Night

Night (The Night Trilogy, #1)Night by Elie Wiesel
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I enjoy reading about WWII - whether it's fiction or biography. This was a no different. A very well done translation, a moving true story.

Summary: Night is a work by Elie Wiesel about his experience with his father in the Nazi German concentration camps at Auschwitz and Buchenwald in 1944–1945, at the height of the Holocaust and toward the end of the Second World War. In just over 100 pages of sparse and fragmented narrative, Wiesel writes about the death of God and his own increasing disgust with humanity, reflected in the inversion of the father–child relationship as his father declines to a helpless state and Wiesel becomes his resentful teenage caregiver.
