Family; a blessing, or a curse? In the book Night, Elie Wiesel offers many significant themes, but the question, “is family a blessing or a curse,” is one of the most prevalent and begging themes in the novel. During the novel, Wiesel often questions if he should try and keep his father around, or if life would just be better without him in the picture. “‘Don’t let me find him! If only I could get rid of this dead weight, so that I could use all my strength to struggle for my own survival, and only worry about myself,’ I immediately felt ashamed of myself, ashamed forever,” (Wiesel, 111).
Elie, once so faithful, is one of the first to lose faith in God due to the horrific sights he sees. After witnessing the bodies of Jewish children being burned, Wiesel writes, “Never shall I forget those flames that consumed my faith forever” (34). He quite understandably has begun to doubt that his God is with him following the sight of the supposedly chosen people’s bodies being unceremoniously burned. Elie, though, was perhaps not a member of the masses with this belief; in fact, some men were able to hold on to their beliefs despite these horrendous sights. Also near the middle of the book, Wiesel reflects on the faith of other Jews in the face of these events, saying that “some of the men spoke of God: His mysterious ways, the sins of the Jewish people, and the redemption to come.

Wiesel loved and cared deeply for his father and furthermore, as the Holocaust began to affect their lives, he felt responsible for his father, but ultimately, as his humanity was further tested, Wiesel also felt burdened by him. It was extremely evident that Wiesel cared about and loved dearly for his father because he made it evident in his actions. In Spring of 1944, World War II continued to rage near Sighet, Transylvania where Wiesel and his family resided in a small Jewish community.

It talks about the faith in humanity that seems to be depleting, little by little. With that being said, it goes hand and hand with the ending of the book perfectly. In a post-apocalyptic world an animalistic instinct seems to take over, causing everyone to no longer be rational thus making the killings more frequent. It becomes man vs. man, as well as man vs. nature or even to say, perhaps man vs. man and nature combined. Throughout the book until the end, it can be seen that all sense of humanity has been lost and when you thought it couldn’t get any worse, the son has witnessed his father’s death, making this book seem like a tragedy from cover to cover but something remarkable happens there too.

In the book “Night,” insanity is a major theme because the book tells us about the life of torture the jews were going through. Jews had it awful they were separated from their families, and they were beaten up. The book states, “we were wipped, all we had for food was bread and soup.” Night can be interpreted both literally and figuratively.

Night by Elie Wiesel shows when humans are put in horrible situations, the acts of selfishness greatly increase. The book shows that when humans are in crisis like the Holocaust everyone is desperate to survive, so they will do anything they can to get their basic needs.
