    enormous book
    I'll have to reread Night. They're kind of bookends in his writing.
    Growing up, neighbors of ours were survivors. The daughter married a delightful little German man, a dentist. They kept care of her mother, who we all called "Nanny". We'd take her flowers or treats, and she'd give us lemon drops. Spoke very little english, just smiled and gestured. They were all gentle, funny and wonderful people. I was too young to know much about their history, she said it was very frightening and sad. Not many survivors left, but Elie Wiesel's life work to ensure remembrance and empowerment is a treasure.
