Duration   30m

Hannah Szenes was just 23 years old when she parachuted into enemy territory in an attempt to help her fellow Jews. Five years earlier she had left her home in Budapest, but she risked her life to return to Nazi-occupied Europe. In the Netherlands, Marion Pritchard sheltered a Jewish family. One day, a local Nazi collaborator came to her door when the children were out of their hiding place. He threatened to expose them, and Marion fought back. Join the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum to learn about dynamic women who resisted the Nazis and their collaborators during the Holocaust.
