Awarded the Nobel Peace Prize and the Congressional Gold Medal, Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel offers an unforgettable account of Hitler's horrific reign of terror in Night. This definitive edition features a new translation from the original French by Wiesel's wife and frequent translator, Marion Wiesel.
An enduring classic of the Holocaust literature, Night offers a personal and unforgettable account of the appaling horrors of Hitler's reign of terror. Through the eyes of 14-year-old Eliezer we behold the tragic fate of the Jews from the little town of Sighet. Even as they are stuffed into cable cars bound for Auschwitz, the townspeople refuse to believe rumors of Anti-Semitic atrocities. Not until they are marched down the blazing crematory at the camps 'reception center' does the terrible truth sink in. Narrator George Guidall intensifies the emotional impact as blind hope turns to utterhorror. His performance captures the profound agony of young Eliezer as he witnesses the suffering and death of his family and loses all that he holds sacred. Unabridged. Narrated by George Guidall. 4 CDs. 4 hours. Translation by Marion Wiesel.
