Based on a true story, The Tattooist of Auschwitz is about two Slovakian Jews who survived Auschwitz and eventually made their home in Australia. In that terrible place, Lale Sokolov was given the job of tattooing the prisoners marked for survival - and he used the tiny freedom of movement that this position awarded him to help keep others alive. His story - and the story of the woman he loved - will make you weep, but you will also find it uplifting. It shows the very best of humanity in the very worst of circumstances. Heart-wrenching and illuminating, this is a book you will not soon forget.

Lale Sokolov is well-dressed, a charmer, a ladies’ man. He is also a Jew. On the first transport from Slovakia to Auschwitz in 1942, Lale immediately stands out to his fellow prisoners. In the camp, he is looked up to, looked out for, and put to work in the privileged position of tätowierer – the tattooist – to mark his fellow prisoners, forever. One of them is a young woman, Gita, who steals his heart at first glance.

His life given new purpose, Lale does his best through the struggle and suffering to use his position for good.
