In his autobiography Night, Elie Wiesel shares his experiences in Auschwitz-Birkenau, one of Hitler’s concentration camps. Wiesel was one of the minority of Jews to survive the Holocaust during World War II. His family did not make it through with him, and this had lasting effects.

Between 1933 and 1945, more than 11 million men, women, and children were murdered in the Holocaust. Approximately six million of these were Jews.

The relationship between Elie and his faith was lost because of the way he and the others in the camp were treated along with the environment they were kept in.
Throughout a lifetime, people undergo many different identities to discover their true self. Elie Wiesel, the author of the memoir Night, suffered a major event that changed his identity forever. In his experience at the concentration camps during the Holocaust, Elie had to fight to stay alive even during the most resilient moments. This event shaped his life and brought Elie to endure different perspectives in his time in the camps. Eliezer’s identity changed throughout the memoir from faithful, to fearful, to hopeless.
Having the knowledge of inherent good and evil, using that knowledge to determine ones actions and putting others before oneself is what constitutes a good human being. Living in a world that has so much hate and suffering, (that has been exemplified throughout history by men and ruthless leaders like Adolf Hitler; the evil mastermind behind the atrocities of the Holocaust during World War II and Jay Gatsby in the novel The Great Gatsby for blinding himself from the ways of right and wrong to simply be able to make Daisy his after many years having passed), it is hard to find examples of good people in characters within books; much less actual human beings. And yet, there are still good people and virtuous characters in literature and film that give hope for there being a truly good person. In the autobiography Night by Elie Wiesel, the integrity behind Elie’s actions can be seen when he struggles to make life decisions for not only himself, but for his father. The story Of Mice and Men where Lennie takes care of George even though he, (George), held him back from some of his aspirations that he had been striving towards for many years. And Harold Crick in the film Stranger than Fiction who put himself before the bus to save a child’s life along with Karen Eiffel changing her writing style to better other people’s lives.
