Hanna attended the social-pedagogical seminary (Sozialpädagogisches Seminar) of the Verein Jugendheim in Berlin-Charlottenburg and trained as a kindergarten carer/day-care provider (Kindergärtnerin/Hortnerin). In 1938, she started her Hachshara for immigration to Palestine. She established a kibbutz and worked with children in Petah Tikva. Hanna was a member of the Mapai Party (the workers' party in Israel) and was involved in educational reforms. In 1972, she volunteered as a mentor for young teachers, kindergarten carers and soldiers working with distressed children, using psychological methods.
