Tamelijk interessant maar zeer slecht geredigeerd boek over vier Joodse schrijfsters en hoe zij zich verhielden tot de Jodenvervolging. Verschrikkelijk veel herhalingen, en ook wel wat ongefundeerde beweringen. Had gehoopt dat ik wijzer zou worden mbt Anne Frank en Etty Hillseum, maar dat viel tegen. Wel veel geleerd over Edith Stein en Simone Weil, over wie ik zelf niets wist.
