    The Tattooist Of Auschwitz

    by Heather Morris

    Why Our Staff Love The Tattooist of Auschwitz:

    The real-life love story of Lale Sokolov and Gita Fuhrmannova is one that defies belief. Both taken as prisoners to the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp, Lale is assigned the position of Tätowierer (tattooist) while Gita is just one prisoner out of thousands. They meet only long enough for Lale to ink the number 34902 onto Gita’s forearm, but it is enough to spark between them a fierce love that comes to thrive in the face of the utmost terror and torment.

    With a history like this to tell, The Tattooist of Auschwitz was never going to be anything but a completely harrowing read, but Australian debut novelist Heather Morris has told the story of Lale and Gita with breathtaking tenderness. It is a gripping work of historical fiction, with the reality of life in the camp rendered gravely and with just enough detail to inspire horror. In its best moments, though, The Tattooist of Auschwitz is a beautifully told story of a love that has endured the worst of humanity and I could not put it down.

    Book Description:

    The incredible story of the Auschwitz-Birkenau tattooist and the woman he loved.

    Lale Sokolov is well-dressed, a charmer, a ladies' man. He is also a Jew. On the first transport from Slovakia to Auschwitz in 1942, Lale immediately stands out to his fellow prisoners. In the camp, he is looked up to, looked out for, and put to work in the privileged position of Tetovierer ' the tattooist ' to mark his fellow prisoners, forever. One of them is a young woman, Gita, who steals his heart at first glance.

    His life given new purpose, Lale does his best through the struggle and suffering to use his position for good.

    This story, full of beauty and hope, is based on years of interviews author Heather Morris conducted with real-life Holocaust survivor and Auschwitz- Birkenau tattooist Ludwig (Lale) Sokolov. It is heart-wrenching, illuminating, and unforgettable.
