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 extremely best of mankind in the extremely worst of circumstances.I tattooed a number on her arm.
She tattooed her name on my heart.In 1942, Lale Sokolov got here in Auschwitz-Birkenau
. He was given the task of tattooing the prisoners marked for survival-scratching numbers into his fellow victims'arms in indelible ink to develop exactly what would turn into one of the most powerful signs of the Holocaust. Waiting in line to be tattooed, horrified and shaking, was a young
lady. For Lale-a dandy, a jack-the-lad, a little bit of a chancer-it was love at first sight. And he was figured out not only to survive himself, but to guarantee this lady, Gita, did, too.So begins one of the most life-affirming, bold, extraordinary and human stories of the Holocaust: the romance of the tattooist of Auschwitz. -----' Extraordinary- moving, confronting and uplifting ...
