An Interrupted Life: The Diaries of Etty Hillesum
An Interrupted Life The Diaries of Etty Hillesum Author:Etty Hillesum My mother had given me An Interrupted Life: The Diaries of Etty Hillesum when I was twenty two years old. The words, thoughts, heart, and soul of this woman forever changed my life, my perspective, and what I would choose to do with my life. Perhaps what is most amazing about this book is that yes, it is written in the midst of the Holocaust by ... more »a young Dutch Jewish woman living in Amsterdam who eventually does get killed in Auschwitz, but the book is not about the war at all. The inner life, the inner strength and resources of this woman to face her life and still find absolute and startling joy in it despite what was happening all around her, is truly a marvel. I wish for everyone the chance to cross paths with this book.
customer review from amazon
"A testimony of faith, hope, and love, written in hell itself. It is impossible to read "An Interruped Life" without feeling humbled, astonished, at this woman's inner resources."
