20 Elie Wiesel Quotes to Help Restore Your Faith in Humanity

Elie Wiesel born in Romania, September 30, — died in New York July 2, is widely known as an American-Jewish writer, author of 57 books, professor and political activist, and one of the most famous Auschwitz survivors. When he was 15, as the German army occupied Hungary, Elie and his family were placed in one of the confinement ghettos set up in his hometown. Two months later, all Jews were deported to the Auschwitz concentration camp, and most of them were killed soon after arrival. Wiesel and his father were the only ones in the family to be spared, as they were fit for labor. The only thing that kept him going in the concentration camp was knowing that his father was still alive. Sadly, his father was beaten to death shortly before the camp was liberated, and Elie was unable to help him. The book that made him famous — Night — describes everything he went through, both during his imprisonment in the Nazi camp and after.

He [Moishe] told me what had happened to him and his companions. The train with the deportees had crossed the Hungarian border and, once in Polish territory, had been taken over by the Gestapo. The train had stopped. The Jews were ordered to get off and onto waiting trucks. The trucks headed toward a forest. There everybody was ordered to get out. They were forced to dig huge trenches.

Loss of Faith

Quotes from the book "Night" by : Elie Wiesel

A portfolio created by Steve White. Many were filled with disgust, as the God they were so loyal to had abandoned them when they were subject to such cruelty. Most could not accept the silence and rebelled against their religious upbringing. We see glimpses of Elie questioning and refuting God, but we also see the contradictory behavior he exhibits by returning to praise. I had never asked myself that question. I cried because because something inside me felt the need to cry.

Use these Night quotes as a reminder to thwart prejudice, racism, hatred, and discrimination, for they are the seeds of human rights violations. Quote: Never shall I forget that night, the first night in camp, which has turned my life into one long night, seven times cursed and seven times sealed. Never shall I forget that smoke. Never shall I forget the little faces of the children, whose bodies I saw turned into wreaths of smoke beneath a silent blue sky. Analysis: As Eliezer arrives at Auschwitz he is greeted by his first selection. He and his father follow the line that passes a pit of burning babies. It is difficult for even the most hardened reader not to wince at this passage; it stands out as the most horrible atrocity in a chronical of horrible atrocities.

    Whereas Psalm praises God, this passage questions him.
