Northern Viewpoint Book Club - January: "The Tattooist of Auschwitz"

$10

with Christa Galipeau, MSAD#1 Adult & Community Education

Calendar Jan 6, 2022 at 6 pm

The incredible story of the Auschwitz-Birkenau tattooist and the woman he loved.Lale Sokolov is well-dressed, a charmer, a ladies’ man. He is also a Jew. On the first transport from Slovakia to Auschwitz in 1942, Lale immediately stands out to his fellow prisoners. In the camp, he is looked up to, looked out for, and put to work in the privileged position of Tätowierer– the tattooist – to mark his fellow prisoners, forever. One of them is a young woman, Gita, who steals his heart at first glance.His life given new purpose, Lale does his best through the struggle and suffering to use his position for good.This story, full of beauty and hope, is based on years of interviews author Heather Morris conducted with real-life Holocaust survivor and Auschwitz- Birkenau tattooist Ludwig (Lale) Sokolov. It is heart-wrenching, illuminating, and unforgettable.
