Night Elie Wiesel

This book is an autobiography sharing the morbid and horrifying childhood story of Elie Wiesel and his fight for survival during the Holocaust. The story starts in the small Jewish town of Sighet, but everyone is efficiently kicked out and relocated. Then they are sent to Nazi Concentration Camps where they will be burnt, starved, beaten, or shot to death under Adolf Hitler's direct orders. Elizer and his father barely survive their long and perilous journey, but they survive long enough to get to Auschwitz: hundreds of thousands of people's final resting place. Unfortunately Chlomo, Elie 's dad, dies of disease in Auschwitz, but Elie lives to tell his soul - devouring tale.

Quote Analysis

Wiesel, Elie, and Marion Wiesel. Night: With a New Preface by the Author. New York: Hill and Wang, 1972. Print.

This quote is saying that forgetting the dead is like killing them a second time. This could be from embarresment, or pure lack of respect. This is an extremelly deep and meaningful statement that really stings when you use it in the context of the Holocaust. It is a terrible opinion, but I think it is a fact. We must remember people who have lost their lives, and respect what they worked towards and died for.

Quote:

“To forget the dead would be akin to killing them a second time.”
