A chilling and sad, but true story of one man's experiences as a Jewish teenager in the German concentration camps. He writes of his family's long and, for some, fatal journey during this time. Wiesel writes in a beautifully clear, descriptive tone that leaves you feeling a bit of the despair, agony, guilt, and sometimes, relief that he must have felt. A "must" read, in my opinion, along with Viktor Frankl's "Man's Search for Meaning."

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.

A profound book on the plight of a Jewish boy during WW 2. Very vivid and well written. One of the best descriptions of day to day activities in an Nazi prision camp.

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!

I was surprised at how short the book is - only 144 pages, and it seems a lot less than that. This is an excellent new translation and I highly recommend it.
