From the Author
Heather Morris is a native of New Zealand, now resident in Australia, working in a large public hospital in Melbourne. For several years she studied and wrote screenplays, one of which was optioned by an Academy Award-winning screenwriter in the US. In 2003, Heather was introduced to an elderly gentleman who 'might just have a story worth telling'. The day she met Lale Sokolov changed both their lives, as their friendship grew and he embarked on a journey of self-scrutiny, entrusting the innermost details of his life during the Holocaust to her. Heather originally wrote Lale's story as a screenplay - which ranked high in international competitions - before reshaping it into her debut novel, The Tattooist of Auschwitz.See all Product description

This is not a downbeat tale. The strength of the human spirit shines through on every page. It was hard to put down, I had to keep reading. And in the last pages there are amazing surprises.
A wonderful book about a truly remarkable character. I cannot recommend this more highly.
The story of daily life in Auschwitz is seen at all levels. There is the brutallity of the guards tempered a little by Lale being able to get favours from his personal guard. The treatment of the girls in the camp and how they try to make things as easy as possible for themselves; the horror of not knowing what has happened to an individual who disappears.
Even after the camp is liberated Lale's struggle to survive, find Gita and recover their lives gives a picture of what it must have been like in 1945 when the war ended. Definitely a must read book for everyone.
Yes, there are many Holocaust memoires, but there can never be too many, so no one ever forgets.
I am sure there were not many happy endings in Auschwitz.
Well done Heather in capturing the truly horrific atrocities from his memory and for making a wonderful gripping real life story. A must read.
