Night by Elie Wiesel, the journey through a heartbreaking and scary story is important to anybody who wants to learn about the Holocaust.

Elie was living a normal life with his family until they were abducted from their home in 1944 and taken to a concentration camp. Elie shares what life was like inside one of the camps, and got out alive. He lives his life after the concentration camps in a state of fear as he watches in tears, his family disappearing one by one.

This book teaches what the Jewish people had to go through every day to stay alive and things they had to watch that pierced their brains. Memories that will never leave their minds play across the pages. This book was a great one to read because it taught a lot more things that many people didn’t know about the Holocaust. This story is told through major parts in Elie’s life. His life was hard and challenging but he still managed to hold on and get through even when he was at his very minimum. This was told with such detail that you feel like you were there. There is never a part of the book that is not filled with actions.

Elie had to draw a line from his old memories because they would make his eyes water up. He always thought about how he used to be free, and how different life was for him years ago. He always wanted to cry but he had no energy left in him. During this time he started to believe that God was not real. This place was making him lose faith, he did not know how much longer he could continue while living in such a terrifying place. Everybody there wanted to speak up to make this stop but if they did they would lose their lives.

Overall, this book is a great book waiting to be read by many more people. It makes you think about how much these people went through. There is never a moment in the book where their life was exciting, or happy. If you need to learn more about the Holocaust, or if you want a book with memories you should read Night by Elie Wiesel.
