    Summary: Elie Wiesel tell us the horrible things he went through during concentration camps, and the struggle of trying to keep his father alive and by his side. Elie was around the age of fifteen when he and his family were taken away to a ghetto from their home in Sighet. Then from there, to Auschwitz. When arriving to Auschwitz, he immediately was separated from his mother and his sister, luckily, he stayed with his father. Overtime, Elie and his father transfer camps and things got more complicated with their relationship. Elie always, wanted to protect his father and make sure he knew where he was at all times, even if there was a risk of a beating or losing a food ration. Elie’s mentally changes drastically which is a very strong part of the book, seeing all the disturbing things at one point, did not phase him at all.

    Evaluation: This book is a hard one to read but not for the vocabulary, but because you connect with Elie and you feel sadness when you reach certain parts. Elie does a great job by keeping the readers interested, a hard book to put down. This book gives readers more of a personal view about the Holocaust and a better understanding of what everyone in the camps had to go through every single day they were there. It was a struggle to stay alive each day and Elie does an excellent job of showing this by discussing his inner thoughts/dialog when he was just a teenager and this definitely will captivate anyone who reads it.

    Recommendations: The Night Trilogy by Elie Wiesel, Looking For Alaska by John Green.
