This is a very emotionally moving book. It is vivid and intense. This is a heart-wrenching memoir. ( )
For anyone to suffer the scourge of the Nazi Holocaust, survival is an enduring memory of questions and thoughtful reflection. Elie Wiesel did survive the Holocaust and went on to a successful career as a writer and champion of Israel. I think Wiesel's life and writing is summed-up nicely from page 354 of this book: "What is the difference between Jews and Christians? We all await the Messiah. You believe He has already come and gone, while we do not. I therefore propose that we await Him together. And when He appears, we can ask Him: were You here before?
Carpathian Mountains to Auschwitz to France. The autobiography of a survivor.
What I really loved about the two volumes of Wiesel's memoirs is that they humanized a person that I'd looked up to for a long time. He readily admitted the mistakes he made in his life, and this brought him down to the same level as the rest of us.
This will be my back-to-school read!
After 3 months, I have finally finished reading this book - it is a pretty intense read, a definitely must-have, a tear-jerker had I not read it at public places.

In this first volume of his two-volume autobiography, Wiesel takes us from his childhood memories of a traditional and loving Jewish family in the Romanian village of Sighet through the horrors of Auschwitz and Buchenwald and the years of spiritual struggle, to his emergence as a witness for the Holocaust's martyrs and survivors and for the State of Israel, and as a spokesman for humanity. With 16 pages of black-and-white photographs. "From the abyss of the death camps Wiesel has come as a messenger to mankind--not with a message of hate and revenge, but with one of brotherhood and atonement." --From the citation for the 1986 Nobel Peace Prize
