Night is Elie Wieselís 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, Elieís wife and frequent translator, presents this seminal memoir in the language and spirit truest to the authorís 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 manís 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.

I first read this book in H.S. and had to pick up again. I've brought the book about 2 or 3x and I LOVE it! It's a great book and shows a truth of what happened to many people in the HolocaustRead More
You cannot read this book without often crying or puking. Every page drips with depravity, brutalty and inconceivably wickedness. Elie Wiesel, the nobel laureate was a holocaust survivor who as boy endured unimaginable horror in Hitler's concentration camps. Never again.Read More
This is the most heart-breaking volume I've ever read. These people witnessed the most horrific sights and endured the most painful suffering...and they survived. I don't know if I could have! This new translation by Elie's wife rings with the truth and it is so matter-of-fact that I found myself shaking my head in disbelief. How could this have happened and nobody knew? This should be read in every school in every city in every land. Please, God, that it shouldn't happen again.Read More
A must read... for all ages beginning in the teenage years. One man's journey through suffering and surrvival in the camps. This is a motivational read in its own.Read More
Elie Wiesel, there is not much more to say. His account of the time he and his father spent in concentration camps in Germany during WWII is devastating. He explores the emotions of a society gone crazy with compassion the silent victim. Those who choose to deny the existence of the depravity of those times should read and understand the horror and be grateful it was not them. I applaud this man's strength and character and ability to recover and move forward after such. My "entertainment" rating does not detract from this well written passage. This subject could never be entertaining.Read More
