Night by Elie Wiesel
"The synagogue was like a huge station: luggage and tears. The altar was broken, the hangings torn down, the walls bare" (Wiesel 17).
"We had a woman with us named Madame Schachter... her husband and two eldest sons had been deported with he first transport by mistake. The separation broke her" (Wiesel 18).
"They struck her several times on the head -- blows that might have killed her" (Wiesel 20).
"And I did not know that in that place, at that moment, I was parting from my mother and Tzipora forever" (Wiesel 22).
