Zdenka Fantlova is one of the few living eye-witnesses to the horror of the Holocaust. She survived six concentration camps, lost her entire family and endured unimaginable horrors.
Today at the age of 92 she is touring theatres and festivals to tell the extraordinary story of how when she was just 17-years-old a simple tin ring made for her by her boyfriend became central to her will to live.
Though her boyfriend died, Zdenka clung to the simple tin ring as a symbol of hope. Her story remains a unique account of human endurance and will power. The Tin Ring is her book dedicated to the unknown British soldier who saved her at the end of the war when, skin and bone and crippled by typhoid, she crawled to a Red Cross post set up by liberating forces at the Belsen death camp.
In addition to her theatre tour Zdenka is also available to appear at corporate events.
