On August 12, 1952, Russia's greatest Jewish writers were secretly executed by Stalin. The publication of Day restores Elie Wiesel's original title to the novel initially published in English as The Accident and clearly establishes it as the powerful conclusion to the author's classic trilogy of Holocaust literature, which includes his memoir Night and novel Dawn. In Night it is the ‘I' who speaks," writes Wiesel.

Writing in prison, a Russian Jewish poet recounts the hopes, a frustrations, and ultimate futility of his attempt to reconcile the beliefs of his Jewish heritage and the communist ideal he has pursued
  • Elie Wiesel has proven himself to be a master storyteller, taking real life accounts and events, and turning them into haunting literature. While the focus of "The Testament" is not the Holocaust, as is the focus of many of his other works, Jewish history and what happens to the Jews in WWII plays a large role. "The Testament" bears Wiesel's trademark stylings, the shifting back and forth between time, that brings past and present together, and a son trying to come to terms with his father's life, a father he was never able to know.

    "The Testament" is the 'confession' of sorts of the main character, Palatiel Kossover. Palatiel was a Russian-born Jew who traded in his faith for communism while he was a teenager. He devoted his life to words to stir the party to action, taking part in the fighting in Spain and Russia, fighting against the Nazis. Yet upon returning to Russia after the war, he finds the party isn't what he once believed in, and soon finds himself a hunted man because of what he has said and printed. It is while he is in prison that he writes out his testment, a long letter to a son he shall never see again. Palatiel's story is intersected with that of his son Grisha, a young mute estranged from his mother and desperate to learn of his father. When a mutual friend informs him of his father's past, Grisha knows that it is his task to tell people of his father, to bring his father back to life.

    Normally the stylings of Wiesel's novels work for him - the shifts back and forth between time in "The Testament" get too bogged down with characters, who because of espionage related reasons, have more than one name. This can make it difficult for readers to follow all of Palatiel's movements and associations during the war. Yet despite that, "The Testament" is as powerful of a work as any Wiesel has written. It explores and exposes what is really at the heart of human nature, and how in the midst of desolation, hope can live on no matter how desperately it is being crushed.

  • Weisel is an excellent and vivid writer, who illuminates an horific time in history as few can. He does so while giving all the characters, even the evil ones, the depth and breadth of humanity.
    His writings always leave me wanting more and at the same time I can only handle so much of this reality at any one time.

  • It made me wonder how can someone fill in so much of knowledge, epic, travel, emotion and poetry together. Cannot rate it anything below fantastic and inspiring. Read it for love of language and reading, and also for how deep a human can think. Above all, it remains a page turner which only completes the story on the final page. Brilliant and a treatise. Wonder why there is no kindle version to this masterpiece!
