"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 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 --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Heather Morris should be complimented on her professionalism in crafting a moving and accurate record of the evil atrocities committed by the Nazi's.
My problem is that I'm not convinced with the veracity of some of content; I have read quite extensively on the subject of the Holocaust and several books by survivors of the concentration camps and this one just does not ring true in some crucial aspects. The daily life as lived by Lale in Auchwittz demonstrates an unbelievable amount of laxity on the part of the SS and guards - he's able to ramble around chatting to other prisoners and even people from outside the camp (the building workers), can smuggle and trade food and jewelry with ridiculous ease and fooled the SS interrogators into releasing him from their infamous torture suite. Lale's ease of final escape from the camp is hardly credible - he strolls off, and encounters the advancing Russian army and fools them also. The survival rate for any of his "circle" of acquaintances is remarkable. I won't go on.
In the epilogue, the author reveals that Lale related his story to her in order that he not be considered to have been a collaborator........my fear would be that his being a collaborator would explain a lot.
Quite how they survived is incredible: wit, luck and fate played a part but it is a beautiful story simply and beautifully written that tears and tugs at your heart. There's nothing more to say other than that. A book that stays with you long after the final words have been read.
The strength of human spirit is amazing - the story was brought to life so well I could barely put the book down! I found myself unable to put the book down because I couldn't leave the characters....
