The Return, at Maine Jewish Museum, 267 Congress Street, Portland, April 6, at 4 pm

“I will write these times like faint brush strokes against the great wordlessness of God . . . wield this fountain pen like a hammer, my words so many hammer blows,” Etty Hillesum wrote in her diary in Nazi-occupied Amsterdam in 1942. The Thinking Heart Ensemble will perform selected passages from their work based on Hillesum’s journal and letters, share about their journey to Auschwitz-Birkenau to return her voice where it was taken from her and lead discussion about the relevance of her legacy of courage and love.
