Lale is just a young man, who steps forward to volunteer to go to what he believes is a labor camp in order for his family to be protected during the second world war. This of course is a lie, and he is taken to Auschwitz where every day and every hour he struggles to survive.
While he tells the stories about the horrors that he witnesses around him, the essence of this story is a love affair, how he meets his true love Gita as he tattoos her number on her arm. Based on a true story told to the author this is quite the tale - I see a movie in the future. Haunting and unforgettable. 5/5
