Cilka’s Journey by Heather Morris

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.
