2. Overview: A Story of Survival.

Night

Elie Wiesel, 1960
Famous for: Unflinching descriptions of Holocaust brutality, a search for faith, survival.

You could say that Elie Wiesel gave the ending away just by writing Night. In other words, even if you already know about the millions of people who were murdered during the Holocaust, you know that Elie Wiesel wasn’t one of them. You know because he lived to write this book. That’s why Night is a story about survival.
