The Tattooist of Auschwitz
Description I tattooed a number on her arm. She tattooed her name on my heart.
In 1942; Lale Sokolov arrived in Auschwitz-Birkenau. He was given the job of tattooing the prisoners marked for survival - scratching numbers into his fellow victims' arms in indelible ink to create what would become one of the most potent symbols of the Holocaust.
Waiting in line to be tattooed; terrified and shaking; was a young girl. For Lale - a dandy; a jack-the-lad; a bit of a chancer - it was love at first sight. And he was determined not only to survive himself; but to ensure this woman; Gita; did; too.
So begins one of the most life-affirming; courageous; unforgettable and human stories of the Holocaust: the love story of the tattooist of Auschwitz.
