it was amazing

The story narrates the main character's Lale during his experience in Auschwitz and Birkenau concentration camps. We see the years he spends in these atrocious locations from the eyes of the tattooist, the person in charge to record those numbers on all people who arrived at these camps. It was not only Jews but Romani and communists as well.

Meeting the love of his life, Lale determines he will survive the camp and tries his best to not only help himself but the people he manages to meet during these years, making a difference in all these lives.

It's a powerful and emotional story. A part of the history that most of us don't like to remember but that we need to in order to make sure this doesn't repeat again. Having met a person who escaped the concentration camps changed my life and how I see the Holocaust in general.

This story was special for me and made me remember a long-gone person who marked my childhood.
Even if you don't like to read Holocaust stories or you think there are many out there, this one is special and I definitely recommend it.
