Chapter Analysis

As a book, "Night" is difficult to categorize. Somewhere between autobiography, memoir, and fiction, this stark and harrowing account of the death camps of Auschwitz and Buchenwald details the inversion of all that is good, just, and known: the relationship between fathers and sons, the relationship of man and god, and the boundaries of the self. These questions invite you to contemplate how Wiesel, in just 100 short pages, managed to capture the enormity of the suffering — and to hold the reader accountable for remembering the ravages of history.

General Analysis

Originally written as a Yiddish screed clocking in at over 800 pages, "Night" was eventually translated to French and pared down significantly. Critic Ruth Franklin once stated that this edit transformed Wiesel's work from "angry historical account into a work of art." As you answer these questions, consider the ways in which Franklin's statement is true (or untrue). How does Wiesel turn his story to art, and what does this work teach us about humanity and historical responsibility?
