What's Hot!

The Tattooist of Auschwitz

Heather Morris

In April 1942, Lale Sokolov, a Slovakian Jew, is transported to the concentration camp at Auschwitz-Birkenau. He is put to work as a tattooist, tasked with permanently marking his fellow prisoners. One day in July, Lale comforts a trembling young woman waiting in line to be tattooed. Her name is Gita, and in that first encounter, Lale vows to somehow survive the camp and marry her. This beautiful, illuminating tale of hope and courage is based on interviews that were conducted with Holocaust survivor Sokolov. An unforgettable love story in the midst of atrocity.
