A documentary on Etty Hillesum, the Dutch woman who became known in the early eighties after the posthumous publication of her war diaries, titled ‘An Interrupted Life’. The book soon got translated in many languages and her literary legacy shows that, if she hadn’t been killed in the nazi death camp Auschwitz, she would have become a famous Dutch writer. The documentary Etty Hillesum – In Search of a Wartime Writer sheds a light on the person behind the author, and comes up with previously unknown facts.
