1785763644
The tattooist of Auschwitz, based on the heart-breaking true story of love and survival, Heather Morris
Cover
Author: Morris, Heather
Publication year: 2018
Language: English
Category: Fiction
ISBN: 9781785763649
Notes:
This novel is based on the true story of Lale and Gita Sokolov, two Slovakian Jews, who survived Auschwitz and eventually made their home in Australia. In that terrible place, Lale was given the job of tattooing the prisoners marked for survival - literally scratching numbers into his fellow victims' arms in indelible ink to create what would become one of the most potent symbols of the Holocaust. Lale used the infinitesimal freedom of movement that this position awarded him to exchange jewels and money taken from murdered Jews for food to keep others alive. If he had been caught he would have been killed; many owed him their survival.
