Etty, through a time of conflict and despair, was able to maintain her faith and search for meaning in life. In a post show discussion the group explored key questions from their EPR GCSE such as ‘how do humans respond to conflict?’ and ‘how can we cope with suffering?’.

Students remarked how they could learn from Etty’s incredible inner strength which was crucial in her personal experience in the time of Jewish persecution.
