"In April 1942, Lale Sokolov, a Slovakian Jew, is forcibly transported to the concentration camps at Auschwitz-Birkenau. When his captors discover that he speaks several languages, he is put to work as a Tätowierer (the German word for tattooist), tasked with permanently marking his fellow prisoners. Imprisoned for more than two and a half years, Lale witnesses horrific atrocities and barbarism--but also incredible acts of bravery and compassion. Risking his own life, he uses his privileged position to exchange jewels and money from murdered Jews for food to keep his fellow prisoners alive. One day in July 1942, Lale, prisoner 32407, comforts a trembling young woman waiting in line to have the number 34902 tattooed onto her arm. Her name is Gita, and in that first encounter, Lale vows to somehow survive the camp and marry her"--Dust jacket f… (mer)

Truly one of the best books I've read in a while, but also one of the most heart-wrenching. Love is stronger than even the most difficult times in a person's life...and Lale and Gita were proof of that. I could not imagine falling in love while at Auschwitz, knowing that, at any moment, your one reason for living could be taken from you, or see the cruelties they endure right in front of you. But thankfully the survived, and their love was unbreakable. (On a side note, about a week or so of finishing this book, I began to watch the TV show "Hunters" on Amazon Prime Video and during their flashback to explain everything, the story was very similar to Lale and Gita's. Maybe just coincidence.)

I was very impressed with author, Heather Morris's writing style throughout the book, and also enjoyed some personal reflection from Lale and Gita's son at the end of the book. Thank you for a very well written story. ( )

Heart rendering, tear jerking brilliant read.
Made all the more hard hitting knowing it is a true story, and amongst all the hell these poor people endured love still shown through.
Even if war books are not your normal reading material I do honestly think you should give this book a read and you will not be disappointed that you took a chance on it.
Just have some tissues to hand as you will undoubtedly need them! ( )

I’ve had The Tattooist of Auschwitz on my TBR list for awhile, knowing I needed to be in the right frame of mind to read it. I finally felt like the time was right and I was right in my assumptions. This was a tough read.

I felt such a tremendous ache when I read this story. I’ve read my fair share of WWII historical fiction, but this story being rooted in truth made it all the more heartbreaking. No matter what I read and learn about WWII I will never be able to wrap my head around the absolute evil that prevailed during this time in our tainted history, especially the horrors that happened amid the barbed wire in the concentration camps. How one person can harbor so much hatred for a fellow human being is incomprehensible to me, but to then to pass that hatred onto others who blindly follow this parasite of a person makes the entire situation all the more unbelievable. What saddens me the most is the fact that these misguided feelings and sentiments still rage on in our world today. When will we as a society learn? How many more stories need to be told before we stand and do something to make sure something like this doesn’t happen again?

The fact that this is a debut novel for author Heather Morris is astounding as the narrative sounds like it’s been written by a seasoned veteran, and not someone just starting out on their literary journey! The writing is captivating in its depth, putting you in Auschwitz with Lale, Gita, and all of the other prisoners, which is made all the more terrifying when you realize this account is based on a true story. Lale and Gita existed, and had to endure the horrors they did in Auschwitz together, yet their story is also a ray of hope amid such death and depravity, proving that true love can endure even in the worst conditions humanly possible. Talk about giving hope!

As soon as I read their ending I smiled, but then had to sit the book down, and really put the whole story into perspective. Can you imagine the bond that they must’ve felt after the war ended? To endure everything they did and to make it out alive must’ve made every other fight and life event so trivial. I bet they cherished every moment they had together. I know I would have.

I was so engrossed in The Tattooist of Auschwitz that I finished it within hours of picking it up, and immediately started reading the second book, Cilka’s Journey, despite the fact that it was very, very early in the morning. I plan on reading the trilogy back to back to get the full picture from different perspectives. May we never forget what these brave individuals fought for, and may we never see these things come to pass again. Thank you Heather for telling Lale and Gita’s harrowing story. ( )
