The soldier does not react to the death of his fellow comrade, and just walks away and continues looking for a way above ground. This asserts the underlying theme of how horrific war really is, and how it can really change a person. The fact that the dead soldier is left there for ten days, and how the other soldier did not have any reaction to seeing a dead troop addresses the message that war is mentally damaging. These soldiers have to see their friends dead on the ground, and they can not do anything about it and have to keep
Never shall I forget those things, even were I condemned to live as long as God Himself. Never. ”(Wiesel, 34) This was written at the end of the first day. It really shows how dehumanization can make someone feel. After all that the men, women, and children have gone through they never thought of revenge, and only thought of bread.
He does not understand why the holocaust happened, and “will never forget these things, even if I am condemned to live as long as God himself.” In spite of all the misery that happened to him, Wiesel is still, incredibly, a believer.
“ Do not pray for an easy life, pray for the strength to endure a difficult one,” - Bruce Lee My hook relates to the book Night, a book by Elie Wiesel who is a Holocaust Survivor who had suffered in a concentration camp with his father, because it is saying how you can’t pray for an easy life, you have to be strong enough to live through it. It is about horrors of the Holocaust in first person, and how Wiesel and his father endured it. In Night, Elie and his father’s relationship changes throughout the book because in their home town of Sighet, Elie and his father are distant but they become much closer when they get deported. By the end of the book, they are drifting apart because Elie’s selfishness takes a hold of him.
The most crucial part to any book is how it ends, in the case of the novel Brave New World it was a disappointment in the fact that nothing in society has been resolved. Aldous Huxley wrote about Bernard Marx and John the most throughout the book and there end was the opposite of what was had hoped for them. In the final chapter both characters went separate ways, Bernard was preparing to leave the World State and go to Falklands with Helmholtz. As for John he left readers feeling glum that he decided to commit suicide after realizing that he needed to be purified from the sins of coming to the World State instead of staying on the Indian Reserve. These characters both had a similar mindset when it came to how they preserved society.
The punishments that Frank Abagnale received made him think about what he did and regret for the decisions he took. He was arrested in Montpellier, France, and got a sentence of one year which he had to serve in Perpignan’s prison where he was stripped of all his belongings. His imprisonment in France was awful because he spent six months in total darkness, he wasn’t able to talk to someone; he was sleeping in the hard floor, and living in his own waste. Frank said that “[It] was not a term in prison, it was an ordeal designed to destroy the mind and the body” (Abagnale). These point of his live can be described as a rebirth.

This only compounds his alienation from civilian life, nothing was the same, he was away from the trenches, but still lay in them. All that Paul knew and loved before had become useless to him, none is needed in battle, therefore was forgotten. Remarque invokes an end for Paul in chapter 12 of the novel, he, the last soldier alive out of his troop of seven men. Germany became desperate and revolts as the war comes to an end.

Anthem is about a society that basically has no freedom for the people to do whatever they want. Everyone in the book is referred to as “We” or “Them”. No form of independence is shown, until one special boy decides it is time for a change. Both books show survival and people having to push through the struggle.
Being the last sentence of the book, and out of all the passages I highlighted this one stood out to me and described Wiesel’s experience in just a few simple sentence. He looked at himself for the first time in many years, and did not recognize himself he saw a different person. This showed me that the concentration camps changed him he was a different person inside and out. The events that occurred to him had scared him so much that the man he saw in the mirror wasn’t him, but one who had been drained of life that looked lifeless from the events occurred in the concentration camps. He was weak and this whole passage embodies his weakness and the whole point of the concentration camps.
They tatoo a number on their arms and that becomes their new identity. Eliezer becomes known as A-7713, the Nazis don’t even bother learning his real name. It 's like they are no longer a person but instead an object owned by a man. The Nazis take away their identities and without an identity it is hard to feel as if you are even human anymore.
This excerpt is relevant to Wiesel’s biggest fear which is that the world has not learned or has simply forgotten about the Holocaust. The line “Never shall I forget…” (Wiesel, 34) is reiterated to show how important remembering is to Wiesel. This also pertains to Wiesel 's “big idea” which is that his purpose for writing Night was to never let anyone forget about the Holocaust. He hopes that this memoir helps prevent another genocide like this, and helps motivate people to stand up to injustices.
Elie loses faith in god when his father and him had to leave the rest of their family when they were at the concentration camps. He had a hard time in all the camps, and the fear of being killed shows as the main conflict. In conclusion the main conflict is all the camps he has to go to along with the fear of being killed. There is also how he loses faith in god and humanity because he thinks that this problem won’t be fixed and he will always have to live in the
