“The story will continue because of my grandson”, says TikTok famous Auschwitz survivor

Tova Friedman was just five when she arrived at Auschwitz – young enough to be one of the Nazi death camp’s youngest survivors. But old enough to have held onto vivid memories, including of being marched into the gas chambers, and then being inexplicably led out.

She’s shared those memories in the decades that followed – writing a book, visiting schools and now posting on TikTok, where she’s found an audience of millions.

Krishnan met her and the grandson that introduced her to the social media platform. He began by asking her, why telling her story now is so important.
