Book - 2009
Rate this:
Elie Wiesel witnessed the horrors of genocide firsthand when he and his family were sent to Auschwitz concentration camp and later to Buchenwald. Some critics characterize his book, which he published a little over a decade after the war's ending, as memoir. Weisel refers to Night as a deposition, one that constantly questions why genocide happened and what it reveals about human nature. This compelling volume interrogates these questions by introducing readers to a wide range of essays that explore themes about and surrounding genocide as they relate to Wiesel's work. The book also provides contemporary perspectives on genocide.
