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.

    I had to read this book in the eighth grade for school. The topic, which granted is horrible, does not need to be taught this way to kids.

    This book is amazing. It's graphic but gives a lot of specific details about living in the concentration camps during the holocaust.

    What does one say about this life? His incredible courage is beyond anything that I am able to comprehend. This book will live in my heart as does my memory of Auschwitz that I visited for the first time this year.

    Every school must have this as required reading. Because Elie was a child, students will identify with him. And the teachers, from an adult perspective, will learn too.
