It is a very short book, at just over 100 pages, but very gut riveting.
The book at first drew little interest and generated minimal sale. However, sales exploded after the trial of Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann in Jerusalem in 1961 and the topic of the Holocaust took media center stage globally.
The book depicts Wiesel’s horror experience in Auschwitz and his take on God’s apparent indifference to man’s fate.
He expressed his disgust with all of humanity, about his resentment at having to care for his father in the concentration camp, and the shame that resentment caused in him.
At the core of the book is the Nazi German quest to terminate Jews.
Popular TV personality Winfrey Oprah calls this book “required reading for all humanity.”
