“Never shall I forget that night, the first night in the camp, which has turned my life into one long night, seven times cursed and seven times sealed. Never shall I forget that smoke. Never shall I forget the little faces of the children, whose bodies I saw turned into wreaths of smoke beneath a silent blue sky. Never shall I forget those flames which consumed my faith forever…Never shall I forget these things, even if I am condemned to live as long as God Himself. Never.”
Night by Elie Wiesel is a terrifying account of the Nazi death camp horror that turns a young Jewish boy into an agonised witness to the death of his family, of his innocence, and of his God.
