“Etty” is hosted by the Norman Miller Center for Peace, Justice and Public Understanding. The play is free and open to the public.

Ester “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.
