Synopsis

Like Wiesel himself, the protagonist of Night is a scholarly, pious teenager racked with guilt at having survived the genocidal campaign that consumed his family.

It is a terrifying account of the Nazi death camp horror that turns a young Jewish boy into an agonized witness to the death of his family...the death of his innocence...and the death of his God.

His memories of the nightmare world of the death camps present him with an intolerable question: how can the God he once so fervently believed in have allowed these monstrous events to occur? There are no easy answers in this harrowing book, which probes life's essential riddles with the lucid anguish only great literature achieves.




故事梗概

和维瑟尔本人一样,《夜》的主角也是一位文质彬彬,笃信虔诚的十几岁小男孩。作为家族中唯一从种族灭绝集中营中幸存下来的孩子,他总是感到深深的内疚。


故事讲述了这位年轻的犹太男孩如何在纳粹集中营中痛苦地看着家人、天真的本性和心中的上帝被杀戮、毁灭。




在死亡集中营的噩梦记忆使他不得不思考一个问题:他虔诚信仰的上帝怎么能允许这样恐怖的事情发生?在本书中,作者没有给出答案,与众多伟大的作品一样,它通过痛苦的经历探索生命的真谛。







 

Comment

Nobel laureate Elie Wiesel's wrenching attempt to find meaning in the horror of the Holocaust is technically a novel, but it's based so closely on his own experiences in Birkenau, Auschwitz, and Buchenwald that it's generally--and not inaccurately--read as an autobiography.


评价

诺贝尔奖获得者埃利·维瑟尔渴望通过小说的形式找出恐怖大屠杀的意义,但书中很多内容都是基于他自己在比尔克瑙集中营、奥斯维辛集中营和布痕瓦尔德集中营的可怕经历,因此这本书也可堪称一部自传了。
