- In Elie Wiesel?s novel Night, the main character Elizer goes through a series of changes. Elizer, "Elie", is born in a town in Transylvania Hungary by the name of Sighet in 1928. Elie lives in a very highly orthodox Jewish family, and this shows in many of his personality traits and interest as a young man.
- Night by Elie Wiesel is a memoir of the author’s experiences during the Holocaust, as a prisoner in Nazi concentration camps. Although the book to the naked eye seems to simply by another horrific depiction of life in Nazi concentration camps, it was not only written to show the horrible truths about the Jewish experience during this time.
- “Never shall I forget that night, the first night in camp, which has turned my life into a long night… never shall I forget that smoke…” Night doesn’t always represent the absence of light, but is a symbol for the absence of knowledge. Elie Wiesel’s book Night is a true account of what the Holocaust did, not only to many Jews but to humanity as well.
- this book is so very true and so well written that it makes you feel some of the pain and hardships that he has to go through. As you can see this nonfiction book is objective writing due to all the facts and information that it has in it.
- Note: Although Night is not necessarily a memoir–as discussed in the “Overall Analysis and Themes” section–I will often refer to it as a memoir, since that is the genre which closest approaches the mixture of testimony, deposition and emotional truth-telling that is in Night.
- Elie describes the events that are occurring around him and his profession. The Jews from the town of Sighet are relocated (against there will) to the Jewish ghettos. Elie had to leave all of his belongings and possessions behind. They were transported from their desired residence to the ghettos by cattle trains.
- Night by Elie Wiesel is a story of one of the few Holocausts survives. He and the many others are being persecuted for their religious beliefs. In the Jewish community of Sighet everyone was in disbelief for what was in store for them. Then the acts of cruelty to each other in time of need, to hoping to survive one day to the next.
- a child when it all happened. The book starts off as a little boy that is 12 years old his name is Eliezer he and is three other siblings Hilda the oldest girl then Bea and the baby of the family Tzipora all lived with there mother and father they were a small little Jewish family.
- ? -Elie Wiesel The Holocaust-the mass murder of European Jews by the Nazis during World War II. It was the unthinkable, the horrific murder of million Jews and millions of civilians of different ethnic and racial backgrouds. It was average men entering the German army and turned into Nazis, cold-blooded killers.
- In Elie Wiesel’s Night, he recounts his horrifying experiences as a Jewish boy under Nazi control. His word are strong and his message clear. Wiesel uses themes such as hunger and death to vividly display his days during World War II. Wiesel’s main purpose is to describe to the reader the horrifying scenes and feelings he suffered through as a repressed Jew.
- There are many themes in the novel Night, by Elie Wiesel; some of these include loss of faith, father-son relationships, food and hunger, and disbelief. One of the most interesting theme is the father-son relationship. This theme can be seen throughout the novel with many fathers and sons.
- This whole situation started out simple enough. The men and myself first moved into this little town called Sighet. The people there seemed so naive. None of them realized what was about to happen; none of them realized what happened when the Germans move into town.
- The book Night, written by Elie Wiesel, is a fictional book based on one of the author?s horrifying life experiences. It is set during WW II at various concentration camps in and around Germany, from the end of the year 1941 to the beginning of 1945. Starting from the times people are forced out of their homes, their lives are changed drastically, both physically and emotionally.
- An image that secures itself in Elie’s memory is that of Rabbi Eliahou’s son’s leaving the Rabbi for dead. The father and son are running together when the father begins to grow tired.
- One of them, Moche the Beadle, returned with stories of Jews being slaughtered and babies being tortured and used as firing practice. The stories were dismissed as crazy and they told themselves that they were all safe.
- Elie’s story took place while he was a very young boy, approximately 14. His friend (town beggar) Moshe, had been somewhat helping with his studies until all the foreigners were forced to leave the town. Sneaking back in several weeks later Moshe told of the stories that he had witnessed.
- Wiesel’s Night is about what the Holocaust did, not just to the Jews, but by extension, to humanity. People all over the world were devastated by this atrocious act, and there are still people today who haven’t overcome the effects. One example of the heinous acts of the Germans that stands out occurs at the end of the war, when Elie and the rest of the camp of Buna is being forced to transfer to Gleiwitz.

- Faster, you swine, you filthy sons of bitches (81). This is an example of the physiological abuse and verbal abuse that the S.S. officers had towards the Jews. In the book Night, by Elie Wiesel, the theme of prejudice and inhumanity was strongly revealed.
- In the middle of this century, the South was sharply divided along racial lines. Class distinctions and prejudices left over from the era of slavery caused racial tension as blacks fought for equal rights. Violations of this class system were the basis for Harper Lee’s novel, To Kill a Mockingbird.
