Un di Velt Hot Geshvign

Born in the town of Sighet Transylvania Elie Wiesel was a teenager when he and his family were taken from their home in 1944 to Auschwitz concentration camp and then to Buchenwald Night is the terrifying record of Elie Wiesel'. There is little that freaks me out than the Holocaust And I m not belittling it at all with the phrase freaks me out Growing up in the 1970s and 80s I felt sufficiently desensitized enough by television violence to be able to gauge how often I need to shake the jiffy pop and run to the bathroom before the programviolence resumesElie Wiesel s Night brings me back to my senses makes me hate the cold hearted bitch I ve learned to be And not by some overtly dramatic rendition of the horrors of life in a concentration camp but of the LACK of it The down to the nitty gritty telling of what happened during the year that he was imprisoned It wasn t going for the kick to the gut reaction of a confused inconceivable retelling of day to day events and this this is what really makes me shudder and be at a loss for words Hell words Who am I kidding Try coherent thought I would pause at every sentence and start over and over again I would conjure up other verbs other images other silent cries It still was not right But what exactly was It It was something elusive darkly shrouded for fear of being usurped profaned All the dictionary had to offer seemed meager pale lifeless His description of his last encounter with his mother and little sister An SS came towards us wielding a club He commanded Men to the left Women to the right Eight words spoken uietly indifferently without emotion Eight simple short words Yet that was the moment when I left my mother Words The power they can hold is devastating Yes not a new thought not an original one yet fucking true nonetheless Buna Buchenwald Mengele Auschwitz Words but ones that incite something within Creepy crawlies or nausea Fear I have met only one Holocaust survivor that I m aware of And met is too strong a word I was working in a store during college and was collecting payment from a customer who handed me the money and flashed his tattoo I paled My eyes darted from the faded black green numbers that served as this man s identity to his face and knew that I was just another gawker That in that one moment I had created a history for this man No he WAS history Certainly makes you rethink being pissed off that Sbarro s had left the food court I think that my kids will most likely never meet a survivor That books like Night and Anne Frank will have to serve as an education a reminder that THIS in fact DID happen and that it is cruel and moronic and downright irresponsible to believe otherwise I could say that I did have some sense of relief that at least I wasn t alive during this That I didn t sit back and have some vague understanding of this going on But that s not really the case right We have Rwanda and Darfur and god knows what other insane situations happening out there and we re outraged over the price of an iPhone For in the end it is all about memory its sources and its magnitude and of course its conseuences So Elie Wiesel s account at 112 pages serves as a powerful undeniable testament As simply stated as that Never shall I forget that night the first night in camp that turned my life into one long night seven times sealedNever shall I forget that smokeNever shall I forget the small faces of the children whose bodies I saw transformed into smoke under a silent skyNever shall I forget those flames that consumed my faith foreverNever shall I forget the nocturnal silence that deprived me for all eternity of the desire to live Never shall I forget those moments that murdered my God and my soul and tuned my dreams to ashesNever shall I forget those things even were I condemned to live as long as God Himself Never And in the Preface to the New Translation he says And yet still I wonder Have I used the right words For me yes Most definitely yes

S memories of the death of his family the death of his own innocence and his despair as a deeply observant Jew confronting the absolute evil of man This new translation by his wife and most freuent translator Marion Wiesel cor. The first time I read Night by Eli Wiesel I was in an eighth grade religious school class At that time it had recently become a law in my state to teach the Holocaust as part of the general curriculum and as a result my classmates and I were the torchbearers to tell people to never forget and were inundated with uality Holocaust literature Yet even though middle school students can comprehend Night the subject matter at times is still way over their heads The book itself although a prize winner blended into the religious school class and receded to the back of my memory bank These years later I have been enjoying a religious lifestyle for my adult life Upon hearing that Nobel Laureate Eli Wiesel passed away recently I thought now was as good of a time as any to reread his award winning account of surviving the Holocaust Although only 120 pages in length Wiesel s memoir of life in the concentration camps is one of the most powerful pieces of literature that most people will ever read Wiesel discusses his relationship with G D and talks about his conflicting feelings in regards to taking care of his father while in Buna and Birkenau camps It was not easy to digest Wiesel also writes in length about observing Rosh Hashanah while in the concentration camps Why praise the Almighty for one s deliverance if one s existence is spent as a prisoner living on crusts of bread It was easy to forget G D or denounce His existence even for the most religious Jews These passages brought me close to tears On this eve of Rosh Hashanah I can thank the Blessed Creator that I enjoy a comfortable lifestyle Even though the world is far from perfect my family lives in a land of freedom and are free to worship as we choose Eli Wiesel brought Holocaust awareness to many people and earned the Nobel Peace Prize in 1986 His passing is indicative that few survivors are still with us and we should hear their stories while we still can Night is a painful yet necessary read and by reading it I can go into the new year thanking G D for my right to live in relative peace and prosperity
