The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris

Publication Date: January 11th 2018
Genre: Historical Fiction
My Goodreads Rating: 5/5
Source: Own Copy

This novel is based on the true story of two Slovakian Jews who survived the horror of the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp. Lale Sokolov was made the tattooist at Auschwitz and had to scratch numbers into his fellow inmates' arms every day. He was forced to carve what eventually became a prominent symbol of this terrible time.

Lale used this position of relative superiority to create a small business of trade. His survival and that of those around him, depended on it. His post allowed him a certain degree of movement, which he used to exchange money and jewels taken from his murdered comrades for food and essential supplies. "Many owed him their survival"
