by Elie Wiesel

Night tells the story of Holocaust survivor, Elie Wiesel and what it was like for him and his family to live being isolated from the rest of the world with the Jewish community. Wiesel remembers when he lost his family to the immoral act of genocide and the fears that he had while losing the will to live.

Night is an interesting book because it's one of those books that can shake you emotionally by presenting the life of a Jewish person in the face of intolerance. This story is told all from Wiesel's perspective which shows us what it was like growing up with loved ones being killed and discriminated against during this time of genocide.

Yes, I would recommend this book to others because this story has a theme of how it is important to stand up to injustices even in the face of danger. Informing more people about making a change in the world is needed to create a civilized society. Young and old people should read this book so history can be remembered by all.
