    Inhaltsangabe

    The Tattooist of Auschwitz is based on the true story of Lale and Gita Sokolov, two Slovakian Jews who survived Auschwitz and eventually made their home in Australia. In that terrible place, Lale was given the job of tattooing the prisoners marked for survival - literally scratching numbers into his fellow victims' arms in indelible ink to create what would become one of the most potent symbols of the Holocaust. Lale used the infinitesimal freedom of movement that this position awarded him to exchange jewels and money taken from murdered Jews for food to keep others alive. If he had been caught, he would have been killed; many owed him their survival. 

    There have been many books about the Holocaust - and there will be many more. What makes this one so memorable is Lale Sokolov's incredible zest for life. He understood exactly what was in store for him and his fellow prisoners, and he was determined to survive - not just to survive but to leave the camp with his dignity and integrity intact, to live his life to the full. Terrible though this story is, it is also a story of hope and of courage. It is also - almost unbelievably - a love story. Waiting in line to be tattooed, terrified and shaking, was a young girl. For Lale - a dandy, a jack-the-lad, a bit of a chancer - it was love at first sight, and he determined not only to survive himself but to ensure that Gita did, too. His story - their story - will make you weep, but you will also find it uplifting. It shows the very best of humanity in the very worst of circumstances. 

    Like many survivors, Lale and Gita told few people their story after the war. They eventually made their way to Australia, where they raised a son and had a successful life. But when Gita died, Lale felt he could no longer carry the burden of their past alone. He chose to tell his story.

    Great story, gripping narration!

    Just finished this impressive audiobook! Thank you, Heather Morris, for a sensitive portrait of experiences so frightening one can hardly believe they once happened which makes it even more important to report the stories of a witness and survivor! "Zeitzeugen" as we call them in German are immensely important to keep up the memory and prevent such horrid political and inhuman conditions in future.
    I especially loved the technique of narration shifting perspectives abruptly. Kudos, Richard Armitage!

    struggle in strange times - perfectly written

    Auf welchen Platz würden Sie The Tattooist of Auschwitz auf Ihrer Hörbuch-Bestenliste setzen?

    definitiv place 1.

    Welcher Moment von The Tattooist of Auschwitz ist Ihnen besonders im Gedächtnis geblieben?

    The time in Ausschwitz. It was such a strange and shocking time but the author describes it without to much drama.

    Hat Ihnen Richard Armitage an der Geschichte etwas vermittelt, was Sie vielleicht beim Selberlesen gar nicht bemerkt hätten?

    I would not have read the book if he wouldn't read it. I like his way of reading very much. I am happy to have found this pearl of a book through him.

    Hat dieses Hörbuch Sie emotional stark bewegt? Mussten Sie laut z.B. lachen, weinen, zweifeln, etc.?

    The book is very moving. It is the first time I thought about the people that lived for a long time in a concentration camp. I never imagined how life must be there. and even that love and friendship could grow there.

    Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

    Even as it plays in hard times it is interesting and nice to listen to.

    Tolles HörBuch ABER...

    Die Geschichte ist bewegend und spannend, Richard als Sprecher wird dem Buch mehr als gerecht.
    ABER: die Bearbeitung ist weniger gelungen. Man hört seltsame Schnitte und Veränderungen im Sound/Stimme. Ich kann nur vermuten woran es liegt. Es stört ein wenig den Hörfluss da es auch innerhalb von einem Satz vorkommt.
    Das geht doch besser.
    Man gewöhnt sich im Laufe des Zuhörens etwas daran, ist aber schade und sollte nicht passieren.

    Story well told

    Good read. The story flows, and there's a lot to absorb. Sure put's one's own life into perspective. It is a chance to see through a prisoner's eyes about the happenings at the consentration camps.

    An amazing book and an outstanding performer - BUT

    Among the many, many books dealing with the Third Reich, Auschwitz and the systematic murder of Jews in that time, "The Tatooist" is something special... not only for the fact that it tells a true story, but the struggle of people incarcerated in the most vile of places imaginable and doing everything - literally everything - to survive - and owning up to it.

    I have rarely read - and heard - a story that moved me as much.

    Richard Armitage is a brilliant performer and every single audiobook done by him is a treat. He has an exceptional voice that's easy to listen to and manages to convey the emotions of the characters without over-acting.

    I saw an interview some time back, where he received an award, and was talking about the recording of this particular audio book as well... The point was that he had to re-record sequences, since in first performing them he got too emotional and his aim was to make the listener feel it, but not feel it for them.

    This is were the overall 3-star-rating comes from. Bolinda has done a terrible job editing / putting together this audiobook!

    Whichever story Richard reads, it's a a pleasure to listen to, but they messed this one up - right in the middle of the sentence different recordings are mixed together - the tone of voice changes, switches back to the previous one, and back again - the tonality is very different - possibly more emotional - for a word or two and thus for me, totally disrupts the flow of the storyline. I notice this more than the actual words spoken and involuntarily keep concentrating on it, waiting for the next "hiccup".

    If this had been done chapter-wise, it would still have been noticable put probably not as disruptive as it is in the way Bolinda did it.

    It's a real shame, since this could have been a true master piece.

    Superb narration and gripping story

    Richard Armitage has a voice that is an absolute dream to listen to, and the soft tone of his voice so perfectly suits the tone of the story.

    An moving story which was so easy to listen to for hours on end, despite the heaviness of it. Will definitely re-listen to this.

    Historically incorrect, sadly a missed opportunity

    Unfortunately this is a missed opportunity at giving an accurate insight into what it meant to be a prisoner at a KL such as Auschwitz. The "love story" obviously was more important than historical fact. Learn more about the inaccuracies here: "Given the number of factual errors, therefore, this book cannot be recommended as a valuable title for persons who want to explore and understand the history of KL Auschwitz."https://view.joomag.com/memoria-en-no-14-11-2018/0766192001543510530/p6?short

    Enjoyed this Book

    Good story, tastefully written. I think the reader/performer was probably good; he certainly had a nice voice, but the recording was bad. It sounded like it had been spliced together from many different readings. Despite this I enjoyed the book very much.
