From Nicole Marsh
author: Wiesel, Elie
Night, written by Elie Wiesel is an autobiographical account of his life during the Holocaust. The novel is a short read with easy to understand wording. Wiesel gives a very vivid account of the heinous and unimaginable acts of cruelty committed by the Nazi’s. It shows the dehumanization of a population and how easy it is to lose faith and to question God. It made me feel physically sick when I read about the beatings, crematorium, Dr. Mengele’s medical practices, hangings, Death March and hunger.
Every person should read this novel as it is an important lesson to be learned….”we shall never forget.” It is a lesson to future generations that we must be respectful and tolerant of all mankind and these events shall never occur again.
