Etty Hillesum: A Life Transformed
This is the true story of a young Dutch Jewish woman during World War II: her somewhat wild youth, and the transformation of her life after the Nazis invaded Holland until her death in Auschwitz a couple of years later. It is told through her letters and diaries, with an insightful commentary by Patrick Woodhouse.
Etty refused to go into hiding, insisting instead on living her life to the full while facing inevitable death - yet she did not deny her fears. Without following one particular religion she was open to the insights of them all to help her on her journey, and almost against her will she grew closer and closer to God. To those around her in Amsterdam and in the concentration camps, she was a light in the darkness, a constant friend to those in despair.
This is one of the most inspiring and heart-warming books I have ever read.
