Excerpt From this Document
- Why do you think no one would listen to Moshe the Beadle’s story?
- There were several opportunities for Wiesel and his family to escape before they were sent to Auschwitz. What were these opportunities, and why did the family not take advantage of these opportunities?
- Define irony, and discuss Wiesel’s use of irony in the first chapter of Night. What message is he trying to convey about the Jews’ attitude, and how does his use of irony help him get his message across?
- Define foreshadowing. Discuss Wiesel’s use of foreshadowing in Chapter Two regarding Madame Schächter.
- In Chapter Three, Wiesel says, “For the first time, I felt revolt rise up in me. Why should I bless His name?…What had I to thank him for?” (Pg. 31)What is beginning to happen to the young religious scholar?
- Wiesel witnessed two hangings. After the first, he says, “I remember that I found the soup excellent that evening.…” (Pg. 60) After the second execution, that of the young boy with “the face of a sad angel,” he writes, “That night the soup tasted of corpses.” (Pg. 62) It is unlikely that the soup’s flavor differed greatly from day to day. What point is Wiesel making by comparing the two executions with the flavor of the soup?
