'Night by Elie Wiesel.

Yesterday, I finished 'Night', by Elie Wiesel. At the end of the book, the Jew's father becomes sick, and is taken away to die. Eventually, the concentration camp is liberated by Amercians. He becomes sick three days after Buchenwald's liberation, the Jew becomes sick and is taken to a hospital. When he looks into a mirror, he sees an older version of himself. I forgot to mention that 'Night' is what happens to Elie Wiesel during the last years of WWII, or a auto biography. I really liked this book.

'Night' by Elie Wiesel

Today, I read the sixth chapter of 'Night'. The gestapo make the thousands of people run through the snow. The Jew survives the marches. Eventualy, the gestapo make the thousands of people pile in the trains, one-hundred per car. Because they were fed so little, all the people were very skinny.

'Night' by Elie Wiesel

I read the fourth and fifth chapters of 'Night' today. In the Fourth chapter, the jew and his family arrive at Buna, a camp, and the family sees that the camp looked like it got through a epidemic: very empty and dead. The jew meets the head of the camp, a stocky man with big shoulders, the neck of the bull, thick lips, and curly hair. In the camp, he worked next to a young french woman. After he gets beat up, she consols him. Many years later, in Paris, he sees her at the Metro. In the consentration camp, life is very tough for the jew.

In the fifth chapter, the summer comes to an end on the evening of Rosh Hashanah. The jew wonders how he could praise his god for all that has happened. A few weeks later , for Yom Kippur, the jew is told by his father not to fast, so he does not. He surives a test by SS troopers, by running fast, and avoided being writen down for a bad thing. In the winter, all the people are forced to leave the camp, to march in the snow.

'Night' By Elie Wiesel

I read the second and third chapters of Night, today. At the beginning of the second chapter, the Hungarian jew sees a train, and realizes that he and his family are going to be taken away from Hungary. A german officer threatens, that if one of the eighty people goes missing, the rest will be shot. The train arrives at Auschwitz, a german extermination camp, but none of the people have heard of Auschwitz. The people are told to go to a labor camp near the area.

In the third chapter, a gestapo officer separates the men and women, and make the groups form ranks of five, so they can start working. The groups eventually arrive at the new camp, Buna.

'Night' by Elie Wiesel

When I read Night, I get this WWII, depressing feeling. So far, I have read a chapter, and so far, Night seems very good literature. Elie Wiesel has done a good job with writing this book. This is one of the best books I've read. I would like to thank him for writing such a good book.
