Both of these young Dutch women were profoundly affected by the Nazi occupation.  Etty (short for Esther) died in Auschwitz in November, 1943, but not before writing and working for peace, from deep within; Corrie and her family hid Jews in their home until they were “found out” and imprisoned.  Corrie lived many years, and continued to work for peace among all people.
