Etty Hillesum: The Complete Works 1941-1943, bilingual, annotated and unabridged (2 volumes)


For the first time, the complete works of Etty Hillesum (1914-1943) are available in a two-volume, bilingual edition. This definitive collection of Etty Hillesum’s diaries and letters, including extensive footnotes and annotations to the text, chronicles Hillesum’s social, intellectual, and spiritual growth and her profound personal reflections. The original texts of her diaries and letters—in Dutch, with some German—are reproduced on each left page. The right page contains the English version, based on the 1983 and 2002 translations by Arnold J. Pomerans, but revised and supplemented. This new, authoritative edition invites readers to understand and appreciate more fully the unique journey and spirit of this remarkable woman.
