The Tattooist Of Auschwitz TV Adaptation: Everything We Know So Far
What Is The Tattooist Of Auschwitz About?
The novel is based on the true story of Lali, a Slovakian Jew sent to Auschwitz in 1942. Tasked with tattooing identification numbers onto the arms of new prisoners, Lali meets and instantly falls in love with Gita, a fellow inmate. Under the brutal watch of Nazi guards at the camp, the pair fight to keep each other – and their relationship – alive.
The TV series adds another dimension to this tale by transporting viewers to the post-war period, when Lali meets Heather Morris and recounts his past. It’s during his conversations with Heather that Lali – now in his 80s – relives his memories of Auschwitz and his love story with Gita.
