This is the second book in The Tattooist of Auschwitz series by Heather Morris but can also be read as a standalone. Cilka's Journey is based on a true story of a woman who survives Auschwitz, only to find herself locked away again. Hauled off to Auschwitz-Birkenau Concentration Camp when Cilka Klein was sixteen, she survived the horrifying years with smarts and the strongest of wills. Having caught the eye of a high Nazi official, she was subjected to brutality and sexual exploitation that she bore in order to stay alive and helped many prisoners while also helplessly being unable to prevent the deaths of many others. The end of the war saw freedom for Cilka. I highly recommend this book to people who enjoy historical fiction based on true events, women's survival in WWII, and anyone who enjoyed the Tattooist of Auschwitz. This is a real thought provoking book that I simply could not put down.
