In Nobel laureate Elie Wiesel's memoir Night, a scholarly, pious teenager is wracked with guilt at having survived the horror of the Holocaust and the genocidal campaign that consumed his family. His memories of the nightmare world of the death camps present him with an intolerable question: how can the God he once so fervently believed in have allowed these monstrous events to occur? There are no easy answers in this harrowing book, which probes life's essential riddles with the lucid anguish only great literature achieves. It marks the crucial first step in Wiesel's lifelong project to bear witness for those who died.
“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

On a side note, I bought this as a 'used-good' book from BreakTimeBooks, and had an issue with the copy they sent me, and they went above and beyond normal customer service to be sure I was 100% completely satisfied, going so far as to send me a better copy, at no charge. I know occasionally things slip through that may not be quite up to snuff, but their customer service went to great lengths to ensure everything was made right, and then some.
We read this to remember and NEVER FORGET!
Finally, I believe this is definitely an educational piece of literature that students should learn about. Genocide is an important part of our history- and a generation that has almost vanished.
This is an emotional read. In my opinion, it may tug on some people's heart strings. Enjoy the read, and I hope you get something out of it as I did.
