The memoir, Night, by Elie Wiesel, is deserving of reading. Night is based on Elie’s experience of being in a concentration camp as a Jew. Because of what Elie witnesses and experiences, he starts to question his own faith. Elie, unfortunately, had to change because of what he was experiencing.
This book not only gives us more information about the Holocaust and the horrors Jews had to face, but also shares a powerful message.
Without a doubt, this book is worthy of reading! In his memoir, Elie Wiesel shares his journey about being in a concentration camp and furthers our knowledge about everything that was going on in the 1940s. In the 1940s, Jews had to adapt to a new lifestyle as the Nazi leaders were prohibiting Jews’ freedom and rights. Most Jews could no longer feel accepted by society due to segregation.
This book should be read by every middle/high school student. Although some parts of the book are sad, this book educates the readers about all the prejudices that was happening during the 1940s.
