In his knowledge that social belonging is the missing component to his own happiness, he confronts the people he secretly observed only to, once again, be met with fear and anger (94-95).
When Wiesel presents his childhood memories the crowds’ atmosphere takes an explicit change from being condescending to apologetic. “And so, once again, I think of the young Jewish boy … I have become throughout these years of quest and struggle.

He uses this change of tone in the audience to talk about the more serious subject of being indifferent and how it affected the world during the Holocaust. By Wiesel using stories of how his childhood was affected from others being indifferent it creates the call to action throughout the

The Significance of Loved Ones “‘The only thing that keeps me alive,” he kept saying, “is to know that Reizel and the little ones are still alive.
