Etty Hillesum: An Interrupted Life the Diaries, 1941-1943 and Letters from Westerbork

by Etty Hillesum (Author), Eva Hoffman (Foreword)

For the first time, Etty Hillesum’s diary and letters appear together to give us the fullest possible portrait of this extraordinary woman in the midst of World War II.

In the darkest years of Nazi occupation and genocide, Etty Hillesum remained a celebrant of life whose lucid intelligence, sympathy, and almost impossible gallantry were themselves a form of inner resistance. The adult counterpart to Anne Frank, Hillesum testifies to the possibility of awareness and compassion in the face of the most devastating challenge to one’s humanity. She died at Auschwitz in 1943 at the age of twenty-nine.
