Elie Wiesel did not know at the time that he had a reason for surviving this tragedy, but soon realized that he survived to offer a story and message about the horrors of that time to a world that often seemed to block it out completely and forget ( Having Survived 1). To spread his message to the world, which is one of peace, redemption, and human nobleness, Wiesel speaks all over the world as a public orator.

Holocaust survivor known for his novel Night, he was a voice for the slaughtered Jewish people. It’s an unforgettable and heartbreaking experience. Wiesel, a Nobel Laureate, was that good of a writer, and his legacy will always stand as that of an important voice on a tragic point in history. Though Wiesel often used his influence to speak out against genocide around the world, he also provided moral cover for Israel’s current right-wing government and their inhumane treatment of the Palestinian people. I feel uncomfortable pointing this out, but it’s something that should be said.

This clearly-written, accessible biography tells the story of Elie Wiesel's life in the context of historical events, both in his native Romania and in Europe. Using a wide variety of sources, Moore paints the picture of a young teen, his family, and his community torn asunder during the Holocaust. Moore's dramatic, vivid writing communicates the horror the Jews faced: "The Jews of Sighet were frightened by what they heard. Hitler was a fire on the horizon; his flame grew closer as months went by." (p. 34). Moore describes Wiesel's life after 1945 and includes interesting bits about his wife and son. She offers a fascinating glimpse into Wiesel's writing--both content and process.

The book includes elements that help the young reader navigate: contents, timeline, chapter notes, glossary, and index. In addition, separate pages act like sidebars to the main narrative. Some examples are: mini-biographies of Adolf Hitler and François Mauriac, as well as Wiesel's acceptance speech on receiving the Nobel Peace Prize in 1986. Unfortunately, the book contains several errors in word usage. For example, "omnipotent" is quoted from a source instead of "impotent". (p.65) This book should help promote Elie Wiesel's ineluctable aim: "For the dead and the living, we must bear witness." Let us hope this goal is achieved.

This is a can't-put-it-down biography that delves into the details, from painful to remarkable, about the life of Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel. The book shows how Wiesel - dealing for decades with the effects of his harrowing experience - wrote a host of memorable books and became a powerful voice for morality. A really good read -- even for an adult!
