The book NIGHT by Elie Weisel Is a book about a boy and his family who lived in a little town. During the time of the holocaust. Near the end of the holocaust the boy and his family were put in a cattle cars on a train with about eighty other people. At first there was a lot of optimism even though these people were tortured, but when they arrived to the concentration camp there was a bit of hysteria. The boy and his father stayed together but they were separated from the boy’s mother and sisters. The boy agony when he had to leave his mother because he was closest with her. In the concentration camps the men were made to work every day and the old ones were killed. When they were fed their coffee in the mornings they were poisoned little by little without knowing. All were taken away even gold teeth, the boy had a gold tooth and it had been removed with a rusty spoon. Anybody with the littlest amount rebellion was killed instantly. The boy hurt his foot he was put in the hospital until it healed. At the end the boy and his father and hundreds of other men had to run 42 miles without stopping. This is a true story of the traumatic terror that Elie Weisel had to encounter.

My Opinion of the book Night by Elie Weisel is that it is a very traumatic book and I feel Remorse for Elie and his family. When and if you read this book I think you well feel the same as I did. The holocaust was a very troubled part of our history. I learned by reading Night that people are treated differently not only by the way they look by also what religion they take.
