The inspiring 23-year-old Hannah Senesh died by firing squad in 1944, but has endured as one of Israel’s most iconic heroes. This first-ever major exhibition tells how this Budapest-born poet, diarist, and author of the hymn Eli, Eli discovered her love for the Land of Israel, courageously volunteered for a mission to rescue downed Allied fliers and Jews from Nazi-occupied Hungary, and ultimately became a lasting symbol of courage and determination.

Fire In My Heart: The Story of Hannah Senesh was created and is circulated by the Museum of Jewish Heritage – A Living Memorial to the Holocaust. For more information visit
