This amazing book was written by a Holocaust survivor about his time as a teenage boy in a concentration camp.
I read this book in a day. I literally could not put it down.
Night was written years and years ago and was recently re-translated by the author’s wife.
Elie Wiesel is a Nobel Peace Prize winner and the author of many, many more books that I plan to explore. I am so amazed how he was able to share his heart wrenching story.
I would, hands-down, recommend this book to everyone.
Goodreads describes the book:
Night A terrifying account of the Nazi death camp horror that turns a young Jewish boy into an agonized witness to the death of his family…the death of his innocence…and the death of his God. Penetrating and powerful, as personal as The Diary Of Anne Frank, Night awakens the shocking memory of evil at its absolute and carries with it the unforgettable message that this horror must never be allowed to happen again.
