Night by Elie Wiesel( Recording )

24 editions published between 2006 and 2015 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 1,885 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Though technically a novel, Night is also an unmistakably autobiographical depiction of the author's own gruesome experiences in Nazi Germany's death camps. Told throught the eyes of 14-year-old- Eliezer, the tragic fate of the Jews from the little town of Sighet unfolds with a heart-wrenching inevitability. Even as they are stuffed into cattle cars bound for Auschwitz, the townspeople refuse to believe rumors of anti-Semitic atrocities. Not until they are marched toward the blazing crematory at the camp's 'reception center' does the terrible truth sink in"--Container

Souls on fire : portraits and legends of Hasidic masters by Elie Wiesel( Book )

8 editions published between 1972 and 1993 in English and held by 1,422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

His book is difficult for me to describe, I guess I can only say that along with 'Man's Search for Meaning' by Viktor E. Frankl, 'Souls on Fire' by Elie Wiesel is among the two books that have changed my life. In these powerful and beautiful stories of Jewish Hasidic masters Elie Wiesel teaches us to fight depression by deliberately cultivating joy, that we must enjoy life in spite of life, that death is never the answer, and that that life is sacred, so much so that in spite of anything we have suffered we must say yes to this life

Zalmen, or, The madness of God by Marion Wiesel( Book )

12 editions published between 1971 and 1987 in English and held by 1,108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On Yom Kippur eve in 1965, Elie Wiesel found himself in Russia, "in a synagogue crowded with people. The air was stifling. The cantor was chanting ... Suddenly a mad thought crossed my mind: Something is about to happen; any moment now the Rabbi will wake up, shake himself, pound the pulpit and cry out, shout his pain, his rage, his truth. I felt the tension building up inside me; the wait became unbearable. But nothing happened ... It was too late. The Rabbi no longer had the strength to imagine himself free." In Zalmen, or The Madness of God, Wiesel gives his Rabbi that strength, the courage to voice his oppression and isolation, and the result is a passionate cry. This play illuminates not only the plight of the Soviet Jew, but the anguish of individuals everywhere who must survive'and yet long for something more than mere survival. (Adapted for the stage by Marion Wiesel.)

The vibrant, intimate world of Vishniac's photographs contains shepherds and sages, waifs and dignitaries, cheder boys and traveling salesmen, housewives, shopkeepers, and "carriers of heavy loads." In the Carpathians, a man walks to work with a saw under one arm, a prayer shawl under the other. In Lublin, a woman sells baked goods at the Old City wall, while in the yeshiva, "entranced young faces look beyond earthly existence." In Vilna, children play ball at the entrance to the ghetto. For Vishniac, the glance or gesture of each mother, each child, was a story that had to be told. As Cornell Capa writes at the beginning of this volume, Roman Vishniac "was selected through divine grace to give us his memory of a world that has vanished, a world you are holding in your hands." Includes nearly 140 photographs as well as brief excerpts from Vishniac's unpublished diaries
