Etty Play to be Performed at St. Norbert College

Facebook / Tweet

From St. Norbert College, January 15, 2019
by Mike Counter,, 920-403-3089

“Etty,” a one-woman play based on the diaries and letters of Etty Hillesum, adapted and performed by Susan Stein and directed by Austin Pendleton, will be held on Tuesday, Jan. 29, at 7 p.m. at Dudley Birder Hall, 400 Grant St. The play is free and open to the public with a discussion to follow.

Esther “Etty” Hillesum was the Dutch author of confessional letters and diaries which describe both her religious awakening and the persecutions of Jewish people in Amsterdam during the German occupation. In 1943, she was deported and killed in Auschwitz concentration camp.

“Etty” encompasses theatrical and educational experiences designed to challenge participants to reexamine assumptions about the Holocaust and explore issues of resistance, human rights, social justice and individual responsibility.
“Etty” is hosted by the Norman Miller Center and the Killeen Chair of Theology & Philosophy Lecture Series at St. Norbert College.
