life has something of value to teach everyone. Now the subject of a feature-length documentary, Blessed Is the Match: The Life and Death of Hannah Senesh, Hannahs words and actions will inspire people from each generation to follow their own inner voices, just as she followed hers.
