Critic Reviews

“This is Elie Wiesel at his best, a highly revealing self-portrait of the man behind the world-famed persona.” (Herman Woulk)

“A biblical-like epic of a great man who has turned genocidal tragedy into a life force for world peace. I should be required reading for membership in the human race.” (Alan M. Dershowitz)

“Immensely moving [and] unforgettable, [with] the searing intensity of his novels and autobiographical tales... Will make you cry, yet somehow leaves you renewed, with a cautious hope for humanity's future.” (Publishers Weekly)

“Wiesel remains unequaled at bringing home the experience of horrific, nullifying disorientation that was the first step in the program of genocide known as the Final Solution.” (Daphne Merkin, The New York Times Book Review)

Incredible Story

I had no idea how incredible his story was and everything he had to endure. Yet he persevered and always remembered what he had been through. This book gave me a different perspective of very similar stories told by others that have survived the holocaust era.

Moving. Beautiful. Heartbreaking and inspiring. What a treat to hear it read by Mr. Wiesel himself.
