Night by Elie Wiesel The novel Night was written in 1955 it was originally named And the World Remained Silent a 900-page volume The book was initially written in Yiddish and published in Buenos Aires Argentina After two years it appeared again in a compressed 127-page French version called La Nuit Night The book is generally about Elies own journey from an innocent twelve-year-old Jewish boy through the holocaust I found this book quite informative and enlightening It gives a first person perspective of life in a concentration camp with vivid details that could give anyone nightmares I would recommend this book for a more adult audience as it might be to frightening for younger children It is perfect for any person interested in history philosophy or psychology Wiesel wrote this book to inform the public of the cruel events that took place He makes the public aware of the massacre that was allowed to occur So many people were killed and as the original title said the world remained silent It is important that this information get out to keep history from repeating itself The holocaust was not that long ago and a genocide of that enormity could happen again unless people are made aware of the possibilities It is my perspective that this book does just that it lets people know that this could happen anywhere Another important theme in the novel concerns the inadvertent role that the Jews played in their own destruction Though the innocence of the Jewish townspeople is painfully foolish Elie does not fault his family and neighbors for being so reluctant to leave Sighet Although his story is filled with regret and guilt he is careful to point out that the hopefulness of the Jewish townspeople is merely a survival strategy These optimistic speeches which no one believed helped to pass the time The Jews must keep up hope if they want to survive to give up
