David Van Turnhout is Ide Leib Kartuz ’s grandson, the main character in this book. When he met Dirk Verhofstadt, Dirk persuaded him to write about his grandfather who was a survivor of the Auschwitz concentration camp. The two gentlemen decided to write the book together and travelled around the world to find out more about Ide Leib Kartuz’ story. Their work resulted in this book, that came out in Belgium in 2019. Today David is still writing political opinions and works as a freelance communication specialist.
