Event description
Best-selling author Heather Morris introduces the sequel to The Tattooist of Auschwitz, Cilka's Journey.

About this Event

Cilka’s Journey centres on Cilka Klein, the teenage girl who saved The Tattooist of Auschwitz, Lale Sokolov’s life. Sokolov told Heather that Cilka was ‘the bravest person’ he ever met. ‘Not the bravest girl,’ he insisted, ‘the bravest person.’

Cilka’s journey is heart-breaking, but also a story of incredible courage, passion and the triumph of human spirit. Cilka daily confronted death and faced terror. Incredibly, she also found love and incredibly long life.

Heather Morris met Lale Sokolov in 2003, a meeting that changed both their lives. As their friendship grew, he entrusted her with the task of telling the world the innermost details of his life during the Holocaust. Cilka's story was discovered through his story.

Books will be available for purchase and signing.
