The Tattooist of Auschwitz
The Tattooist of Auschwitz A Novel By Morris, Heather eBook - 2018 | First U.S. edition.

Ultimately, I could not find much to recommend in this book. It's meant to be a tale of survival. However, I cannot get past the fact that the main character survived by working with the Nazis. Furthermore, he steals from the personal belongings confiscated by Nazi officers from their victim to bribe guards and buy favors and special treatment for himself and woman he loves. I'm sure it's hard to find morality, even among the prisoners, in a concentration camp, but the tattooist's only morality seems to be that he and his girlfriend must survive.
