    The original CliffsNotes study guides offer expert commentary on major themes, plots, characters, literary devices, and historical background.

    In CliffsNotes on Night, you follow the humanistic first-person account of a teenage boy's incarceration by the Nazi Secret Service in World War II; his experiences in the Auschwitz and Buchenwald death camps; and his struggle to find meaning among the horror.

    Covering little more than a year of the young narrator's life, this study guide shares a story about endurance, loyalty, and faith — all nurtured by the strength of love. Other features that help you figure out this important work include

    • Life and background of the author, Dr. Elie Wiesel
    • A list of characters
    • A historical timeline of Nazi Germany
    • A review section that tests your knowledge and suggests essay topics
    • A selected bibliography that leads you to more great resources

    Classic literature or modern-day treasure — you'll understand it all with expert information and insight from CliffsNotes study guides.
