The Fife-Davis Family Annual Jewish Book Fair Event: “Hannah’s War” by Jan Eliasberg


Co-hosted by Jewish Woman’s Club

In 1945, Dr. Hannah Weiss, an Austrian-Jewish physicist, is removed from her essential work with the Critical Assemblies Team at the Los Alamos National Laboratories and is taken for interrogation. Is Hannah a Nazi spy or is she protecting a far more personal and dark secret of her own? Hannah’s War is a vivid, page-turning, and inspiring re-imagination of the final months of World War II, and the brilliant researchers behind the first atomic bomb. This unforgettable love story about an exceptional woman and the dangerous power of her greatest discovery.

Jan Eliasberg is an award-winning writer and director. Her directing career includes dramatic pilots for Miami Vice and Wiseguy, countless episodes of television series including Nashville, Parenthood, Blue Bloods, NCIS: Los Angeles and many more.
