Summary
This novel is based on the true story of concentration survivors, Lale Sokolov and Gita Furman. Lale became the camp tattooist numbering inmates when they arrived at Auschwitz-Birkenau. Gita had a relatively safe job working as a secretary at the administrative building. Lale was able to secure sausages, chocolate, and medicine by smuggling out jewels and money confiscated from camp prisoners by the SS. Gita and Lale were separated at the end of the war but eventually find each other and marry.
Critique
A powerful, gut-wrenching tale.
