Meaningful People

Feb 12, 2022

Lily Ebert spent Yom Kippur 1944 in Auschwitz and made herself a promise.

“If I ever came out of that place, I was determined to do something that would change everything. I had to make sure that nothing like this could ever happen again to anybody. So I promised myself I would tell the world what had happened. Not just to me, but to all the people who could not tell their stories.”

She has kept her promise not just by telling her remarkable story in “Lily’s Promise: How I Survived Auschwitz and Found the Strength to Live,” but also through years of Holocaust education work. Thanks to her great-grandson, Dov Forman, that work has gained a huge new social media audience during the pandemic. The pair have 1.7 million TikTok followers, and their social media presence is huge.
