In the book Night by Elie Wiesel, Elie experiences horrific events at the hands of the Nazi Party. Opposite of what might be expected, rather than be cruel and hate the world, Elie instead takes his experiences and turns them on the positive side. He uses his tragic and horrific experiences to write the book Night and teach the world about what happened during the Holocaust. Elie’s goal was that we all remember and learn from what happened. The end result was that he won the Nobel Peace Prize for this book.
During the Holocaust in 1933 survivor Elie Wiesel says" When human lives are endangered, when human dignity is an jeopardy national borders and sensitivities become irrelevant" (Wiesel18). Adolf Hitler and his Nazi party were responsible for the Holocaust and millions of deaths of the Eastern Europe and Germany. The Nazis believed that the Jews were responsible for economic struggle known as The Depression. I think the Holocaust was a horrible thing that happened and it was wrong for innocent people to have suffered for no reason just because Hitler wanted them vanished. One key lesson in the book Night is, faith can be changed throughout difficult times.
In stressful situations or in times of war, mankind has tossed out its caring nature and turn inhuman or cruel in its place, abandoning all conscience. In Elie Wiesel’s memoir Night, he distinctly recalls and describes the inhumane treatment of Jews during WWII, and how he survived. Through his memoir the reader can visualize the world around Elie, through his eyes, and learn how cruel people can be to each other, all because of some sort of small difference among them. In Elie’s writing, he claims to be less of literary writer, but more of a witness to the horrific scenes he saw and believes that if he wants to do something about it, he will have to tell the world so that “They don’t forget the villains for they done”. When events like the
The Holocaust is one of the if not the most cruel punishment for a single race in recorded human history. No one can truly understand the hardships that a man or woman had to go through to survive it. Society is continuously pretending to understand the pain that people similar to Eliezer had to go through. It is impossible to understand the horror of the Holocaust but in the novel Night by Elie Wiesel through the change of language it makes it a bit more realistic the effect the Holocaust has on a person. The form of medium Elie Wiesel uses helps the reader understand through a bias the day to day Eliezer had to suffer through.
In the book Night, we the readers witness the hardships and struggles in Elie’s life during the traumatic holocaust. The events that take place in this story are unbearable and are thought to be demented in modern times. In the beginning Elie is shown as a normal teenage Jewish boy, but the events are so drastic that we the readers forget how he was like in the beginning. Changes were made to Elie during the book, whether they were minor or major. The changes generated from himself, the journey, and other people.
Akiba was a man in the camp with Elie and his father. Akiba started to lose his faith, believing that God was no longer with them. He was so pessimistic that he knew he would not pass the selection so he said, “In three days, I’ll be gone… Say Kaddish for me.” (77) (Kaddish is the prayer to mourn) Since Akiba could not find his own purpose, he gave up, which ultimately led to his death.
As evidenced by the constant selections and hangings, death was always striking, but still had an air of mystery, with the Jews not fully knowing when they would be killed. Wiesel proves that mortality is simultaneously certain and uncertain by utilizing the deranged events Elie, the novel’s protagonist, faces in the Holocaust. Eventually, everyone will die, as immortality is not a human trait,
Will Human Rights ever be achieved? Will society forever go on, day to day, knowingly contributing to the violation of people’s inalienable rights? Human rights are something that many activists have tried to achieve til this day but failed. The book Night by Elie Wiesel is a detailed memoir, of the tragedy he and many other endured during the Holocaust. In the book, Night, Mr. Wiesel and family were Jewish, during the holocaust they were taken from their home and transferred to several concentration camps.
After seeing how God had not helped the Jews at concentration camps, Elie started to lose his faith in God. He lost faith in God’s justice. He couldn’t understand why God would let such horrible things happen to innocent people. Eventually, Elie had decided, “not to fast” (23). He did this for many reasons.
If people had listened and believed them, they could have been saved a whole world of pain and suffering. Near the end of the book, Elie was looking backward and forward all at the same time saying, “if we forget, we are guilty,
Night is a book written by Elie Wiesel in which he tells his stories and experiences in the Nazi concentration camps at Auschwitz and Buchenwald during the Holocaust and Second World War. I would recommend Night because it’s written by someone who felt the horror of the Nazism in his own skin, so the book really shows the reality of the death camps and the atrocities that happened there. It is important to study and know about the Holocaust because it’s a terrible event which, in a historic perspective, occurred not long ago and its effects are still present in today’s society in such a negative way. The Holocaust did not only affect the people who died at the concentration camps, it also affected the survivors and the rest of the whole
Never Ending Darkness The Holocaust was is one of the most gruesome events to take place in history. In the novel, Night by Elie Wiesel readers obtain a first hand experience of all the unexplainable horrors of the Holocaust. Night begins at the end of WWII and gives a frightening account of the Nazi death camps. This memoir is a powerful read showing the internal struggles a young teenage boy goes through.
Night by Elie Wiesel is a memoir about a boy’s terrifying experiences during the holocaust during the years of the 1940’s. God created the world only for it to be destroyed by such hatred. In times of trauma and distress,one may begin to question and doubt their faith in the power of a God. On the contrary, in the event that there is a situation that demonstrates pure evil,such as Wiesel’s perspective in The Holocaust, there is always a reason for all that happens. As mentioned in an article titled “How Could God Have Allowed the Holocaust?”
The book night, by elie wiesel is an autobiographical novel of this the horrible experience in the nazi German concentration camp. Night is a very powerful novel that creates an influential impact upon the readers. The book makes the events very real and personal as if it were you who experienced it. The book gives us a very brief visualization of the holocaust, the time period where the death of 11 million people took place, 6 million of them jews and an estimation of 1.1 million were murdered children. This is one of the darkest eras in human existence, and the greatest crime imposed upon people by people.
He overly relies on God to solve every problem he encounters, not believing himself to be able to solve them. His lack of drive and overdependence on God causes problems to arise again and again. The Israelites’ disobedience of God’s commands and their constant complaints about their conditions in their wilderness are such examples of Moses’s incompetence when it comes to exerting control over the Israelites. Although Moses is the one that leads them out of Egypt, he does not gain the hearts of the
