I tattooed a number on her arm. She tattooed her name on my heart.

In 1942, Lale Sokolov arrived in Auschwitz-Birkenau. He was given the job

of tattooing the prisoners marked for survival – scratching numbers into his fellow victims’ arms in indelible ink to create what would become one of the most potent symbols of the Holocaust. Waiting

in line to be tattooed, terrified and shaking, was a young girl. For

Lale – a dandy, a jack-the-lad, a bit of a chancer – it was love at

first sight. And he was determined not only to survive himself, but to

ensure this woman, Gita, did, too.

So begins one of the most

life-affirming, courageous, unforgettable and human stories of the

Holocaust: the love story of the tattooist of Auschwitz.
