Historical document based on Elie Wiesel's account of his return in 1994 to Romania and Auschwitz

Author: jerebron-1 from United States
11 March 2008

A must see for everybody. Especially if you read the book "Night". This documentary is very powerful, sometimes, especially the Auschwitz part, almost too unbearable to watch. It is filmed in such a way that the emotionality is subdued but all the more powerful because of the eloquent and masterful narration of Elie Wiesel. He visits in 1994 his birth town (now in Romania, then Hungary) from where the deportation to Auschwitz-Birkenau started 50 years ago, and retraces his footsteps as a child, from Romania to Auschwitz. A testament of dignity and character by a man who lost his parents, sisters, all of his family, neighbors and everybody else of his Jewish community in the gas chambers.
