Customer Review

on May 22, 2010
I can't recommend these diaries enough. In a time when many people are turning away from established religions to find their own path Etty Hillesum speaks for them belonging neither to a Christian or Jewish Church. She made an extraordinary spiritual journey during one of the most dangerous times in twentieth century history, as a Jew in occupied Holland. Her path is somewhat unconventional becoming involved with Julius Spier a psychotherpist who specialised in chriology (hand reading). However, the conclusions and realisations she comes to are incredible considering her cicumstances. Her spiritual development and subsequent maturity took place during such a short period of time 1941-43 and this unfolds in these diaries and letters.

It really is a remarkable testament to how the human mind can evolve.
