The book Night by Elie Wiesel teaches many different lessons about the human nature, human condition, and society. Elie is a boy that grew up in Sighet, Transylvania (present day Romania) during the time that the Nazi’s and Adolf Hitler came to power. After being placed in ghettos, the Jews of Sighet eventually got shipped off to the concentration camps, the first being Auschwitz/Birkenau. When the Jews first arrived at these camps, they made sure to keep their friends and family close, as well as they looked out for eachother. After months passed by, many began to grow weak due to the lack of food and the harsh conditions that they faced.

Elie Wiesel was a teenager that grew up in Sighet, Transylvania, who was taken from his home, along with his family, to a concentration camp in Auschwitz and then later moved to Buchenwald in 1944. In the camps, Elie had to survive the hardships and cruelty of the Holocaust. There were three main things that focused on survival, food, family, and most importantly, faith.

One way was that when Krystyna’s family heard about the “liquidation” happening in the ghetto, they were able to escape. They went down in the sewers, and lived there for about one year. But for Pavel, he didn’t get that lucky. Another reason is that when Pavel lived with thousands of Jews Krystyna only lived with about twenty and some died off. Pavel still lived in the ghetto where lots of Jews were located, but Krystyna lived in the sewers with little amounts of Jews.
As Sukarno once said, “The worst cruelty that can be inflicted on a human being is isolation.” In Night by Elie Wiesel, Anna Karenina, and The Old Guitarist by Pablo Picasso, the protagonists all struggle with isolation. Elie, Anna, and the old man are isolated from society because they are different than everybody else and unworthy of being included, which results in depression, death, and misery. Elie Wiesel, a Jew removed from his home and relocated to Auschwitz, is an outcast and is isolated from the rest of society because he is considered different. When Elie first arrives to the death camp, he describes his surroundings as “empty and dead” (Wiesel 47).
