Night (109 pgs.) by Elie Wiesel is a memoir of man’s inhumanity to man
during the Holocaust in the 1940s. Elie Wiesel survived the Holocaust when 6 million of
others did not. You’ll experience his forced deportation in at age 12 and his experience
at Auschwitz, the largest of the Nazi concentration camps where 1.5 million Jews were
murdered in the gas chambers. Wiesel was silent for years before he could come to
terms with what happened to him and write about it and lecture about it. Wiesel won
the Nobel Peace Prize in 1986 and still travels the world encouraging others not to
allow Holocaust-like events like those in Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur to ever occur
again. Wiesel, now in his 80s, has twice spoken at Augustana College in recent years. Wiesel
says, “Sometimes we must interfere. When human lives are endangered, when dignity
is in jeopardy…whenever men or women are persecuted because of their race, religion
or political views, that place must—at that moment—become the center of the
universe.” Wiesel wrote two more novels, Dawn and The Accident, which are both
fictional stories of Holocaust survival.

Valentine's Day is the perfect day to watch & listen to the lyrics of this 1991 hit by the King of Pop,
Michael Jackson, who died in 2009. Jackson said that "Heal the World" is the song
he was most proud to have created.
How does that Michael Jackson song relate to The Grapes of Wrath?
And what about the title and the theme of WRATH?
And finally, what should you MOST REMEMBER about this novel and movie and final controversial chapter?
Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord:
He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored;
He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword:
His truth is marching on.
The hymn summons God to bring justice to those who have wreaked havoc over the land and over its people.
In other words, the hateful ways of the people are so great that only God can bring about vengeance.
In the context of this novel, "the grapes of wrath" may be interpreted as the greed, self-interest,
and selfish ways of the landowners and of the banks—all of which lead to the suffering of thousands
of migrant workers.The "grapes of wrath" is also a Biblical reference to the Book of Revelation, passage 14:19-20:
So the angel swung his sickle to the earth and gathered the clusters from the vine of the earth,
and threw them into the great wine press of the wrath of God.
Make no mistake, the squishing of "the grapes of wrath" is a violent and emotional image,
and one that is closely associated with the widespread oppression of a people and
with the darkest chapter in American history: slavery.
The "grapes" image also makes us think of the spilling of blood.
