Description

The Tattooist of Auschwitz For readers of Schindler's List, The Man Who Broke into Auschwitz and The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas comes a heart-breaking story of the very best of humanity in the very worst of circumstances.

I tattooed a number on her arm. She tattooed her name on my heart.

In 1942, Lale Sokolov arrived in Auschwitz-Birkenau. He was given the job of tattooing the prisoners marked for survival - scratching numbers into his fellow victims' arms in indelible ink to create what would become one of the most potent symbols of the Holocaust.

Waiting in line to be tattooed, terrified and shaking, was a young girl. For Lale - a dandy, a jack-the-lad, a bit of a chancer - it was love at first sight. And he was determined not only to survive himself, but to ensure this woman, Gita, did, too.

So begins one of the most life-affirming, courageous, unforgettable and human stories of the Holocaust: the love story of the tattooist of Auschwitz.

    Such a touching, harrowing, eye opening story. I felt every emotion reading this true life story of Lale and Gita. This story reveals the horrors of World War 2 and what people went through to survive. Such a heartbreaking novel but at the same time Lales story blows your mind. Fantastic book 💕

    This is the first book like this that I have read on this subject. The author somehow envelopes you in the trauma while keeping you just far enough away to feel like a fly on the wall. I couldn’t put this down, I felt like I owed it to Lale to read, and read, and read. I hadn’t realised quite how deep it got me until I turned the page to see photos of Lale and Gita, and burst into tears. Please do read this book. For Lale and Gita.

    Absolutely fantastic book. I couldn’t put it down once I had started it and ended up reading the whole thing from start to end in one afternoon. This book can be tough to read especially knowing that the awful things are facts but I feel everyone should read it and be aware of what happened. Lest we forget

    I am Polish and I visited Auchwitz when I was 13. I still remember the silence of death flowing in the air around the camp. I recommend that book to anyone. It made me emotional, it made me cry. God bless all those whose lives were taken in Auvhwitz.
