For more than 50 years Lale Sokolov lived with a secret in Melbourne. He had been the tattooist of Auschwitz who tattooed thousands of prisoners. When prisoners arrived at Auschwitz-Birkenau, they were selected either for forced labor or immediate execution. Their heads were shaved, their belongings taken and became numbers, which were tattooed on their arms. The numbers on the forearms have become one of the most recognizable symbols of the Holocaust. Author Heather Morris, after spending 3 years recording Lales story before he died in 2006, recently published a book, The Tattooist of Auschwitz based on his incredible story of survival and impossible love at the concentration camp. It is unthinkable love story. Lale met the love of his life, Gita while tattooing her arms in Auschwitz. The story of how he found her after the war, seemed to be taken out of a Hollywood movie.
