About Stories of Hope

In Stories of Hope, Heather Morris will explore the art of listening – a skill she employed when she first met Lale Sokolov, the tattooist of Auschwitz. It was her ability to listen that led Lale to entrust Heather with his story. Her novel based on his life, The Tattooist of Auschwitz, has sold nearly six million copies worldwide. Now she shares her story of how she learned to listen.

From a very young age, Heather learned that people would share their most sacred and intimate stories with her, if she stopped and listened to them. Stories of Hope will examine and explore Heather’s journey, in the form of a series of tales of the remarkable people she has met, the extraordinary stories they have shared with her, and the lessons they hold for us all.
