Transcript of Night~ By Elie Wiesel

Written By: Elie Wiesel
Prezi By: Kelsey Farr And Aurora Chinevere Night Night Elie & His Father ~By Elie Wiesel An example of the conflict Man Vs. Man would be Elie Vs. his father. Our reasoning for this would be because of Elie's father in the beginning of the story and at the end. In the beginning Elie's father was strong and told Elie to do and say things to keep him alive. By the ending of the story, Elie was thinking of how his father was becoming a burden because of illness.

An example of the conflict Man Vs. Society would be the other Jewish prisoners beating his father. When Elie's father fell ill, he began to moan and whine about his pain. The other Jewish prisoners were getting sick and tired of his complaints and they beat Chlomo to make him shut up.

An example of Man Vs. Self would be Elie fighting with himself when he had painful frostbite on his foot. He kept telling himself to just keep running, keep running, even when his foot was in so much pain from the frostbite's effects. He wanted to just give up and die because the pain was so excruciating, but he thought about his father and survival and rescue and told himself to keep running "Don't think. Don't stop. Run." Conflicts An example of irony from "Night" would be when Elie and his father decides to leave the hospital and go with the rest of the Jews. When they left, the hospital and the patients who had stayed there, got liberated. Irony Some examples of SYMBOLISM are BREAD, and FIRE.

The BREAD is an example of SURVIVAL because that's really all Elie had to eat in order to survive. All he cared about was his ration of stale BREAD and his bowl of soup.

The FIRE is an example of DEATH because whenever they saw FIRE, it meant someone was being cremated in the crematorium. (This ultimately led to the DEATH of 6 Million Jews! As mentioned in slide 3.) Symbolism "I did not fast, mainly to please my father, who had
forbidden me to do so. But further, there was no longer any reason why I should fast. I no longer accepted God's silence. As I swallowed my bowl of soup, I saw in the gesture an act of rebellion and protest against Him"
~Elie Wiesel
Pg. 66

The reason we chose this quote is because Elie is explaining that he did not fast, mainly to please his father.
"Don't Think. Don't Stop. Run."
~Elie Wiesel
Pg. 86. The Holocaust started in 1933 when Adolf Hitler, leader of the NSGWP (The Nazi Party), was named chancellor of Germany by President Paul Von Hindenburg. After the Nazi Party won a significant percentage of the vote in the elections of 1932. During that time, Jews in Europe were subjected to progressively harsher persecution that ultimately led to the murder of 6 million Jews, 1.5 million of those being children, and 5 thousand Jewish communities. The Germans blamed the weak, weimer government, Jews, and other religions for Germany's problems. Foreshadowing An example of foreshadowing in the book "Night" would be when Mrs. Schächter is in the wagon with the other Jews screaming "Fire!" before they they got to the concentration camp. When they got there, they realized that her visions were about the crematorium Protagonist In the story, Elie is the protagonist because he is the one trying to get himself and his father out of the concentration camp safely and as fast as possible. Elie is a dynamic character. He is a dynamic character because in the begining he just wants to be with his father, and nothing else besides that mattered, but toward the end, all he cared about was his ration of bread and his soup. Theme The theme of the book, "Night" would have to be depression. Everywhere Elie goes, he is surrounded by death and depression. It seems that there is no more happiness left in the world. Fin
