Etty: A Conversation is an in-school program for high schools featuring a theatrical performance, curriculum guide and professional development for educators. Based on the diaries and letters of Etty Hillesum, a young Jewish Dutch victim of the Holocaust, it serves as a focus of cross-curricular study.
The Teacher’s Guide was created by Jane R. Denny, Center Director of Education. The Center is very grateful to Dr. Deborah Dwork and Alexandra Zapruder for their guidance and generosity in allowing us to use their research in this book. Excerpts from Dwork’s Children With A Star: Jewish Youth in Nazi Europe and Zapruder’s Salvaged Pages: Young Writers’ Diaries of the Holocaust appear in the Guide.
