Elie Wiesels Night

Fate plays a huge role in Wiesel’s survival, as the death of his
parents and sister clearly illustrate.Wiesel struggled to survive, and
learned how to play the game of survival with the Germans, by working hard

to the camp from work.The deaths of others create a stunning lack of will

notes, “‘Humanity’Humanity is not concerned with us.Today anything is
