He referred to the haggard Jews as “wild beasts of prey, with animal hatred in their eyes…” (Wiesel 95). The Jews were reduced to behave like beasts due to lack of food and water. The Nazis purposely failed to provide the Jews with sufficient supplies. Withered and disgruntled, the Jews seek to fulfill the needs that had been deprived from them.
Dehumanization in Night During the World War II period in the mid 1900’s Hitler and the Nazi Party tried to rid of the Jewish population in Europe. This event was called the Holocaust, which literally means an event of mass destruction. Hitler tried to eliminate the Jews by placing them in concentration camps to work and to eventually die. These camps were run by the Nazis and they would constantly dehumanize the Jews, this means to deprive them of their human qualities and their identities.

During the journey, Elie, his family, and the other Jews suffer from the inhuman conditions they must endure; they are also driven to distraction by the hysterical screams of Madame Schachter, who has hallucinations of fire and furnace. When Elie and his family arrive at the concentration camp, they see flames rising out of an oven, which is actually a crematorium for the prisoners. They are repulsed by the stench of burning flesh.
Everyone had seemed worried and scared. After days of exhaustion and starvation they had arrived at Auschwitz, where the men and women had been separated. The next camp that they arrived at was Buna where they were forced to work. The only thing that the prisoners had to eat was soup and bread, therefore many died. Prisoners were also forced to watch others get hanged.

The most notorious example of dehumanization of civilians has to be the killing of Jews in World War Two. Six million Jews were murdered by the Nazis for the simple reason that they were Jewish. They were shipped to concentration camps in cattle cars where they were subjected to slave labor until they died of exhaustion or disease. There were numerous examples of dehumanization in the concentration camps.
