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.

    Humbling story, and respectfully written. I wanted to know more about what had happened to their families.

    These experiences and this beautiful story had me gripped, and within the span of a day I had finished devouring Lale and Gita’s amazing tale of survival, love and unbelievable trauma. That we were ever capable of treating other human beings like this is unfathomable, and that these wonderful people survived and found each other again makes my heart swell. I have cried with Lale, felt his dread and horror, prayed for him to find Gita, and laughed with glee at their ending. I cannot thank him enough for reliving those awful experiences so that I could read them, and learn from them. I will think of this book for a very long time.
  • Best Book I’ve ever read

    It was so gripping and I just wanted to know what was going to happen to Lale and Gita! I couldn’t put the book down! It really brought how awful auschwitz was to reality and was full of emotion. I’m even going to Poland after reading this book to see auschwitz. Would highly recommend reading!!

    Words can't really describe what a powerful, heart warming, humbling story of survival this book tells... A story that everyone should know, a story that delicately and sensitively outlines the horrors and the loss that prisoners of war endured.
  • Never lose hope.
