The Exploring My Books TOPIC THIS WEEK IS
I don’t personally identify with any organized religion, but that does not mean that I am against organized religion. I like to have a holistic view of the world and have an understanding of the major world religions. I believe this promotes tolerance and empathy for all human beings. The book I have chosen for this topic is Night by Elie Wiesel. This is a heartbreaking account of a Jewish man’s struggle through a work camp during world war two. Unfortunately, my copy is on loan this week, so I can’t supply my own picture. I definitely recommend this book to all, just be prepared to face a lot of emotions.
Night BY Elie Wiesel
“Night is Elie Wiesel’s masterpiece, a candid, horrific, and deeply poignant autobiographical account of his survival as a teenager in the Nazi death camps. This new translation by Marion Wiesel, Elie’s wife and frequent translator, presents this seminal memoir in the language and spirit truest to the author’s original intent. And in a substantive new preface, Elie reflects on the enduring importance of Night and his lifelong, passionate dedication to ensuring that the world never forgets man’s capacity for inhumanity to man.”
