“He spoke only of what he had seen. But people not only refused to believe
his tales, they refused to listen" (Wiesel 7)

This was The Remorse of Orestes. Orestes was a man who wanted to kill his mother, Clytemnestra, after seeing her kill his dad. Through this process in which he decides to kill, half of his body suggests him to lay back and not kill while the other half suggests he kill and take revenge. This shows how he rejected the option in which later caused remorse. After the death of his mother, he was constantly haunted by himself and Furies. Those Furies in the image both symbolism Furies themselves and the regret and remorse he felt after the murder.
This chapter introduced Elie(protagonist), his family, and his small town in Translyvania called, Sighet. Elie is a strict Orthodox Jew that possess a keen interest in Kabbalah, which is an ancient Jewish tradition. He finds a tutor in the name of, Moshe the Beadle. During that time, all foreign Jews were to be expelled, and Moishe was deported as a result. He returns back to Sighet awhile later with horrific tales, but no one believes him. In the meanwhile, the Fascist seize power and the Nazi are headed there way, but the people of Sighet are in denial. After time passes, the Nazi reach Sighet and the Jews start to feel regret. The title name, "Contrite Abnegation," best matches this chapter as contrite mean guilt and remorse, and abnegation mean rejection. The Jews rejected what Moishe was explaining to them, which caused them to feel guilt later on as the Nazi approached Sighet.
In the trail of tears, many people were killed, injured, and sickened in the journey. This journey was not only tough, it was also life-risking. This could relate to the journey Elie faced seeing that he encountered the tantamount challenges the indians faced.
This chapter is when Elie and his dad are packed into a cable car and sent to the concentration camp of Birkenau. These rides were horrific seeing that they had lack of space, food, and air. Many people were injured including Elie's father, making it a nightmare for Elie. At the end, the smell of burning bodies was detected and indicated that there lives were already over. This could relate to our title of "The Infernal Ride to Death" because infernal means hellish and the ride to these concentration camps were like hell. The part which indicated "to Death" relates to the chapter because many of the Jews already inferred and thought that once the ride ended, they were to be killed. There thought this after smelling the smell of burning bodies.
The quote best connects to the name, "Contrite Abnegation," as the citizens of Sighet denied the stories Moshe the Beadle said about the atrocities ahead of them. They rejected the fact that the Nazi are a potential danger. The Jews of Sighet later payed the price and felt guilt after the Nazi made it through their town.
“‘There are eighty of you in the car,’ the German officer added. ‘If anyone
goes missing, you will all be shot, like dogs’”(Wiesel 24)
This quote best connects to the title, "The Infernal Ride to Death", as it depicts the horrifying conditions of the crowded cable car, making it a hellish ride.

“Babies! Yes, I did see this, with my own eyes…children thrown into the flames. (Is it any wonder that every since then, sleep tends to elude me?)” (Wiesel 32)
In this chapter, Elie and his father have already reached their first concentration camp, Auschwitz Birkenau. The first selection occurs and Elie and his father lie about their ages in order to avoid the crematorium. As they walk through the camp, they notice thousands of babies being burned. They go through tough times at the camp, and millions of Jews are murdered, starved, and brutally killed. The title, "The Vanishing Souls", best matches this chapter as Elie encounters thousands of people, including babies, being massacred.
This quote best matches the title, "The Vanishing Souls", as it depicts numerous innocent lives, including the babies, being lost through the most brutal ways. In the book, millions of babies were thrown into a fire.
In Chapter 4, Elie's only focus is to eat and stay alive. Elie encounters many adversities where he is hurt both physically and mentally. One instance is when the prison foreman, Franek, notices Elie's gold crown and demands it. When Elie refuses, Franek tortures Elie mentally by beating his father and causing them to experience problems. Another instance is when Elie catches Idek having sex with a Polish girl. Idek whips him mercilessly, hurting Elie both physically and emotionally. Whenever Elie's father was being beaten by the Kapo, Elie was scared mentally for life seeing that his father played a major role model in Elie's life. The title, "The Eternal Scar", best matches this chapter as Elie was harshly damaged both mentally and physically therefore scaring him for life.
“‘Bite your lips, little brother…Don’t cry. Keep your anger, your hate, for
anther day, for later. The day will come but not now…Wait. Clench your
teeth and wait…’”(Wiesel 53)
This quote depicts the physical, emotional, and mental pain Elie was feeling after he was brutally beaten by the Kapo. These scars will last on him for eternity, which best connects to title, "The Eternal Scar".

This picture depicts a young teen's life vanishing before her eyes. All of this occurs in the span of her eyes making her witness the world she cares about disappear. This could relate to chapter 3 because in chapter 3, many things were "vanishing" from Elie's life. Like his mother and sister were torn apart and burned. He also witnessed the lives of babies being burned and vanished. Everything was slowly vanishing except him.
This is a picture of a scar. This scar will never go away and will stick with this man forever. This can relate to our chapter title "The Eternal Scar" because whenever Elie was damaged both mentally and physically, he was scarred. He would never be able to shake off the thought of his father being whipped and beat. He could never shake off the thought of being beat countless times. These experiences or scars will stick with him lifelong just as this scar on the man's face will stay there for eternity.

Chapter 6: Pg. 85-97 Title: A Spark of Hope
“But deep inside, I knew that to sleep meant to die. And something in me
rebelled against that death. Death, which was settling in all around me,
silently, gently. It would seize upon a sleeping person, steal into him and
devour him bit by bit ”(Wiesel 89)
Quote Explanation
This quote best connects to the title, "A Spark of Hope", as Elie had a glimpse of hope to fight for his life while being forced by the Nazi to evacuate through a strong blizzard. He rebelled against death, which was surrounding him.
During Chapter 5, the time period is late summer 1944. In this chapter, Elie losses his faith in God and no longer is a religious person. He questions why God is not answering his prayer. At the same time, Elie's dad is separated through a selection, but survives. Elie also injures his foot and is sent to an infirmary to recover. The title, "Fading Piety", best matches this chapter as Elie loses his religious connection with God. "Piety" refers to the being religious and "fading" refers to going away.

“As I swallowed by ration of soup, I turned that act into a symbol of rebellion, of protest against Him. And I nibbled on my crust of bread. Deep inside me, I felt a great void opening ” (Wiesel 69)


Quote Explanation
This quote best connects to the title, "Fading Piety", as it accurately displays how Elie feels distrust towards God, conveying to us that he no longer feels piety.
Chapter 7 is basically about Elie's experience in the cattle cars during the evacuation to Germany. Numerous Jews are forced into tight cars that possess unsanitary conditions. The train frequently stops to throw out dead bodies along the way. German officers threw bread into the cattle cars in order to witness the prisoners kill each other. The title, "Inching Death", best relates to this chapter because Elie almost experiences death in the cattle car as the prisoners fight for the scraps of bread.
In this chapter, the Cattle Cars successfully arrive to Buchenwald. Elie gives his ration of soup and coffee to his father, who is unable to move. Elie's father, suffering from dysentery, begs for water. An SS guard becomes frustrated and beats him. Elie wakes up the next day to find his father's bed empty. He became relieved as a result. The title, "The Secret Murder", best connects to this chapter as Elie's dad is secretly found dead and is taken to the Crematory. Elie discovers his death the next day.
