Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

"The seminal story of a child the Germans intended to murder, more to the point than the partial narrative of 'The Diary of Anne Frank' since it describes the place of Anne Frank's doom." Cynthia Ozick, New York Times Book Review

Review:

"What I maintain is that this personal record, coming after so many others and describing an outrage about which we might imagine we already know all that it is possible to know, is nevertheless different, distinct, unique....Have we ever thought about the consequence of a horror that, though less apparent, less striking than the other outrages, is yet the worst of all to those of us who have faith: the death of God in the soul of a child who suddenly discovers absolute evil?" Francios Mauriac

Review:

"A slim volume of terrifying power." New York Times

I highly recommend this book to everyone, especially those who love history.I actually cried when i read this book, it's so sad to actually read what happened to someone during these horrible times, its sad to read about people being strong and loosing hope. It is a great holocaust book and easy to read.
