I enjoyed this sequel book of "The Tattooist of Auschwitz" which provides a deeply touching story of Cilka's life in a Siberian prison camp. Cilka had survived the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp but upon her release was sentenced to 15 years of imprisonment for collaborating with the enemy. This book really makes the reader think about what they would do to survive a terrible life situation and enlightens the reader that the atrocities of WWII didn't end when the war ended. The fictional story is based on Cilka's life culled by the author from research and interviews with those who knew her. Some of the themes running through the story are the strength of women, the meaning of love and hope, and finding a life purpose. The end of the book contains a very interesting chapter about the history of the Vorkuta prison camp. Highly recommend this moving novel!
