“Etty,” based on Holocaust diaries, comes to campus

“Etty,”a one-woman play adapted and performed by Susan Stein will come to UNCG Wednesday, Nov. 8, at 7 p.m. The play is based on the letters and diaries of Etty Hillesum, a Dutch Jewish Woman who witnessed the Nazi occupation of Holland and was killed in the Auschwitz concentration camp at age 29.

The intimate portrait of a young woman during the Holocaust has direct relevance to a wide range of academic disciplines. Stein is an experienced educator and will be available to visit classes, interact with groups of students or faculty and participate in panel discussions on Nov. 7 and Nov. 8. Please contact Roy Schwartzman at doc_roy@uncg.edu to schedule her for a class, gathering or meeting.

The performance, in Ferguson 100, is free and open to the community. Free parking is available in Lot 7 behind the Graham Building in “C” permit spaces.

The event is co-sponsored by the Communication Studies Department, the Jewish Studies Program, the Religious Studies Department, the The Alfred and Anita Schnog Family Foundation, the International Programs Center Kohler Award Grant, the Lloyd International Honors College, the History department and the Holocaust & Genocide Studies Research & Teaching Network.
