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.

    This book illustrates very well the terrors and horrors of World War Two. It helps you understand what the Jews and disabled and others went through in the hands of the nazis. The book is very graphic and at sometimes scary.
  • Outstanding!

    I never did read Elie Weisel’s book “Night,” like so many did during their high school years. This book gives such a great perspective and insight of what a child had to endure while being a prisoner in the concentration camps. After I started reading, I could not put it down and ended up finishing the book in a couple of hours.

    A heart wrenching book that should be required reading in schools! May we never forget the terror and abuse faced by the Jews duringWorld War II.

    A history of a person that will place you in the middle of one of the most disgusting atrocities perpetrated on the world. In this book, you are hurt and broken with the people. You feel the misery and the torn identities of good people. The saddest part of this story is that it has not been read by every person in the world and in every language. I appeal you to read and feel the pain, and NOT just know the history.
  • Excellent read

    This is an amazing book; it removes the abstraction of the holocaust and gives you a first hand recount of the atrocities of the concentration camps.

    I feel such shame with what humans do to one another. It’s so horrible that our Country did not step in to help the annihilation of the Jews sooner. We could have saved so many lives. There will always be war and the innocent will suffer.
  • Intense, heart wrenching

    This is a great document for our day. A reminder of how dark the world can turn in such a short amount of time, and how much impact one man can make on the world, for bad or good. One of the few books that can actually make me sympathize with the writer and feel the scenes and emotions. Beautifully described. An important historical document for all ages to come. We must be aware of the tragedies endured by millions so that we might prevent this from happening again.

    I have toured the camps in Poland. I was reading this book forgetting it was once a reality and not fiction. Must read
