372 Words2 Pages

Hope is a powerful thing; more powerful than death itself. Night, by Elie Wiesel, is about a jewish boy who is put into a concentration camp during the Holocaust. Elie doubted his faith to survive but had others to lean on during the hardship. Elie had the support of others as a sense of hope to survive the long, cold nights, with little food and water. The character that helped Elie the most would most likely be his dad. His dad not only helped him, but Elie has to start taking care of him because he gets very ill.” Don't let yourself be overcome by sleep, Eliezer. It’s dangerous to fall asleep in snow”(Wiesel,88). This was Elie’s dad warning him to get up or you will die. If his dad wasn’t around, he would’ve more than likely died that night.
