And as the train stopped, we saw this time that flamesw were gushing out of a tall chimney into the black sky." (Wiesel, 25) How does Elie regard fire in relation to the Holocaust? Fire was what killed the Jews in the death camps, other than bullets and hard labor. What is fire supposed to symbolize? Destruction/Death "We looked at the flames in the darkness. There was an abominable ordor floating in the air."(Wiesel, 26) " "Not far from us, flames were leaping up from a ditch, gigantic flames. They were burning something. A lorry drew up at the pit and delivered its load--little children. Babies! Yes, I saw it--saw it with my own eyes...those children in the flames." "I realized that he did not want to see what they were going to do to me. He did not want to see the burning of his only son." (Wiesel, 30).
