This is "the voice of true heroine - a woman with the strength to live her own life, intense and full of care, even as the darkness of the Holocaust closes in...Etty's letters come alive with wonderful friends, and with the terrible events of that time." An adult counterpart to Anne Frank.

An inspiring and heartbreaking look at life inside a transit camp where Dutch Jews were kept before being sent to Auschwitz. Her letters reveal a woman of exceptional strength of spirit and character.
