Love. Horror. Survival. Prisoner 32407’s startling true-life story. When Lale Sokolov, a Slovakian Jew, is dragged away to Auschwitz, he is given a number and a job: tattooing the other prisoners as they arrive. It’s not a choice, but it’s a stroke of luck; a rare stab at survival. As things turn out, it will not only save him from the gas chambers – but also give him a chance at true love. Lale keeps his mouth shut and his head down, trying to do his work and avoid the frightening guards. But on the day he spots Gita waiting in line for her tattoo, it’s love at first sight. Whatever happens, he must keep them both alive…
