Description

Against all the odds, the three sisters survived the most heinous, systematic genocide that the world has ever known. Accidents are not nice and while the author does mention the accident it is the aftermath that he focuses on. Magda, only 17, stays with her mother and grandfather, hiding out in a neighbour's attic or in the forest when the Nazi militia come to round up friends, neighbours and family. I remember the small knife she always carried in her purse, next to the mints she would share with me during car rides; the knife that she would occasionally take out and cradle in her hand, working her thumb over the worn handle. Their incredible survival, their arrival to and settlement in Israel, and their thriving ‘tribe’, are all evidence of their victory.

Recommend to fans of Historical Fiction, WWII survival and anyone who wants to learn about these amazing sisters. It details how Cibi and Livia had to do anything they could to survive, how they were shown moments of kindness, how they’re love for each other kept them going. She shares how their lives changed once living in Israel and included notes in the form of "Afterward" with family members. I remember the laughter around the table as bellies ached and tears rolled down cheeks, our laughter so hard we couldn’t catch our breath; as the pain that was always there below the surface found its release. Several years later, their beloved father is dead, but the promise they made to him continues to live on.At the end of the book, Morris shares with us actual accounts from the sisters and their descendants which was done beautifully and truly makes you feel connected to each person in the book. This was the first time I realised her heroism: the way my mother and her two sisters survived those horrible times. With sections divided by years rather than perspective, each sister’s point-of-view is explored in most chapters, sometimes on the same page, resulting in the “head-hopping” problem.

From international bestselling author Heather Morris comes the breathtaking conclusion to The Tattooist of Auschwitz trilogy. The theme of the sisters was to ‘always protect’ each other - a ‘promise’ they made to their father.The stories of millions ended during the war and the concentration camps and it is inspiring to read that there are some survivors who were able to go on and have families and fulfilling lives after their near death experiences. There aren't many Auschwitz/Birkenau survivors left but Heather Morris was able to talk with Livia, Magda, and their families, in 2019/2020, about their experiences before, during and after their lives in the concentration camps.

Together again, the sisters not only fulfill the promise to watch after each other, they also make another promise — the fierce will to live and survive the horrors of the camp, no matter what. These experiences led to severe PTSD, feelings that did not have a name back then and no way to deal with them. So many others lived and died anonymously, even though their lives meant enough that they could have been memorialized. A reader was mad at me and almost gave me a lecture when I simply posted “I hope that this one is better than the previous books”.This story is one that was woven in and out of the lives of these characters and also a husband, business partner and solicitor. Además la autora es guionista, que no ESCRITORA, y lo que hace es contar la vida tal cual se la contaron, NO SOLO ESTE, SINO LOS TRES LIBROS, por lo que no son historias que describan al detalle las atrocidades que sufrieron (a veces no son necesarias), y no por ello dejan de ser libros duros.

In her third novel, Heather Morris once again brings us a tale of tragedy, heartbreak, and survival through the story of Slovakian sisters Cibi, Magda, and Livi Meller. They were all in the same chapter with almost no indication of which character you were reading about. That reader’s defence was that the author is a social worker, not a creative writing major, and that the book is based on real life and that I should read it as it is. That's a hard promise to make as people are different, have different personalities and life takes us in all different directions. I thought the narrative read more like a gangland thriller, which is not a genre that I particularly enjoy.Little did I know that the purchase of The Tattooist would lay the foundation towards the fulfilment of my long-held dream. Ema described to me the depravity that went on in that place and about life beyond the dividing electrical fence.
