Pap is a free man who takes it for granted especially when he takes his anger on African Americans and his own son. He isn’t well educated but this quote by Huck is a hint towards Paps good side. “For what you want, above all things, on a raft, is for everybody to be satisfied, and feel right and kind towards others”. Huck never had that great of an education so how is this coming from his mouth. His dad must’ve told him about these things, since Pap has made many mistakes in life he has a good side to himself.

In the book Night, Elie Wiesel offers many significant themes, but the question, “is family a blessing or a curse,” is one of the most prevalent and begging themes in the novel. During the novel, Wiesel often questions if he should try and keep his father around, or if life would just be better without him in the picture. “‘Don’t let me find him!

What Hans does every night shows us how much of a great father and a loving dad he does for his children. Liesel benefits from this because of the soothing of Hans taking away the nightmares and also it gives Liesel an idea of what a father really is and what they really sacrifice. Although fathers make sacrifices every day for their children, the usual fathers never wake up in the middle of their sleep to go nourish their children, but with Hans he is a different kind of person in that sleep doesn’t matter to him; what matters to him is his daughter and his loved
