‘Hostage: A Novel’ by Elie Wiesel
For over half a century, Elie Wiesel has eloquently expressed the moral, spiritual and physical fortitude it took to survive Auschwitz. “Night”, his classic memoir about the atrocities of the Holocaust not only established a literary canon, but also unequivocally proved the transformative power of words. Fifty-seven books later, Wiesel’s writing is no less influential. “Hostage” is a novel set in 1975, just three short years after a radical Palestinian group murdered eleven Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympic Games.
