NightBy: Elie Wiesel

'' I was almost thirteen and deeply observant. By day i studied Talmud and by night i would run to the synagogue to weep over the destruction of the Temple"This evidence shows how in the beggining of the book Elie was so religious.

Quote 5

"Blessed be God’s name?Why, but why would I bless Him? Every fiber in me rebelled. Because He caused thousands of children to burn in His mass graves? Because He kept six crematoria working day and night, including Sabbath and the Holy Days? Because in His great might, He had created Auschwitz, Birkenau, Buna, and so many other factories of death? How could I say to Him: Blessed be Thou, Almighty, Master of the Universe, who chose us among all nations to be tortured day and night, to watch as our fathers, our mothers, our brothers end up in the furnaces? Praised be Thy Holy Name, for having chosen us to be slaughtered on Thine altar? "This quote shows Elie once again questioning god. He is not an athesist is just the God that Elie saw as a kid was no longer there. As Elie became less innocent he looked at God differently.

Quote 2

" For the time, I felt anger rising within me. why should i santify his name? The Almighty, the eternal and terrible Master of the Universe, chose to be silent. What was there to thank him for?" In this quote he basically says when all the horrors were present the Almighty chose to be silent, which enraged him. This is evidence that shows he starts to question the faith and religion he had back home.

"I looked at my house in which I had spent years seeking my God, fasting to hasten the coming of the Messiah, imagining what my life would be like later. Yet I felt little sadness. My mindwas empty."This quote shows That although Elie hasn't lost all his faith, during this long and cruel journey he has left behind some of his religous pursuits, and innocence.

"And in spite of myself, a prayer formed inside me, a prayer to this God in whom I no longer believed.""Oh God, Master of the Universe, give me the strength never to do what Rabbi Eliahu’s son has done." In this quote even though Elie has lost his faith, he prays for the strength not to leave his father like Rabbi Eliahu's son.
