By: Elie Wiesel

In the book Night, by Elie Wiesel, Elie remembers his dreadful days as a prisoner at German concentration camps. He describes his life before the camps in his town of Sighet, with his jewish mentor, respected father, and family. He goes on to explain the German invasion and how they divided the city into ghetto's and then eventually shipped them off to concentration camps. Once there, they are selected to live or die. If you are lucky enough to live, they take away your identity and give you very little to eat or drink and expect you to work long hours. Starvation drives the group mad and all Elie has is his father Schlomo, and they attempt to make it through these tragic events together.
