Heather Morris has announced that she’ll be writing a sequel to her bestselling novel, The Tattooist of Auschwitz — delighting her fans and prompting more concerns from the Auschwitz Memorial.
The memorial’s research center previously criticized her first novel for what it called “numerous errors and information inconsistent with the facts, as well as exaggerations, misinterpretations and understatements.”
Morris disputed this characterization and appears to be undaunted; the tentative cover for her next novel, Cilka’s Journey, says it is “based on a true love story,” according to the Guardian.
The Auschwitz Memorial strongly disagrees, describing the title character as "one of the most questionable parts" of Tattooist.
Head to the Guardian to learn more about its specific criticisms of Cilka's Journey, set for release in October.
