it was amazing
bookshelves: memoir, jewish
Recommended for: all Jews
Read in December, 2007

This is an amazing book that collects Hannah Senesh's diary, her letters, and oral history testimonies from people who knew her. She was an incredibly sophisticated young woman even at 13 when the book begins. Her life was tragically cut short at the age of 21; re-reading it this time I was speculating how she could have gone on to become a prime minister of Israel or been a diplomat in the Middle East peace negotiations.

All Jews who care about Judaism and all people who care about Jews and the predilection of men to destroy one another, time and time again - this is who should read this book.

K. Thanks for reminding me of this amazing diary! I read it about seven years ago, but I forgot it(along with I-have-no-idea-how-many others). Your bringing it back to mind is like handing me the book and all the pleasure I associate with reading it.
