Staff Review: "The Tattooist of Auschwitz" by Heather Morris


Do you like based on true story fiction? Do you like World War II  books? Then this is a perfect combination for you! 

Follow the story of Lale Sokolov, a Slovakian Jew, as he survives his time in Auschwitz. We learn of what he went through on his way to the concentration camp, his time there and what his life was like afterwards. Throughout the story you will read about his encounters with guards, other prisoners, and his encounter with Gita, the love of his life. 

This story is a story of survival, love and what it means to be brave and compassionate. 

Audience: adults | Genre: fiction
