Climax:The climax of this story is when Elie's father dies, because throughout the entire story Elie tries to stay with his father and cannot anymore.

My Thoughts:I really liked this story. Although really depressing, it honestly told the good and bad of being in several different concentration camps. Elie Wiesel gives you enough detail so that the story isn't tedious, but you can still picture everything he's saying.
