Memoirs By Elie Wiesel Translated by: Jon (French) Rothschild 6"x9" (480 Pages)Publisher: Random House, 1995
The long-anticipated memoirs of the novelist and Nobel Peace Laureate Elie Wiesel. Torn from a traditional and loving Jewish family life in a Carpathian mountain village and dragged through the horrors of Auschwitz and Buchenwald, Elie Wiesel emerged a bloodless adolescent, a mute spirit, with no homeland. In this passionate, poignant, and inspiring look back at those years and what followed, his remarkable life unfolds. At war's end -- a French orphanage, a new language and culture; a struggle with his G-d; a search for love despite human evil; reunions with family survivors; the influence of Jewish scripture, mystics, Golda Meir, Ben-Gurion; a deep devotion to Israel, a mission to chronicle its birth and formative years; finding, at last, his voice as witness for martyrs and survivors alike.
