Elie's memoir of discrediting warnings, living in Auschwitz when man has nothing to live for, and being rescued as a lifeless, hungry being stripped of humanity's intrinsic reaction of revenge is short and somber. Worth the read/listen for everyone to understand the atrocities that humans are capable of.
This was a powerful story that shook me yo my core. I clung to every word waiting for more news of yet another senseless death. Hard to believe this happen not so long ago. I'm amazed at how soon we forget.
Nothing extra here . Quite simply spoken : Rather matter of fact. As per Kurtz, simply the "Horror".
To comprehend unscaled horror from a child's viewpoint brings tears and sorrow to my body and soul. No man, woman or child should have to see such suffering. I admire your father greatly for suffering so much for you. Surely he longed for his wife but knew his young son still needed guidance. He did endure to the end for you. There are many on this earth who do not have even that in their young lives. Your story stays we me now forever.
I recommend the book, and it is an easy to listen to book - but the subject is not easy. The pictures painted are very graphic and unsettling. It makes me ask what I might be overlooking now with all the genocide in the world.
He has a nice voice.
I will read this book again .
So hauntingly honest , thank god for Wiesel documenting this horrific story .
His Nobel peace prize speech really rings home some truths of today .
Did we learn nothing ?
Unforgettable story by an incredible person. the details, depth, and descriptive wording leaves you as a reader with meaning, feeling and thoughts which are behind comprehension. it is a must reading book for every person living in today free world.
