    • Being a mom, I don't get to read often. I have been using Amazon to buy books for my kids for years. So, when I read the reviews for this book, I figured that it would be a good companion book to the Diary of Anne Frank, when they read that. Once it got here I read the jacket and was intrigued. I started to read it and I completed it in less than 24 hours. Lale's story of love, and hardship, and death, and life, and chocolate, was spellbinding. I couldn't put it down. I cried at the end and I found the Afterwords and the Author's notes to be a wonderful closing to this harrowing adventure. There were parts that hurt my heart and made my stomach ache for all of those innocent souls. I don't think he was a collaborator, he did whatever he needed to to stay alive in a brutal environment. May he and Gita R.I.P. together.
    • I had to order ‘The Tattooist of Auschwitz’ from a bookseller in the UK, as it will not be released in the US until September. It finally arrived to my home in Washington state a few days ago. After reading such incredible reviews, I couldn’t wait to be lost in its pages, so added it to my suitcase as I packed for work (I am a flight attendant). I didn’t have a chance to read it during my layover, but started it late last night on my redeye flight across the Pacific. I read it cover to cover in the five hours it took to fly from Maui to home, only pausing to wipe my tears on my apron and to pour sodas for the few people who weren’t sleeping in their seats.I have read so many stories of this time, some good and some not so, some acclaimed and some relatively unknown. The Tattooist of Aushwitz is by far the best. Heather’s ability to make written words come to life is a true gift. This is one of those books that I will carry in my soul forever.
    • felt like I was there with him , very emotional. want to buy as a gift for my brother and share of some our heritage with him.
    • A full 5 stars for this flowing factual literary work which “brings” Lale and Gita’s heart rendering love story into a pragmatic realistic accountable unputdownable read.The abhorrent disgrace and disgust of the holocaust cries out “lest we never forget”, which our retribution portrays in these stories being retold and remembered from generation to generation. The Jews will proudly survive and our voices will be heard in unity.My husband and I have walked through Auschwitz and Birkenau - a chilling icy tour of a deathly historical event in history which is incomprehensible albeit remembered.
    • Can there be a beautiful love story, a story of heart and soul in the midst of concentration camps and the horrors they evoke? Yes! This story based on the memory of a survivor is all that. Beautifully written with great depth. A wondrous story of survival and life!
