Night offers a lot more than a litany of the daily terrors, on a regular basis perversions, and rampant sadism at Auschwitz and Buchenwald; it also eloquently addresses the various philosophical in addition to personal questions implicit in any serious consideration of what the Holocaust was once, what it meant, and what its legacy is and will be.
In Nobel laureate Elie Wiesel’s memoir Night, a scholarly, pious teenager is wracked with guilt at having survived the horror of the Holocaust and the genocidal campaign that consumed his family. His memories of the nightmare world of the death camps present him with an intolerable question: how can the God he once so fervently believed in have allowed these monstrous events to occur? There are no easy answers in this harrowing book, which probes life’s essential riddles with the lucid anguish only great literature achieves. It marks the an important first step in Wiesel’s lifelong project to bear witness for many who died.
