"I know that a new and kinder day will come......And there is only one way of preparing the new age, by living it even now in our hearts."

  • Etty Hillesum (1914-1943), a young Dutch Jewish woman, died in Auschwitz at the age of 29.  Forty years later, the publication of her diaries (An Interrupted Life) revealed to the world her remarkable voice.  In her final years, Etty expressed a deeply ecumenical mysticism, drawing on scripture, literature, and Christian sources.
