This is one of the few books I can say truley moved me. It is a memoir of a holocaust survivor named Elie Wiesel. The book is very graphic. It tells of elies time in Auschwitz one of the death camps and Buma a concentration camp . The story really helped me better understand the horrors of the holocaust. I highly recommend this book.

I read an excerpt from that in my World Lit. class. I thought it was amazing in detail and scary to think that there are people who can do that kind of thing. I get chills just thinking about it.

I've never heard of this book. It does sound intresting, though.

I had to read it this year for English. It's a very emotional book. Some of the things described gave me chills, such as how the Jewish people were treated. It really brings the worst in people to light. Not something I'd ordinarily pull off the shelf but a good book nonetheless.

I've read a bit of it (gotta finish for English though). Very sad and moving book indeed.
