This review is from: By Etty Hillesum - Life and Letters (Paperback)
This is a profound and beautiful diary of life in the hardest of times; genocide.
Etty is an intelligent and hopeful young woman who despite the evil surrounding her and coming closer she keeps seeing the beauty and good in mankind.
She even willingly goes into the camps (she and her family are excluded for a until the end as her brother is a pianist and the nazis loved their music) to give her people hope. She would have become a great writer if she hadn't died in the camps.
