A candid, horrific, and deeply poignant autobiographical account of 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 our capacity for inhumanity. More than a litany of the daily terrors, everyday perversions, and rampant sadism at Auschwitz and Buchenwald, this memoir 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.
