Elie Wiesel faced a lot of cruelty and a lot of inhumanity from man throughout his time in the concentration camps from other prisoners and the Nazis. In the memoir, Night by Elie Wiesel, cruelty and the theme of man’s inhumanity to man appears throughout the whole story and throughout Elie 's time within the concentration camps, in that it gives us examples of how the Nazis didn’t feed them enough, beat them, stripped them of their identities, made them run long distances, and how the Jew’s would be cruel to each other when they would take food from one another and beat others. One of the first examples of cruelty is from the Nazis towards Elie. The author wrote “Then I was aware of nothing but the strokes of the whip. One...Two…, he counted.” (Weisel 65), which shows us how the Nazi’s would beat the Jewish people within the concentration camps.
What do you think is the reason what makes those Jews treat other humans so inhumanity? In the book Night by Elie Wiesel, the Nazis treat those Jews so badly in many ways. Therefore, the Jews lose their faith as they want to survive in the camp due to the bad situation in the camp, and they were treated as subhuman which means they don’t need to be civilized anymore. First of all, the Jews act so inhumanity with others because they wanted to survive in the camp. A father and a son both die because they are fighting for a piece of bread in order to survive.
In Auschwitz where thousands of Jews were slaughtered daily is the witness to the emptiness that remains when man abandons all morality. It is a sight of apocalyptic proportions: grotesque block chimneys point their sad fingers to the heavens, while all that remains of the majority of the wooden barracks are their ruined foundations. The agony of the past is still snagged on the hurtful barbed wires, and a dreadful gloom stagnates over the camp, its spores infiltrating the hearts of people in the 21st century. The misery is irresistible. Wiesel writes with a power aimed at never letting people forget all that had happened in the Holocaust.
Why Did Jews Treat Each Other Inhumanely What do you think is the reason what makes those Jews treat other humans so inhumanity? In the book Night by Elie Wiesel, Jews are treated so badly by the Nazis in many ways. Therefore, they treat badly to other humans because the Jews lost their faith, they want to survive in the camp, and they were treated as subhuman which means they don’t need to be civilized anymore.

This man, in a wheelchair, was thrown out of the window and at this point in the movie I was filled with complete shock, I was wondering how anyone could see this man as useless. This physical removal had turned into the final solution as Jews were being shot at constantly and killed for the minor violations in the Nazi’s rules. When the Jews in Warsaw started a rebellion, I could see the final solution even clearer. Nazi’s did not see Jews as people but as a problem in their society that they needed to wipe out. Throughout the stage of the final solution it was hard to see Nazi soldiers with no remorse for the situation Jews were
Elie is a human, but “from the depths of the mirror, a corpse was contemplating me. The look in his eyes as he gazed at me has never left me” (Wiesel 115). He is tortured, is suffered from hunger, thirsty, and the departure from his loving ones. His humanity is gradually and almost destroyed by the Nazis and the Holocaust. Not only Elie, so do other people.
Jewish people were victim of the abuse that they received from the "Superior" Aryan race, they were sent towards concentration camp and were treated harshly and killed in cold blood, simply because of their religion, this was called the holocaust. Only a small amount of Jews survived the holocaust, a lot of stories from Jews who had suffered through the horror of concentration camp had surfaced and revealed the horror that they experienced, one of this Jews that spoke up is Joseph Sher.
These examples show the ignorance and lack of action by the people of Germany and surrounding countries, as well as the helplessness of the Jews during the Holocaust. While in the ghetto of Sighet, Elie witnesses the brutality the Hungarian police use to control the Jewish people. “The Hungarian police struck out with truncheons and rifle butts, to right and left, without reason… their blows falling upon old men and women….” (25) Finally, when riding the cattle car from Gleiwitz to Buchanan, citizens throw bread into the cars in order to watch the Jews fight for amusement. The quotes “They stopped and stared after us, but otherwise showed no surprise” (105) and “Dozens of starving men fought each other to death for a few crumbs. The German workmen took a lively interest in this spectacle” (105) display that the common public were cruel because they ignored Jewish persecution and even mocked it in a sense.
My previous knowledge about the ghettos was that it was a place that the Jews were placed until they were brought to the death camps. But as I saw in the film the ghettos were places that the living conditions were awful and mostly everyone was malnourished and lacked basic needs. The ghettos were just as bad as the death camps as the conditions were unsanitary and unfit for people. The only difference between the death camps and the ghettos were the systematic killing that would take place. The Jewish people were suffering and the Nazi regime continued to project that it was the Jewish people causing the problems and that they were the major issue even within the
Elie started to act very different during and after the holocaust because he saw many things that would traumatized even the toughest of people. He's had to do things that were very messed things that the old him, before the holocaust, would never do. One of the most messed he had to do was watch small children being thrown into a fire and he had to listen to there plaintive din’s. Another thing that happened is he had to watch an emaciated kid be hung from the gallows. Something that not only him but everyone else had to do was he had to live in the ghettos.
