As far as Holocaust memoirs go, Anka Voticky’s is unlike anything you’ll ever read, er, tweet.
The 97-year-old, who originally wrote a narrative memoir for her family’s records a few years ago, is sharing her story on the social media platform Twitter, posting snippets two or three times every day. The Azrieli Foundation, a Canadian non-profit, does the actual tweeting, disseminating Anka’s Story to over 300 followers to date.
