Why I Selected The Tattooist of Auschwitz

Just when I thought I needed a break from World War II books, this novel came along. Numerous people have told me I have to read this book and it has thousands of positive reviews on Amazon and Goodreads.
What is the Tattooist of Auschwitz About?
The author based The Tattooist of Auschwitz upon interviews with Holocaust survivor Ludwig (Lale) Sokolov. The Nazis forced him to tattoo the identification numbers onto the arms of those imprisoned at the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp. Yet, it’s also a love story.
The New Zealand native and Australian resident, Morris met up with Sokolov with the intention of writing a screenplay about him, which she did, before adapting it into a novel.
The Tattooist of Auschwitz Movie and Sequel
The book will be adapted into a miniseries but it’s unclear whether we will have access to it in the states.
A sequel entitled Cilka’s Journey is scheduled to be released this fall.
