Storyline

A documentary chronicling the adolescent years of Elie Wiesel and the history of his sufferings. Eliezer was fifteen when Fascism brutally altered his life forever. Fifty years later, he returns to Sighetu Marmatiei, the town where he was born, to walk the painful road of remembrance - but is it possible to speak of the unspeakable? Or does Auschwitz lie beyond the capacity of any human language - the place where words and stories run out? Written by Dawn M. Barclift

Historical document based on Elie Wiesel's account of his return in 1994 to Romania and Auschwitz
11 March 2008 | by See all my reviews

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.
