What visualizations from Schindler's List are compatible with what we're reading in Night by Elie Wiesel.

This is a great question.  I think that Spielberg's vision of the concentration camps can be very similar to what we see in Wiesel's visions in "Night."  For example, the scene where the the train with the women in Schindler's factory is rerouted to Auschwitz and the women's first view of the camp is very similar to how Wiesel describes his first night in Auschwitz.  In both, the sight of the chimneys of the crematorium is a powerful image.  One can almost hear the refrain of "Never Shall I Forget" as complementing Itzhak Pearlman's violin in such a scene.  When we read about the little boy being hung from the gallows, we can almost parallel it with the dead girl in the red petticoat or the boy who has to jump in the latrine in order to avoid the selection.  These moments are powerful and bring to light the visualization of the Holocaust in both cinema and written text.
