The point of a Holocaust book is not to be the best or worst at remembering something (as in, "star-worthy,"), but to bear witness to it and remember it--not because it's easy or desirable to remember, but to make sure it stays in memory.

This book provides a sweeping summary of the Holocaust, from the time of the systematic discrimination against the Jews in Europe (Hungary is the perspective of this particular author) to their systematic extermination. I gave this book four stars because the te...more
I just finished re-reading Night by Wiesel and stumbled across this one. It was very good, a concise description of what happened before, during, and then after the Holocaust. It includes several small vignettes of individual experiences by various survivors. It is quite short, lots of photographs, and I think it was well worth reading.
I had the pleasure of meeting Elie Wiesel and having him sign this book for me at a lecture at the National Press Club. Anyone and everyone who survived the debacle of the holocaust deserves to tell their story. It is a testament to the human spirit.
A simple collection of photographs, history and touching reflection from Elie Wiesel and remembrances of survivors of the greatest, large-scale tragedy in human history.
What an awesome book. I love what Wiesel has done for history. I loved the pictures in this as well.
Can you tell I've been teaching Night recently? Powerful first-hand accounts in this book.
Another compelling account from Elie Wiesel.
Amazing book...seriously. The images are stark and the words just enough. I'm going to buy it for my classroom next year for the spring Holocaust unit with the 8th graders.
