1. How did life change the prisoners as a person? A family? And relationships with other human beings?
At first, the jews were sorta a united front and together and silently mourned for the fallen. But as time went one it turned into survival of the fittest. Sons left the old and weaken fathers because they believed that their father is holding them back to surviving. But Elie was strong willed guy and stayed with his father till the bitter end even though Elie had his doubts.
2. Identify at least 3 themes in the novel.
There are many themes in this book. But are four in this book that I identified. The fours themes are faith, father-son relationships, silence, and evil.
3. What does this novel reveal about you as a human being?
It made me open my eyes and made REALLY grateful of what I have. It's true, I take some things I have for granted. For example, I'm waiting to go to lunch in fifth hour and I think that I'm starving to death. But, then I think of the jews and how many days they went without food and water. So many days that they turn their backs on close friends and their own kin and kill each other basically for a piece of bread.
