The tattooist of Auschwitz
I love books, I would not be reading if I did not love it. It often sounds like a boring thing, reading. But reading is a way to transport yourself to a place you can not think of, follow a story that is not your own and most important it can make you think. The first book I that I am writing about is the tattooist of Auschwitz. The Tattooist of Auschwitz, a book that is 95% a true story and 5% fiction. It follows the story of Lale [Ludwig] 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. This book is a #1 International Bestseller & New York Times Bestseller. Described as a love story in the midst of atrocity.
