2018 marks the tenth anniversary of an International Congress that gathered in Ghent to celebrate and discuss the work of Etty Hillesum, a woman who died in Auschwitz, whose diaries and letters have been translated into 67 languages. She is unquestionably one of the most singular voices from the Holocaust. But most in our country have never heard of her. So, who was Etty Hillesum? She was a Dutch Jew who died at the age of 29, leaving behind deeply moving, intellectually profound diaries and letters written during the last two years of her life under Nazi occupation. We only have these works because she threw them from a train on her way to the death camp. This volume is their visionary responses to Etty Hillesum.
