The American Dream was thought of to be open and accessible to everyone who came to the United States.

This was the last straw for Equality and that’s when he lost it; “You fools! You fools!
Dave had many marks from the beatings he would get at home along with the burns from the stove incident. He also was caught stealing food during the school day so he wouldn’t starve to death, but since his principal found out and called his mother his punishments extended and he was starved and beaten up, “ By the end of the session, my nose bled twice and I was missing a tooth” (p.33). He was also sleep deprived, he said that one of his teachers “began by questioning me about my attentiveness. I lied, saying I had stayed up late watching television”(p.33).

At the very beginning of Elie Wiesel's Night, you meet Elie for and he wants to learn more about religion, but his father doesn't want him to. The city they live in, Sighet, was a little town that had no conflict ever, until things started to happen. Germans came into town and slowly drew the people out of town to camps. The first sign of Loss of Humanity is where Elie leaves his mother and sister forever. That changed Elie because he didn't know how to feel about this all happening in a matter of minutes.
During their ride in the rail cars to another camp they were not given food for three days so when they had the chance to get bread that was thrown to them, they would fight for it. Indifference can become extremely dangerous because once you start getting to out of hand because you become brain washed to what you’re doing to innocent people.

Who can know what Elie felt from this.
