The Sarashina Nikki is an example of an early Japanese memoir, written in the Heian period . A genre of diary writing, Nikki Bungaku , emerged during this time.

Over the latter half of the 18th through the mid-20th century, memoirists generally included those who were noted within their chosen profession. These authors wrote as a way to record and publish their own account of their public exploits. Authors included politicians or people in court society and were later joined by military leaders and businessmen. An exception to these models is Henry David Thoreau 's 1854 memoir Walden , which presents his experiences over the course of two years in a cabin he built near Walden Pond .

Twentieth-century war memoirs became a genre of their own, including, from the First World War , Ernst Jünger ( Storm of Steel ) and Frederic Manning 's Her Privates We . Memoirs documenting incarceration by Nazi Germany during the war include Primo Levi 's If This Is a Man , which covers his arrest as a member of the Italian Resistance Movement , followed by his life as a prisoner in Auschwitz ; and Elie Wiesel 's Night , which is based on his life prior to and during his time in the Auschwitz, Buna Werke , and Buchenwald concentration camps.

“On January 16, 1898 the first son and third child was born to Charles B. and Beryl (Jones) Strang. I was born at home in Lindenwood, IL, and delivered by a midwife, Mrs. Albert Hackbert. The doctor, who was called Dr. Harry Davis, Sr., was from Monroe Center, IL; who about 14 years later bought a 2-cylinder Reo automobile from my dad with the stipulation that I come to stay with him and drive for him.

“I was named Charles Benton after my father. I had two sisters, Grace M. and Amy B. My other brothers and sisters that came along after me were Merrill George, Clinton, Clifford, Donald (who died about age 1 yr.), Molly Carol, Eva, Lyle, and Joyce. We were all born right in Lindenwood.

“My dad’s father came from France. Our name originally was LaStrange but later the ‘La’ and ‘e’ were dropped. Dad’s mother came from Alsace-Lorraine (the region between France, Germany, Belgium and Switzerland——now French). My dad was born in Byron, IL, in 1864. My mother was born in Rochelle, IL, in 1875. My parents were married about 1894 in Lindenwood by a Justice-of-the-peace, Cassius Perry. (The day he was married Dad shod a carload of Western ponies for $1 apiece and made $20 which was great money for a days’ work in that time.)
