Gripping and harrowing. Stories like this must be told, and must never be forgotten.

I can tell, right from the very first sentence, that this book is going to be another triumph from Heather Morris. Morris holds no punches as she describes life in the death camps, on this occasion starting with 16 year old Cilka's awful journey to Auschwitz. The way the journey is described, the sorrow and suffering of the women and children crammed into the cattle train, it's heart breaking. I love that the book reintroduces us to Lale Sokolov, the Tattooist of Auschwitz, as he gently tattoos Cilka's arm as she enters the camp. I just want to read the whole thing right now!
