Elie Wiesel is an author who writes about his experience of the Holocaust in his story

Elie Wiesel is an author who writes about his experience of the Holocaust in his story, Night. He is a Jewish man who is sent to a concentration camp, controlled by a famous dictator, Adolf Hitler. Elie is stripped of everything that belongs to him. All that he has worked for in his life is taken away from him instantly. He is even separated from his mother and sister. On the other side of this, he is fortunate to survive and tell his story. He describes the immense, awful, and cruel treatment that he receives from the Nazis. Even after all of the brutal treatment and atrocities he experiences, he does not hate the world and everything in it, and not becoming a brute.
However, Elie escapes his fate and doesn’t turn into a brute. He escapes this fate essentially because he is lucky. Why did he survive, and others did not? There is no accurate explanation. Even he doesn’t know the answer to this. In Night, Elie states: “If heaven could or would perform a miracle for me, why not for others more deserving than myself? It was nothing more than chance. However, having survived, I needed to give some meaning to my survival”
Another part of the reason that Elie does not turn into a brute is because he is a very smart person. He proves to be intelligent while he is in the camps. When he did not want his tooth to be pulled he pretended that he was sick. “I shall remove your gold crown … I thought of pretending to be sick. I don’t feel well, I have a fever…”
