In the book ‘Night’ by Elie Wiesel, the reader reads about his journey in a concentration camp. Also, how being in the camp changed who he was as a person, and changed how he thought about lots of things. Not eating well enough and having to fight for survival can change any person drastically. This is witnessed through the duration of the book. He learns a lot about the world, and has to grow up way too fast, only being 15 years old. Elie Wiesel has to make a lot of difficult decisions that affect his life in lots of different ways.
In the novel Night by Elie Wiesel, courage is demonstrated throughout the novel by various characters. To begin, courage was shown when Elie’s father was too weak to continue working and was selected to be killed, so Elie ran after his father, determined not to lose him. Courageously he chased after his father, “...Several SS men rushed to find me, creating such a confusion that a number of people were able to switch over to the right-among them my father and I. Still, there were gunshots and some dead” (Wiesel 96). This piece of evidence shows that Elie rebelled against the SS to be with his father, which takes tremendous courage. Furthermore, in the earlier chapters of Wiesel’s novel he was beaten by a Kapo named Idek because he was in a bad mood. A French woman showed courage by giving Elie a mini speech in perfect German, a language no one knew she spoke, in order to pass off as an Aryan. Years later they meet
Elie Wiesel The holocaust, killed more than 6 million Jewish people just for being Jewish. Elie Wiesel was one of the lucky few to survive the holocaust. I’m going to explain what His life was like as a child, what his life was like as he was in the death camps, and what his life was like after the war was over and he was free again. Elie Wiesel became famous for writing about his experiences in the death camps.
Elie Wiesel was a young boy when he did survived the holocaust.. In his memoir Night, we follow his journey as a Jewish boy in a time where expressing your religion could mean life or death. Between living under the watch of Nazi regimes, trying to keep his father alive, and surviving the inhumanity of others, Elie’s had fought and lived through the genocide unlike any other. However, surviving the holocaust does not come without a price. Wiesel lived at the sacrifice of his faith and identity, which were left in fragments after the existence of evil that left a permanent scar on his life.
Throughout the novel Night, Elie and his father overcome many struggles. They overcame a lot of struggles most kids wouldn’t be able to go through most of the things they went through. The novel and the movie are very different though. The novel in my opinion is way better than the movie. Throughout the novel, Elie’s purpose in life changed from the beginning from the end. The novel is about a Jew and his father’s struggle through the holocaust and about them overcoming the struggles that they were faced. A few other characters in the novel are Yossi, Tibi and Moshi.
He is told by one of the ribbers that “I dreamed that I should travel to the fields of Spain and look for a ruined church... if I dug at the roots of a sycamore, I would find a hidden treasure.” This abandoned church is back where the boy started his journey. He had traveled miles and miles, been robbed twice, met a Alchemist, left his love, just to find out that he never had to travel anywhere to find his treasure. That's like climbing a mountain and realizing you're only halfway there.
He is a symbol of night and darkness. The boy in The Way to Rainy Mountain has similarities and differences to the men in “The world on the Turtles Back”. While the boy was at play with his seven sisters, the boy turned into a strong, aggressive, and violent bear, which symbolized the turning
In the world today, there are good kind hearted people, and there are also individuals who have immoral ulterior motives. But, to truly gain an insightful view of the person is to regard their actions under extreme conditions and pressure. While Elie Wiesel suffers during the Holocaust in his memoir Night, he witnesses the actions—whether good or bad, of the people he meets, and their motives that were never forgotten, as displayed in the novel. Since the Holocaust was an extreme event that caused pressure to make the right decisions, and suffer by the hands of the Nazis, or to act with neglect to the victims and be ridden with guilt, it can be said many Holocaust victims suffered, and some of the bystanders noticed and took action. One such
Courage is a word that used often or not, has it’s own meaning. Having courage to do the impossible is experienced in our everyday lives without even thinking, such as, taking out the trash, going to school, taking a step onto a unknown street, it happens to us all and can even have a dramatic impact on yourself, your future, and your life. In the book Night courage is experienced every single day of torture. Prisoners, such as Elie, face and fight for their own survival not knowing that their best weapon possessed in their hands was courage. Courage was a weapon, a very powerful weapon that could change your fate in an instant. Elie Wiesel showed the importance of courage not just during his life occurring memory but during our everyday lives, he shows and gives examples of how courage could be the savior to your most difficult times.
In Night by Elie Wiesel the author shows resilience is how people survive through difficult times. Elie shows resilience by never giving up hope on surviving and working hard to keep his life going to make it out of the war. A specific instance is when they have begun the run from one camp to another with the SS shooting people who were left behind “I kept repeating to myself ‘Don’t stop, don’t think, run!’ Near me men were collapsing into dirty snow. Gunshots.” (86) Elie was determined somewhat by force to keep going and to keep running despite how hard it was. He keeps repeating to himself the phrase “Don’t stop don’t think, run!” to show it was very important to him that he survives and that he needs to be resilient in the face of adversity and that simple sentences take less brain power because he needs to focus on staying alive and being resilient. He makes “Gunshots.” a one word sentence because it signifies the importance of how prevalent they are in his mind as he is running. All around him people are falling down or
People endure hardships every day, but it is how they choose to react to them that is most important. One such hardship was the Holocaust, which was the murdering of millions of people at the Nazi concentration camps throughout the course of WWII. Eleven million Jews, homosexuals, and gypsies were killed during this genocide. Every survivor of these concentration camps was forced to decide between hiding or vocalizing the crimes they had seen committed, and many couldn’t find the strength to speak up. Thankfully, there were those such as Elie Wiesel, who didn’t rest. He wrote a novel about his experiences and spoke out bravely against the crimes of the Nazis. He overcame the hardships that he faced and showed courage by writing his book, Night.
Since the beginning, humans have been held to certain standards regarding morality our rights as humans. History shows us leaders and rulers who, in their reign of power, have misused their power and attacked human’s rights to agency and liberty. By looking at all the wars, violence, criminals, and acts of immorality that humans have accomplished, many assume that humans are not good at fighting for the rights of others. However, in every war, and every act of violence, there is an opposing force. There will always be someone fighting for the good of others, whether it be one person or a whole army, which comes to show that humans are essentially good at fighting for the rights of others.
Loss of More Than Just Life During WWII, the Nazi´s used a certain tactic to abuse the Jews. It was called dehumanization. Dehumanization is the psychological process of demonizing the enemy, making them seem less than human and hence not worthy of humane treatment. In Elie Wiesel's Night, he shows dehumanization through loss of identity,loss of humanity, and desensitization.
