The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris


In searing detail, Heather Morris retells the true story of Lale Sokolov who, not long after he arrived in Auschwitz, was given the job of tattooing numbers on the arms of incoming prisoners. Lale is canny and determined to survive the horrors he has become an intricate part of. One day he is instructed to redo some numbers which have faded and, as he takes the arm of a beautiful young girl from Czechoslovakia, he falls hopelessly in love. From that moment on his only desire is to protect Gita, see as much of her in impossible circumstances, and ensure their survival so that they can spend the rest of their lives together. This is a truly great love story which will give you goosebumps.
