This book follows The Tattooist of Auschwitz and is based on the true story of Cilka Klein, who survives Auschwitz only to be sentenced to 15 years at a Russian labour camp in Siberia for having “helped” the Nazis. Again, she must fight to survive. I found this book immensely readable and better written than Morris’ first book. I didn’t like the ending, which was just too tidy and was obviously the “based” part.
Gwenamon says: An incredible story of survival and spirit
