NIGHT: Eli Wiesel: Hill and Wang: Biography: 120 pgs.

This memoir recounts Eli Wiesels experiences as a young teenage boy during the Holocaust. It includes his time in a small ghetto in Hungary, his transportation to Auschwitz, his days in the Buna labor camp and the forced march to Buchenwald before it was liberated in April of 1945.

This is a book I had been meaning to read for a very long time but I found it hard to actually pick it up because I knew the subject matter would be difficult to get through. There were many heart-breaking scenes that brought the true horrors of the Holocaust to life. This is an important book that everyone should read.
