Elie Wiesel in Night says to take care of one another is consequential for survival. Elie shows this during the sickness of his father. He cannot bear to see his father die, so “[Elie] fought [his] way to the coffee cauldron like a wild beast. And [he] succeeded in bringing back a cup. [Elie] took one gulp.
Surviving the Holocaust Elie Wiesel went through one of the hardest periods of time any man has ever encountered, and lived through to tell about it. The Holocaust was truly one of the most horrific events of discrimination, persecution, and genocide. Elie reveals his story through Eliezer in his novel Night. Some would expect a man who has gone through such terrible times to lack in perseverance and kindness. However, Wiesel displays his willpower, faith, morals, and bond to his father throughout this dark and eye-opening book.
Empathy; the ability to understand and share the feelings of another. An admirable trait, it often coincides with one's resilience. In Elie Wiesel’s Night, he recounts his experiences as a young man during the Holocaust. It is a journey of suffering and survival, where the true devastation of the Holocaust is brought to light. Elies great empathy for his father shaped his resilience which allowed him to survive.
Justino Gonzalez ELA 11 Unit 2 Assignment 4 My Connection with the novel Night by Elie Wiesel The novel Night is a work by Elie Wiesel, published in 1956, about his experience with his father in the Nazi German concentration camps at Auschwitz and Buchenwald in 1944–1945, at the height of the Holocaust toward the end of the Second World War. The novel is very emotional and has touched the hearts of many, to the point where it won the Oprah’s Book Club award. This book has definitely made me reflect a lot and I feel that I can relate to it in different ways.
Approximately six million Jews died during the Holocaust and about three million survived. Jewish prisoners during the Holocaust went through many horrific circumstances. They had to bear starvation, overexertion, beatings, torture, and much more. Millions of innocent people died in the concentration camps. Night, by Elie Wiesel, and Life is Beautiful, directed by Roberto Benigni and Vincenzo Cerami, portray the hardships and tortures of the concentration camps by showing how the Jews held onto their beliefs and faith in order to survive.
Themes in a story help to describe what the book is about. It does this in the book Night by helping describe what World War 2 was like for the Jews. It also helps to see what the people in the camps went through. My two themes from night are imprisonment and survival. The first one I will talk about is imprisonment, then i’ll talk about survival.
I learned a lot of new information while reading Night, there were many things I didn’t know about the Holocaust before that I know about now. I never knew much about the conditions of the camps or how the people were treated there, I just knew that they were dreadful places. Now I can have an image of the camps in my head, what it looked like for the people who had to live in these horrendous camps. They committed so many execrable acts on people, they performed experiments on people, murdered whoever they wanted, starved people and many more gruesome things. I didn’t realize how bad the conditions really were and how badly the people were treated.
The Holocaust was the wide scale murder and extermination of Jews during the Nazi Regime. The Holocaust was undoubtedly a world-changing reality of World War II. Approximately six million Jews died during the Holocaust. Jews were placed in concentration (extermination) camps and forced to work until their subsequent, often inevitable, death.
