Etty Hillesum In the concentration camp of Westerbork, Etty had a spiritual awakening. She writes, "Those two months behind barbed wire have been the two richest and most intense months of my life, in which my highest values were so deeply confirmed. I have learnt to love Westerbork.” She refused to become a victim and, in suffering, found a new inner life she had never known before. Times of adversity teach us to rely on and develop our inner resources.
