Night and Fog

Arne Brun Lie, Author, Robby Robinson, With W. W. Norton & Company $18.95 (254p) ISBN 978-0-393-02779-2
As a student in Norway in 1944, Lie, a member of the resistance, was captured and transported to Germany, into Nacht und Nebel , night and fog. He spent the duration of the war in three concentration camps. Writing with freelancer Robinson, he relates that he bore the psychic scars of that experience for 40 years, finally achieving catharsis on a sailing trip with two friends from Boston to his homeland. Lie, now a Massachusetts ``fish farmer,'' tells us that in exorcising his demons, he arrived at a deeper humanity, a belief that people should not divide the world into ``us'' and ``them'' but must work to create unity. Although the concentration camp story has been related many times, readers will find Lie's memoir especially moving and inspiring. (Jan.)
