Etty Hillesum: An Interrupted Life / Letters from Westerbork

For the first time, Etty Hillesum's diary and letters appear together to give us the fullest possible portrait of this extraordinary woman. In the darkest years of Nazi occupation and genocide, Etty Hillesum remained a celebrant of life whose lucid intelligence, sympathy, and almost impossible gallantry were themselves a form of inner resistance. The adult counterpart to Anne Frank, Hillesum testifies to the possibility of awareness and compassion in the face of the most devastating challenge to one's humanity. She died at Auschwitz in 1943 at the age of twenty-nine.

Reality is not entirely real to me, and that is why I can’t get down to doing things, fail to appreciate their true importance and significance. Reality does fascinate me, although only from behind my desk, not in the living and the doing.
