Night by Elie Wiesel

1) "We were driven out of the barracks. The Kapos beat us once more, but i had ceased to feel any pain from their blows. An icy wind enveloped us. We were naked, our shoes and belts in our hands. The command: "Run!" And we ran.... The student of the Talmud, the child that I was, had been consumed in the flames. There remained only a shape that looked like me. A dark flame had entered into my soul and devoured it. So much had happened within such a few hours that I had lost all sense of time? When had we left our houses? And the Ghetto? And the train? Was it only a week? One night-one single night?" (Chapter 3, pages 36-37).2) "Dusk had fallen. The day was disappearing in a monochrome of gray.... An icy wind blew in violent gusts, But we marched without faltering. The SS made us icrease our pace. "Faster, you swine, you filthy sons of bitches!" Why not? The movement warmed us up a little. The blood flowed more esily in our veins. One felt oneself reviving.... "Faster, you filthy sons of bitches!" We were no longe marching; we wer rinning. Like automatons.The SS were running too, their weapons in their hands. We looked a though we wre fleeing befoe them. The Night was Pitch Black" (Chapter 5-6, pages 84-85). 3) "I had to go to sleep. I climbed into my bunk, aboce my father, who was still alive The date was January 28, 1945. I woke up at Dawn on Jaunuary 29. On my father's cot lay another sick person. They must have taken him away befer day break and taken him to the crematorium.... He had called out to me and I had not answered." (Chapter 8, page 112).

For normal people "night" is just a time for sleeping and relaxation, but for those of the Holocaust it is just a representation of Death and Pain, for some of the worst times in the Concentration camps happened at night.
