Find out what happened to The Tattooist of Auschwitz’s Cilka Klein from author Heather Morris as she discusses her latest novel at a London-exclusive event.
One of the key characters from The Tattooist of Auschwitz, Cilka Klein is the teenage girl who saved Tattooist Lale Sokolov’s life. Sokolov told Heather that Cilka was ‘the bravest person’ he had ever met. ‘Not the bravest girl,’ he insisted, ‘the bravest person.’
According to Morris, whenever she talks about The Tattooist, and in the thousands of letters and emails she receives from readers, ‘people want to know what happened to Cilka’.
The answer, revealed in new novel Cilka’s Journey, is heartbreaking.
