Book Club: "The Tattooist of Auschwitz"
Join our Hatley Branch staff and others who like to chat about the good and bad of books, including Morris's moving novel for our July gathering!
In April 1942, Lale Sokolov, a Slovakian Jew, is forcibly transported to the concentration camps at Auschwitz-Birkenau. He is put to work as a Tätowierer (the German word for tattooist), tasked with permanently marking his fellow prisoners. One day in July 1942, Lale, prisoner 32407, comforts a trembling young woman waiting in line to have the number 34902 tattooed onto her arm. Her name is Gita, and in that first encounter, Lale vows to somehow survive the camp and marry her.
Depending on the weather and what's safest, we might meet inside, outside or virtually. Give the Hatley Branch a call for information on how to participate. New people are always welcome!
