Habima Troupe to Perform in Vienna Theater on Anniversary of Nazi ‘anschluss’

Israel’s national theater troupe, the Habimah, arrived here to perform two Israeli plays at the Burg Theater. The first performance will coincide with the 31st anniversary of the “Anschluss,” the annexation of Austria to Nazi Germany. The play is “Hanna Senesz” about a Jewish woman paratrooper dropped behind German lines in Hungary on a secret mission during World War II. She was captured by the Nazis and executed.
