The Tattooist of Auschwitz

41a4Rp6L2RL._SY346_A great way to spend a rainy Sunday was reading The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris. While, as mentioned in my last post, I wasn’t looking to add any more WWII books to my collection, I grabbed it anyway when I saw it on the “express” shelf at the library. And, am I glad I did. It is the story of Lale, who is sent to Auschwitz and, because he speaks multiple languages, rises to the top of the prisoner ranks, where he is able to do good for his fellow prisoners and falls in love. Yes, it’s depressing and sad, and yet, hopeful and uplifting as well. And, as it was based on a true story, it was even more compelling. I would add this to my TBR list if I were you.
