Night by Elie Wiesel Book Review

Night  Night by Elie Wiesel

Goodreads Summary:

Night 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.

My Thoughts:

Author wasn’t afraid of revealing his thoughts and feelings even when it made him seem harsh. An honestly written book about what he went through and how it changed him during those times! Very thought provoking. Makes the reader wonder how he/she would have reacted to those terrible atrocities.

Some powerful quotes from the book-

” ….I feel that books, just like people, have a destiny. Some invite sorrow, others joy, some both.”

“To forget would be not only dangerous but offensive;to forget the dead would be akin to killing them a second time.”

” He does not want his past to become their future.”
