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.

Reviews

  • Really bad writing

    I can only assume the 5 star reviews are fake because this was a really badly written book. Based on a true story, but unfortunately the story telling was poor. Character building was poor. There’s a love story which is quite important but it was really hard to believe in it - the female love interest had little character building so I didn’t feel emotional about her or their situation. Given the topic, I was expecting to ‘feel’ a great deal! Toward the end of the story it felt as though the author just wanted to finish the book - it may as well have been a list of what happened next in bullet points. A great story ruined by bad writing perhaps. But at least the story is out there.

    An astonishing piece of work. I began it, thinking it was a novel. Finishing it to find that it was a true story shook me.

    I read the book in one day and have since re-read it again, such a powerful and emotional book, amazing the strength and courage that Lale had, when reading it I found it very emotional, I would get angry, cry happy when they were finally free, I felt every emotion just as they had. Must read for everyone, such a powerful story that needs to be shared so that nothing like this ever happens again

    For the life of me I cannot find the words to describe how I feel right now. My eyes were already open to the Holocaust and the events surrounding it all, but this story has completely captured me. Absolutely incredible, mind boggling, emotional, heart wrenching and tragic story. This will stay with me forever.
