In 2018, one of the most popular and well-reviewed books to hit the publishing world was “The Tattooist of Auschwitz”. For debut author (who now lives in Australia) Heather Morris, this was an unexpected and overwhelming surprise as Lale’s story was originally a screen play that Heather reshaped into a novel. In 2003, Heather was introduced to an elderly gentleman who she heard ‘might just have a story worth telling’. The day she met Lale Sokolov changed both their lives. Their friendship grew and Lale embarked on a journey of self-scrutiny, entrusting the innermost details of his life during the Holocaust to her.
Her new novel, “Cilka’s Journey”, begins when the war is over and the camp is liberated. Freedom, however, is not granted to Cilka: She is charged as a collaborator for sleeping with the enemy and sent to a Siberian prison camp. But did she really have a choice? And where do the lines of morality lie for Cilka, who was send to Auschwitz when she was still a child?
