In a span of 10 years, the Holocaust killed over 7 million people, that’s just as much as the population of Hong Kong. In the book Night, by Elie Wiesel, Wiesel shares his experience on how he survived the Holocaust and what he went through. How he dealt with the horrors and even to how he felt of his dad’s death and how he saw himself after it was all over.

In 1962, Oskar Schindler was awarded as “Righteous Among the Nations” for reviewing his effort putted in saving lives during the Holocaust, while putting himself in incredible risks (A Letter Written by Oskar Schindler’s Former Workers). After all, his life ended in Israel in1974.

For almost 80 years, historians and Jewish survivors have authored and published their firsthand accounts of the pain they were forced to endure. One such piece of literature is Elie Wiesel’s Night, a memoir illustrating his own experiences in German concentration camps, where every day was dominated by the impulse to stay alive. As Wiesel demonstrated repeatedly in his novel, during the Holocaust, self-preservation forced millions of victims to abandon family members and friends; commit desperate, sometimes suicidal, acts; and blinded many victims to the reality of their situations throughout the genocide. One of the most psychologically destructive aspects of the Holocaust was the forced isolation and selective targeting of Jewish victims, many of whom were killed or separated from one another. However,

Seventy four years ago, Elie Wiesel was taken from of his town and forced into brutal concentration camps, where he lost his family, was starved, whipped, beaten, and made to witness the executions of many innocent Jews. After three years of unimaginable struggle and hardship, he survived the Holocaust and went on to write Night, a memoir about his horrific experiences, and “Perils of Indifference”, a famous speech. Both of his works have the same powerful message: We cannot ever allow an atrocity such as the Holocaust to occur again. Elie’s message is very important, but which of his works conveys it more effectively? Night has few ways of effectively delivering Elie’s message.
Auschwitz was the Nazis largest concentration camp and operated from 1940-1945. In September 1941, the Nazis experimented in Auschwitz I with a new method of mass murder.

“For the dead and the living, we must bear witness.” - Elie Wiesel. Wiesel was a Jew, Holocaust survivor, professor, and writer. As soon as Elie stepped out of the concentration camps after being liberated, he could not find the words to portray what he had just witnessed. Speechless, Elie took the next few years to recollect his thoughts and opinions, and find the right words to describe the horrors beyond the walls of the many concentration camps he was put through. He had beard witness and he thought it was his obligation to speak for the few left living, and the millions dead.
