Esther "Etty" Hillesum is a young Jewish woman who lives with her family in the Dutch town of Deventer. Etty has two brothers, Jaap and Mischa. Mischa is a talented pianist and Jaap eventually becomes a medical doctor. Etty was raised in an assimilated Jewish home. In other words, the Hillesums were not observant Jews. There is no mention of attending religious services outside the home.

Etty Hillesum

Original Article Etty Hillesum , known as the Mystic of the Holocaust, was a young Jewish woman who lived in Amsterdam during the Nazi occupation and who died as one of the millions of victims of the Holocaust. In her short, remarkable life, Etty grew to see God in the depths of her own soul as well as in all other people. She was born in a Jewish family whose members suffered from some kind of nervous condition that resulted in illness and bouts of depression. She became a patient of Julius Spier, a German psychoanalyst who at one time was her lover; he was the spiritual teacher who set her on a quest for inner transformation. As part of her therapy, she began to keep a journal where she registered her practice of listening to her soul, and the result was her well-documented internal life which recorded her spiritual awakening.
