Yes, they were beaten, burned alive and tortured with but the Natzi’s could never take away the memories of the Jews lives. They definitely tried, but it didn’t work. the memories they had before going to the camp helped them through the times at the concentration camp. It reminded them of their family 's, homes, neighbors and friends. What does night mean?
If only I could get rid of this dead weight, so that I could use all my strength to struggle for my own survival, and only worry about myself,’ I immediately felt ashamed of myself, ashamed forever,” (Wiesel, 111). This is just one example of the internal conflict going on endlessly within himself. When thinking of family, there are good times and bad times. When experiencing the moments that are extremely difficult for Elie and his father, he often thinks how great life would be if he could just get rid of his father’s dead weight. One evening when Elie’s father is very ill, the had of the block approaches Elie and tells him, “‘Don’t forget your in a concentration camp.
Elie started to act very different during and after the holocaust because he saw many things that would traumatized even the toughest of people. He's had to do things that were very messed things that the old him, before the holocaust, would never do. One of the most messed he had to do was watch small children being thrown into a fire and he had to listen to there plaintive din’s. Another thing that happened is he had to watch an emaciated kid be hung from the gallows. Something that not only him but everyone else had to do was he had to live in the ghettos.
In this time of my life I found out the harsh realities of life and how not everything is fair. In the book Night Elie has to go through something similar to this. In Ellie 's case it was much more rigorous he has to go through his whole family dying for no apparent reasons. This showed Elie how life can 't always be fair and to value everything when you have the

In the novel, Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand, Louie is tortured by being dehumanized and isolated while being a POW. Throughout the book, Louie is being treated poorly by his captors, but resisted giving up. One example is in chapter 17, Louie was being transported to a camp and is put on the ground. The text states, “Louie said something to Phil and immediately felt a boot kick into him...” (page 181). This shows Louie is being isolated because when he talks he gets hit as a result, causing him to be silent and not be able to talk to anyone to insure he doesn 't get hit.
Throughout this novella, the denied ability to have an exclusive title other than just a number, the critical circumstances of the feared concentration camp Auschwitz, and the disability to obtain a soul, all contribute to Elie’s incredulity towards his faith. Family titles and names are a prodigious gift from God. To acquire a name means that there is an importance for the individual’s life. Without names, an individual has no meaning and no worth. The SS men have replaced their captives original names for irrelevant numbers as shown in the following quote, “I became A-7713.
They even hang small child. Because of the horrific conditions in the camps, many of the prisoners begin to slide into cruelty, concerned only with personal survival. Sons begin to abandon and abuse their fathers. Elie himself begins to lose his humanity and his faith in God and in the
The German enforcers themselves are not mentioned beyond what they order and when they stand alongside Mengele. This may be an effect of how he saw life within the camps, where the Germans were often unknown, negative embodiments that forced them to labour.

By using the bell as symbolism, he shows that the Schutzstaffel are hated for what they force the prisoners to do.This exemplifies the poor state of Wiesel’s group, the
My source claims that poverty is a big problem in certain countries, yet most people aren't doing anything about it, they're too focused on themselves. Banksy claims that society is selfish and ungrateful. Mondays have become a big thing to be mad about anywhere, society seems to hate waking up early and doing work, yet in other countries people are dying due to lack of clean food. An argument that is linked with Idols of the tribe is society feeling like nothing is enough. Society feels that having to do tasks is just plain boring and makes life bad.
