The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris

I purchased this book from Amazon to read. All opinions are my own. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris. I am not a huge historical reader, however I do enjoy history that focuses around WWII so this one seemed a good fit. In 1942 Lale Sokolov, a Slovakian Jew, is forcibly transported to concentration camps Auschwitz-Birkenau where he is selected to be the tattooist that marks his fellow prisoners upon selection by the SS guards. While imprisoned what Lale witnesses is horrific but in July 1942 he is forced to mark a girl named Gita and falls in love from that day forward for the next 2 1/2 years all he can think of is surviving to save and protect this girl. Stealing extra rations for the weaker prisoners, smuggling gems, and clothing Lale will do whatever it takes to survive. This book is raw based on the memories and truth of a man and a woman that survived the worst kind of people.
