Description

For readers of Schindler's List, The Man Who Broke into Auschwitz and The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas comes a heart-breaking story of the very best of humanity in the very worst of circumstances.

I tattooed a number on her arm. She tattooed her name on my heart.

In 1942, Lale Sokolov arrived in Auschwitz-Birkenau. He was given the job of tattooing the prisoners marked for survival - scratching numbers into his fellow victims' arms in indelible ink to create what would become one of the most potent symbols of the Holocaust.

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

So begins one of the most life-affirming, courageous, unforgettable and human stories of the Holocaust: the love story of the tattooist of Auschwitz.

    I read the book in one day and have since re-read it again, such a powerful and emotional book, amazing the strength and courage that Lale had, when reading it I found it very emotional, I would get angry, cry happy when they were finally free, I felt every emotion just as they had. Must read for everyone, such a powerful story that needs to be shared so that nothing like this ever happens again

    For the life of me I cannot find the words to describe how I feel right now. My eyes were already open to the Holocaust and the events surrounding it all, but this story has completely captured me. Absolutely incredible, mind boggling, emotional, heart wrenching and tragic story. This will stay with me forever.

    My ancestors were Jewish and sent to those camps, so reading this was an emotional ride, this book is heart rendering in many ways, the hope that Lale had and gave to so many is just breathtaking and to survive what he went through is unimaginable! I couldn’t put the book down, read within 2 nights through tears of anguish and joy!! 5* read!!!!
  • Incredibly badly written

    The central character seems like an incredible person although some of the experiences seem hard to believe. However the appalling writing means the story is flat, characters undeveloped, and the horror of the situation is reduced to minor acknowledgements. Lale is an ignorant caricature, but we don’t find out a single thing about Gita’s personality - she’s literally just a name. The dialogue is very ‘he said, she said’, and there is no prose at all. I actually can’t believe how a book written so badly gets published, despite the strength of the story - which as it’s based on a true account, the writer didn’t even develop herself
  • Amazing

    Haven’t read a book in ages, and this was a great one to start me off. Reminds us why we shouldn’t fight and love that it is true even though I wouldn’t wish this life on anyone. Thank you for getting it down on paper.
  • Great read

    What a great book, heart wrenching & awful but good at the same time, captures how survival is instilled in us!
  • The most harrowing love story

    I couldn’t put this down, read in a day, cried, laughed, felt horrified and lastly felt peace. The author captures personality and history in the same breath. You feel as though your there, living it with them.
