Transcript of Night by Elie Wiesel Religious Observance

"Man comes closer to God through the questions he asks Him, he liked to say. Therein lies true dialogue. Man asks and God replies. But we don't understand His replies. we cannot understand them. Because they dwell in the depths of our souls and remain there until we die. The real answers, Eliezer, you will find only within yourself." page 5

"I did not fast. first of all, to please my father who had forbidden me to do so. And then, there was no longer any reason for me to fast, I no longer accepted God's silence. As I swallowed my ration of soup, I turned that act into a symbol of rebellion, of protest againsts Him." page 69

"For the first time, I felt anger rising within me. Why should I sanctify His name? The Almighty, the eternal and terrible Master of the Universe, chose to be silent. What was there to thank Him for?" page 33
"'Where is merciful god, where is He?' Someone behind me was asking...Behind me, I heard the same man asking: 'For God's sake, where is God?' And from within me, I heard a voice answer:'Where He is? This is where-hanging here from this gallows...'" page 64&65

"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. I was transfered to the children's block, where there were six hundred of us." page 113
Thematic Statement
While on his journey in the concentration camps, Eliezer began to lose confidence in his religion.
"No prayers were said over his tomb. No candle lit in his memory. His last word had been my name. He had called out to me and I had not answered. I did not weep, and it pained me that I could not weep. But I was out of tears." page 112
