Now Reading: Elie Wiesel’s Night

April 14, 2014

Elie Wiesel_Night

Amazingly, I made it through high school and college without reading Elie Wiesel’s Night. Having just found a copy in good condition at a local used bookstore, I plan now to read it. My recent reading of Bonhoeffer has revived my interest in Holocaust and genocide studies.

(Yes, I know it's a reality of "white/male privilege" to be able to choose when to think about oppression and to make "studies" out of genocide.)

I may or may not report back here again about Night, but I expect it to be a powerful read.

    I didn’t read this in school either, but when I did finally read it, I was captivated and drowning in emotions and thoughts for many days. Very moving.
