Nobel laureate Wiesel’s masterpiece, Night, is a memoir recounting the author’s experience in the Nazi concentration camps of Auschwitz, Gleiwitz, and Buchenwald during the last two years of World War II. Eliezer is initially devoutly religious, praying regularly and studying the Cabbala. By the end of the memoir, he is torn by ambivalence toward his father, seeing him as a burden that lessens Eliezer’s own chances of survival, as he becomes more narrowly fixed on his own self-preservation.
