Publisher's Summary

The Long Night is Ernst Israel Bornstein's first-hand account of what he witnessed in seven concentration camps. Written with remarkable insight and raw emotion, The Long Night paints a portrait of human psychology in the darkest of times. Bornstein tells the stories of those who did all they could do to withstand physical and psychological torture, starvation, and sickness, and openly describes those who were forced to inflict suffering on others. The narrative is simple, yet profound; unbridled, honest, and dignified. The Long Night is the extraordinary tale of Ernst Israel Bornstein's tortuous passage through a number of Nazi camps. What he endured reminds us that there were many different experiences of the camps and that there is no single Holocaust narrative. Most of the camps to which Dr Bornstein was sent remain little known today, yet they remind us of just how widespread, vast and destructive the brutal camp system was.

With introduction from former Prime Minister, David Cameron.

What the Critics Say

"Ernst Israel Bornstein had been 18 when his world collapsed; youthful adaptability self-possession and above all, luck, combined to preserve his husk in seven work camps which might have been modeled on the sequence of Dante's circles of hell." (The Times Literary Supplement)
"Both harrowing and inspirational, The Long Night is a chilling reminder of what can happen when we fail to challenge hatred and bigotry. It should be read by anyone who believes we still have lessons to learn from the Holocaust - and anyone who doesn't." (Rt Hon Sajid Javid MP)

    "First audio book- what an amazing story"
    Where does The Long Night rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is the first audio book I have listened to and it was really powerful to hear such an account as an audio book


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Not sure favourite is relevant for this book. Ernst as the author is direct and factual in his accounts of the horrors of the Holocaust and does not burden the listener with his feelings and emotions. This was a very refreshing approach to the subject matter.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    There were many times when I had to stop listening as I was overwhelmed with emotion. I cannot even begin to relate to what Ernst went through.


    Any additional comments?

    I found it a very pleasant listen and could really picture the events unfolding. The story is well balanced and objective in that there is some good within evil. I highly recommend this book and I learnt a lot from it
