Transcript of Night
"I pinched myself; was i still alive? Was i awake? How was it possible that man, women, and children were being burned alive the world kept silent? No. All this could not be real"(32).
Discuss how Elie Wiesel Is represented through Eliezer.
"These thoughts were going through my mind as I continued to run, not feeling my numb foot, not even realizing that I still owned a body that galloped down the road among thousands of others"(81).
"I no longer felt anything expect the lashes of the whip"(57).
"When you were displeased by Noah's generation, you brought the flood. When Sodom lost your favor, you caused the heavens to run down fire and domination. But look at these men whom you have betrayed allowing them to be tortured, slaughtered, gassed, and burned, what did they do? They pray before you! They praise your name"! (68)
"Anyway I knew that I would be strong enough to fight off dozens violent men! I saw not from me, an old man dragging himself on all fours". (101)
Elie Wiesel remembers all of the pain he went through in the concentration camps. His foot was almost useless while running. It was freezing to the point where he couldn't feel his body.
Eliezer represents how weak and humble Elie is getting. He feels that he is not physically strong enough to fight back.
Eliezer is representing how Ellie couldn't feel anything expect the physical pain he was was given.
"One day I asked my father to find me a master who could guide me in my studies of Kabbalah" (4).
"Our principle was to economize, to save for tomorrow. Tomorrow could be worse yet"(23).
Eliezer represents how Elie questions God. He knows that God is very powerful and he can do many things, but he wonders how can he let all this happen? How can he just watch all this suffering and brutality happen?
"I could have screamed in anger. To have lived and endured so much was I going to let my father die now?" (105)
Through Eliezer Elie shows how much anger he has endured and shows signs of weakness. He has to move and keep pushing because he knows he can't let his father die, therefore his father is what keeping his alive.
" I remained in Buchenwald until April 11. I shall not describe my life during that period. It no longer mattered. Since my father's death nothing mattered to me anymore" (113).
Eliezer represents how nothing mattered to Ellie. Everything was dead to him. His father was the only family he had left. His father was the key of his survival and now that he is dead he just doesn't care anymore.
At the beggining of the story we see that Eliezer is very religious by how he asks him father to find him a master to guide him in his studies of Kabbalah.
Eliezer is showing that people who were on the carts knew that each day that was to occur was only going to get worse and they would rather save the food for the "
Eliezer is showing how he couldn't believe was going on. His own people were being tortured and killed no one step up to help. He thought he was dreaming, that all of this couldn't be real.
