Synopsis:
Two men wait through the night in British-controlled Palestine for dawn--and for death.  One is a captured English officer.  The other is Elisha, a young Israeli freedom fighter whose assignment is to kill the officer in reprisal for Britain's execution of a Jewish prisoner.  Elisha's past is the nightmare memory of Nazi death camps.  He is the only surviving member of his family.  His future is a cherished dream of life in the promised homeland.  But at daybreak his present will become the tortured reality of a principled man ordered to commit cold-blooded murder.  Resonant with feeling, Dawn is an unforgettable journey into the human heart--and an eloquent statement about the moral basis of the new Israel."

"An illuminating document . . . the plight of traditional Jewish morality confronted with the modern world of power politics and of murder."--Maxwell Geismar
