How many books about WWII have to be written before someone says "that's enough"? I say keep writing those stories so we never forget what happened in that war. I'm reading this book and I couldn't put it down.
It is based on a true story about a Jewish man who was picked to work as a tattooist at Auschwitz, a German concentration camp. This allows him some level of protection. While there he meets Gita, a woman waiting to be marked with her identifying serial number, and they fall in love.
This whole story is about love, luck, survival and finding hope in the most impossible places. "It is a plot driven story that's written in a straightforward and simple manner". The writing is vivid and clear. I felt somewhat sick at the descriptive words that explained what living in the WWII years was like for those tattooed and their feelings during this period of time.
We also need to keep reading about WWII and hope that a similar situation never occurs again. Everyone should read this well-written story.
