Holocaust survivor explains the heartbreaking reason she won't remover her Auschwitz tattoo
A 98-year-old Holocaust survivor has explained why she will never have the tattoo she received at Auschwitz removed.
Today marks Holocaust Memorial Day and Good Morning Britain invited Auschwitz survivor Lily Ebert and her great grandson Dov Forman on the programme to discuss it.
During the discussion, GMB host Kate Garraway asked Ebert: "Have you ever thought of getting it [the tattoo] removed or do you keep it as a reminder?"
Ebert said she keeps it because “the world should know how deep humans can go”.

Ebert said: “No, I have never thought about it to remove. I want to show the world because … to see something or to hear about it, it makes a big difference. And the world should know how deep humans can go.
