A true tale of the Nazi concetration camps by one who has lived through it. A potent reminder of the horror of Nazi Germany. It made me cry, but then stories like these make most people cry. So read it not so much for enjoyment, but so that we never forget.
This is one of my all-time favorite and most influential books, which I read for the first time in 1969. As the daughter of a holocaust survivor, I was deeply effected by it. One can only marvel at the incredible and beautiful human being that Elie Wiesel has become. Everyone should read this...
even though the book is short (just over 100 pages) it took me quite awhile to read. Such a horrifying account of the suffering, loss and survival of holocaust victims. It made a huge impression on me, one that will take a long while to completely process!
This is a good book about the holocaust from a survivor. Chilling and depressing. Unbelievable what they were put through and had to do and see.
Must read! I read this book in one sitting and it gripped my attention from the first page to the last. The author writes with raw honesty. A beautifully sad story.
