Based on the global bestselling novel of the same name by Heather Morris, The Tattooist of Auschwitz is inspired by the heart-breaking true-life story of Lali (Jonah Hauer-King) and Gita Sokolov (Anna Próchniak). Lali arrived at Auschwitz-Birkenau in 1942, and shortly after arrival, he was made one of the tätowierer (tattooists), charged to ink identification numbers onto fellow prisoners’ arms. One day, he meets Gita when tattooing her prisoner number on her arm. They experience love at first sight, and so begins a courageous, unforgettable, and human story. Under constant guard from a volatile SS officer Baretzki (Jonas Nay), Lali and Gita became determined to keep each other alive.

Around 60 years later, Lali (Harvey Keitel) meets novice writer Heather Morris (Melanie Lynskey). Recently widowed, Lali finds the courage to tell the world his story. In recounting his story to Heather, Lali, in his 80s, faces the traumatic ghosts of his youth and relives his memories of falling in love in the most horrific of places.

Special thanks to Peacock.

A discussion with Holocaust survivor Mary Bauer, moderated by movie critic Scott Mantz, will follow the program
