Quotes & Highlights

“A powerful and moving 60 minutes… Stein’s performance is impeccable… one can’t help but believe she is Etty.” —_The Epoch Times _
“This entire smart script is from Hillesum’s own words, in letters she wrote and a diary she kept. Stein’s spot-on performances clearly honors both her subject and anyone who has died at hatred’s hellish hands.” —_Philadelphia Inquirer _

Description

Written and performed by Susan Stein, and directed by Austin Pendelton, Etty is based on the 1941-1943 diaries and letters of Etty Hillesum, a young Jewish woman about to be deported out of Holland. Complex. Loveable. Courageous. Her insights and beliefs reach out from the Holocaust exuding the power of hope and individual thought in the most extreme circumstances.
