A New Translation From The French By Marion 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.

Night offers much more than a litany of the daily terrors, everyday perversions, and rampant sadism at Auschwitz and Buchenwald; it also eloquently addresses many of the philosophical as well as personal questions implicit in any serious consideration of what the Holocaust was, what it meant, and what its legacy is and will be.


  • Excellent read

    By Clarinet $wag Master
    This is an amazing book; it removes the abstraction of the holocaust and gives you a first hand recount of the atrocities of the concentration camps.

    I feel such shame with what humans do to one another. It’s so horrible that our Country did not step in to help the annihilation of the Jews sooner. We could have saved so many lives. There will always be war and the innocent will suffer.
  • Intense, heart wrenching

    By Robert W Rogers
    This is a great document for our day. A reminder of how dark the world can turn in such a short amount of time, and how much impact one man can make on the world, for bad or good. One of the few books that can actually make me sympathize with the writer and feel the scenes and emotions. Beautifully described. An important historical document for all ages to come. We must be aware of the tragedies endured by millions so that we might prevent this from happening again.
  • Must read

    By Elisa Estrada
    This is a really great book. Will leave you feeling a range of deep emotions throughout. It’s terrible that someone had to go through this, that so many people had to go through this. An incredible book by an incredible man.
