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

Consultation with scholars on a 90-minute documentary film about Hannah Senesh (1921-44), a Hungarian-born poet and author.

"Blessed Is the Match: The Life and Death of Hannah Senesh" is a 90-minute documentary film about Hannah Senesh, the World War II-era poet and diarist who became a soldier, martyr and national heroine in Israel. Set against the backdrop of World War II, the Hungarian Holocaust, the Kibbutz Movement and the early years of Israel, the film combines a dramatic mother-daughter tale with thoughtful analysis of Hannah’s life and times, as well as the historical forces that set in motion Hannah’s perilous mission – the only outside rescue mission for Jews during the Holocaust.
