Hannah's poetry celebrates the potential of one human being to accomplish something significant against all odds, in the most dire of circumstances. Though Hannah's family was not religious, they identified as Jewish. As Hannah turned twenty-one, even though she was safe in Palestine, she could not escape the dark shadow that World War II cast over Europe. She felt she had to help in whatever way she could. Her response was extreme. but so were the times. It was around this time that she wrote one of her most famous poems, Blessed is the Match. Hannah's urge to write had always been strong.
