Night by Elie Wiesel :):):):):)


Please see review below:

This is a very powerful book, concisely and beautifully written. I have watched documentaries and films about the Holocaust and have read memoirs of survivors. This is the best that I have read yet.

Theres no other book that has a Preface and a Foreword so beautifully written that I felt that it was like reading a book in itself. The Preface and the Foreword were written using rich, honest words and you will fell the realness of what was being said that I found myself stopping at times and gazing into space thinking of what I just read.

The book itself was so engaging, heart-wrenching, and real that you can clearly picture in your mind what was happening, as clear as watching a movie. The author did not bother with superfluous words, rather he honored his life story (and that of others) by using direct, simple, and heartfelt words.

Reading this account reminded me of the horror of the Holocaust and angered me at the injustice that some of the war criminals were allowed to live freely without punishment. It angered me that there are still Anti-Semites who try to let others believe that the Holocaust was just a hoax and that it did not really happen.

I highly recommend for everyone to read this account to honor the 6 million Jews whose lives were brutally taken during the Holocaust and to honor the survivors whose lives have been tainted by this unimaginable horror even as they live today. I quote an excerpt from the author's Preface:

"... I only know that without this testimony, my life as a writer - or my life, period - would not have become what it is: that of a witness who believes he has a moral obligation to try to prevent the enemy from enjoying one last victory by allowing his crimes to be erased from human memory."

I would also like to commend the excellent new translation by the author's wife, Marion Wiesel. This new edition also includes the Nobel Peace Prize Acceptance Speech delivered by Elie Wiesel in 1986. His speech will awaken one's conscience and open one's eyes that such great injustice and oppression still exist today, not only towards religion but towards race and political view. His earnest plea towards peace and not violence may be a small voice in today's world, but still a powerful fighting voice.
I travel the world. I take nothing but pictures, kill nothing but time and leave nothing but footprints. ― Maarten Schfer
