Review: THE TOWN BEYOND THE WALL by Elie Wiesel

The Town Beyond the Wall by Elie Wiesel is another book read by Lorri from Jew Wishes that counts toward the WWII reading challenge.  Here is an excerpt from her review:

The Town Beyond the Wall is a study in suffering, and returning to the place where the suffering began. It is where it continues to keep its hold on you, due to many factors, both real and imagined. The novel questions whether you can return to where your life began, to where you spent the first youthful formative years of your life, to where your life as you knew it ended, and not feel some form of pain or suffering. To do so would be to blot out those who came before you.
