Throughout history, many terrible things have happened that have put people in terrible conditions. During the Holocaust, millions of people died, and the few that survived were very lucky. Elie Wiesel, the author of “Night”, endured many horrible things in the Holocaust that shaped him as a person today. In “Night”, by Elie Wiesel, the main character, Elie, changed as a person due to his experiences at Auschwitz. Before Elie went to the concentration camp, he had many good characteristics such as being dedicated, sympathetic, and optimistic. To start, on page four, Wiesel writes, “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.” This was the beginning of the book where Elie was introducing us to his religion. This piece of evidence from the book shows that Elie was dedicated to practicing and learning his religion. His father wasn’t fully supportive of him studying Kabbalah, as there were not many Kabbalists in town, but Elie stayed completely dedicated to it, not thinking about outside opinions. Another trait Elie displays in the beginning of the book is sympathy. On page nineteen, Wiesel writes, “My father was crying. It was the first time I saw him cry. I had never thought it was possible.
