Beyond being a poet with a lot of talent, Hanna Szenes was part of a paratrooper unit who volunteered to serve in the British army during World War II. In the frame of her actions as a combat soldier against the Nazis, she jumped along with her unit over occupied Hungary. However, during the line of duty she was caught by the Hungarians who surrendered her to the Nazis. She was tortured and executed, at only 23 years old.
After her death, among Szenes's things were found the songs she wrote in secret. Some have gained a lot of popularity like Ashrei Hagafrur, A Walk to Caesarea with the famous lyrics - "My God, my God,
may it never end."
The park won't tell you about this history, which is why you have us!
May her memory be blessed!
