The Holocaust was one of the most tragic events in history. It just so happened to be the cause of six million deaths.

Elie Wiesel addressed the transformation he underwent during the Holocaust in his memoir, Night. Wiesel changes vastly throughout the book, whether it is his faith in God, his faith in living, or even the way his mind works.
Words are the garb of people’s thoughts. Words can be very powerful and influential both in the society and among people, because whether or not someone choose the right words could change someone's life forever. Brilliant examples of power of words took shape in world’s history. A holocaust survivor, Elie Wiesel, who survived the concentration camp, wrote a book ‘Night’, as well as he introduced his acceptance speech to different people all around the world. He sought to restore the amicable and tolerate society where there is no place for such a word as ‘hate’. Many resplendent rhetoians followed his example and introduced their own powerful speeches that still have an impact on us today. Words - are tremendously powerful things, they are not just letters written on a sheet of paper; they can

I personally believe that Elie Wiesel is inaccurate with his claim. He states that “Remembering the Holocaust will help ensure that this type of atrocity does not occur in the future”. I strongly disagree with Elie’s claim because even if people understand this dramatic event, there is always going to be evil in the world and not everyone is going to care about the devastation of these events. Some people will wreck havoc among us, and we can’t stop it with an explanation of what happened last time. We as people need to stop obsessing over the past, and look into our futures, and how we will make the world a better place throughout the future.

Ever since humans came to be, they have done many things to ensure their survival. It’s the reason why we humans have evolved as much as we have. Humans have invented devices, accomplished many challenges, and have even relied on nothing but willpower to survive.
The severely cruel conditions of concentration camps had a profound impact on everyone who had the misfortune of experiencing them. For Elie Wiesel, the author of Night and a survivor of Auschwitz, one aspect of himself that was greatly impacted was his view of humanity. During his time before, during, and after the holocaust, Elie changed from being a boy with a relatively average outlook on mankind, to a shadow of a man with no faith in the goodness of society, before regaining confidence in humanity once again later in his life.
In the span of a lifetime one often faces many adversities that stand within their path. While some challenges will be overcome easily, others will take a lot more tenacity. When in the face of adversity it is key not to give up. One should always strive to persevere through their hardships, no matter how severe they seem to be. The author of the memoir “Night” Elie Wiesel, vividly describes his experiences in the concentration camp of Auschwitz. Elie went through extreme adversity within the camps of Auschwitz yet still managed to persevere. The experiences Elie went through in camp Auschwitz changed him as an individual spiritually; a boy who was once devoted to God ceased to believe in him. Elie also lost his sense of self identity, as his personality completely changes. During his internment at Auschwitz and Buchenwald Elie completely loses his innocence. As a result of the adversity Elie faces throughout his time at the Auschwitz camp, his identity is tarnished and eventually reformed.
Your existence is special, so you should be grateful for what you already have in life. If you put your mind to something, you will be able to overcome any obstacle. Keep fighting until you cannot fight any longer.

Elie was held captive in concentration camps from 1944-1945. During his time in the concentration camps, he became grateful for what he had, overcame countless obstacles, and more importantly kept fighting until he was free. [The Holocaust is very important to learn about because it can teach you some important life lessons.]
Imagine losing everything that you once had, your friends, family, all of your possessions, and everything else that once belonged to you. This is what happened to Elie Wiesel when his family was taken from him during the Holocaust. Wiesel lived in a small religious town. He was sent to Auschwitz and then sent to Buchenwald for his religion (Jewish). A little while after the war, he moved to France and then to the United States to become a professor at Boston University. Before he was ever sent to any concentration camps, he buried his watch at his old house in Sighet, Romania. Later, after the war he went back and unburied his watch, but then ended up leaving it there because he felt like a thief. He hoped that somebody would find it and then it would force them to recall the past. In “The Watch” by Elie Wiesel, he walks away from his watch to forget about the past and move on. He also moves on to forgive what others have done to him. The final thing that he does in this story is he reburries his watch to show others we should remember/not forget the past. Wiesel shows through the protagonists’ forgiveness, leaving his watch, and moving on to show that it’s you should forgive, but not forget what has happened to you.
