Night, by,Elie Wiesel.
My daughter read it, then started asking me about it. She said, she had heard some and read some in high school, but til now, it was like a dream to her. So, now I re-read about this so it doesn't become a dream and is remembered and allowed to never happen again.

Thanks Pds,
It's something, I feel needs to be done for me. It's easy to forget and hard to remember, but, we must.

here's another one along that line, although not about the Jews:

The Gathering Storm, by Winston Churchill - the first book in his series about WW2. In fact I was just thinking about re-reading this one myself.

I ran into this and thought I'd pass it on. You can type in the name of an author you like and it will give you names of other authors that are similar. http://www.literature-map.com/
