Rated 5 out of 5 by from Poetically haunting This is a very difficult and painful book to read. It is written very poetically - its images truthful and without embellishment. Within it lies the tortured soul of Elie Wiesel, a survivor of the Holocaust. This book provides insight into why the author is so driven to make every precious moment of his life count. Author of more than 50 books, recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1986, he writes about his return to his hometown to find his watch, perhaps to find pieces of himself, before the Holocaust. Brutal are the remembrances. It repeatedly causes you to ask yourself, "How could something like this have happened? Why did the world stand by and do nothing?" Devastatingly, we continue to ignore the cries of others throughout the world today. As Elie Wiesel ended his address to the General Assembly of the United Nations on January 24, 2005, "....will the world ever learn?" Thank you for your courage in writing, in speaking and in educating us about something that never should have happened to mankind - and yet did. I will continue to read, to learn and I pledge today, that I will bear witness. Go and buy this book, read it, talk about it, share it with others and learn from it. It is worth your time.

Editorial Reviews

“Hassidic stories and rabbinic interpretations shine through the personal reminiscences and humble prayers addressed to God.”
Saturday Review

“In this book of anecdotes, autobiographical fragments, conversations with victims, introspective analyses, dialogues of faith, and essays, [Wiesel] searches among the testimony of the survivors and contemporary events for possible answers or lessons that Auschwitz might have offered the generation born since the war. Society, he states, has not changed, and nothing has been learned.”
Publishers Weekly

“In an incredibly moving collection of essays, tales, and autobiographical sketches, Wiesel describes the agonizing plight of the Holocaust survivor who must try to relate that which is beyond words, and to search for meaning in experiences that defy understanding. Many of the haunting themes, memorable characters, and striking episodes of Wiesel’s novels are intimately revealed in these pages.”
