"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)

Wow! I had put off reading this one because I thought it was going to be depressing and hard to read. While it was at times depressing, overall it was a fascinating read. A quick read - I read it in one day.

This is a love story that starts in Auschwitz. It tells the true story of Lale and Gita. Lale is the tattooist because he can speak several languages. While performing his job one day, he falls in love with Gita. He vows to her that they will get out of the camp alive. He is very enterprising and finds ways to ensure that they both (and some of her friends) stay alive.

This is a beautifully written love story during the horrors of Auschwitz. ( )

Great Historical Fiction based on accounts of a survivor of the Auschwitz Death Camp. A beautiful story, well written of the life of Lale Eisenberg (Sokolov) and his eventual wife, Gita. I read it with my 13 year old daughter and we both loved the book which was hard to put down. ( )

In 1942 Lale was transported to Auschwitz, the very name sending a shiver to all who know of it. He manages to gain the job of the tattooist to new arrivals which gives him a relatively better situation.

He comes across a female prisoner and is immediately taken by her.

There follows the most unlikely love story. We go through all the terrible situations with him. Violence, starvation and illnesses are never far away.

To me the simplicity of the language used is one of the strengths of this book. In many ways every day is much the same as the one before and along with the prisoners we sense the tedium. Friendships blossom but then end abruptly when someone disappears and sadly we are well aware what that means

Of course the true strength of the story is knowing that it's based on truth and these people did live.

I definitely recommend it ( )

Excellent Audible book read by Richard Armitage. It is based on the true story of Lale Sokolov and his wife?s over 3-yr confinement. Kirkus: An unlikely love story set amid the horrors of a Nazi death camp.Based on real people and events, this debut novel follows Lale Sokolov, a young Slovakian Jew sent to Auschwitz in 1942. There, he assumes the heinous task of tattooing incoming Jewish prisoners with the dehumanizing numbers their SS captors use to identify them. When the T?towierer, as he is called, meets fellow prisoner Gita Furman, 17, he is immediately smitten. Eventually, the attraction becomes mutual. Lale proves himself an operator, at once cagey and courageous: As the T?towierer, he is granted special privileges and manages to smuggle food to starving prisoners. Through female prisoners who catalog the belongings confiscated from fellow inmates, Lale gains access to jewels, which he trades to a pair of local villagers for chocolate, medicine, and other items. Meanwhile, despite overwhelming odds, Lale and Gita are able to meet privately from time to time and become lovers. In 1944, just ahead of the arrival of Russian troops, Lale and Gita separately leave the concentration camp and experience harrowingly close calls. Suffice it to say they both survive. To her credit, the author doesn?t flinch from describing the depravity of the SS in Auschwitz and the unimaginable suffering of their victimsno gauzy evasions here, as in Boy in the Striped Pajamas. She also manages to raise, if not really explore, some trickier issues¥the guilt of those Jews, like the tattooist, who survived by doing the Nazis? bidding, in a sense betraying their fellow Jews; and the complicity of those non-Jews, like the Slovaks in Lale?s hometown, who failed to come to the aid of their beleaguered countrymen.The writing is merely serviceable, and one can?t help but wish the author had found a way to present her material as nonfiction. Still, this is a powerful, gut-wrenching tale that is hard to shake off.
