“I swore never to be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation. We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.” – Elie Wiesel ---Hungarian-born Jewish-American writer, professor, political activist, Nobel Laureate, and Holocaust survivor.
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.
