Professor Elie Wiesel

1 of 5
 
Night, chosen in January 2006 as an Oprah's Book Club selection, has become one of the most important books of our time since it was first published in French in 1958. It is the story of author Elie Wiesel's childhood and the daily terrors he endured inside the German death camps. The autobiographical work recalls the unspeakable horrors Professor Wiesel witnessed during World War II as 6 million Jewish men, women and children were wiped off the face of the earth—including most of his own family.
