The Tattooist of Auschwitz

The Tattooist of Auschwitz is a Melbourne novel based on the most incredible true story of Lale Sokolov, a Jewish man imprisoned at Auschwitz and forced to undertake the job of tattooing identification numbers on his fellow prisoners. While undertaking this harrowing dehumanising job at the age of 24, Lale met and fell in love with a young woman, Gita when he tattooed a number on her arm. His life given purpose again through his love for Gita, Lale does his best through the struggle and suffering to use his privileged position in the camp for the good of his fellow prisoners. This is a powerful story about survival, and about love overcoming the most unimaginable horrors.
