WWII Holocaust. This book shows the journey of Eliezer a young jewish boy, of how he got split from his family and that his father makes his trip more manageable. This story starts in Hungary, Transylvania in a town of Sighet. Eliezer's instructor Moishe the Beadle is teaching him the Torah (first five books of the Old Testament) & the Cabbala (doctrine of jewish mysticism). Eliezer teaching is short when his instructor is deported. After a few months Moishe returns to only tell a horrid tale, the Gestapo (German secret police force) they took charge of his train and leads the group of people from the train into the woods & does a routine kill. Nobody beleives him and he's taken as a lunatic. This story only escalates from that point. This book, Night shows that the author's moral is for equality to only care for one another. No discrimination because of someone's race, religion, or political views. Elie Wiesel a winner of the Nobel peace prize in 1986, awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the United States of America Congressional Gold Medal, & the French Legion of Honor. The human nature and existence that revaeled the important insight of this book is that to not give up even when everything around you is falling apart. Always push forward and only reflect on the pass that affected you deeply. Elie Wiesel.
