  • Exposition
  • Conflict
  • Rising Action
  • The Exposition starts off in the town of Sighet. Elie is from this small where he has an average life. You are introduced to his family members and another character named Moishe, who tries to warn Elie and others of the Germans, but fails.
  • Climax
  • The conflict first appears when Elie realizes the Germans true intentions. He boards the train car but the Jews are barely given any food. From the train car, Elie sees his first camp and realizes Moishe was telling the truth
  • Falling Action
  • The Rising Action starts immediately after the conflict is introduced, with Auschwitz being the first camp. After Auschwitz, Elie goes from camp to camp continually working. Elie works, gets lashed, does many forced marches before the Climax.
  • Resolution
  • The Climax of Night is when Elie's father, after being sick for a while dies and is taken away. Everything Elie has fought so hard for in the last few weeks was for nothing, and he lost his only ally inside the camps.
  • After the death of his father, Elie stays in the camps for a few more months but this time it is all a blur, Elie remembers little because all he did was work and eat the few portions he was given. Elie was at his weakest at this point in the story having nothing and no one.
  • The Resolution of the book starts when rebels take over the camp, and Elie is saved by the Americans. Elie is placed in a hospital, and is quite sick but lives and he finally sees himself in the mirror. Elie will never remember this image for it was a corpse looking back at him, Elie should've died in these camps but pulled through.
