ETTY: An Inspiring One-Woman Show With Susan Stein
Etty Hillesum is a young Jewish Dutch woman writing diaries in Amsterdam during the Second World War. In these diaries and later, her letters from Westerbork concentration camp, Etty bears witness to what it means to be human and commits herself to a radical choice: not to hate, even as she opens her heart to the horrors unfolding around her. She wrestles to write about the life she is living — her loves, her work, her humor, her spirituality, and her transformation.
This one-woman play, performed by actress/playwright, Susan Stein, told in Hillesum’s own words, opens us to the moment of her becoming, just as the world around her is coming undone. The second act asks the audience to join the conversation, live & online with Susan Stein, fostering dialogue on human rights, resistance, and personal responsibility.
