Deborah Barnhardt is appalled, Thursday, January 8, 2004, that some people do not believe Elie Wiesel's memoirs are true
I believe in Wiesel
I JUST read some of your commentary on Weisel's [sic. Wiesel's] book Night. I am an English teacher currently reading this memoir with my ninth grade classes.
I'm pretty appalled that you would even consider discrediting this man's memories of his experiences in Auschwitz. Considering the tragedies he and his fellow inmates endured, how could he possibly remember each event exactly as it has happened.
For what does it matter if minor details are "incorrect" according to "your" research? You should be ashamed of yourself for what you have done.
