Gregor—a teenaged boy, the lone survivor of his family—is hiding from the Germans in the forest. He hides in a 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.

Summary: "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.
