Elie Wiesel is able to ravish your heart and mind and to bring them to the dark world of incomprehensible. He is able to give a shape to the unspeakable, as much as it is possible to define the darkness that envelopes one of the most horrible chapter of human kind history.
I’m glad this book is read in many high schools in the US. Reading it, trying to understand it, commenting it, learning the precious lessons it teaches is our contribution to the defeat of the Night, our contribution to not killing a second time the victims of the Shoa. Whoever forget, whoever doesn’t want to remember, to teach to the next generation this incomprehensible horrible chapter of our history, become an ally of the darkness.
This book is not only a precious witness; it is also a deep and touching story of a young boy who suddenly found himself abandoned by his certainties, his faith, his G-d.
I read this book many times (this is actually the first time I listen to it) and every time it deeply shakes me and let me learn something new and more profound.
