The Tattooist of Auschwitz – Heather Morris
THE INCREDIBLE STORY OF THE AUSCHWITZ-BIRKENAU TATTOOIST AND THE WOMAN HE LOVED
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.
This story is based on the true story of Ludwig (Lale) Sokolov, the Tatowierer of Auschwitz-Birkenau.
