As part of the Holocaust Heroes and Nazi Criminals series, this biography introduces younger readers to Wiesel as an Austrian boy, survivor of the Holocaust, storyteller and activist.

A timeline, chapter notes, glossary and index help the young reader navigate through the book. Short sidebar pages offer such additional information as mini-biographies of Adolf Hitler, Josef Mengele and Francois Mauriac, as well as Wiesel’s acceptance speech on receiving the Nobel Peace Prize in 1986. Several black-and-white photos accompany the text.
