Jewish book: A life turned upside down

From 1941 to 1943, a twenty-seven-year-old Jewish woman kept a diary in Amsterdam. The result is an extraordinary document, both in terms of its literary quality and the faith it emanates from. An unwavering faith in man as he carries out his darkest misdeeds. Etty Hillesum left the Westerbork transit camp on 7 September 1943, from where she sent admirable letters to her friends, and died in Auschwitz on 30 November of the same year.
