Night Review

Open Document

Below is a free excerpt of "Night Review" from Anti Essays, your source for free research papers, essays, and term paper examples.

* Heavy content - Not beach reading
* A teenage boy ripped from his home by Nazis

* A true story that we would rather not think about, but need to hear and remember

But Wiesel did not experience light, and Night will not let the reader pretend the Holocaust was anything other than what it was. Wiesel tells the complete truth about his experience, and the reader is left with hard questions.
Remembering, however, is not a fruitless task. We remember so that we can tackle the big questions honestly and so...
