About the book:

“How can a race that is spread out across multiple countries be considered a threat? For as long as he lives, be it short or long, he knows he will never comprehend this.”

Set in the time of “The Holocaust” and WW2 in 1942, this book is about Lale and Geeta who were the prisoners in the concentration camp in Auschwitz, Germany acquired Poland.

Lale is a Slovakian Jew who is rounded up by the Nazi troops. Having been forcefully taken away from his home and transported like an animal, surrounded by heavily armed guards, striped and numbered 32407, Lale is given a job as a “Tätowierer”. He must tattoo the number on every man, woman, child transported to the camp as prisoners. Here he meets Geeta, a prisoner in women’s block, when he is asked to re-tattoo her number on her wrist. They fall in love at first sight.

At the camp, he witnesses gassing of prisoners, mass shooting, unprovocatinal killing of people by the guards, atrocities & torture and so much more. But his heightened survival instinct, opportunistic nature and his determination to live beyond the torture and start a family with Geeta, helps him escape from the camp.

This book is about their journey from being dumped in the camp to escaping from the hell to make a beautiful life for themselves. It felt more like a memoir than a fiction novel. It lacked emotional depth but as the subject is very sensitive it does leave an impact. Those who are interested in the novels based on the “The Holocaust” may like this book
