The Tattooist of Auschwitz
3 journalers for this copy...
Received from one of the members of our monthly Book Club, however she did not wish this back and it had been around all of us in the Book club who had not already read it!
This is a well known story now and has also been made into a film and tv docudrama but reading the story is a lot more powerful than watching it was for me. There is also a lot of additional material included at the end of this book about the people involved and their lives after the war. Very much worth reading.

Although I have newly registered this I actually read it in March!
It was fascinating and well written, sad and true with such sincerity running through it that it shone. This deserves to be out in the world but as all I knew had read this, it was just a case of where. So, I turned to Bookcrossing wishlists and found a reader immediately.
This would also make a film themed release possible for this book.

This is an amazing (true) story of Lale from Slovakia during his incarceration at Auschwitz Birkenau during the last three years of the war. It was while tattooing numbers on arms that he "met" Gita and fell in love...... separated when she was taken on a death march just before Russian liberation. But Lale found his way back to Slovakia and, amazingly, found Gita! Heartbreakingly amazing story and worth reading.

I am the happy winner of the latest Global Sweeps and received this book by mail today. Thank you, Andrea99!
As it happens, I have already read this once as a Finnish-translation e-book and like it a lot. However, just a quick look at the end of the book tells me that not everything was included in the e-text, so I am planning to reread it and now in the language it was written.

Such a touching story of sad and cruel happenings! There is also hope and romance in it, and they - perhaps - make it a bit less rough reading than some other concentration camp books.
