Inhumanity is the lack of compassion or consideration for others so this Night reveals an entire world of man's inhumanity toward man. This book demonstrates how powerful a few people and one idea can be. Hitler set out to destroy a race of people and was almost successful in doing so. He convinced an army to hate the same way that he hated and so the Jews during WWII were treated like animals. They were stripped of their belongings, clothes, and dignity. They were tortured, murdered, and desecrated. Elie's account of his experience gave us a vivid window into the experiences of the Jews in the camps and the soldiers showed nothing resembling compassion or consideration for any of the people in these camps.
