Book Launch: “The Ghost Tattoo”


Book Launch: “The Ghost Tattoo”


Book Launch: “The Ghost Tattoo”

Thursday 5 May


A book launch for Tony Bernard’s The Ghost Tattoo.

To the outside world, Henry Bernard was a wonderful family doctor. He was also a Holocaust survivor whose life was profoundly affected by his past.

Among other obsessions, he kept his striped Auschwitz uniform with a picture of his mother in his wardrobe. These obsessions restricted any hope he had of conventional happiness.

Finally, Henry revealed his hidden truth: his father had been a member of the Jewish Council in Tomaszow and had recruited Henry into the Jewish Order Service, which would become known as the “ghetto police”.

The Ghost Tattoo is the story of how Tony went on a 48-year journey with his father to solve the mystery of why Henry was the way he was. He finally came to understand the desperate choices Henry had made in the ghetto, to keep himself and his family alive.

Michael Visontay will be in discussion with Tony Bernard to officially launch the book. Michael has worked for over 30 years as a journalist, author, lecturer and sports commentator.
