Night by Elie Wiesel

This book is a look at one man’s survival of a Nazi concentration camp. It’s a very small book with a very big story. This is a heart wrenching tale that should be read by everyone. The depravity of man is real, as shown by the atrocities of the Nazi’s. It is something we must never forget.

First line, “They called him MOshe the Beadle, as though he had never had a surname in his life.”

Last line, “The look in his eyes, as they stared into mine, has never left me.”

  1. Elie Wiesel's Night is a very intriguing memoir that includes mystery, questioning, and suspense. I really enjoyed reading this book. The suspense kept adding up, to make it almost impossible stop. Every time I said to myself "After this page I have to go to sleep," a page later I'd continue on. The reason why I chose to read Night in the first place was because I visited the Holocaust Museum in Washington D.C. this past summer. Once I read the back cover of Night, it instantly reminded me of The Holocaust Museum. Some other books I was on the verge of choosing were interesting also, but my trip to Washington D.C. inspired me to read Night. Now that I've read it, I know I made the right choice.


Let me know what you're thinking!!
