Throughout the later years of his life, Moshe Bejski honored the man who saved him and many others, Oskar Schindler, through his work as a justice in the highest levels of Israeli courts, and his activism in remembering heroes of the Holocaust,
Everything Rudy does after that moment, when you know he’s going to die at the age of 14, everything is in the shadow of that.’ (Zusak, 2010).

Elie Wiesel, the author of the novel Night writes his own personal accounts of experiencing the Holocaust through the character Eliezer. Eliezer and his father rely on one another to survive through the Holocaust. Together they encounter the cruelty of the Nazis, the lack of compassion from the prisoners, as well as the difficulty of simply surviving. They remain strong together unlike other father-son relationships seen in the novel. A majority of the prisoners gravitate towards self preservation while Eliezer chooses to remain with his father.

After all, his life ended in Israel in1974.
Seventy four years ago, Elie Wiesel was taken from of his town and forced into brutal concentration camps, where he lost his family, was starved, whipped, beaten, and made to witness the executions of many innocent Jews. After three years of unimaginable struggle and hardship, he survived the Holocaust and went on to write Night, a memoir about his horrific experiences, and “Perils of Indifference”, a famous speech. Both of his works have the same powerful message: We cannot ever allow an atrocity such as the Holocaust to occur again. Elie’s message is very important, but which of his works conveys it more effectively? Night has few ways of effectively delivering Elie’s message.

Many Holocaust survivors, like Solomon Radasky, have lost their lives to the Nazis and died trying to live each day during the Holocaust.

To repeat what I’ve said, I have learned, by doing this report on Solomon Radasky, to be grateful for the life that I have right
