Dear (student names):
Thank you for your kind letter. I always enjoy hearing from young people, and your letter was no exception.
I am moved to learn of the effect that my memoir, Night, had on you. As a writer, nothing is more important. From your words, it is obvious that you are very sensitive to the darkness of which I wrote.
If Night has helped you better understand the tragedies of the past, I am grateful. It is my belief that one who hears a witness becomes a witness in turn. May you use your knowledge and understanding to educate those who are unaware.
Keep learning and reading, more and more.
With best wishes to you,
