PeacockThe Simon Wiesenthal Center and Museum of Tolerance invite you to a special screening of the new series



Thursday, May 9th at 7:00pm

The Tattooist of Auschwitz, based on the best-selling novel by Heather Morris, is inspired by the real-life story of Lali and Gita Sokolov, who met while prisoners in the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp. Shortly after arrival, Lali (Jonah Hauer‑King) was made one of the tätowierer (tattooists), charged to ink identification numbers onto fellow prisoners’ arms. One day, he meets Gita (Anna Próchniak) when tattooing her prisoner number on her arm. They experience love at first sight, and so begins a courageous, unforgettable, and human story. Under constant guard from a volatile Nazi SS officer Baretzki (Jonas Nay), Lali and Gita became determined to keep each other alive. 60 years later, Lali (Harvey Keitel), recently widowed, meets novice writer Heather Morris (Melanie Lynskey) and finds the courage to tell the world his story.

A conversation follows the screening.
