In 1944; Elie Wiesel, his family, and the rest of the town were placed in one of the two ghettos in Sighet. On May 16, 1944, the Hungarian authorities allowed the German army to deport the Jewish community in Sighet to Auschwitz-Birkenau. Elie was separated from his mother and sisters. He was the lone survivor of his family.
Night is one of the few books that my students actually enjoy reading. I admire Elie Wiesel and other authors who have the courage to share the unimaginable hardships they have overcome. May their bravery serve as an inspiration to others. ~ Amy #OneBraveThing
