IDF Paratroopers Jump in Honor of WWII Heroine Hannah Szenes

IDF performs an honorary parachute jump in memory of Hannah Szenes.

 

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a video of the international memorial paratrooper’s jump on the occasion of the one-hundredth birthday of Hannah Szenes can fill volumes.

Paratrooper Szenes was one of the first Jewish soldiers to drop behind enemy lines during WWII to assist in the liberation of concentration camps in Hungary.
