Join Tuvia Book for a program of learning, inspiration, and poetry to celebrate the life of Hannah Szenes, Zionist pioneer, poet and paratrooper who was executed by the Hungarian Arrow Cross – Nazi collaborators – at the age of 23. This session will examine Hannah's motivation for her heroic selfless actions, through her own words and through recollections of those who knew her.

"A voice called, and I went.
I went, for a voice called."

(Hannah Szenes, 1921-1944)
