Blessed is the Match
Director: Roberta Grossman
Country: USA, 2008, Documentary
Duration: 85 Min
Language: English
Narrated by three-time Academy Award nominee Joan Allen, Blessed Is the Match is the first documentary feature about Hannah Senesh, the World War II-era poet and diarist who became a paratrooper, resistance fighter and modern-day Joan of Arc. Safe in Palestine in 1944, Hannah joined a mission to rescue Hungarys Jews. Shockingly, it was the only outside rescue mission for Jews during the Holocaust. Hannah parachuted behind enemy lines, was captured, tortured and ultimately executed by the Nazis. Incredibly, her mother Catherine witnessed the entire ordeal  first as a prisoner with Hannah and later as her advocate, braving the bombed-out streets of Budapest in a desperate attempt to save her daughter. With unprecedented access to the Senesh family archive, this powerful story unfolds through the writings and photographs of Hannah and Catherine Senesh.
In person: Roberta Grossman, Director

Facilitator: Karin Anderson, Dala Consulting Group
Audience Award for best documentary at the Washington Jewish Film Festival and the Hong Kong Jewish Film Festival
