Product Description

Elie Wiesel is the internationally celebrated author, Nobel laureate, and a spokesperson for humanity whose decision to dedicate his life to bearing witness for the Holocaust's martyrs and survivors found its earliest and most enduring voice in Night, his penetrating and profound account of the Nazi death camps. Born in the town of Sighet, Transylvania, he was a teenager when he and his family were taken from their home in 1944 to Auschwitz concentration camp and then to Buchenwalkd. This is the terrifying record of Elie Wiesel's memories of the death of his family, the death of his own innocence and his despair as a deeply observant Jew confronting the absolute evil of man.

Publisher's Description

A New Translation From The French By Marion Wiesel

Night is Elie Wiesel's masterpiece, a candid, horrific, and deeply poignant autobiographical account of his survival as a teenager in the Nazi death camps. This new translation by Marion Wiesel, Elie's wife and frequent translator, presents this seminal memoir in the language and spirit truest to the author's original intent. And in a substantive new preface, Elie reflects on the enduring importance of Night and his lifelong, passionate dedication to ensuring that the world never forgets man's capacity for inhumanity to man.

Night offers much more than a litany of the daily terrors, everyday perversions, and rampant sadism at Auschwitz and Buchenwald; it also eloquently addresses many of the philosophical as well as personal questions implicit in any serious consideration of what the Holocaust was, what it meant, and what its legacy is and will be.

Editorial Reviews

A slim volume of terrifying power.
Required reading for all of humanity.
Wiesel has taken his own anguish and imaginatively metamorphosed it into art.
To the best of my knowledge no one has left behind him so moving a record.
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.
As a human document, Night is almost unbearably painful, and certainly beyond criticism.
