As an effect, Elie thought about it and got really sad because he knew he was going to die. As a result, Elie's
Group one had presented an analysis of father-son relationships in the memoir of Night. In their presentation, they talked about many aspects of this topic which I thought was very interesting. Firstly, this group had pointed out that in dire situations families come closer, and tend to depend on each other even more. I definitely agree with this statement. For example, in the memoir, Elie says: “I had no right to let myself die.
To Elie, his father is his only source of moral support, motivation, and trust. Until the very end, the kinship between Elie and his father allows them to stand strong together in all circumstances. As a result, familial ties are essential for Elie
When they first arrived at Auschwitz Elie and his father looked to each other for support and survival, Sometimes Elie’s father being the only thing keeping him alive. In their old community Elie’s father was a strong-willed and respected community leader, as the book went on you could see how the roles were becoming reversed he was becoming weaker and more reliant on Elie to take care of him. Their father son bond had always been strong and only grew stronger with the things they had to endure. “My God, Lord of the Universe, give me strength never to do what Rabbi Eliahou’s son has done” Elie was disgusted when he saw Rabbi Eliahou’s son abandon his father to help improve his chances of his survival he prayed he’d never do such a thing, but as his father becoming progressively more reliant on Elie he started to see his father as more of a burden than anything else.
And he had continued to run in front, letting the distance between them become greater.” Rabbi Eliahu’s son had shown that he valued self preservation over family commitment by making no effort to help his father through the run. He had decreed his father to be a burden upon himself and had left him behind which displays no sense of family
In the beginning Elie had little to no relationship with his father. His father did not have much time for Elie, because he was involved with the welfare of others than his own family.(Wiesel 4) In Chapter 3 after arriving at the camp Birkenau. Elie and his father gained a closer bond, because they are separated from the rest of their family and the two of them only have each other. (Wiesel 29)
Elie wanted to give up on because of how bad his foot was hurting, but with his father by his side running through the thick snow with him made him not give up. His father was out of breath and running out of strength. Elie kept moving with him (Wiesel pg 82). Rabbi Eliahou 's son had left his father behind because he thought he was to weak to go on… Elie saw what he had did and lied to Rabbi Eliahou saying that he hasn’t seen his son.
Elie’s father is an unsentimental man who is respected very much in the Jewish community of Sighet. Elie and the rest of the family has no connection whatsoever with their father, even though he is very well known in the Jewish community. Elie’s father is said to have “…rarely displayed his feelings, not even with his family…” (Wiesel 4). It shows his father is distant with his family.
Thanks to his father, Elie learned to take care of someone and how to survive by himself. You're family is going to be there for you, they are your blood and that bond between you all cannot be
Think of a circumstance where you were so hungry and thirsty, that you did not even care to think about your father anymore. That circumstance goes against common father-son relationships. The common father-son motif is where the father looks out and cares for the son. In the book “Night” by Elie Wiesel, he explains why the circumstances around a father-son relationship can change their relationship, whether it 's for the better or the worse. Since the book is about the life of Elie in a Nazi concentration camp, the circumstances were harsh and took a toll on multiple father-son relationships.
Family; a blessing, or a curse? In the book Night, Elie Wiesel offers many significant themes, but the question, “is family a blessing or a curse,” is one of the most prevalent and begging themes in the novel. During the novel, Wiesel often questions if he should try and keep his father around, or if life would just be better without him in the picture. “‘Don’t let me find him! If only I could get rid of this dead weight, so that I could use all my strength to struggle for my own survival, and only worry about myself,’ I immediately felt ashamed of myself, ashamed forever,” (Wiesel, 111).

They are separated. Elie runs after his father, and while the SS officers cause a commotion trying to catch him, both he and his father are able to escape to the other side, the ‘safe’ side.
