A lot of the books I’ve read recently have had some connection to World War II. Although it may not be everybody’s favorite topic, it can sure be the setting for an emotional book.
I don’t believe that anybody had recommend The Tattooist of Auschwitz to me specifically. Instead, I had probably just heard the title thrown around enough times to get excited when I saw this book on the shelf.
