Book Review: The Tattooist of Auschwitz

he Story of Lale Sokolov is sadly not based on fiction, so I cannot in any capacity critique the story, only the storytelling.

However, I didn't find myself emotionally affected until the authors note where we learn what happened to Lale and Gita after the war.
