The Scars Of Tragedy

Night is simply a must-read book.

It highlights the pain and horror of the World War Two concentration camps through the eyes of a teenager.

Most horrible on the survivors are the scars that it leaves.

Every tragedy does that though, doesn't it?

It scars you, it changes you.

  • Loosing your parents at an early age.
  • Loosing children.
  • And every unspeakable atrocity imaginable.
  • You are changed forever.
Hopefully though, from pain can come strength.

"NEVER SHALL I FORGET that night, the first night in camp, that turned my life into one long night seven times sealed. Never shall I forget that smoke. Never shall I forget the small faces of the children whose bodies I saw transformed into smoke under a silent sky. Never shall I forget those flames that consumed my faith forever. Never shall I forget the nocturnal silence that deprived me for all eternity of the desire to live. Never shall I forget those moments that murdered my God and my soul and turned my dreams to ashes. Never shall I forget those things, even were I condemned to live as long as God Himself. Never."

--Elie Wiesel, Night
