About the Author
With his powerful memoir Night, Elie Wiesel (1928-2016) put a face to the Holocaust, relating the horrors and inhumanity he experienced in Nazi concentration camps as a teenager. Published in 1955, Night is the first book in a trilogy and is followed by Dawn and Day, which document Wiesel’s life both during and after the Holocaust. Wiesel wrote more than fifty books in all and spent his life crusading against injustice around the globe. An esteemed activist, orator, and teacher, Wiesel won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1986.
