Gregor a teenaged boy, the lone survivor of his family is hiding from the Germans in the forest. He hides ina cave, where he meets a mysterious stranger who saves his life. He hides in the village, posing as a deaf-mute peasant boy. He hides among the partisans of the Jewish resistance. But where, he asks, is God hiding? And where can one find redemption in a world that God has abandoned? In a story punctuated by friendship and fear, sacrifice and betrayal, Gregor's wartime wanderings take us deep into the ghost-filled inner world of the survivor."

Review quote

"A remarkably affecting story." --"The New Yorker ""Like a Hasidic tale, "The Gates of the Forest "becomes one of those stories which man was created to relate . . . Its author is a greatly gifted artist." --Hugh Nissenson "Profoundly moving . . . In this book, all men are witnesses, all men are Jews. It is the condition of our lives, and the song and dagger of Elie Wiesel's art." --"The New York Times ""The novels of Elie Wiesel are a singularly impressive instance of how the creative imagination can surprise our expectations of what its limits should be." --Robert Alter
