Dawn: A Novel (The Night Trilogy, Book 2)

Élie Wiesel


Elisha is a tender Jewish guy, a Holocaust survivor, and an Israeli freedom fighter in British-controlled Palestine; John Dawson is the captured English officer he'll homicide at sunrise in retribution for the British execution of a fellow freedom fighter. The night-long look forward to morning and dying presents sunrise, Elie Wiesel's ever extra well timed novel, with its harrowingly taut, hour-by-hour narrative. stuck among the manifold horrors of the previous and the troubling dilemmas of the current, Elisha wrestles with guilt, ghosts, and eventually God as he waits for the appointed hour and his act of assassination. sunrise is an eloquent meditation at the compromises, justifications, and sacrifices that people make once they homicide different humans.
