The Holocaust is a major part in this world's history. Millions of Jewish lives were taken and those that weren't taken were left with many mental and physical scars. Elie Wiesel, the author of Night, was a victim of the Holocaust. In Night, Elie Wiesel tells his story of his one year experience in the Holocaust. From the moment, Elie entered Auschwitz, a concentration camp, he witnessed infants being used as target practice and people being tossed into flames. Elie lost his entire family during the Holocaust. His father's last breath used to plead his name. He had to endure all of that pain plus more. Many horrific stories are told of this tragedy and Adolf Hitler, The S.S officers, and Nazi soldiers were major parties responsible for this catastrophe. Adolf Hitler is responsible because he created the "Final Solution", The S.S officers carried out the mass extermination for the Final Solution, and the Nazi Soldiers gathered victims without questions. Adolf Hitler at a young age suffered from an unstable home with an abusive father. Adolf Hitler dropped out of school at the age of fifteen and decided to start his political career. He fell out with one of his earliest supporters Edourd Humer. Edourd Humer told people of how Hitler was in school "Hitler was certainly gifted in some subjects, but he lacked self-control. He was argumentative and bad-tempered, and unable to submit to school discipline….moreover, he was lazy. He reacted with hostility to advice or criticism."
