Despite the many upsides of age, a long life means that we have witnessed a number of horrendous events. One of the most horrendous events ever, however, was experienced by our parents’ generation. And that, of course was the holocaust and the tragic events of World War II.
Our guest on Feisty Side of Fifty Radio, Heather Morris, has written a riveting, real life account of one of the surviving prisoners of Auschwitz. But this man wasn’t just any prisoner. Lale Sokolov was forced to become the designated tattooist who had to forever mark the arms of his fellow prisoners.
But this is also a love story. In spite of all of the horror he witnesses, Lale falls in love and his love for Gita inspires some of his greatest actions.
Heather’s book, The Tattooist of Auschwitz is an important work with an incredibly important message. I am both honored and thrilled to have her join us to share more about her work. Please plan to tune in for this incredibly moving conversation.
