Falmouth Jewish Congregation hosts Etty, a one-woman show starring Susan Stein about the life of Dutch Jew Etty Hillesum. Commemorating the 80th anniversary of Kristallnacht Falmouth Jewish Congregation invites the public to a special event marking the 80th anniversary of Kristallnach — Etty, a one-woman play performed by Susan Stein. This performance is free and will be followed by a discussion and reception. All are welcome and facilities are accessible. Entry is at the door only (no ticketing) and seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. Doors will open at 9:30 A.M. Etty is a touring one-woman play based on the diaries and letters of Etty Hillesum, adapted and performed by Susan Stein and directed by Austin Pendleton. Using only Etty Hillesum's words, Stein's adaptation brings us to 1941, when Esther "Etty" Hillesum, a young Dutch Jewish woman, is living in Amsterdam. In May 1940, Holland had capitulated; the Nazis immediately began their terror against the Jewish population. Early in 1941, Etty met a Jewish emigrant from Berlin who was twice her age: Julius Spier, the founder of “Psychochirology”, a psychotherapeutic type of palmistry. She became his assistant and lover. The relationship provided support to both of them in this ever-darker time. Etty’s words, insights and beliefs reach out from the Holocaust and allow us to see the power of hope and individual thought in the most extreme circumstances. In her gentle yet forthright way, Etty asks us not to leave her at Auschwitz but to let her have a bit of a say in what she hopes will be a new world. Learn more about Etty at www.ettyplay.org. The Falmouth Jewish Congregation Community Center is located at 7 Hatchville Road, East Falmouth. Facilities are handicap accessible and all are welcome at this Reform Jewish congregation serving the Upper Cape and beyond with opportunities for worship, lifelong Jewish learning, and engagement in social justice.
