According to Albert Kropp, “Two years of shells and bombs - a man won’t peel that off as easy as a sock” (87). When a man is in the war for two years, the war will become a part of him, because of the horrors and terrors he has faced in the field. Two years of the war isolates a man from civilian life, and eventually, the war will identify him, causing it to be very difficult to make the transition of war life back to civilian life. Paul reflects back to the innocence the war has taken from him as he states, “We were eighteen and had begun to love life and the world, and we had to shoot it to pieces. The first bomb, the first explosion, burst in our heart.

“Night,” by Elie Wiesel, is a novel of young Wiesel’s survival in the concentration camps during WWII .The overall theme of Night is faith. In 1941, a 12 year old boy named Eliezer Wiesel. He lives in Sighet Transylvania, and he belonged to an Orthodox Jewish family. His dad is a shopkeeper, and his family is highly respected within Sighet's Jewish community. Against his father’s will, Eliezer is into learning religious mysticism such as the Kabbalah.
After Joseph’s death, the Egyptians embalmed him and he was placed in a coffin. Joseph didn’t let the hard times shape him. He faced betrayal and desertion by his family members, sexual temptation, punishment for doing the right thing, long imprisonment and being forgotten by those he helped. He was able to do well where most people would have failed. At this end of this story, I do not think that Joseph brought a gift back from his journey after burying his father.
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).

Erdrich looks at the trauma of a soldier returning home from war and how their family must cope with his emotional change. The effects of war not only affect the soldier, but also cause an effect on families and loved ones.
Night: Passage Analysis Troubling thoughts consumed young Elie because he saw the ways in which father-son relationships are torn asunder by the camps. He watches as sons deny—or at least consider denying—care to their fathers, putting their own interests before their loved ones. Elie struggles with the same conflict when his father becomes ill, and when his father finally dies, Elie is profoundly sad though also proud that he never wholly compromised his own beliefs about family. The reason that Elie finds the deterioration of father-son relationships so painful is that the maintenance of this relationship seems to be the last barrier between a world that is semi-normal and one that has completely been turned upside down. Elie must continue
