Night by Elie Wiesel

Reviews this autobiographical novel on the Holocaust by survivor, Elie Wiesel.

Elie Wiesel’s novel tries to keep the historical memory of the holocaust alive. We see the holocaust through the eyes of a little child. In witnessing this horror, the reader is reminded of the memory of the holocaust. Historical memory is important in this context, because once humanity wipes it out, it becomes possible that crimes like the holocaust can become possible again.
