The remains of Hannah Senesh, Palestinian heroine who was executed by Hungarian Nazi authorities after parachuting into Europe during the war to aid in the underground movement of Jews to Palestine, will be reburied on Mount Herzl here tomorrow.

The coffin containing her remains was transferred from an Israel warship to Haifa yesterday with full military honors. Traditional prayere for the dead were recited by the Israel Army Chief Chaplain as the coffin was placed on the soil of the Jewish state.
