The tattooist of auschwitz is an extraordinary document, a story about the extremes of human behavior existing side by side: calculated brutality alongside impulsive and selfless acts of love.

. I find it hard to imagine anyone who would not be drawn in, confronted and moved. Risking his own life, he uses his privileged position to exchange jewels and money from murdered Jews for food to keep his fellow prisoners alive. 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.

A vivid, harrowing, and ultimately hopeful re-creation of lale sokolov's experiences as the man who tattooed the arms of thousands of prisoners with what would become one of the most potent symbols of the Holocaust, The Tattooist of Auschwitz is also a testament to the endurance of love and humanity under the darkest possible conditions.

When his captors discover that he speaks several languages, he is put to work as a Tätowierer the German word for tattooist, tasked with permanently marking his fellow prisoners. Imprisoned for over two and a half years, Lale witnesses horrific atrocities and barbarism—but also incredible acts of bravery and compassion.

I would recommend it unreservedly to anyone, whether they’d read a hundred Holocaust stories or none.
