The Tattooist of Auschwitz
The Reading Group will meet on Monday, June 17, at 6:00 p.m. in the Parish Hall to discuss The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris.
“On April 1942, Lale Sokolov, a Slovakian Jew, is forcibly transported to the concentration camps at Auschwitz-Birkenau. When his captors discover that he speaks several languages, he is put to work as a Tätowierer (the German word for tattooist), tasked with permanently marking his fellow prisoners.
A vivid, harrowing, and ultimately hopeful re-creation of Lale Sokolov’s experiences as the man who tattooed the arms of thousands of prisoners with what would become one of the most potent symbols of the Holocaust, The Tattooist of Auschwitz is also a testament to the endurance of love and humanity under the darkest possible conditions.”
All are welcome! Pizza, water, and wine will be provided. Please bring $5.00 to offset the cost of the food and wine.
