The Schmooze

Holocaust Survivor Tweets Her Story

“Survival in Auschwitz,” 187 pages. “Fatelessness,” 272 pages. “Anka’s Story,” 140 characters.

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.
