Arranged by British sympathizers, the "Kindertransport" provided Jewish parents with a means of protecting their children from the anti-Semitic terror raging through Germany, by sending them "into the arms of strangers" -- foster families in Great Britain.

Movie Summary

In 1944, 22-year-old Hannah Senesh parachuted into Nazi-occupied Europe with a small group of Jewish volunteers from Palestine. Theirs was the only military rescue mission for Jews that occurred in World War II. Narrated by Joan Allen, the multi-award-winning BLESSED IS THE MATCH follows the remarkable journey of this young Hungarian poet and diarist, paratrooper and resistance fighter. Told through Hannah's letters, diaries, and poems, her mother's memoirs, and the recollections of those who knew and loved her (including two of her fellow parachutists), the film traces her life from her childhood in Budapest to her time in British-controlled Palestin - where she was drawn by the Kibbutz Movement that sought to build an independent Jewish state - to her daring mission to rescue Jews in her native Hungary. Both devastating and inspiring, BLESSED IS THE MATCH offers an intimate portrait of a singularly talented, courageous and complex girl who believed that one person could be a flame that burns brightly in even the darkest hours.
