This short book, translated from French, is part two of a trilogy: the first book is Night; the third book was published as either Day or “The Accident”. But read on its own, it makes you take a good hard look at yourself and your own moral self. It is about a Jewish man, who is a Holocaust survivor and an Israeli freedom fighter in Palestine. I found it very satisfying and I highly recommend reading it. (submitted by NB)

Dawn- a fiction and yet sequel to Nobel Peace Prize winner Elie Wiesel’s book Night. This was a very short book and regretfully, I did not enjoy it as much as Night. Other than describing one aspect of the plight of the Jewish people after WW II, and before the state of Israel was created, I saw little link between the two books. It does portray a young man’s struggle with taking another man’s life. The third book in the Trilogy is Day; regretfully not available at the Library. Senior Doctor-at-Bass! D. A.

The sequel to Night is a gripping, mesmerizing story. A young holocaust survivor agonizes over the decision to end the life of a young British soldier as he fights for the Jewish resistance in British-occupied Palestine. A very short book but very powerful.
