  • The Tattooist of Auschwitz

    Heather Morris

    Product Code: BRYKH
    This powerful book tells the heartbreaking love story between Lale Sokolov, the tattooist of Auschwitz, and the woman he tattooed, Gita. Readers of Schindler's List and The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas will love this extraordinary story full of love, loyalty and friendship.

    In 1942, Lale arrived in Auschwitz-Birkenau and was given the job of tattooing the prisoners. Little did he know that scratching numbers into his fellow victims' arms would become one of the most potent symbols of the Holocaust.

    Waiting in line to be tattooed was a terrified young girl named Gita. And for Lale - a dandy, jack-the-lad, bit of a chancer - it was love at first sight. He was determined to not only survive himself, but to ensure Gita did too.
