Q: Where is there a hint in the film that many Jews, both in and outside of Israel, saw what was happening as a sign of “redemption” and leading up to the coming of the Mashiach?

I picked Ruth Stern. What she said is that she went to Israel to be a nurse for the soldiers. She was scared, but the person who lead her to her room gave her confidence. I learned from her from her that even if you are going to do something good, you can be scared.
