Night, Elie Wiesel

Hi everyone,

I have just finished reading "Night" by Elie Wiesel. I would like to share some thoughts that have been transpired. I am heartened by the sheer fact that this book was written in the first place, he had so succintly said in his introduction, that "those who kept silent yesterday will remain silent tomorrow.". For such atrocites in the violation of the meaning and sancity of life, no silence is justifiable. I believe this book will be extremely touching to all, and in fact, I wished that his translator allowed for more of the emotional aspects of the text to be translated. However, too much of tugging of the heart string will be superfluous and the educational aspect, where we are taught that the discrimination and the violation of sancity of life is sacrilegious and cannot be condone, will be lost.

I hope you will enjoy the read as thoroughly as I had.
