  1. There is little that freaks me out than the Holocaust And I m not belittling it at all with the phrase freaks me out Growing up in the 1970s and 80s, I felt sufficiently desensitized enough by television violence to be able to gauge how often I need to shake the jiffy pop and run to the bathroom before the program violence resumes.Elie Wiesel s Night brings me back to my senses, makes me hate the cold hearted bitch I ve learned to be And not by some overtly dramatic rendition of the horrors of [...]


  2. The author, who is actually in the above picture, said it best in the forward Only those who experienced Auschwitz know what it was I think we can all agree with that But can we, the reader, even understand what happened there Can modern men and women comprehend that cursed universe I m not entirely sure.I first read this in my eighth grade History class I was 13 It changed my life Before this book my world was sunshine and rainbows My biggest concern was whether or not a boy named Jason liked m [...]


  3. This book is a hard, righteous slap in the conscience to everyone of good will in the world and should stand as a stark reminder of both 1 the almost unimaginable brutality that we, as a species, are capable of and 2 that when it comes to preventing or stopping similar kinds of atrocities or punishing those that seek to perpetrate such crimes, WE ARE OUR BROTHERS KEEPERS and must take responsibility for what occurs on our watch This remarkable story is the powerful and deeply moving account of E [...]


  4. Upon completion of this book, my mind is as numb as if I had experienced this suffering myself So much pain and suffering are thrown at you from the pages that one cannot comprehend it all in the right perspective One can only move forward as the victims in this book did Step by step, page by page Initially, numbness is the only way to deal with such anguish Otherwise one becomes quickly overwhelmed by the images that evoke questions that cannot be answered And yet, I read this book from the com [...]


  5. The first time I read Night by Eli Wiesel I was in an eighth grade religious school class At that time it had recently become a law in my state to teach the Holocaust as part of the general curriculum, and, as a result, my classmates and I were the torchbearers to tell people to never forget and were inundated with quality Holocaust literature Yet even though middle school students can comprehend Night, the subject matter at times is still way over their heads The book itself although a prize wi [...]


  6. I was the accuser, God the accused My eyes had opened and I was alone, terribly alone in a world without God, without man Without love or mercy These words and this book just tore at my heart I have seen Night, have heard of Night for many years now I waited to read it, unsure what I could possibly gain from reading another account of the evil existing among our fellow human beings I will become enraged and depressed I can t change history I will be forced to examine my own faith and I don t wan [...]


  7. This book has garnered so many five star reviews and deals with such important subject matter that it almost feels like an act of heresy to give it a mere four stars Yet that is exactly what I m going to do, for while Night is a chilling account of the Holocaust and the dehumanisation and brutalisation of the human spirit under extreme circumstances, the fact remains that I ve read better ones Better written ones, and insightful ones, too.Night is Elie Wiesel s somewhat fictionalised account of [...]

  9. Terrifying I have read two books that described a nightmare, painted a picture of hell The second was Blood Meridian, or the Evening Redness in the West by Cormac McCarthy and first is Night I still think of this book sometimes and shudder and I realize that evil is never too far buried in us The scene where the line of doomed prisoners splits in two with Mengela conducting, a perverse parody of the last judgment seems ripped from Dante.


  10. I teach this book yearly, but my students seemed distant from the true reality of the story When I use the Holocaust Museum s interactive of Lola Rein s dress, it hits them Real people, real history The immediacy of the tragedy that was Wiesel s then comes to life in a way that a junior or senior can grasp I also tell the story of my friend, Ida, and her no grandparents That is the hardest part for me as it is so personal She was the daughter of survivors she had no grandparents and I gave her m [...]


  11. 5 starsI am at a loss for words.upon finishing this memoir, I am so full of intense emotion yet I feel empty at the same timeThis is a DEEPLY moving and powerful book about the author s experience in concentration camps and the atrocities that happened during the Holocaust Words cannot describe how I truly feel about what I read on these pages It is impossible for us, as readers, to truly fathom this piece of history, unless we lived it I hope everyone takes the time to read this 120 page memoir [...]


  12. Night is perhaps one of the most remarkable, harrowing and haunting accounts of the events in the Nazi Germany concentration camps Auschwitz and Buchenwald I read this powerful work only a few days before news of the author s, Elie Wiesel s, death were announced, and both shocked me The first, because unless you have experienced it for yourself, you will never be able to realize the full extent of what happened in the Second World War with all its different facets and emotions, and the latter, b [...]


  13. Night is Elie Wiesel s memoir about his experiences during the Holocaust It is shocking and sad, but worth reading because of the power of Wiesel s witnessing one of humanity s darkest chapters and his confession on how it changed him.In the new introduction to the ebook version I read, Wiesel talked about the difficulty he had putting words to his experience Convinced that this period in history would be judged one day, I knew that I must bear witness I also knew that, while I had many things t [...]


  14. I ve been meaning to read Night for years and finally picked it up shortly after hearing about Eli Wiesel s death Night is not a book that I can review It defies critique, and even analyzing it from my sunny porch with a cup of coffee, feels wrong Yet it s the reasons that Night belongs outside of criticism that make it so important There is the Holocaust and then there is the world s relationship with the Holocaust By the end of the 60s that relationship encompassed adult children of survivors, [...]


  15. A poignant and unforgettable 5 star read Human suffering anywhere concerns men and women everywhere Elie Wiesel, NightIt s been years since I ve read this book, but as my son needed to read it for school, I decided to read it with him I m glad I did Night, which is one man s tragic yet remarkable survival of the Holocaust, is a powerful, shocking, heartbreaking, poignant, yet triumph of the soul biography This book speaks to humanity about the atrocities man is capable of committing It also demo [...]

  17. From the first few sentences, to the final closings words, I did not move Elie Wiesel had my complete attention, and total respect, for the immense courage it must have taken to relive the horrors he went through in writing this book Harrowing and chilling but told with great compassion, his struggle for survival during the holocaust is almost too unbearable to contemplate But this has to be read, and everyone should do so, it makes all the mundane things in life seem far important After the la [...]


  18. This is not a review I am not worthy to review this book This is my third time reading Night, having read it as a requirement in both high school and college I picked it up at the library because it was upright on a shelf and I noticed it had a new preface by the author I have read that preface four times so far The PREFACE is that important, that thought provoking I am speechless I am awestruck by the tremendous person that Elie Wiesel is The story is a heartbreaking, terrifying account of unim [...]


  19. Wow this book.n t express the feelings during my reading of this, so enthralling, captivating but oh the horrors Unimaginable horrors Tore my heart out into a million pieces I regret not having read this earlier, this is a true account of Elie Wiesel as a young Jewish boy who has no foreseeable knowledge and understanding of what was around the corner when his family are forced to flee from their home in Romania, and the unknown horrors that awaited them Even though I ve read and have studied ma [...]


  20. Night, was possibly one of the worst books I ve ever read I was suprised when I logged on to find, Five star reviews of this book Yeah, so it was written by a holocaust survivor It doesn t make it well written From a literary standpoing, purely It was terrible As Ms Hawley would say, It lacked sentence variation Maybe it was better when it was written in German Maybe he should have let a professional writer, write it for him I m not bashing him, or his writing Kind of His writing not him Too me [...]


  21. July 2, 2016 On hearing of the passing of Elie Wiesel, President Obama, who visited the site of the Buchenwald concentration camp with Wiesel in 2009, said He raised his voice, not just against anti Semitism, but against hatred, bigotry and intolerance in all its forms He implored each of us, as nations and as human beings, to do the same, to see ourselves in each other and to make real that pledge of never again I first read this book about 40 years ago and it has stayed with me ever since When [...]


  22. If Anne Frank was 13 when Germans came to Netherlands, Elie Wiessel was 15 when the same thing happened in Romania Two teenage children who saw the atrocities of the German armies who were blinded by their loyalty to Hitler There were a few differences Anne Frank died in the concentration camp while Elie Wiessel survived Anne Frank s diary, first published as The Diary of a Young Girl in 1950, was written in young girl s language while she was on a hiding while Night by Elie Wiesel tells the exp [...]


  23. I read this book once beforebut read it again yesterday with the new preface by his wife Marion Wiesel I did not plan on reading the whole thing I just wanted to read the new Preface but then while sitting around with sick people in the house I just dived into the horror again with expanded thoughts than in years pass.


  24. Difficult to review Night is a brutal first hand account of life in Auschwitz We re all very familiar with the visuals of the journey in the cattle truck, the arrival in Auschwitz, the squalor and deprivations of life in the barracks, the selections Wiesel tells us with simple but supremely eloquent prose what effect these daily horrors had on the human soul Tells us, in effect, how low we can go, how even a son can kill his own father for a morsel of bread if subjected to inhumane treatment for [...]


  25. I had put off reading this story for a variety of reasons, main among them that I knew what I would be facing, and was eager to find an excuse not to After having been to the Dachau Concentration Camp in Germany, the images of the now dead ovens still linger somewhere in the recesses of my mind, and to back to it, to read from someone who went through it, was not something I readily wanted to do But I did I gathered myself up and read through in a couple of days, the end of the book taking me by [...]


  26. In 1944, at the age of fifteen, Elie Wiesel, his parents and three sisters, were transported from Sighet to the Auschwitz concentration camp in Poland Upon arriving they were ordered, men to the left, women to the right Elie would never see his mother and younger sister Sarah again What followed was two years of living hell, two years of night What it was like in a concentration camp, what it was like for Elie and his father, can not be put into words that would be adequate to describe the reali [...]


  27. Even though I have read many other books about the Holocaust, none of them have left me feeling quite so haunted as Night It s a book that everyone should read Based on author Elie Wiesel s experiences, the narrator is an observant Jewish fifteen year old in the Hungarian village of Sighet His family and other Jews were sent to live in the ghetto by the Nazis Then they were loaded onto cattle cars and traveled for days without food to Birkenau Eliezer and his father were sent to Auschwitz while [...]


  28. I had trouble discerning whether this book was actually incredibly well written, or just horrifyingly honest enough to shock you into awe What I have pulled from it is less the prose, and the images burned in my brain from the chilling facts that they express Having read The Lost, I was at least somewhat prepared for the places Wiesel was to take me, and the terror contained within this short volume is actually minor compared to the extensive atrocities researched and transcribed by Mendelsohn [...]
