Etsy Hilessium: An Interupted Life: Letters From Westerbork

This was a profound read. Being drawn into Etty’s journal for her final two years of life on this earth results in an unexpectedly intimate encounter with a gifted and exuberant young lady. As you read her entries, you get a sense of how she, and the rest of the Jewish population, were slowly boxed in to a corner from which there was simply no escape. But Etty is a light in the encroaching darkness. The book is full of reflection, contemplation and insight on life and suffering.
