Editorial Reviews

Review

“In an incredibly moving collection of essays, tales, and autobiographical sketches, Wiesel describes the agonizing plight of the Holocaust survivor who must try to relate that which is beyond words, and to search for meaning in experiences that defy understanding. Many of the haunting themes, memorable characters, and striking episodes of Wiesel’s novels are intimately revealed in these pages.”
Library Journal

Format: Hardcover
"One Generation After" came on the heels of Wiesel's novel "A Beggar in Jerusalem" which focused on the same concerns about the aftermath of WWII and the Six Day War. "One Generation After" is a series of collected thoughts, some fashioned as dialogues, others as stories, about the place of Jews in the world twenty-five years after the Holocaust. The events of WWII are very much alive in Wiesel's writings, and in the world in general, as he explores what it means to be a Jew and the place that Israel holds within the world and the factors that shape identity.

Perhaps one of the most moving stories in this book is Wiesel's account of returning to his hometown in search of the gold watch he received for his bar mitzvah. Before his family was taken to the concentration camps, they buried their valuables in their yard; but upon returning to a village that is no longer the same and digging up the corroded watch, he realizes he cannot take it with him. He never returns to his village. But not all of the tales are memories of Wiesel's alone. He talks about people he met during the war and after, whose lives were forever altered. He offers his thoughts into issues of the day that still resonate in today's world. His thoughts on why Israel is so scorned by the world are insightful and sadly, dead on. And he offers a compelling explanation for why so many who survived the camps have struggled with faith.

Elie Wiesel is a talented and intelligent writer, whose voice the world may never have heard if it wasn't for his experience in Auschwitz. He has spent his life as a witness, testifying to what he has seen, and keeping the memories of those who did not survive.

Prettily written, but not at all cohesive. On the jacket it describes him finding the watch, but this story takes up a mere chapter or two of the book. The rest are interviews, anecdotes, and personal stories. Not at all expected, but decent.

I expected the second book to be stronger in plot and character development...however, it was sad to see that the character followed in his father's disasterous footsteps. In my opinion, it could have had a better ending.
