Elie Wiesel The Holocaust was a terrible, dark time in the 1900s (1933-1945). Many Jewish families were broken up and killed. Elie Wiesel is one of the many who was saved from dying of starvation. Elie created stories based on his experience in the Auschwitz concentration camp. He used persistence while in these camps by not losing the will to live. Elie inspired many people to live life to the fullest, (he didn’t get to live the perfect life he probably imagined when he was little) even if you come across problems.
The greatest change to Elie Wiesel’s identity was his loss of faith in God. Before he and his family were moved to the camps, Wiesel was a religious little boy who cried after praying at night (2). When the Hungarian police come to force the Jews to move to the ghettos, they pulled Elie from his prayers (13). Even on his way to Auschwitz, stuffed inside the cattle car with other terrified Jews, Wiesel gave thanks to God when told he would be assigned to labor camps (24). After a few days in Auschwitz, Elie Wiesel heard about the crematory and the fact that the Nazis were killing the sick, weak, and young. In his first night in the camp, Wiesel experienced his first crisis of faith: Never shall I forget those flames which consumed my faith forever. …Never shall I forget those moments which murdered my God and my soul and turned my dreams to dust (32).
