Etty Hillesum: A modern Mystic with the voice of Etty spoken by Vicky Field.
Researcher and onetime teacher of religious education.
Etty Hillesum (1914 to 1943) was a secular Dutch Jew who, between 1941 and 1942, wrote a deeply spiritual, philosophically informed and personally frank diary. It contains profound reflection on God and the human condition in the context of the worst things human beings do to one another and speaks with cogent force to many concerns of our own day. Rowan Williams has described the diary as, ”A Confessions of St Augustine for our day”, and adds that, “Etty Hillesum deserves to be read far more deeply and extensively than she has been thus far.”
