The Tattooist of Auschwitz

the heart-breaking and unforgettable international bestseller

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. Chosen for the Richard and Judy Bookclub.

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.

Buchhändler-Empfehlungen

One of the most powerful books I've ever read!

Lea Oels, Thalia-Buchhandlung Baunatal

When Lale sees Gita for the first time, it's love at first sight. He longs to get to know this girl he knows nothing about. When they finally get the chance to meet, they decide they'll do every possible thing they need to do to survive the hell they're stuck in. A powerful story about compassion, cohesion and how love saves the lives of more than two prisoners of the concentration camp in Auschwitz.

A love story in a terrible setting
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden am 27.03.2020

The book is a nice reading, even though the setting is disturbing. I kind of expected more of a historical account to the biography; it turns out it is mainly a romance story wrapped in historical context. Nevertheless, Lale's and Gita's fate is intriguing. I would have wished for a somewhat more sophisticated way of expression ... The book is a nice reading, even though the setting is disturbing. I kind of expected more of a historical account to the biography; it turns out it is mainly a romance story wrapped in historical context. Nevertheless, Lale's and Gita's fate is intriguing. I would have wished for a somewhat more sophisticated way of expression sometimes, but that's a question of taste I guess. Overall it is an easy read if you are not too sensitive regarding the setting. I ordered the sequel Cilka's Journey right away.
