The Night Novel

Answers by Weston

How did the camp life change the prisoners as a person? A family? And relationships with other human beings?

Living in the camp changed the people in many different ways but in with Elie it changed him as a person by making him lose his faith. It changed his family by splitting them in half and when it was him and his father he never wanted to leave his fathers side and that might mean that him and his father grew closer. His relationships with other people changed because he didn't realy talk to anyone and seemed kind of closed off.

What are three themes?

One of the themes that I found was the relationship between father and son because I thought that their relationship grew stronger throughout the book. Another theme I found that was a large part of the book was inhumanity because of the things that the nazis did to the Jews. The third theme that I found was survival because that was elies whole goal starting from the time he stepped out of the cattle car.

What does this novel reveal to me as a human being?

This book so far has made me realize how bad these people were treated. I knew that the holocaust was bad but I had no idea that it was this bad. It has made me realize what people are capable of making other people do even if they don't want to do it.
