In the memoir Night, the narrator Elie Wiesel recounts a moment when anyone of any age would go burn and die in the crematorium. “Poor devils.You are heading to the crematorium.He seemed to be telling the truth. Not far from us, flames ,were rising from a ditch. Something was being burned there. A truck drew closer and unloaded it’s hold: small children. Babies! Yes, i did see this, with my own eyes...children thrown into the flames”(Wiesel 32).This goes together with my thesis because of killing babies and children that haven’t lived for very long is inhuman. They did not just kill a few they killed all of them and they also killed some adults too. The jews later on started to no longer believe in god .They thought why would he do something so horrible and inhuman to us all so most not longer believed.

When jews first experienced inhumanity they would not believe it ,they were shocked of what they were to live with and keep silence of all the people dying that did not deserve to die.”Sons abandoned the remains of their fathers without a tear”(wiesel 92).This specific part of the story is important because it makes the reader understand that when you experience inhumanity you also start acting like that. Sons abandoned their own fathers without sorrow.Moreover the reasons to why inhumanity can cause people to do anything. Inhumanity is something strong that can hurt to a point that you have no feelings.”They threw themselves on me. They snatched it from me, my bread...and they beat me...again… i can’t go on, my son..give me some water…”(Wiesel 110).This part makes it obvious that causing inhumanity changes a person the SS officers could have been less harsh.Causing the inhumanity to an old weak man is too much it went too far.In conclusion inhumanity changes a person completly you might not realise it that you change which makes it even more
