Perhaps because I lost 25 members of my family in the Holocaust, or maybe because I was one of Europe’s “hidden children” during World War II, I am obsessed with the Holocaust. From the time I first began doing research for my first memoir, PRAGUE: MY LONG JOURNEY HOME, I’ve read nearly a hundred books–mostly nonfiction, but also some fiction–about that horrific piece of history. Thus, when I discovered Heather Morris’ THE TATTOOIST OF AUSCHWITZ, I had to read it. Although the book is based on a true story, it is important to remember that its cover marks it clearly as “a novel.”
“Heller, will discuss his memoir, Prague: My Long Journey Home, a true, riveting adventure and moving recollection of a loving family nearly destroyed by the Nazis. It is an inspirational story of a different kind of Holocaust survivor.
