Elie Wiesel explains the way he lived before the Germans came. He told us how he met Moishe the Beadle. I knew this when they noted "The Jew of Sighet- the little town in Transylvania where I spent my child hood, were fond of him" (Wiesel 3).
There was a woman name Mrs. Schachter and she saw a fire and started to scream and annoy others. Some women were trying to calm her down. I knew this happened about her when they noted "Look! Look at this fire! This terrible fire! Have Mercy on me!" (Wiesel 25).
Welcome to Birkenau
Elie and is father had passed through all the rough things before getting into the camp. Elie was also given a new name. I knew all this when they noted "Three prisoners brought a table and some medical instruments. We were told to roll up our left sleeves and file past the table.Needles in hand, tattooed numbers on our left arm" (Wiesel 42).
Welcome to Auschuwitz
The Germans arrived and they were ordering the Jews to give them any personal or house hold values. I knew this when they exclaimed "A Jew was henceforth forbidden to own gold, jewelry, or any valuables" (Wiesel 10).
Elie and his father had arrived at the camp, Birkenau. I knew they had arrived when they mentioned " It must have been around midnight. We had arrived. In Birkenau" (Wiesel 28).
Elie and his father have arrived in Auschuwitz and are put straight to work and terror of the camps. I knew they were put to work when they had commented "You are in Auschuwitz. And Auschuwitz is not a concentration home. It is a concentration camp. Here you must work. If you don't you will go straight to the chimney" (Wiesel 38).
