Holocaust survivor; Elie Wiesel (far right) with mother and younger sister Tzipora in a archive photo taken before Elie was transported to the death camps. His mother and sister did not survive the war.
Oprah and Elie Weisel at Auschwitz. An interview that is an excellent pre-reading activity for introducing the author (Wiesel) and the subject (Holocaust) to students. Great when used with a KWL chart.
One of the most powerful books I've ever read. I think this book speaks volumes about human nature: the evil, the good, and primal need to survive. My oldest just finished reading it. I would definitely recommend this book to everyone.
Night is one of the few books that my students actually enjoy reading. I admire Elie Wiesel and other authors who have the courage to share the unimaginable hardships they have overcome. May their bravery serve as an inspiration to others. ~ Amy #OneBraveThing
