In this powerful and wide-ranging collection of essays, letters and diary entries, weaving together all the periods of the author’s life — from his childhood in Transylvania to Auschwitz and Buchenwald, Paris, New York — Elie Wiesel, acclaimed as one of the most gifted and sensitive writers of our time, probes, from the particular point of view of his Jewishness, such central moral and political issues as Zionism and the Middle East conflict, Solzhenitsyn and Soviet anti-Semitism, the obligations of American Jews toward Israel, the Holocaust and its cheapening in the media.
ELIE WIESEL was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1986. The author of more than fifty internationally acclaimed works of fiction and nonfiction, he was Andrew W. Mellon Professor in the Humanities and University Professor at Boston University for forty years…. More about Elie Wiesel
"Rich in autobiographical, philosophical, moral and historical implications…a jew today reveals a matchless writer in complete control of his power:" — Chicago Tribune
