Night | Elie Wiesel
A New Translation From The French By Marion WieselNight is Elie Wiesel's masterpiece, a candid, horrific, and deeply poignant autobiographical account of his survival as a teenager in the Nazi death camps. This new translation by Marion Wiesel, Elie's wife and frequent translator, presents this seminal memoir in the language and spirit truest to the author's original intent. And in a substantive new preface, Elie reflects on the enduring importance of Night and his lifelong, passionate dedication to ensuring that the world never forgets man's capacity for inhumanity to man.Night offers much more than a litany of the daily terrors, everyday perversions, and rampant sadism at Auschwitz and Buchenwald; it also eloquently addresses many of the philosophical as well as personal questions implicit in any serious consideration of what the Holocaust was, what it meant, and what its legacy is and will be.

Here is a list of memoirs. (Technically dawn and day aren't memoirs but I added them as they are part of a trilogy). Part 1

@TheBookAddict

Riveted_Reader_Melissa I highly recommend Night, Day, and Dawn...but I think only Night is really a memoir. 1mo
Insightsintobooks @Riveted_Reader_Melissa I put them all because they were part of the trilogy. 1mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Insightsintobooks That‘s fine, I completely agree they should go together, I just wanted to warn people who were picking up things for the #NFNov readings. 1mo

You will definitely like this book if you like war stories and stories about people‘s hardships. The flow of the story was hard at times but once it was better again the story was really amazing!

Somehow I never read this one. I now did. In one breath. To imagine that what Wiesel went through happened here, in Europe, just 75 years ago! It‘s incredible and good to always be reminded of. This can never happen again and yet, when I read the news and realize that I know just a fraction of what is happening right now in Syria, in Central Africa, in Haiti, to name just a few. It‘s incomprehensible what people are able to do to one another 💔

Kalalalatja It truly is heartbreaking 💔 2mo
Chrissyreadit Yes- good perspective- I feel like we are standing by while genocide has happened in this century already- Syria and Rohyngia to begin with. 2mo
Amiable Elie Wiesel was a professor at my university when I was in college. He was equally as impressive a speaker as he was a writer. He would be speaking loudly and forcefully about what it going on in Syria today. 2mo

Aaandd that‘s a wrap for #Booked2019 #Spring, let‘s never leave a season so late again 😂

Not a “light” season but a completed one. Ness (#CliFi ) was the weirdest by far, Metal (#FeaturesaMusician ) the most intellectually interesting. Mai Tai (#FoodorBeverageonCover) was the weakest. Talking to my Country (#IndigenousAuthor) dovetailed into I am a Troll (#SocialMediaFocus) and both, terrifyingly seemed to run into Night (#NightOrientedTitle).

Some levity (she would *not* be moved 🤦🏻‍♀️).

For all my study, I had not read this. The notion terrified me but, somehow, Night is eminently readable. It‘s horrific but particularly noting the foreword, finishing it feels like an act of rebellion against that evil and a tribute to all those lost to it.

At our war memorials, Australia‘s epithet is “Lest we forget”. I think it‘s appropriate here, too.

The paragraph when I finally lost it.

In another lifetime, I was a History major. A lifetime before that, I was a contrarian teenager at a Catholic high school who chose Raoul Wallenberg as a character study (to the actual delight of the far-more-contrarian-than-me Nun teaching while waiting for her visa to go back to running an orphanage in Ghana).

The history and the horror aren‘t new to me but this...?

What must Wiesel think of us now? 💔

I needed a #Nightorientedtitle for #Booked2019 which were surprisingly light on my shelves (I‘m trying to read from books I already own). Somehow after Talking to My Country and I am a Troll, Elie Wiesel‘s Night wanted to be read.

Not sure about the segue from a Hawaiian based cozy mystery to a Nobel Peace Prize winner‘s “determination that humanity learn from his experience in the death camps” but here goes.

This is one of those books that everyone should read, but that leaves me without much to say. What can be said? I think Wiesel does an excellent job of describing how shocking something like the Holocaust is—as he pointed out, the idea that something like that could happen in the 20th century is unfathomable. How did German citizens not notice the absolute torment? It‘s something we absolutely must never forget. #booked2019

I don‘t really have much to say in this review. What could I say? The book is hauntingly powerful. The impact of the truth contained in this novel is one I will never forget. Elie Wiesel tells a story that will knock the wind right out of you. Or, at least, it should. If it doesn‘t, please examine your heart. He recognizes the need to share this truth. You must recognize the need to learn from it. Few books are more important than this one.

This was short and tough. Wiesel‘s writing is brutal and honest—there are no attempts to find beauty or alleviate the suffering from these camps. The transcript of his Nobel Prize acceptance speech was the perfect closing: “We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.” ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #booked2019 #nightorientedtitle

Night by Eli‘s Wiessel is a great nonfiction book about life in a concentration camp during World War II. In eighth grade I read this book and fell in love with it‘s heart wrenching story. The author depicts his own life in the concentration camp with his father, using some of his own stories and some of others, written in a beautiful story. It will definitely pull at your heartstrings.

Haleysantucci I would love to have my students do an author study for this book since the author lived through the concentration camps in World War II. UDL principles I would use would be 9.2 because of the graphic details that are given in the story and also 2.5 because I would want them to utilize the Internet when researching the author. 8mo
Haleysantucci I would use ESOL strategy number 28 by giving biographies on Hitler, Stalin and other significant figures during this time in history. 8mo
Haleysantucci http://www.readwritethink.org/classroom-resources/lesson-plans/using-student-cen.... This is a great lesson plan for teachers to use by having kids get in small groups and work on summarizing, questions, predicting and clarifying. #LAE3414sp19 8mo
caldwellalex95 @Haleysantucci I read this story when I was in middle school, and it was an amazing experience. Stories like these are so fascinating, and I become enthralled with survivors' experiences of the Holocaust. I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone. Also, I love the lesson plan you chose; students working in groups is a great tool for discussion! Thank you for sharing your thoughts on this incredibly novel! 8mo

Night by Elie Wiesel is heart-breaking and eye-opening NF novel about a teenager who survived the Auschwitz and Buchenwald concentration camps. His memories are retold in this book, and it is truly remarkable. I think this book would be best used in the classroom as a PR. The intense nature of this book is probably best read in partners so that the students can give each other support if needed. #LAE3414sp19

gnewman Thus, this book encompasses UDL Principles 2.4: Promote understanding across languages, 9.2: Facilitate personal coping skills and strategies, and 2.3: Support decoding of text, mathematical notation, and symbols. As for ESOL Strategies, the students will benefit from 23: Structure advanced organizers consisting of new terminology that learners will encounter in the new lesson vocabulary to be reviewed. 9mo
gnewman www.glencoe.com/sec/literature/litlibrary/pdf/night.pdf has many written response questions and graphic organizers for the students to fill out as they read. I think this is a wonderful resource for this novel. 9mo
DrSpalding This is definitely not an elementary school read. However, Dr. Kelley just cited this as one of her very favorite books of all time. Excellent choice and excellent job aligning your English learner strategies and universal design principles. 9mo

A small book with a big punch. Elie Wiesel tells his story from his childhood village to the camps at Auschwitz and on to Buchenwald. It‘s simply told, without sentimentality, and is all the more devastating for it.

One of the (many) things that struck me was the disbelief that this could be happening in the middle of twentieth century, a stark warning against the ‘it couldn‘t happen here‘ way of thinking.

"I feel that books, just like people, have a destiny. Some invite sorrow, others joy, some both." And this record of a man's memories in an Auschwitz concentration camp, reminds me to never be so cynical that I forget to care or forget at all. Hope goes a long way. And when you pick this book, open your eyes, you might see the ghosts of the past still live amongst. And then open your heart, listen, for action.

We believed in God, trusted in man, and lived with the illusion that every one of us has been entrusted with a sacred spark from the Shekhinah's flame; that every one of us carries in his eyes and in his soul a reflection of God's image. That was the source if not the cause of all our ordeals."

Read this book in 2 days as it was very hard to stop reading. The books talks about the life for a Jewish family in the 1940. Talks about how this family never imagine something so bad could happen. At the beginning he talks about a man that said the germans had cought him and others and made them dig their own graves and shot them. He escape and no one believed him. So sad a young man lost everything

It seems like a good day to create some book spine poetry.

Night
Little fires everywhere
Wildly into the dark
All the light we cannot see
The undressing
The blue songbird
The sun and her flowers

Night | Elie Wiesel
post image

Elie Wiesel is one of my favorites. This book lives in a prominent place on my bookshelf. Every once jn a while, I take it down to re-read certain sections. I did so again tonight.

As a reader, I do not support banning books, no matter how heinous they may be. But I also believe that reading controversial, propaganda based books should be done with sensitivity and empathy towards the marginalized communities targeted by the hate speech. ⬇️⬇️⬇️

4thhouseontheleft I do not think the intent behind reading Mein Kampf as a “buddy read” on Litsy is being done maliciously. I do hope that all participants engage in the discussion in a serious, empathetic way that is sensitive to the fact that the book is still used by white supremacists to spread hate and terror. 11mo
Crazeedi I love Wiesel, his belief in life is an inspiration 11mo
4thhouseontheleft @Crazeedi I still mourn his passing. 😞 11mo

Kaye I agree ,people should be allowed to read anything. I think it‘s the thought of a buddy read that makes it sound like it‘s for fun.That may not be the intent, but that‘s how it comes across. And just my 2 cents on the white supremacists : I‘ve never met one and hope I never do, but they don‘t really come across like they have 2 brain cells to rub together so I can‘t picture them reading a book more challenging than a Jughead Comic book. 11mo
4thhouseontheleft @Kaye I agree. But hate groups do use Mein Kampf as part of their propaganda literature. My point was it is not just delegated to past history, there are still people and groups that follow and believe in the hate speech contained within. 11mo
Weaponxgirl Thanks for sharing the quote, it‘s heartbreaking 11mo
TheReadingMermaid Thank you for reaching out to me sweetie 🤗 I can assure you that any and all discussions that take place on this book will be done in a manner befitting the book's content. 11mo
SleepyDragon I am not participating in the group read, however, anyone who read the posts past the pic would have understood that the goal was educational, not pleasure. Unfortunately, the term for group reads on this platform is the needlessly whimsical "buddy read," and @TheReadingMermaid did not coin it yet used the proper term this platform uses for the activity of reading a book together and discussing it online. 11mo
4thhouseontheleft @nessybeth I read everything in the original post before it was deleted. I also was one of the individuals who offered some suggestions that @TheReadingMermaid listened to as she made some changes. I‘m not going any further with this. ⬇️⬇️ (edited) 11mo
4thhouseontheleft And while I don‘t agree with book banning, I fully support the Litten who posted a rebuttal to voice her opinion. Just as I support Tamara‘s right to read this book. I think it could have been handled more sensitively at the beginning, and @TheReadingMermaid addressed those concerns and made changes. 11mo
Cinfhen Elie Wiesel will forever be my definition of a “Nobel” individual ~ he embodied the spirit of generosity, peace, forgiveness and hope. I mourn his passing. 💔 11mo
4thhouseontheleft @Cinfhen Yes!! And Malala Yousafzai seems to be cut from the same character mold. 💙💙💙 11mo
Cinfhen She does, indeed. ❤️ 11mo
