Book Review: Night and Diary of a Young Girl

Book Review: Night by Elie Wiesel and The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank

This was not my first time reading The Diary of a Young Girl. I must have read it when I was 13 or 14. It was my first time reading Night.

If you have not read either of these books, read them. It doesn't matter how many books or movies I've read or seen about World War II and the Holocaust. It's always a powerful, moving story. And these two books are probably the most powerful books I've read about the Holocaust.

A lot because of their unique points of views. One written by a young teenage girl in hiding with great insight into her situation and yet still some optimism and hope. One written by an adult man remembering his horrific experience as a teenager in the concentration camps.

Seriously. Read them.

Disclosure: No one paid me in any way, form or fashion to do this review.

Next month - Half Broke Horses by Jeannette Walls
