Night By: Ellie Wiesel, Reviewed By: Lydell Lewis

Summary

Night is a historical text about being a Jew during WWII. Elie Wiesel tells this his story perfectly. Through all the hardships and torture he and his fellow Jews went through they came out strong. The number one thing Elie Wiesel thought was important was family and i'd think the same. Though he lost his sister and mother he had his father as a strength and weakness. A quote of his is "To forget the dead would be akin to killing them a second time."

Personal Review

I certainly love this book! Every time I picked it up i was excited to read what happened next. This book would be great for the one's who like to be enlightened and like to learn things outside of an American Point of view. My favorite things about this book is the honesty and bleakness Elie Wiesel has. Also the way he describes drastic events through out the story. This book is very interesting and bound to make you feel or imagine what they all went through. Read the book for Christ sake.

Long Live The Cheif

Direct quote from Night

“Never shall I forget that night, the first night in camp, which has turned my life into one long night, seven times cursed and seven times sealed....Never shall I forget those moments which murdered my God and my soul and turned my dreams to dust. Never shall I forget these things, even if I am condemned to live as long as God Himself. Never.”
