The Tattooist of Auschwitz, Heather Morris
The one good thing about reading a lot of WWII historical fiction is I’m always prepared for an emotional and tragic journey. Because Lale and Gita are real people who lived to tell their story, I was able to read The Tattooist Of Auschwitz knowing that there would be at least one small happy ending.
That said, this book was emotionally challenging. The personal view of life in a concentration camp puts you right in the middle of the horrors and abuses. I’ll never understand the sadistic evil and pure hatred some feel towards others, but it is stories like the ones that belong to Lale and Gita that remind me that love wins.
