#1 New York Times bestseller, The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris is the story of an enduring love that blossomed in history’s darkest time and place.
In 1942, Lale Sokolov was transported Auschwitz-Birkenau, where he was given the job of Tätowierer, the inmate responsible for tattooing arms of new arrivals. While on duty, he calms a petrified young woman– and begins to fall in love with Gita, prisoner 34902. “I tattooed her number on her left hand,” Lale recalled, “and she tattooed her number in my heart.”
