    I loved The Tattooist of Auschwitz After I read the book I read that there were questions concerning the veracity of this book I did not read this as a work of nonfiction, but rather a work of fiction based on real events I certainly get that there may be inaccuracies, but the spirit of the novel worked for me A message that must be conveyed the importance of never forgetting the horrific things that happened Things that we have to be reminded of because there are so few Holocaust survivors left, because of the rise of antisemitism in the world, and because there is a lack of awareness of the Holocaust among young people There are, I m certain, many nonfiction books and documents covering the Holocaust and the Siberian Gulags , but I ve never been a big reader of nonfiction For me, and this is just my personal experience, it has been mostly Holocaust fiction that has has opened my eyes to the atrocities and has broken my heart with im...

    The Year is 1942 and Cilka is only sixteen years old when she is taken to Auschwitz Birkenau Concentration Camp She was a beautiful girl She was raped and sexually abused by two S.S Officers She does whatever she has to do, to stay alive and survive Then she is free from the concentration camps but then she is condemned She is charged with sleeping with the enemy and is then sent to Siberian Prison Camp for 15 years She faces challenges both new and horribly familiar, including the unwanted attention of the guards She then becomes a nurse and has a little bit of freedom She begins to tend to the ill in the camp, struggling to care for them under brutal conditions.I loved loved loved this book This is a historical novel and there are some graphic scenes that are dark This book was a lot darker than The Tattooist of Auschwitz This book can be read as a standalone It is an emotional read The S.S Officers are monsters, they kill and hurt ...

    A wonderful book about one woman s amazing tale, Cilka s Journey is a book where you struggle to come to terms with man s inhumanity to man I mean, how much can one woman go through in one lifetime Based on the true story of Cecilia Klein, first incarcerated in Auschwitz Birkenau extermination camp, when the camp is finally freed by the allies she finds herself arrested for collaboration with the Nazis, and sent to a Soviet gulag above the Arctic Circle.Cilka was obviously an extraordinary young woman, only sixteen when first sent to Auschwitz, she did what she could to survive, and found she had to pay for it through the years that followed We first met Cilka in the author s fantastic book The Tattooist Of Auschwitz, whereas Cilka s Journey is a fictional tale about her time spent in the gulags Conditions in the camp come to the fore, Cilka having to cope with rape, coercion, and the bitter cold of Siberia Yet through it all hope shi...

    4.5 stars rounded down This is a book of historical fiction Cilka Klein was a real life person who was taken by Germans in WWII to Auschwitz and then Birkenau concentration camps when she was only 16 The author confirmed that Cilka was a real person, but many events in the book are her own interpretation of Cilka s experiences.The German camp commandant notices her beauty and takes for his personal sex slave in 1942 She survives because of this The Soviet Army liberates the camp in 1945 They decide that she was a collaborator because she slept with the enemy They sentence her to 15 years hard labor She is sent to another concentration camp, Vorkuta, in the far north of the USSR She is taken under the wing of the camp doctor, who recognizes her extraordinary abilities Cilka trains to be a nurse and survives 10 years in Vorkuta before being released This is an inspiring story of courage and the will to survive in the face of terrible, l...

    NOW AVAILABLE Memories of her old life have faded, become blurred At some point it became too painful to remember that life with her family, in Bardejov, existed When faced with the choice between blind obedience to those in charge or death, Cilka chooses life, but never really fully commits to either choice, as physically, emotionally and mentally drained as she is Still, there is something inside her that fights to live even when she seems to have nothing left to give The rules change day to day here, she thinks And though this camp has a different purpose to get them to work for Russia, rather than killing them for being Jewish in these conditions, and with constant rape, always the threat of violence and the hole, Cilka can see that she has gone from one cruel, inhuman place to another Still a teenager when she was taken to Auschwitz Birkenau Concentration Camp in 1942, where she was first used as a tool for the pl...

    The Tattooist of Auschwitz 2 Having survived being the enslaved mistress of a powerful Nazi leader at Auschwitz, the story begins with Cilka charged as a collaborator, loaded on a train with other women, and taken to the now notorious Vorkuta Gulag in 1945 After arriving at the work camp, her and the other women in her hut battle for trust, hope, and forgiveness She finds herself, yet again, in a position where survival trumps ethics Cilka grasps for a greater purpose after leaving behind her dark past and quickly finds herself in a position to work within the confines of the Gulag hospital She struggles to justify some of the hospital policies but also questions her own intentions Having discerned hope as only a barren illusion, Cilka takes the reader on a haunting and remarkable journey Again, as she has experienced over and over in her young life, she finds herself with two choices, one, the narrow path opening up in front of h...
