Eliezer Weisel had a peaceful young soul, spending day and night learning Kabbalah and Talmud like if he didn’t, he’d have no reason to continue breathing. But at the age of fifteen, he was removed from his home in the Jewish ghetto abruptly, never to return again. While he and many others in his small town of Sighet were warned about the death and destruction to come, no one listened. When Eliezer Wiesel finally made it out of the dehumanizing death camps, that small worshipper who had gone in, would never come back out. Eliezer Wiesel is a survivor of the Holocaust; a hero.
Elie Wiesel, a Holocaust survivor and Nobel laureate, talks about the significance of the rescuers of the Holocaust. He gives us an important piece of advice when he says, “Let us not forget, after all, that there is always a moment when the moral choice is made. Often because of one story or one book or one person, we are able to make a different choice, a choice for humanity, for life”. Having been through such a traumatizing experience, Wiesel gives us a critical piece of advice: we as people are given the choice to do the right thing and stop hate all over the world. Muhammad Ali has done just that.
Different Perspectives "The only thing you sometimes have control over is perspective. You don 't have control over your situation. But you have a choice about how you view it" (Pine, n.d.). This quote by Chris Pine (n.d.) emphasizes that though a person 's circumstance cannot be controlled, their response to it certainly can. People have the power to take any situation and deem it positive or negative based on the lens through which they view it.
Night Critical Abdoul Bikienga Johann Schiller once said “It is not flesh and blood, but the heart which makes us fathers and sons”. But what happens when the night darkens our hearts our hearts? The Holocaust memoir Night does a phenomenal job of portraying possibly the most horrifying outcomes in such a situation. Through subtle and effective language, Wiesel is able to put into words the fearsome experiences he and his father went through in Auschwitz during the Holocaust. In his holocaust memoir, Night, Elie Wiesel utilizes imagery to show the effect that self-preservation can have on father son relationships.
In Eli Wiesel´s the ¨Night¨ the internal conflict is within himself and his struggle to maintain his belief in god. In the beginning of the story Elie writes ¨Eight words spoken quietly, indifferently, without emotion.¨ what he is talking about is the order an SS officer gave which was ¨Men to the left! Women to the right!¨, these ¨eight words¨ changed his life forever, because that was the last time he saw his mother and two sisters. A bit later in the story he writes about a question he was asked by a strange man, the question was ¨Here, kid, how old are you?¨ Elie answered 15, this enraged the man he said ¨No. Eighteen.¨. Elie didnt know this yet but this stranger saved his and his fathers lives by telling them to lie about their age.
Elie Wiesel has a somber mood in the text ‘Night’. He does this by using imagery and symbolism, Wiesel does this so curiously, as not to plunge into a sad mood, but slowly eases the reader into the despair. The author describes a boy as “angel faced” that slowly moves towards a tragic ending. The angel is a power symbol throughout all cultures, and using that symbol to be placed onto a boy, and expressed through imagery creates a sense of dread and despair. Eliezer depicts a young boy to a “sad faced angel”, in the sense that the boy seems holy, and innocent, yet being in a labor camp, reinforces our idea that the Nazis have no respect for anything good or sacred in the world.
Throughout the novel Night, Elie and his father overcome many struggles. They overcame a lot of struggles most kids wouldn’t be able to go through most of the things they went through. The novel and the movie are very different though. The novel in my opinion is way better than the movie. Throughout the novel, Elie’s purpose in life changed from the beginning from the end.
Attention. Attention is something all authors desire to have from the audience when reading his or her book. Attention can be drawn by the author is various ways whether it is through the writing itself or the style. In particular, Elie Wiesel does this in his memoir, Night, to drawn the attention out by style. In this memoir Wiesel gets the attention of his audience through the variety of sentence structure throughout his book that helps emphasize many moments that had occurred in his life and journey.
The entire world was so ignorant to such a massacre of horrific events that were right under their noses, so Elie Wiesel persuades and expresses his viewpoint of neutrality to an audience. Wiesel uses the ignorance of the countries during World War II to express the effects of their involvement on the civilians, “And then I explain to him how naive we were, that the world did know and remained silent. And that is why I swore never to be silent when and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation” (Weisel). To persuade the audience, Elie uses facts to make the people become sentimental toward the victims of the Holocaust. Also, when Weisel shares his opinion with the audience, he gains people onto his side because of his authority and good reputation.
