Book Title: Night

Author: Elie Wiesel

Book Description:

I had the opportunity to met Eli Wiesel many years ago with my wife Shira and our eldest son, Joshua. It was an incredible moment to meet a man who survived the holocaust, an event in the lives of the Jewish people that can never be forgotten. Through the eyes of this survivor, Night details not only the horrors of man's inhumanity to man, but the incredible strength and resolve of the human spirit in its struggle to survive. The telling of this story to future generations galvanizes not only the people but a nation. Night serves to reinforce the fact that we can never forget the past and that as humans, living together in this world we need to respect the value of each and every life; to appreciate not only our similarities but perhaps more importantly our differences.
