The Holocaust was the most tragic, horrifying, and most miserable time in the 20th century. It took six million people’s life. The Holocaust or something similar to it should never happen again. Some of the details are mentioned in a memoir, Night, By Elie Wiesel, a Holocaust survivor.

The Holocaust is not an easy subject to talk about, let alone read an entire book or watch an full movie on the affair.

Holocaust, it was unforgettable and the most famous history in 1933-1945. There were 11 million people were killed by different ways. But, no one help them to say anythings, just keep silent....
The Holocaust was entitled as the worst act of genocide in history. Emotionally the Nazi 's tortured the Jews for years in concentration camps deprived them of their named and identity. Although there are many themes represented in the holocaust art and literature, struggle to maintain faith is present in the passage from Elie Wiesel 's Night, Judith dazzios "A day in the life of the Warsaw ghetto "and Alexander Kimels "The action in the ghetto of rohatyn"
The book Night by, Wiesel represented the holocaust. The book was a great way of expressing facts but it was hard for me to really see it. I think that the movie, The Boy In The Striped Pajamas explained the holocaust much more efficiently, and had a better understanding of emotion and gave the watcher a better visual for better comprehension.
The Holocaust. A short, unimaginable period, of just over twelve years, where almost 6 million Jews were murdered by the German nazis. Overall, 17 million victims were killed and thousands were forced to work in inhumane conditions and live in concentration camps. Elie Wiesel, a victim of the Holocaust, having been deported at the age of 12, is one of the few survivors who lived to tell their story. He has written many books and given many speeches about his experience, but they all convey a similar message, that we as a population, cannot remain silent but to stand up for the indifferences and the horrendous events of this world. He is very well known for his memoir “Night” and his speech “Perils of Indifference.” The message is much more prominent in his book “Night” rather than his speech. Real life examples are provided, it is more understandable, and it leaves you with something to think about. The length, connections, and abundant amount of description helps promote the message as well as the book tells us why we can never let such indifference as the Holocaust happen again.
