The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris Book Summary

 #1 New York Times Bestseller and #1 International Bestseller

Soon to be a Peacock Original Series

This beautiful, illuminating tale of hope and courage is based on interviews that were conducted with Holocaust survivor and Auschwitz-Birkenau tattooist Ludwig (Lale) Sokolov—an unforgettable love story in the midst of atrocity.

“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. I would recommend it unreservedly to anyone, whether they’d read a hundred Holocaust stories or none.”—Graeme Simsion, internationally-bestselling author of The Rosie Project

In April 1942, Lale Sokolov, a Slovakian Jew, is forcibly transported to the concentration camps at Auschwitz-Birkenau. 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. 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. Her name is Gita, and in that first encounter, Lale vows to somehow survive the camp and marry her.

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.

New favorite book!. This is an incredible story and beautifully written. An amazing depiction of struggle and perseverance.

Riveting. Real account of the horrors visited upon a race human beings. Also the power of willpower and love persevering. Timely in American politics of late.

Ah-MAZING!. Such a beautiful story! Just wondering why this isn’t a movie yet!? I’m so in love with each person and their part in the story.. beautifully done!

I loved it. This book touched my soul. I couldn’t put it down. I recommend it to everyone. The follow up book is just as good.

Poorly Written/Factually Flawed. I can tolerate bad writing, but minimizing the experience at Auschwitz and making it seem like it wasn’t that bad in excusable. There’s so much glossing over the actual horrors that took place there in an effort to write a Holocaust romance novel. It’s actually quite offensive.

Excellent. Absolutely amazing story. Well written, captivating from start to finish. The Afterword is the perfect follow up to this moving and hope inspiring story.

Tatoist of auschwitz. As i sit in quarantine & read Lale & Gita”s story, i have experienced sorrow, inspiration, & joy. The horror & loss of so many innocent lives during the holocaust is something the world should never forget. Thank you for telling their story- i will remember. The inspiration that they survived such horror & were able to love & build a life... may it give others who are struggling hope for tomorrow. May we each be a vessel to help those around us in need in any small or great measure we can within our ability at the moment. Lale”s heart to help others is an example to follow. Blessings to you 💓 Debra

Outstanding book. So terribly sad what happened in Auschwitz to innocent people

A must read book.. Captivating journey of two very strong people in an improbable situation but yet their love managed to carry them through. Very well written, you cant stop reading.

Underdeveloped characters and ending. I enjoyed the story and perspective of this book. However, there wasn’t a whole lot of character connection or development throughout the story. The ending was also sped up and ended too quickly.

Overly romanticized. In the beginning of the book I was intrigued but as the story went I felt as if i was reading something unfinished. Everything going in the story was down played for the sake of a love story. It just felt very unfinished and rushed towards the end to the happy endingDefinitely better holocaust books out there.

Tattooists. Great book, had my attention the entire book. I couldn’t put it down!!

AMAZING. I absolutely love this book!! It has such a story you just automatically get sucked in. I recommend this to everyone interested in the subject!

AMAZING!!!!. This book was incredible! I have been addicted to it for the past few weeks. It takes me to a completely different and horrifying world, I felt like I was in Lale’s shoes and I was really there experiencing what he did, it was scary. This book is told incredibly well and it is a book a will put on my favorites list and recommend to others. I like reading books about the holocaust, it helps me to reflect on humanity. I plan to read the authors other works very soon! If you are looking for a good book and a new favorite author look no further than here!

A love story in the darkest of times!. Such a genuine and riveting account of Holocaust survivors. I am thrilled that he was finally able to tell their story.

Powerful. This is such a wonderful read. It’s written beautifully and flows smoothly from start to finish. Highly recommend!

Great easy read. There are some sad bits to this book as with any book about the holocaust but it is a great read with many light hearted parts. I really enjoyed this novel.

Horrifying, spellbinding.. I’ve read other accounts of the concentration camps, but this was the most compelling. A love story for the ages, interwoven in a time of the worst evil mankind can inflict on other human beings.

Tried to enjoy it. Sorry, it just reads like spark notes or something. Every chance for something interesting cuts short to a sentence of “then x was happening for y days”.

The Tattooist of Auschwitz. Really? Did she even try? This was awful.

Great Read. This book revealed a lot about the holocaust that I wasn’t aware of. Lale and Gita’s story is beautiful and their journey is something special.

It gave everything. This book was absolutely everything I’ve ever wanted in a book. It was real. It was honest. It made me extremely emotional every way. I give this book as presents to other people. It’s a story that everyone should know. I only put it down because I had to go to work and sleep.

Compelling. The feelings and thoughts expressed by the character, Lale, in the face of unbelievable choices and horrendous circumstances grabbed me right at the beginning. There are many Holocaust stories and books. This one is a top of my list, must read for the realism of one person’s journey through that horror.

Riveting from page one. Loved every bit of this tragically beautiful story of strength in the face of evil

Must read. This is one of my favorite books. Amazing read!!!

A must read. An absolutely amazing story

Read it. I recently have been sucked down the rabbit hole of reading Holocaust novels and this one is definitely worth the read! If you enjoy this read I would highly recommend checking out the author Mandy Robotham.

Great. I loved the book. It was captivating. I wish the end had been drawn out a bit more, though.

Amazing book!. I love this book! I couldn’t put it down. It’s a great read!

Absolutely wonderful. Its a wonderful story that I was not able to put it down. I am happy I found it. Excellent author. ❤️

Must read. Read it through in one sitting. Fascinating and gripping

Excellent. Excellent!

Great book!!! Must read!!!. Very great book I love that you can feel the love pain and sorrow between the characters as you read I was very impressed

Great read. Incredible book and inspirational even considering unbearable circumstances.

The tattoo artist of. Well written, and lots to think about.

A beautiful reading. I could not put the book down and it had such a great ending

Must Read. I couldn’t put this book down. Highly recommend!

Grupping. Read the entire thing through one sitting. Literally could not put down!

Just Wow. Easily one of the best holocaust survival stories I think I’ve ever read finished it in 2 days I couldn’t put it down Lale and Gita’s journey of survival is just amazing bravo to the author a must read if you are looking for a holocaust story

Amazing!. I love this story so much. I listened to it on audio and the narrator did a wonderful job. The story was so wonderful. Highly recommend

Incredibly beautiful account of undying hope. Accounts of the Holocaust are always desperately difficult to read but this story shared the will to survive through a beautiful love story of two desperate survivors sharing their accounts of surviving the death camp of Auschwitz. We must never forget….

Astounding. Amazing book that places you in the middle of a forbidden relationship. heartbreaking, but an amazing, cant-put-down read.

Heartbreaking.. This book was well written, but the subject matter is hard to get through. The systematic erasing of a culture is unfathomable to me.

Poorly Written and Unfinished. The true story of this couple deserved so much more than it got with this novel. It somehow took a true story of love and survival in one of the darkest times in recent history and turned it into a teen romances novel. I was left with sadness when I finished the book, not from the book itself, but for the story that could have been told. I am truly bewildered that this has good reviews.

Nice book. Great story about the holocaust

Touching Story. We all have heard of the horrors those experienced during WW2 and the concentration camps. This tells about Lale Sokolov’s story of finding love and surviving the horrors at Auschwitz. Very good book.

A book you want to read the second time. This was such an amazing book and I quickly read through it. It’s a true one story and one about surviving the camps and what Lale did to remain alive. I would recommend this book to anybody and everybody!

Great Read. I could NOT put this book down!

Chilling. So good! I felt like I was there with Lale and Gita as they were suffering, surviving, and falling in love.

Sad, but loved it. It is a tough read in places, but hard to put down. A man taken to Aushwitz death camp schemes his way to a ‘secure’ position tattooing numbers on new arrivals. He uses his elevated position to help others around him. In the terribleness of what is happening in the camp he falls in love. Very well written.

Couldn’t put it down. Loved this book. Would recommend to anyone. It had my attention from the first chapter and I fell in love with Lale and Gita.

Disgraceful. I thought this book was beyond disrespectful to the atrocities experienced by those during the Holocaust.

Tattooist of Auschwitz. I found this book to be an average read only. Everything about the plight of prisoners in Germany’s concentration camps is horrifying. We knew that. But this writer recounts his time dispassionately. Almost clinically. It’s not that I am without sympathy. But it just wasn’t a compelling suspenseful read.

Compelling tragic and incredible. I wasn’t sure what to expect, only that everyone raves about this book. I found myself unable to put it down. From start to finish heather really captures the heart and soul of that period in history covered in so much despair and heartache.

The Tattooist of Auschwitz. A great read. A touching story which proves the desire to live and love can overcome all obstacles.

Everyone needs to read this. Amazing!!

A true love story. I could not put this book down! After three days of reading start to finish I learned that love can over come some of life’s most difficult obstacles. I also learned a little more about what life was like during that time which made me cry for the pain they suffered. But made me feel joy as well when they were happy! I highly recommend this book to anyone.
