Night by Elie Wiesel, about his experience with his father in Nazi German concentration camps Auschwitz & Buchenwald

7. September 2010

Auf der Startseite der englischsprachigen Wikipedia wird heute unter „Today’s featured article“ Night (Book) von Elie Wiesel empfohlen, in der deutschsprachigen gibt’s noch nicht mal eine Übersetzung des engl. Wiki-Textes (selbst die chin. hat einen Kurztext):

Night is a work by Elie Wiesel about his experience with his father, Shlomo, in the Nazi German concentration camps at Auschwitz and Buchenwald in 1944–1945, at the height of the Holocaust and toward the end of the Second World War. In just over 100 pages of sparse and fragmented narrative, described as devastating in its simplicity, Wiesel writes about the death of God and his own increasing disgust with humanity, reflected in the inversion of the father-child relationship as Shlomo devolves to a helpless state and Wiesel becomes his resentful teenage caregiver. „If only I could get rid of this dead weight … Immediately I felt ashamed of myself, ashamed forever.“ In Night, everything is inverted, every value destroyed. „Here there are no fathers, no brothers, no friends,“ a Kapo tells him. „Everyone lives and dies for himself alone.“ []
