The Tattooist of Auschwitz tells the story of a Slovakian Jew who is forcibly taken from his home and put into the concentration camp at Auschwitz. Once in custody, his captors soon find that he speaks several languages and decide to put him to work as a tattooist, in charge of marking his fellow prisoners with permanent tattoos. He witnessed many awful things during this awful time in history, but he was able to take his position of privilege within the concentration camp to benefit others. He would take jewels and money from murdered Jews and exchange it for food to keep his fellow prisoners alive. One day, that Tattooist meets prisoner 32407, a woman named Lale and he suddenly has something to live for: to survive the Holocaust and marry this woman. Based on real life interviews with an Auschwitz survivor, this book is an illuminating tale of hope and courage in an awful time with an amazing love story to boot.
