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.

A haunting book that will transform your idea of the Holocaust and show you the strength of human willpower and backbone. Elie Wiesel captures his traumatic experience in the concentration camps during the Nazi regime in such a way you can't forget it. I had to read this for school, and to this day it remains one of the only books I'll reread. A must-read for any bookreader. - Jaidyn (QBD)
