At an early age, I recall hearing many stories told by my elders about the tiny town of Blue Springs and the remarkable people who lived in and around it. I used many of these tales as bedtime stories for my children and grandchildren. Many people urged me to record these stories in writing. Additionally I noticed at an early age how highly esteemed and respected my father was in the community because of his total dedication to his medical practice and how he conducted it. I have also wanted to leave some sort of written tribute for my children and grandchildren about what remarkable people their ancestors were, especially my parents and grandparents. Finally, for a small boy, the tiny little town of Blue Springs was a natural paradise in which to grow up. Springs, swamps, a river, fields and forests abounded. I wanted to tell my children and grandchildren what it was like. I also want them to know, appreciate, and attempt to add to their genealogy. These are the reasons for this book.

A New Translation From The French By Marion Wiesel Night is Elie Wiesel's masterpiece, a candid, horrific, and deeply poignant autobiographical account of his survival as a teenager in the Nazi death camps. This new translation by Marion Wiesel, Elie's wife and frequent translator, presents this seminal memoir in the language and spirit truest to the author's original intent. And in a substantive new preface, Elie reflects on the enduring importance of Night and his lifelong, passionate dedication to ensuring that the world never forgets man's capacity for inhumanity to man. Night offers much more than a litany of the daily terrors, everyday perversions, and rampant sadism at Auschwitz and Buchenwald; it also eloquently addresses many of the philosophical as well as personal questions implicit in any serious consideration of what the Holocaust was, what it meant, and what its legacy is and will be.
