Of Hope & Endurance

Of Hope & Endurance


Of Hope and Endurance is a production based on the astonishing diaries of Etty Hillesum, a Jewish woman in her mid twenties, and written during the German occupation of Amsterdam in World War II.

Etty was part of a circle of young free thinking academics, centred around the psychologist and chirologist Julius Spier, (a student of Carl Jung) with whom she ultimately falls in love.

Despite the ever worsening conditions to which the Jewish population are subjected, Etty refuses to feel vengeance or hatred towards her oppressors, but only compassion, and a joy in the beauty of the world around her. A student of philosophy, religion and Russian literature, the spiritual beauty and insight of Etty’s writings belie her young age. One of her great ambitions was to be a published writer and to bring comfort and hope to people through her work. This ambition has now been realized, but only posthumously; the diaries were not released until the 1980’s,; over 40 years after her death, to great critical acclaim.
