Beach Reads: The Tattooist of Auschwitz


This beautiful, illuminating tale of hope and courage is based on interviews that were conducted with Holocaust survivor and Auschwitz-Birkenau tattooist Ludwig (Lale) Sokolov.  A vivid, harrowing, and ultimately hopeful re-creation of Sokolov’s experiences as the man who tattooed the arms of thousands of prisoners with what would become one of the most potent symbols of the Holocaust, this tale is also a testament to the endurance of love and humanity under the darkest possible conditions.
