The paper describes and compares the texts and styles of the books and further discusses the importance of the two texts in teaching the world about the events of the Holocaust.

From the Paper:

"The Diary Of A Young Girl by Anne Frank and Night by Elie Wiesel are two documents that allow humanity to enter into the world of the Holocaust and learn about the tragic events that took place. A common agreement among survivors and victims of the Holocaust is that there could never possibly be the exact language to describe the horrors that took place during this dark period in history. The two texts written by Frank and Wiesel, however, are literary texts that are able to give profound insight and information into what really did occur throughout the Nazi regime. Both authors give extraordinary accounts of their lives, which are unforgettable reminders of what humanity should never let happen again."
