Editorial Reviews

Review

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

“Required reading for all humanity.” ―Oprah Winfrey

“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, The Reporter

“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

About the Author

Elie Wiesel (1928-2016) is the author of more than fifty books, including Night, his harrowing account of his experiences in Nazi concentration camps. The book, first published in 1955, was selected for Oprah's Book Club in 2006, and continues to be an important reminder of man's capacity for inhumanity. Wiesel was Andrew W. Mellon Professor in the Humanities at Boston University, and lived with his family in New York City. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1986.

Format: Paperback
Night is a painful and harrowing story about the madness and the evil that darkened Europe during the Second World War. Elie's story begins in Transylvania in a small Jewish neighborhood where Elie and his family live, unknowingly, on the brink of terror.

Elie, his family, and community are captured, shuttled into railroad cars, and transported to Auschwitz, Nazi Germany's largest concentration camp. So quickly turns the fate of Elie and his family that they disbelieve their circumstances even as they witness people being conducted en masse to gas chambers and crematoriums. The weak are killed. The strong become industrial slaves, entitling them only to hope for another day and a slower death.

Elie survives Auschwitz and Buchenwald, outliving both his mother and his sister. But Elie still has his father. Sensitive and intuitive, he notices that many fathers die after losing their loved ones. Elie realizes that if he were to die, his father would soon follow. Elie tells himself that he must live in order to give his father hope for living.

Elie does eventually live to see his father die in an infirmary, emaciated, exhausted, beaten, spiritless, and vulnerable like a child.

While his father's health is still in decline, Elie daily brings half his ration of bread to him, but that would not save his father from the darkness. A German soldier beats the last bit of life out of his father while he lay prostrate on the edge of death. "Elie," his father exhaled with barely the strength to whisper his son's name as his last word. Elie, motionless, unable to utter the words in his throat, confronts the guilt of being unable to help his father. How could he allow the soldier to beat his dying father? Why was he too afraid to cry out to answer his father's call?

What an emotional ride. I've been a Wiesel fan for a great many years and this book most assuredly did not disappoint. He had me from the opening page and I found it difficult to put down. Young and old alike need to read this Trilogy. I am certain, from speaking to many 20-somethings, that they cannot relate and find it difficult to believe that such things could ever happen. Wiesel gives you three different stories, all of which are clearly different with no relationship to the previous story, but then again, they DO relate. You won't be disappointed.

This is a must read - for everyone! A real, raw and riviting account of Ellie Wiesel's personal experience during the Holocaust. Starting when no one believed the pending danger of war... to the formation of ghettos and finally life in a concentration camp. His Nobel Peace Price Acceptance Speech at the end of the book is an important bonus! We must NEVER FORGET... Ellie's account will help.

Great trilogy of books in one volume. Deals with the traumatic experiences of someone that lived through the Nazi extermination camps and how it effected his life. I remember reading parts of Night in a history class in high school and wanted to read the whole trilogy to try and better understand what happened in that time in history.

If you are interested in learning about the Holocaust, non is better at writing about the times then Elie Wiesel. He lived through it and could tell the story better then others who have tried. I could hardly put it down other then to go to sleep and pick it up after breakfast on the weekend.

A must if you have interested in learning about those who lived through that period of human history.

This book should be required reading in schools. The lessons it teaches are so important as we must never forget the Holocaust and the persecution & murders that are going on in many countries even today. Dr. Wiesel gave the world a gift by telling his story in Night.

I love this decent human being, this good-hearted individual. I am not Jewish, not that you have to be to read and appreciate what he lived through and continues to deal with. They say there are no heroes left. I disagree. Because Elie Wiesel is not only a certified hero, but an exemplary writer.
Get his books, and tell others to read him.
The Holocaust deniers should be ashamed of themselves.

These book is actually a trilogy of 3 books by author Elie Wiesel. The first is his memoir, Night, and it was superb! A very honest and heartfelt memoir about the sufferings of this sensitive and insightful man and his family during the holocaust.

Dawn was a novel with some truth in it and was pretty good. Day was just too weird for me and way too wordy.
