Elie Wiesel’s Break Of Silence nice title
One of the most dreadful events in the history of mankind: the Holocaust during World
War II. The holocaust was a genocide of Jews, homosexuals, mentally handicapped, and crippled,. Where did you get this information? The holocaust killed more than six million Jews alone. Elie Wiesel is a Jew who went through the terror of the holocaust and its concentration camp. He tells his story in his book Night. Night reveals how Wiesel lost his family, faith, and innocence to the evil of mankind during the holocaust. Wiesel believes it is important for people today to read this book because they need to be shown how important it is not to keep silent and let something like the holocaust happen again. Thesis was a bit wordy.
Elie has some of the most marvelous figurative language throughout the novel, starting off with some metaphors. Elie and the rest of the block are running to a peculiar concentration camp, with no rest Elie starts having speculation of what will happened if he stops running. “ A great ideal wave of men came rolling onward and would have crushed me like an ant” (87). No analysis How does this relate to the author’s purpose? The next phase awkward phrase is about when there was two cauldrons of soup in the middle of the road with no one to guard it. “Two lambs with hundreds of wolves lying in the wait for them. Two lambs without a shepherd, free for the taking. But who would dare?” (59) DOn’t quote drop. What is the significance of the quote? How does this relate back to the author’s purpose? Hae you ever been so mad at someone that everytime you talk to them you questioned them with anger or say their name with a raucous tone? Well, Elie has when the block started praying, Elie started thinking why would he pray for someone that cause thousands of children to burn in His mass graves. “Why, but why would I bless Him? Every fiber in my rebelled.” (67)
His the one that created Auschwitz, Birkenau, Buna, and so many other factories. “ 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 our fathers, our mothers, our brothers end up in the furnaces?” (67) These are some of the most vigorous awk word choice questions I have heard throughout the book, these question really have a persuasive meaning into them and I understand why he will question The Almighty, Master of the Universe. This would have been a good opportunity to talk about the Elie’s faith before and after. Again, lacking analysis. Imagine yourself as jew that was taken to the concentration camp and all this abhorrent things are happening to you. Then you inquest ? yourself why is this happening to me out of all people? What did I do to be in this situation? Why is God letting this happen? We pray before
You and this is what we receive? “Look at…
