Abstract :
This article is a first exploration of Etty Hillesum’s fortythree handwritten quotations as they appear in her copy of Levenskunst: Gedachten van Week tot Week (‘Savoir-vivre: Thoughts from Week to Week’), compiled by A.J.C. van Seters. Next to remarkable similarities and differences with Hillesum’s diaries, this research explores six unknown sources of her spirituality. Hillesum’s copy of Levenkunst contains eleven quotations from six authors who are not mentioned in her diary: Ebba Pauli, Kees Schuurman, Frederik van Eeden, Giovanni Papini, Julia de Beausobre and Alexander Eastman.
