Apex Blog: Tattoos, Memory, and the Holocaust

In the year 2000, I wrote a scene for the story "Kaddish for the Last Survivor," in which the granddaughter of a Holocaust survivor gets a tattoo on her arm to honor her grandfather. The story, which appeared in the November 2000 Analog, was nominated for the Hugo and the Nebula and is probably my best-known story.

Just last week, the New York Times ran an article about people doing this for real.

I've posted my thoughts on this at the Apex blog today.
