In 2007,Dina and Joe set out on an uplifting journey of hope and discovery. She was a Holocaust survivor and he was a gifted singer/songwriter whose mission in life was to write songs about people he met in his travels through central New York State. Dina was born in Poland and lost her parents and 5 siblings in the Holocaust. She spent three years in the Auschwitz concentration camp and still wonders why she survived while millions died. She came to Elmira NY with her husband and young daughter in 1951. Her daughter asked about the blue tattoo on her arm. Dina explained in terms a 5-year-old could accept, protecting her innocence. Joe was so moved by her story that he wrote the song "Blue Tattoo." He has performed it internationally. The film "Blue Tattoo" is the story behind the song, and a remarkable partnership between two people from different backgrounds hoping to heal the world.
