Description

A New Translation From The French By Marion Wiesel

Night is Elie Wiesel's masterpiece, a candid, horrific, and deeply poignant autobiographical account of his survival as a teenager in the Nazi death camps. This new translation by Marion Wiesel, Elie's wife and frequent translator, presents this seminal memoir in the language and spirit truest to the author's original intent. And in a substantive new preface, Elie reflects on the enduring importance of Night and his lifelong, passionate dedication to ensuring that the world never forgets man's capacity for inhumanity to man.

Night offers much more than a litany of the daily terrors, everyday perversions, and rampant sadism at Auschwitz and Buchenwald; it also eloquently addresses many of the philosophical as well as personal questions implicit in any serious consideration of what the Holocaust was, what it meant, and what its legacy is and will be.

    Fear is felt... The hatred is there. To repeat what happened in those days would be unforgivable. No one can say they feel this way. Even those who suffered as he did. They all knew pain. Just differently. This novel shows that. From the inmates to the officers, all suffered. This book shows only a glimpse of what it was like to live in WW 2. That is what makes it such a powerful novel. That is what makes it touching.

    This book needs to be read and shared amongst all. It's honesty and brutality give insight into what the Jews of Europe went through and the harshness of it. It also clearly represents what the human soul can and can't endure.
  • Phenomenal

    I read this book in a high school english class and absolutely loved it. You feel like you're really there with Wiessel throughout the entire thing.

    This chilling account of the plight of Elie Wiesel and his family being sent to the concentration camp at Buna in1944 is ghastly. The author is very lucky indeed, to have survived, and I think it is important for all of us to read this account, and others like them, lest we forget. Our freedom should never be taken for granted, nor should the ultimate sacrifice that so many made ever be forgotten.

    Gut-wrenching, yet incredibly inspirering, a triumph over horror.

    This book is beyond one of the most important pieces of literature ever written. You will weep - and you will remember to never forget. I've read it to both of my children.
