Night by Elie Wiesel
Night

lmjinwa, January 1, 2012

Although today in the 21st century we are bombarded daily with examples of man's inhumanity to man, and some people become jaded and numb about violence, bigotry, and avarice, we can't forget that true victory over these deadly squelchers of mankind is achieved by the very struggle to desperately, stubbornly, retain our individual humanity by refusing to remain victims, and by refusing to victimize in return. Wiesel's powerful chronicle of his imprisonment in Auschwitz , the Nazis' relentless, sadistic attempts to strip the personhood from millions of humans, and his own struggles to remain human while in Hell, is sad, informative, scary, but ultimately uplifting and, considering man's slow learning curve (genocides, greed, bigotry still abound globally), quite timely and thought-provoking.
