Wiesel's "Night"

It was not quite what I had expected. It was a translation by his wife and it presented a more bland picture than it probably really was. Of course, that's a very difficult subject to write about as a first-person experience.

Powerful

Powerful book with straight forward telling of incomprehensible torture and pain. What the author and his father endured tears at the heart and touches fear in one's own self. A repeat of this terrible nightmare is not impossible and quite possible in today's world situation. I found myself holding my breath many times when author was speaking of his father. It was almost agony to find out if his father survives or not. Elise Wiesel is a writer in the purest sense...he wrote what he knew about and presented it in honest and forthright manner and touched a responsive cord in in my heart. A very important read for those who ponder what is in store for us as a world if we allow erosion of freedom.

Night Terrors

A short but powerful story. One can almost feel the exhaustion of the main character and his father as they are herded around like animals. Very tragic about his younger sister and mother since they were segregated from the males and never seen again.
A writing that reminds all of us that man vs. man is the worst possible scenario to witness through the retrospective writings of those that were there. A powerful prescriptive about how not to treat human beings.
