Hannah's War is an unforgettable love story about an exceptional woman and the dangerous power of her greatest discovery.

Jan EliasbergHannah's War by Jan Eliasberg

Groundbreaking physicist Dr. Hannah Weiss is on the verge of the greatest discovery of the 20th century -- splitting the atom. She understands that the energy released by her discovery can power entire cities or destroy them. Hannah believes the weapon's creation will secure an end to future wars, but as a Jewish woman living under the harsh rule of the Third Reich, her research is belittled, overlooked, and eventually stolen by her German colleagues.
