The Tattooist of Auschwitz – Heather Morris
I've read many historical accounts of the Holocaust. I've watched movies. It's something so terrible to even imagine and yet as humans we are curious to 'experience' it through media.
The writing isn't especially amazing, but that story is quite interesting. It is a powerful love story of luck, determination, amidst the horror of the concentration camps of WWII. It doesn't have to be so well written because all the movies and books I've read (Schindler's List, Unbroken, Photographer of Mauthausen etc) give your mind adequate imagery to add to this story.
”...a man who lectures on taxation and interest rates can't help but get involved in the politics of his country. Politics will help you understand the world until you don't understand it anymore, and then it will get your thrown into a prison camp. Politics and religion both.”
