Product Description

Review

“A slim volume of terrifying power.”—The New York Times

"Required reading for all of humanity." —Oprah

“Wiesel has taken his own anguish and imaginatively metamorphosed it into art.” —Curt Leviant, Saturday Review

"To the best of my knowledge no one has left behind him so moving a record."—Alfred Kazin

"What makes this book so chilling is not the pretense of what happened but a very real description of every thought, fear and the apathetic attitude demonstrated as a response . . . Night, Wiesel's autobiographical masterpiece, is a heartbreaking memoir. Wiesel has taken his painful memories and channeled them into an amazing document which chronicles his most intense emotions every step along the way."—Jose Del Real, Anchorage Daily News

"As a human document, Night is almost unbearably painful, and certainly beyond criticism."—A. Alvarez, Commentary

Product 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing true story succintly told March 17 2006
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. DISCIPLES OF FORTUNE, SURVIVAL IN AUSCHWITZ, UNION MOUJIK, SHAKE HANDS WITH THE DEVIL, TRIPLE AGENT DOUBLE CROSS, POL PLO: ANATOMY OF A NIGHTMARE, GULAG ARCHIPELAGO are also recommended reads to help have a better understanding of threat humanity faces from the evil ideologies of hate.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hard to find fault with this one Jan. 1 2007
Format:Paperback
A truly magnificent novel, all-be it a short one. An incredible book is a great understatement. Wiesel's NIGHT will move you to tears, and move you to anger, and move you to want to follow up on his words by reading what he had written. This is supposed to be fiction, but, 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. NIGHT is part of a series - Night, Dawn, and The Accident You will find yourself asking many questions, 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 has 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, 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 honor those who suffered and to forestall such things happening again. This is the longest short book you ll ever read. It is one that will stay with you from the first page, and you'll never be able to shake the images brought forth, the misery and suffering, the existence of evil and brutality, the sadness and desolation. You'll discover that story don't always end with a happy ending. There is no happy ending here, even Wiesel's own survival is a questionable good here. How does one live after this? How does the world go on? If you enjoyed the book THE CORRECTIONS by Franzen, or the novel THE DOOMSDAY BOOK, then you'll take to this one.
