The Museum of Tolerance New York presents


A one woman play that challenges us to rethink questions of resistance, responsibility, and humanity

Tuesday, November 27, 2012 at 7:00pm

Etty is a touring one-woman theatrical play based on the diaries and letters of Etty Hillesum, adapted and performed by Susan Stein. Directed by Austin

Using only Etty Hillesum's words, Susan Stein's adaptation brings us to 1943 when Etty, a young Jewish woman, is about to be deported out of Holland. As she prepares for the three day journey eastward, she digs deeper into her soul to understand this piece of history and root out any hatred or bitterness, believing that humanity is the best and only solution for survival.

Followed by a Q&A with director Austin Pendleton

General Admission: $10
