Don't worry son, I'll teach you about the glory of Kabbalah.
Thanks Moshe, reading with you has helped me get closer to eternity.
Get on Jews!
If a single one of you try to escape, we'll kill you all!
Chapter 3 & 4
Welcome to Birkenau jews. This is the last place some of you will ever see; the rest of you will be working under the great Führer
After meeting Moshe, Elie began to practice Talmud more frequently. Elie eventually became convinced that, "Moshe would help me [him] enter eternity"(Wiesel,5).
Why do you betray those who follow your laws? Why do you burn us instead of blessing us?
As the Jews were forced into the car, their possessions were taken from them and they were told about what would happen if they tried to escape. The Hungarian lieutenant said, " If anyone goes missing, you will all be shot, like dogs"(Wiesel,24)
Don't stop running son, our story isn't over yet!
As soon as the SS stopped talking an Elie was sent away, another inmate began to scream. "You will be burned! Burned to a cinder! Turned to ashes"Wiesel, 31)
After going through the camp, Elie began to think differently about god. His true feelings were expressed when he said," Why would I bless him... He caused thousands of children to burn in his mass grave(Wiesel,67).
It took hearing gunshots for Elie to learn the truth. He understood when he said," If one of us [them] stopped for a second, a quick shot eliminated the filthy dog [him](Wiesel,85).
