Torn from a traditional and loving Jewish family life in a Carpathian mountain village and dragged through the horrors of Auschwitz and Buchenwald, Elie Weisel emerged a bloodless adolescent, a mute spirit, with no homeland. In this passionate, poignant, and inspiring look back at those years and what followed, his remarkable life unfolds for the listener. Simultaneous hardcover release from Knopf. 2 cassettes.

The long-awaited memoirs of Wiesel, winner of the 1986 Nobel Peace Prize, tell the story of his happy childhood in the Carpathian Mountains, his subsequent years of hell in Auschwitz and Buchenwald, and his post-war life in France, where he discovered his voice as a writer. Highly recommended.About the Author:
