  • 'Night' by Elie Wiesel 
  • Chapter 1
  • He wanted to drive the idea of studying Kabbalah from my mind. In vain. I succeeded on my own in finding a master for myself in the person of Moishe the Beadle.
  • Chapter 2
  • The doors clacked shut. We had fallen into the trap, up to our necks. The doors were nailed, the way back irrevocably cut off. The world had become a hermetically sealed cattle car. Page 24
  • The book 'Night' is a story about a young boy named Eliezer Wiesel and his journey trying to survive through the holocaust. 
  • Chapter 3
  • I saw them walking farther and farther away; Mother was stroking my sister's blond hair, as if to protect her. And I walked on with my father, with the men. I didn't know that this was the moment in time and the place where I was leaving my mother and Tzipora forever.
  • Elie studied the Kabbalah with Moishe the beadle until Moishe disappeared. Moishe returned with dark stories about what was happening outside of Singhet. During this time the Jewish people slowly have things taken away from them until they were forcibly taken away suddenly on trains. 
  • Chapter 4
  • The Jewish people of Sighet are crammed inside cattle trains and begin to travel to an unknown destination. 
  • Chapter 5
  • Elie and his family are sent to Birkenau where they're seperated. 
  • Elie and the other prisoners arrive at Buna where they're assigned jobs and a tent. Elie is beaten. Elie and others are forced to watch a young boy slowly die. 
  • But the third rope was still moving: the child, too light, was still breathing... And so he remained for more than half an hour, lingering between life and death, writhing before our eyes.
  • While Elie is recovering from an operation on his foot the Red Army approaches Buna, so the Jewish are forced to evacuate. The death march begins. 
  • "...You'll see, in two weeks, you'll be walking around like everybody else."  All I had to do was wait two weeks."
