Description:

On Sunday, April 27, Susan Stein will perform her one-woman play, Etty at 7:30 p.m. in the Frick Center, Founders Lounge. The presentation of Etty is part if the College's annual Service of Rememberance and Holocoaust Education Project. (A Yom Ha Shohah service will begin at 7:00 p.m., Etty performance follows at 7:30 p.m.)

Set in 1943, Susan Stein's one-woman play Etty is based on the diaries and letters of Esther “Etty” Hillesum, a young Dutch Jewish student living in Amsterdam, who is deported out of Holland to a Nazi concentration camp. Etty's words and insights reach beyond her writings and allow us to witness the power of hope and individual thought during one of history's most horrific periods. During her confinement, Etty faces an ethical dilemma and struggles between her instinct to live and her willingness to die. Esther “Etty” Hillesum was 29 years-old when she was murdered at Auschwitz/Birkenau.

Admission to this event is free and open to the public.
