Summary

Night by Elie Wiesel is a literary masterpiece and a candid, horrific and deeply poignant autobiographical account of Wiesel's survival as a teenager in the Nazi death camps. In this new 2006 translation by Elie's Wife, Marion Wiesel, 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. As Marion was frequently Wiesel's translator, she was able to capture this memoir in the language and spirit truest to her husband s original intent.

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.
