Elie Wiesel's harrowing first-hand account of the atrocities
committed during the Holocaust, Night is translated by Marion
Wiesel with a preface by Elie Wiesel in Penguin Modern Classics.
Born into a Jewish ghetto in Hungary, as a child, Elie Wiesel was
sent to the Nazi concentration camps at Auschwitz and Buchenwald.
This is his account of that atrocity: the ever-increasing horrors
he endured, the loss of his family and his struggle to survive in a
world that stripped him of humanity, dignity and faith. Describing
in simple terms the tragic murder of a people from a survivor's
perspective, Night is among the most personal, intimate and
poignant of all accounts of the Holocaust. A compelling
consideration of the darkest side of human nature and the enduring
power of hope, it remains one of the most important works of the
twentieth century. Elie Wiesel (b. 1928) was fifteen years old when
he and his family were deported by the Nazis to Auschwitz. After
the war, Wiesel studied in Paris and later became a journalist.
During an interview with the distinguished French writer, Francois
Mauriac, he was persuaded to write about his experiences in the
death camps. The result was his internationally acclaimed memoir,
La Nuit or Night, which has since been translated into more than
thirty languages. If you enjoyed Night, you might also like Primo

Classics. 'A slim volume of terrifying power' The New York Times

record' Alfred Kazin 'Wiesel has taken his own anguish and
imaginatively metamorphosed it into art' Curt Leviant, Saturday
