The incredible story of the tattoo artist from Auschwitz-Birkenau and the woman he loved.

Lale Sokolov is well dressed, a charmer, a woman. He is also Jewish. During the first transport from Slovakia to Auschwitz in 1942, Lale immediately distinguished himself among his fellow prisoners. In the camp he is sought, cared for and used in the privileged position of the tattoo artist - the tattoo artist - to mark his fellow prisoners forever. One of them is a young woman, Gita, who steals his heart at first sight.

Her life has been given a new meaning, Lale does her best through struggle and suffering for his position forever.

This story full of beauty and hope is based on years of interviews that author Heather Morris had with the real Holocaust survivor and Auschwitz-Birkenau tattoo artist Ludwig (Lale) Sokolov. It`s heartbreaking, enlightening, and unforgettable.
