The Night is Darker than Dark

The book Night is a biography about Elie Wiesel. Elie is a boy who was put into a concentration camp with all his family at the age of 15. In the book, he is transferred from Auschwitz to Buchenwald, then to Buna. The book is about how torturing it is to live a life at a concentration camp at such a young age. Elie has some problems with connecting and disconnecting with God while he is at camp. He tells how it was so brutal in the camps and how they hurt people for the most trivial reasons.  Elie and his father had a really close relationship. But until they got to the camp, there were some points of the story in which they were really distant from each other.

About the author, Elie Wiesel was born on September 30, 1928 in Sighetu Marmației, Romania, and he died on July 2, 2016 in Manhattan, New York.
