The riveting story, by Elie Wiesel
-"Moishe was not the same. The joy in his eyes was gone. He no longer sang. He no longer mentioned either God or Kabbalah. He spoke only of what he had seen. But people not only refused to believe his tale, they refused to listen (Wiesel:7)."
A story of survival...
When Elie Wiesel was just a teenager, his gruesome story began. Living in the town of Sighet, Transylvania, until the Germans arrived and shattered his life. Elie was born a Hasidic Jew, and as such was taken to a concentration camp, as was his family. They were separated, and Elie and his father go to Auschwitz . The question is, how will they fare?
The story of an age...
This story of a young Jewish boy coming to see the real world around him, is a heart wrenching story that shows him coming of age. With some of the observations in the book, grim humor may also ensue. His story is one of reluctant progression away from his former self, one that is increasingly unique because of his dire circumstances. Have you ever had to try and live on little-to-nothing to eat before? Have you had to dance with death, like clockwork? This story is powerful and eye-opening, and I hope you find it as interesting as I did. Go buy this book! Read it, Feel it, Experience it.
