"Poor Father! Of what then did you die?"
This quote demonstrates early tension between father and son. The story begins with Ellie hiding his emotions from his father.
"The yellow star? So what? It's not lethal..."
"There was no time to think, and I already felt my father's hand press against mine. We were alone."
This quote is describing the early developing relationship between Ellie and his father.
"...I decided to look at myself in the mirror on the opposite wall. I had not seen myself since the ghetto."
Ellie has reached the part of his story where he is completely lost in his emotions. He is completely unsure of what is ahead of him. In fact, it appears that he did not want to know either.
"Our senses were numbed, everything was fading into a fog. We were no longer clung to anything."
My father had just been struck, in front of me, and I had not even blinked. I had watched and kept still."
With all of these emotions and thoughts running through Ellie's mind. These emotions make him become self-centered and independent.
As he grows older and is exposed to the evils in the world, Wiesel learns how to be selfless. He looks out for his father and learns how to care for others.
"I'll watch over you and you'll watch over me. We won't let eachother fall asleep. We'll look after each other."
In the end, Ellie has found his true self. His experience in the Holocaust has changed him. The dark things that he has seen has shaped him into a completely different person.
