Etty

28 January 2015

Etty, picture by Ricardo Barros

To commemorate the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, Great Saint Mary’s Church, the Woolf Institute and the Cambridge Theological Federation held a dramatic performance of Etty, a dramatisation of the diaries of Etty Hillesum.

Using only Etty Hillesum’s words, this play brought us to 1943 when Etty, a young Jewish woman, is about to be deported out of Holland and, ultimately, to Auschwitz.
