Furthermore, when Eliezer finds out that the Nazi’s must have taken his father away and carried him to the crematory because his illnesses got the best of him due to his old age, he describes the situation afterwards: "There were no prayers at his grave. No candles were lit to his memory. His last word was my name. A summons, to which I did not respond." (106). When Elie considers his father’s last words, “A summons, to which I did not respond,” this displays that the deaths of all his family members have made him stone-hearted. Despite that, he has faced so much sorrow, his carelessness does not weep a single tear even once in his father’s remembrance. He is no longer the boy who only wanted to live for the sake of his father.The Nazi’s

“Yes, you can lose somebody overnight, yes, your whole life can be turned upside down. Life is short. It can come and go like a feather in the wind.”- Shania Twain. At times, it appears unviable for one’s life to transform overnight in just a few hours. However, this is something various individuals experienced in soul and flesh as they were impinged by those atrocious memoirs of the Holocaust. In addition, the symbolism portrayed throughout the novel Night, written by Elie Wiesel, presents an effective fathoming of the feelings and thoughts of what it’s like to undergo such an unethical circumstance. For instance, nighttime plays a symbolic figure throughout the progression of the story as its used to symbolize death, darkness of the soul,
Throughout the nation and our world people are suffering from this disease. Depression effects people of both genders, all ages, and any background. The history of mental illness, specifically depression were extremely helpful in today’s treatment and diagnosis. We know that all individuals are different and because of this, we can assume that each case of mental illness, more specifically depression, is unique in its own way as well.

“I told him that I did not believe that they could burn people in our age, that humanity would never tolerate it . . .” (Wiesel 33) These were the few words that were uttered by the bewildered Elie Wiesel when the inhuman intentions of the Nazis were made clear to all the Jews in the concentration camps: either work or be burnt. Despite the incident being real and happening right in front of Elie’s eyes, the cruel intentions of the Nazis were so extreme and inhuman that Elie had a hard time believing the magnitude of the situation; that everything going around him was just another nightmare.
Johann Schiller once said “It is not flesh and blood, but the heart which makes us fathers and sons”. But what happens when the night darkens our hearts our hearts? The Holocaust memoir Night does a phenomenal job of portraying possibly the most horrifying outcomes in such a situation.

During the second World War there many camps establish throughout both the U.S and Europe; these camps where consisted on concentration camps and internment camps which were both made for the purpose of imprisoning or holding many people. We learned of the concentrations camps from the book; Night by Elie Wiesel. This story is a first person account of the life within the confines of a concentration camp from the eyes of Elie himself. Both concentration camps and internment camps were terrible, unethical places during the war, but the suffering caused by them was not enclosed to the camps themselves.
Elie Wiesel is able to appoint the role of an antagonist to almost anybody, he does so on page sixty-seven of Night relaying the allegory of malice within a single man’s actions. It says, sometime around the middle of the book, victims of the concentration camps were on their way to the center of Germany. One of the workmen had decided to throw a piece of bread into the wagon the men were in. The men became violent for this piece of bread and fought to the death for some measly crumbs. ( Pg 67 Wiesel ). It later explains the workmen took a “spectacle” in the conflict. The word spectacle means a show or performance with a visual impact. To compare a tragedy like that to a splendid performance makes an incredibly abominable metaphor. The author

In both Night and ¨The in Group¨ it is demonstrated that crisis brings out the worst in people, because challenging situations put more pressure on people, resulting in poorer choices, and crisis additionally causes people to show selfishness.
The scientific study of the mind of a persona provides readers with a new key to the understanding of character. There are those who say that critics using the psychoanalytic approach treat literature somewhat like information about purchasers in therapy. Actually, I tend to believe that psychological approach is the best method for analyzing "The Road Not Taken" by Robert Frost.
