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.

Every year since about 6th or 7th grade, my teachers made me read a book on the Holocast. I hated them for that, I hated reading about the Holocaust. It was morbid, barbaric, terrifying, and tragic. To this day I still detest reading about the Holocaust, but my 10th grade teacher had us read Night, and it widened my view a bit more and I wasn't as narrow minded. Though I knew this I realized all the more how much the victims probably hated talking about it, hated reading about it and over all hated experiencing it. Probably one of the best books about the Holocaust I've ever read.

Imagine your family killed, dying, and taken away from you. Imagine yourself and your whole ethnic group being prosecuted for believing in what you believe. Imagine losing everything you have, your hope, pride, innocence, and maybe even your life. Elie Wiesel didn't have to imagine this because it was reality when his family and him were forced to leave everything behind and go to a concentration camp. This concentration camp was named Auschwitz and then they were moved to Buchenwald. Both there camps treated the Jews very poorly with little rations of food, harsh conditions, hard work and poor health. In this book, Elie Wiesel describes his confrontation with the Nazis, and their sinister behaviors of capturing Jews. Elie Wiesel was a young fourteen year old boy that had not that much knowledge to survive these terrible conditions when his family and him were forced to leave. Night is the amazing but terrifying record of Elie Wiesel's memories of the death of his family, the death of his innocence, and his sad as a an observant Jew confronts the absolute evil of man. What Wiesel wants to tell us is his unforgettable message that the horror in the Holocaust must never be allowed to happen again. I would recommend this book to the Middle School and higher level readers. This book describes much horror that is very frightening to me sometimes. This is a must read!

This is a true and moving story of the horrors of the Holocaust. I believe that reading about tragedies can help us prevent history from repeating itself. Told from the perspective of a young man in the Holocaust, our privileged minds are not able to imagine the horrors these victims endured. This book is must-read classic for any student older than elementary school. Even if you are not a fan of grisly historical books, I would recommend you read this. You can't fully understand history until you see it through the eyes of someone who was there.

Night is the best book I have ever read. It is a story of Elie Wiesel's life in a concentration camp in Nazi Germany, because he is Jewish. This book made me sad and it made me laugh. You have to be pretty mature to read this book, because there is not a lot of cussing but parts where if you are not mature you would not be able to keep reading. If you are 12 or 13 up to any age this is a good book for you. I think everyone should read this book.

"Review" by , "A slim volume of terrifying power."
"Review" by , "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?"
"Review" by , "Wiesel has taken his own anguish and imaginatively metamorphosed it into art."
"Review" by , "The book that always makes me weep is 'Night' by Elie Wiesel, because it brings up emotions of sorrow, horror and anger. And the book that unfailingly cheers me up is also 'Night' by Elie Wiesel, because it shows me that there is never an excuse for not trying to overcome evil, and that there is no situation from which we cannot emerge with a determination to be productive."
"Review" by , "To the best of my knowledge no one has left behind him so moving a record." Alfred Kazin
"Review" by , "As a human document, 'Night' is almost unbearably painful, and certainly beyond criticism."
"Review" by , "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."
