Synopsis

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.

    Night, by Elie Wiesel

    Coming of age in The Kingdom of Night, young Eliezer, experiences the kids of his mother and sister as Night fell upon their community. Through the long hours of darkness, hoping for the arrival of the rising sun, he loses almost everything else that had meaning - his dignity, his sense of self, and, shortly before the sunrise, his father. The lone survivor in his family, Elie Wiesel tells the horrific story if a young teenage Jewish boy and the evils of Nazi Germany's "Final Solution". But this story is not just his story, it is the story of every soul which has had to languish and suffer in the heat of hatred and persecution. The story is told for one reason - that experiencing it we might work so that the powers of Night be broken forever. Never again! Never again. Never again!

    Beautiful yet upsetting

    I meant to read this book for many years but I kept forgetting to buy it. So glad I finally bought it. It is captivating to hear the story from someone who survived such horrific events. It is a masterpiece in its own right and great for young adults and adults alike.

    A survivor

    The will to live is strong. Where so many found the strength and will to see another day, is beyond my understanding.
