Remember the story of the man in Florida whose story Oprah Winfrey once dubbed the “greatest love story” she had ever heard?
The man, Herman Rosenblat, has acknowledged his Holocaust love story is fake.
Their love story inspired a book deal, an upcoming movie, and stories and a children’s book, “Angel Girl,” was also based on their love story. They even appeared on “The Oprah Winfrey Show”.
“Why did I do that and write the story with the girl and the apple, because I wanted to bring happiness to people, to remind them not to hate, but to love and tolerate all people. I brought good feelings to a lot of people, and I brought hope to many. My motivation was to make good in this world,” he said in the statement.
“In my dreams, Roma will always throw me an apple, but I now know it is only a dream.”
Yes, Herman Rosenblat was in a Nazi concentration camp during World War II .
The movie version of the Rosenblats’ story remains in the works.
