Picked this book up at the local ubs, Willow Tree Books.
This is my 2,000th book registered.
My daughter read this in high school, and recommended it. I've never read it; perhaps I should. But regardless, I've got special plans for this one.

From the cover -
Born in the town of Sighet, Transylvania, Elie Wiesel was a teenager when he and his family were taken from their home in 1944 to the Auschwitz concentration camp, and then to Buchenwald. Night is the terrifying record of Elie Wiesel's memories of the death of his family, the death of his own innocence, and his despair as a deeply observant Jew confronting the absolute evil of man. This new translation by his wife and most frequent translator, Marion Wiesel, corrects important details and presents the most accurate rendering in English of Elie Wiesel's testimony to what happened in the camps and of his unforgettable message that this horror must never be allowed to happen again.

This is a very important story that should be read by everyone (like Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank). I don't believe I'd ever heard of it, before my daughter recommended it. Wiesel's prose is very spare; his words capture your attention. I read about this book on Wikipedia; I didn't know this is the beginning of a trilogy, followed by Dawn and Day (although this book is a memoir, and Dawn and Day are fictional).

I believe I will RABCK this book later this month to celebrate my 5th anniversary in BC.

Today is my 5th BC anniversary, so to celebrate I'm having a RABCK-a-day bonanza this month. This book will soon be sent to Bluecat07 in Germany.

Reserved for VeganMedusa, as a substitute for a book in the nongenre swap 06/08 at bookobsessed.com.

30.7.08: Finished reading this. A very moving and impressive memoir of the Holocaust. I liked the style of short paragraphs to devide a chapter into different themes.

Sending this to Vegan now together with the swap book. Enjoy (if you can say that in combination with this topic)!

Ha! Yes, when I saw this extra book I said "Oh cool!" then "well, as cool as the Holocaust can be".
Thanks heaps for this blue. Extra hugs for you and your little one (Emma - let your Mama have some sleep!)
