Susan Stein is the content author and production editor for the Etty website. Ricardo Barros is the photographer for all our original artwork. Jean Pierre LeJacq is the designer and webmaster.
The background image for the website is a photo of the broken rails of the former train track at Westerbork, the World War II concentration camp where Etty Hillesum was imprisoned.
Our logo is an image of the last known writing from Etty, a postcard dated September 7, 1943, thrown from a cattle truck, describing her and her family's sudden inclusion on the transport to Auschwitz from Westerbork.
The visual design is accomplished with CSS. We use a liquid design where the design elements move to flow content into the whole screen, or a portion of the screen, no matter what the size of the browser window or the font size.
Our website contains descriptions of the Holocaust and may not be appropriate for younger children. There is no nudity, sexual material, or direct physical violence. There may be mild expletives related to the content of the play.
