Born into a Jewish ghetto in Hungary, as a child, Elie Wiesel was sent to the Nazi concentration camps at Auschwitz and Buchenwald. This is his account of that atrocity: the ever-increasing horrors he endured, the loss of his family and his struggle to survive in a world that stripped him of humanity, dignity and faith. Describing in simple terms the tragic murder of a people from a survivor's perspective, Night is among the most personal, intimate and poignant of all accounts of the Holocaust. A compelling consideration of the darkest side of human nature and the enduring power of hope, it remains one of the most important works of the twentieth century.

MEDIA REVIEWS
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 *

“Essential reading!”

This should be essential reading for all, why is this book not as widely known as Anne Frank's diary?
I urge everyone to read it.
