Product Description

Review

A slim volume of terrifying power (The New York Times)

Through his eyes, we witness the depths of both human cruelty and human grace-and we're left grappling with what remains of Elie, a teenage boy caught between the two. I gain courage from his courage (Oprah Winfrey)

About the Author

Elie Wiesel was born in 1928 in Sighet, Transylvania, which is now part of Romania. He was fifteen years old when he and his family were deported by the Nazis to Auschwitz. After the war, Elie Wiesel studied in Paris and later became a journalist. During an interview with the distinguished French writer, Francois Mauriac, he was persuaded to write about his experiences in the death camps. The result was his internationally acclaimed memoir, La Nuit or Night, which has since been translated into more than thirty languages.

48 of 49 people found the following review helpful By Kurt Messick HALL OF FAME on 19 Jan. 2006
Format: Hardcover
I recall when I first read 'Night', it was just after Elie Wiesel had given a lecture at my university. It was in the mid-1980s, and the lecture hall was standing-room-only. Wiesel's presentation moved us to tears, and moved us to anger, and moved me to want to follow up on his words by reading what he had written.
This is supposed to be fiction, but in a style that seems to be typical of many modern Israeli novelists, it is so close to the truth of the actual events that transpired in Wiesel's life that it might as well be treated as autobiographical. This is actually part of a trilogy - Night, Dawn, and The Accident - although each element stands alone with integrity.
How does one deal with survival after such atrocities as that at Birkenau and Auschwitz? How can one have faith in the world? How can one accept that a people so closely identified with a powerful God can ever accept that God again? Where is God in the midst of such things?
Wiesel himself as spent his life in search of such answers, but doesn't provide them here. Why then would one want to read such accounts as these? Wiesel was silent for many years, until he was brought into speech and writing as a witness to the events. Wiesel proclaims that there is in the world now a new commandment - 'Thou shalt not stand idly by' - when such things are happening, one must act. One must remember the past in all its personal aspects to both honour those who suffered and to forestall such things happening again (which, given the the depressing repetitive nature of history, is a difficult task).
This is the longest short book I've ever read.

Format: Paperback
Without a doubt this is one of the greatest books of the twentieth century, made even greater by the fact that it comes from one of humanity's darkest moments. Through the telling of his own childhood experiences in pre and post-nazi Hungary, and later as an adolescent in the Third Reich's deathcamps, Elie Wiesel raises powerful questions. The book questions the whys and wherefores of the Holocaust, demanding to know where was God? Where was Man? And how should one respond to the terrible brute fact of the tragedy of the Jewish people? The book provides an excellent, thoughtful (wise even) and compelling introduction to Wiesel's life and work and to the themes of Holocaust literature and response in general. By asking questions the book calls for answers, not only from nations, governments, religious authorities and God, but also from the reader himself. Reading this book is no light undertaking, but it is a necessary one for anyone (Jew and non-Jew alike) who wishes to consider the implications of the Holocaust for all Humankind. I cannot recommend this powerful novel highly enough.

Format: Paperback
This personal account of the holocaust by Elie Wiesel's book is a horrifying story of the Nazi death camps. The author tells the story in a simple manner, yet it is easy for a reader to end up feeling haunted by the accounts in NIGHT. It stirs sadness and profound questions in the bosom of a reader. The lessons from this book about the evil side of fallen human nature and the faith, courage and moral strength to fight the evil must never be forgotten. I recommend this book to any reader interested in the holocaust and the specter of mass killings plaguing the world today.Survival In Auschwitz, Union Moujik, Shake hands with the Devil, Disciples of Fortune,First They Killed My Father, Triple Agent Double, King Leopold's Ghost, Pol Pot: Anatomy of a Nightmare,The Gulag Archipelago are also recommended reads to help have a better understanding of threat humanity faces from the evil ideologies of hate

20 of 21 people found the following review helpful By J. Cooper on 3 April 2009
Format: Paperback
This is a small but very emotive book that contains the recollections of Elie Wiesel and his family whilst at Auschwitz.

It is small but by no means unsubstantial, as the book is very powerfully written and you can clearly see the high level of emotion the author is experiencing as he puts pen to paper and relives past traumatic events.

This book is necessary reading for those who usually read about the Holocaust and Auschwitz.

The book is upsetting as one would naturally expect when reading about this event, as you are reading about real people and not fictionalised characters. However, I believe it is important that as many people read this book as possible as it is outstanding and a testament to the determination of a human being's desire to continue to exist against all the odds.
