In his childhood, Elie Wiesel was a boy who expects more of God then human beings. He spends lots of time studying the Talmud and dreams one day he can study the Kabala. “By day I studied Talmud and by the night I would run to the synagogue to weep over the destruction of the Temple” (Night 3). At that time Elie believes God would protect his people from anything and God is everything and everywhere. However, because of all these terrible things happening in the concentration camp that filled Elie with disappointment and anger, Elie realizes his faith is not unadulterated any more in the article.
He is “cultured and rather insentimental man”. He does not reveal his emotion but “wept” when the Nazis invaded. During the Holocaust he and his son Elie become close and this gave him courage to survive as long as he could but unfortunately loses his faith and then got very ill after the “death march” and dies in the first night at Buchenwald.
At this point this becomes crucial, because the Nazi oppression in the concentration camps makes it harder for any relationship. It is shocking to Elie on many occasions, the cruelty sons show their fathers in many of the barracks. He says of this particular boy, “I saw one of thirteen beating his father because the latter had not made his bed properly. The old man was crying softly while the boy shouted, “If you don’t stop crying I shan’t bring you any more bread. Do you understand?” This event serves a warning to Elie not to lose his sense of compassion towards his father so that they can remain close and continue supporting each other because without each other neither of them will survive.
In the novel Night Elie Wiesel shares his persona memories of the Holocaust. In which he experienced the loss of friends, and family. The evil caused by the Germans against the Jews severely shattered Elie’s hope and belief in the goodness of human beings. Although Elie retained his views throughout his life, the novel Night shows that Wiesel was able to restore his faith in others. At the end of the novel Wiesel states that the image of himself that he saw in the mirror compelled him to keep moving forward in life and to resist the impulses of
Although Towards the end of the book he lost his faith in god the only reason he kept pushing and worked harder to survive was because of his father. He did not want to die and leave him alone because he thought the only reason his father wanted to stay alive was because of him. They helped each other and watched each other’s backs while the Nazi inhumanly tortured and beat them. It was during World War II where the Germans mass murdered The Jewish people. Even though it was everyone for them self’s in the concentration camps some managed to successfully help and work with each other to survive, sharing food and other things.
Simply because I feed it more. The above parable is one that was explained to my father and I during a bible study some years ago by a family friend named Craig. The two dogs represent good and evil, God and Satan, and their never-ending fight over an individual's soul. My father seems to have really taken this to heart as he mentioned it several times throughout our two hour conversation this evening. It seems that my dad has not put too much thought into day-to-day ethical thinking, but does try to live his life as God would expect him to.
A man that he and his father seem to know tells his father that Elie is, "very weak,very hydrated" (Wiesel 45) showing that he changed from looking virile to looking weak and unhealthy. Eliezar becomes weaker as time passes by making him look skinny and practically dead. But as he begins to look weaker, he begins to become stronger mentally. He starts to realize how the camp works and how he could survive the camp. Towards the end of the book, the men are freed from the camp and Elie becomes sick.

In 1944, the Germans ordered Rumkowski to announce that Germany was in need of workers to repair damage. These ‘workers’ were not sent to work; they were sent to be exterminated at a nearby concentration camp called Chelmo. After many transports, it was then decided that the remaining survivors would be sent to Auschwitz. A combined number of 145,000 Jews were killed at the concentration camps. Rumkoswki believed that he was safe from death after all of his collaboration and hard work with the Nazis, so he voluntarily boarded a train headed for Auschwitz with his family.
The master of deceit tempted him, but yet he was an example of obedience by refusing to deviate from what He knew was right. An example of this obedience is when he was facing agony in Gethsemane, when he was enduring much pain, even then he was obedient to the lord by saying, “Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.” Luke 22:42 I would like to close with a scripture that President Hinckley used in a talk in 1995. The scripture is Isaiah 1:19-20 and it
