Night by Elie Wiesel
Made by Bella Artman
Their Lives In Camps
Another theme is silence. This theme is shown when the prisoners question God, they get nothing but silence and how God is silent while innocent lives are being taken. The theme is also shown shown when the prisoners were silent and passive while horrible things happened around them. Elie's writing of the Night was a way to break the silence and tell the world of what happened there.
An additional theme is the importance of familial bonds, or in Elie's case, bonds with his father. He tells of how others mistreat their fathers and how selfish they become to do so, but later he begins the feel the same selfishness as he blames his father for being beaten for not being strong enough. He later regrets it when he realizes that he is dependent on his father for a reason to live.
