Night is Elie Wiesel’s masterpiece, a frank, horrifying and deeply moving autobiographical account of his teenage survival in the Nazi death camps. This new translation by Marion Wiesel, Elie’s wife and frequent translator, presents these seminal memories in the language and spirit closest to the author’s original intent. And in a substantive new prologue, Elie reflects on Night’s enduring importance and his passionate lifelong commitment to ensuring the world never forgets man’s capacity to be humanly inhuman.
The night offers much more than a litany of everyday horrors, everyday perversions and unbridled sadism in Auschwitz and Buchenwald; It also addresses many of the philosophical and personal issues that are involved in any serious consideration of what the Holocaust was, what it meant, and what its legacy is and will be.

NIGHT was one of the first widely read accounts of a Holocaust concentration camp survivor. It was originally over eight hundred pages long in Yiddish. Weisel worked with the material, rewrote and edited it, first in a 245-page version published in Argentina, then in a 170-page version published in France. NIGHT reached its final form with its one hundred and sixteen page publication in 1960 in English in the United States.
Wiesel asserts that every word of the play is true and describes the NIGHT as his “testimony of him.” Critics tend to believe that the basis of the work is fact, that Wiesel’s long and careful rewriting and editing transformed what would have been simple facts into a work of art open to a variety of interpretations. Be that as it may, the English publication was among the first widely read personal accounts of the Holocaust, and continues to attract readers and praise to this day.
The book is written in an unexpectedly practical tone and lacks any trace of self-pity. As such, it has a quality that is very difficult to define, one in which most human emotions seem to have been shaped by the experiences of the author. Elie Wiesel was born in 1928 in Sighet, a fairly large city claimed first by Romania and then by Hungary. Wiesel writes that he was a hard-working boy, deeply religious, and the son of respected people.
They had heard rumors about how the Germans treated the Jews, but the war seemed so far away and they couldn’t believe the stories, even when told by a well-known man in the Jewish community. The process was rather slow, as Jews were forced to wear the Star of David, this and that were banned, and eventually they were forced to live in two “ghettos” in the city. Then, in May 1944, the Sighet Jews were deported to Auschwitz.
Wiesel was then sixteen years old. He spent about a year in various camps before reaching Buchenwald, where he was liberated by the Allies in 1945. Seeing himself in a mirror for the first time since his imprisonment, he was horrified at the reflection, which appeared to be that of a corpse. living.
The book is abrupt and episodic in nature, but most of it focuses on Wiesel’s relationship with his father, Schlomo Wiesel, and how the two men successfully stayed together during their time in the camps and how the two men attempted to less successful befriending him. each other to take care of other things.
Although the NIGHT is full of terrors, the last one occurs when the grueling hell of the camp system causes Weasel to reject feelings for his father as an obstacle to his own survival. Wiesel is also asked to question God and whether God exists, and if so, how God can accept the systematic extermination of the Jews by the Nazis. As one person cynically comments on Wiesel in NIGHT, he believes in Hitler, because Hitler kept all the promises he made to the Jews.
There are moments of light scattered throughout the play – stars in the dark – a French woman who takes a risk cheering Wiesel on, a friend whose act of death is a gift of music – but for the most part NIGHT is indeed night, and there is no escape. Despite its brevity, it is painful to read, difficult to understand and, in the ordinary tone in which it is told, incredibly terrifying. The book is published with a foreword by Wiesel, a foreword by Francois Mauriac, and the text of Wiesel’s 1986 Nobel Peace Prize speech. Highly recommended.
