A wreath honoring the memory of the late Hannah Szenesh, wartime Jewish heroine who was executed by the Nazis after she parachuted into the Balkans from Palestine to aid Jewish refugees, was placed on her grave today by members of the Israel youth delegation who came here to participate in the recently-concluded International Youth Festival. An Israel Army emblem was also placed on the grave. Officials of the Jewish state’s legation here witnessed the ceremonies.
