In the book Night by Elie Wiesel, what do Jews have to go through?
“Never shall I forget that night, the first night in camp, which has turned my life into one long night, seven times cursed and seven times sealed....Never shall I forget those moments which murdered my God and my soul and turned my dreams to dust. Never shall I forget these things, even if I am condemned to live as long as God Himself. Never.”
― Elie Wiesel, Night
The book Night is Elie Wiesel's recollection of the treatment of Jews at the hands of the Nazis. It is based on his own experiences at Auschwitz. The Jews went through unimaginable pain and suffering throughout the German empire between 1939 and 1945. Wiesel and his family were from Hungary. They were relocated from their small town to ghettos where their freedom of movement was restricted. They were forced to follow strict rules and to wear identification badges. The Jews were stripped of their dignity and humanity. Many, including Wiesel, lost faith in humanity and God. Many Jews met their final demise in the death camp that Eli Wiesel was sent to. Before dying, they were abused and suffered from sickness and famine. The final insult to the Jews at the death camp was the march to the gas chambers, where they died with dozens of their comrades. Their bodies were ruthlessly burned to dispose of the evidence of the Nazi crimes.
