Author: Elie Wiesel
Summary: A terrifying account of the Nazi death camp horror that turns a young Jewish boy into an agonized witness to the death of his family...the death of his innocence...and the death of his God. Penetrating and powerful, as personal as The Diary Of Anne Frank, Night awakens the shocking memory of evil at its absolute and carries with it the unforgettable message that this horror must never be allowed to happen again.
Review: Knowing that this actually happened to someone makes it more real and even though I read it for school, I really enjoyed it.
At the beginning they think that nothing bad will happen to them. They say to themselves that before anything bad happens it will all be over. But as some may know this isn't the case.
Elie starts as someone who is living with his parents.He realizes that things aren't good when they come and take them away from their homes. He goes through hard things that make him question some of the things he thought he knew.
I had heard and read about the holocaust but it's nothing like reading Night. This is the story of many of those who had to go through it. Reading about how they were treated made me think of how we as humans could have done things like that.
This was a really short book that held a lot of meaning inside. I think it's one of those books that will stay with you forever and make you remember of the things that have happened in the past, both good and bad.
