  1. 1. If it's the last doctor that helped him with his foot yes but, if it's the one that got killed and he was happy then no. Explain the good doctor. Because the doctor treated him kindly and did whatever possible for ELiezer's foot.

    2. It's the national army of the Soviet Union. This army was created by the Soviet Union. This group was formed in the civil war of Russia.

    3.It's the medical person.

    4. I would have left with my father. I would have left with him because if I didn't deep inside I would have felt horrible and I would have felt like a betrayer to my father.

    5. He meant that there was two parts to him the body the tired one and him the persistent one that doesn't want to give up. Also that he was stied of dragging "a body"

    6. It means that they had become so common to hard labor that they had just become masters at everything like stronger than death, hunger, and the cold.

    7. I don't know what this is so I'll ask and write it on a piece of paper or write it again on the blog.

    8. He's describing Juliek's violin.

    9. I think it was when he left with his father to accompany him to Gleiwitz. It's quite ironic because many people died but anyway he saved his father's life by going with him.

  3. Part 1

    A1. Elie Wiesel did feel comfortable around his doctor. This is because the doctor was a great Jewish man who was a prisoner like every other Jewish. Also, he was a very kind person who gave Elie hope just by looking at him. "There was a balm in every word he spoke, and every glance he gave me held a message of hope" (Wiesel 75). Ellie truly trusted the doctor and the book even says that he was glad that it was the doctor who had made the decision to operate Elie's leg.

    A2. The Red Army was the people who came to rescue them. They are said to be Russian and they act like the saviors in this story. “The Red Army they said, were advancing on Buna; it was only a matter of hours now” (Wiesel 76). Unfortunately, Elie chose the wrong decision and was not able to be rescued at this time.

    A3. The Red Cross was the people who wanted to save the Jews from the holocaust. It says there were false rumors saying that the Red Cross were negotiating with Hitler to release the Jews. “negotiations-with-the-Red-Cross-for-our-release, or other false rumors....” (Wiesel 76). But it seems like they sent the Red Army to rescue them instead.

    A4. I think I would have stayed because if I were Elie, I would have the wounded foot. I think that I would think that I would not make it with the injured foot. Also, I would consider about my father and probably come to the conclusion that the journey would be to tough on him. “For once we could decide our fate for ourselves” (Wiesel 78). It’s a very tough decision though.

    A5. Wiesel means that because of the strain and the pain, Elie began to think that his body and mind were separate beings.His body felt so heavy even though it was practically only skin and bones. I think that Elie was frustrated that he ordered his body to run faster, but but it could not. He wasn’t mad at himself though, only at his body.

    A6. I think Wiesel wrote that they were the masters of the world because at that moment, for them, nothing existed but themselves. "we were the only men on earth" (Wiesel 83). They forgot everything else and were just running for their lives.

    A7. Sorry, the question's unfinished. But I think that son's very mean although I guess he just wanted to live that badly. Also, I think since I've never been in the same situation, I could not have imagined what it felt like. I think Elie understood though, but wished that he would never do the same thing as the son.

    A1. He is describing the corpse of Juliek, the violinist, who was Elie's friend. Juliek's violin was smashed next to him. I think that Juliek treasured his violin so much, that he died with it. "I thought he had gone out of his mind. What use was the violin here?" (Wiesel 89). His last piece really touched Elie's heart, making him really sad that Juliek died in the morning.

    A9. I'm not really sure what this question is referring to, but I think this is the part when Elie's father was told to go left and Elie was to go the other way. Elie followed his father, causing such chaos, that some people who were supposed to go the left were able to go to the right, among them were Elie's father. I think that it might have been ironic because Elie did not really 'save' his father. What lay in front of them was pure pain. Also some people were killed in the process. Elie might have been able to save his father, but in that act, some lost their lives. "However there was some shots and some dead" (Wiesel 91) Elie saved his father, but was indirectly responsible of the murder of others.

  5. 1. He was comfortable around the doctor because he treated Eleizer nice so he could rest until he recovers.

    2.A soviet army made by the Soviet Union.

    3.an international philanthropic organization, formed to care for the sick and wounded in war, secure neutrality of nurses, hospitals, etc. The hospitals now a days have a red cross sign on the building.

    4.I would have left with my father because I would not want to lose my father, and die at the concentration camp.

    5.He meant by when his foot had been hurt, it was a bad timing to hurt because he was working. So, he is comparing him self and his body.

    6.He was so used to the hard times (Hunger, cold, etc.), he was proud of him self.

    7.I don't get the question.

    8.He is talking about the violin Juliek had.

    9.He helped his father when everyone was starting to die, he went to Gleiwitz with his father, which is pretty ironic.

  6. 1 I think he was comfortable because the doctor was kind and was trying his best to fix his foot. But maybe Elizer didnt trust him at first.

    2 The Red army were the russian troops in WW2. They were called the soviets.

    3 The Red cross is an hospital that is in the army.

    4 I would of left with my father. Because i wouldnt betray my father, it would be horrible and i dont want to die alone or live alone.

    5 This means that he didnt wanted to stop and give up but his body want listen to him because he is weak and doesnt have strength left.

    6 This means that they were rulers or ruling the jews. They were like kings while the jews were like slaves doing labor.

    7 sorry i dont get the question......

    8 I think what it means is about Juliek the violinist and his violin. Julieks violin got smashed and brokend infront of him and he was shocked and killed him self because it was his treasure.

    9 I think its ironic because it was just luck. Some jews were told to go to the right and the other to the left but Elizer followed his father and every body got mixed up and started to go to the wrong direction.

    1. Yes, because he did not have to do hard labor in the infirmary. He was served good food and could peacefully rest. Also, the doctor was very kind to him, so he felt very comfortable while staying. “…we were entitled to good bread, a thicker soup. No more bell, no more roll call, no more work. From time to time, I was able to send a piece of bread to my father” (Wiesel 78).

    2. The Red Army was the national army of the Soviet Union. The army played a large role in gaining victory over the Axis powers in the Second World War, and they freed the Jews in the story. “The Red Army was racing toward Buna: it was only a matter of hours” (Wiesel 80).

    3. The Red Cross was an international movement to look after people’s health. “…the-Red-Cross-negotiating-our-liberation, or other fables…And often we would believe them” (Wiesel 80). The Red Cross tried to free the Jews in the story, and there were rumors in the camp that they were negotiating for liberation.

    4. If I was Elie, I would have left with my father like he did. According to the other prisoners, the patients were to be entirely liquidated, so there was more chance of living if we left. “‘All the patients will be finished off on the spot,’ said the faceless one. ‘And in one last swoop, thrown into the furnaces’” (Wiesel 81).

    5. Elie meant that he felt that his body and mind were separate. He was angry at his body because it could not run as fast as he wanted it to be. He was too exhausted and tired that his body felt very heavy, and he became anxious that he might fall and die like the others.

    6. Elie wrote so to explain that he and his fellow prisoners became so exhausted and got used to pain and fatigue that they no longer felt anything hard on them, and were not scared of death anymore. They overcame death into a calm state, which he called masters. “We had transcended everything-death, fatigue, our natural needs” (Wiesel 87).

    7. I was not able to answer this question because it wasn’t finished. I will try to answer it as soon as it gets finished. I think that Rabbi Eliahu’s son was very selfish. However, I could partly understand the son’s actions. I think he left his father because the fear to death was so huge that he could no longer care for anyone else than him.

    8. He is describing Juliek’s violin. It was lying beside its owner, Juliek, who died while Elie was sleeping. Elie was greatly depressed by his death because he was moved by Juliek’s last performance. “He was playing his life. His whole being was gliding over the strings” (Wiesel 95).

    9. Elie saved his father’s life by going after him and making disorder so that some people including them could go to the right side. His actions were ironic because they saved his father while killing others. “Still, there were gunshots and some dead” (Wiesel 96). And although he was just going after his father, not intending to save him, his actions in a way resulted in sacrificing other people for his father.

  9. 1. Did Elie feel comfortable around his doctor? Why or why not?
    Elie did feel comfortable around his doctor. I think this way because Elie and the doctor both shared the same belief. Anyone can rely on people who have the same belief.

    2. Who was the Red Army? You might need to look this up to respond correctly.

    The Red Army are the people who came to save the people in the camp, but unfortunately Elie takes the wrong path and loses his chance on being rescued.

    3. Who is the Red Cross?

    The red cross are also a group of people who wanted to save the jews from the holocaust. They sent the Red army to save them.

    4. If you had been Elie, would you have left with your father or stayed? Why?

    I would have left with my father, because it isnt scary if you take a path with people you know. If your in a situation like that, its hard to think of a path, i think this is a really hard question, because it depends on how badly Elie was injured, and if the path would be possible or not.

    5. What did Wiesel mean when he wrote that "there were two of us: my body and I. I hated that body"(85)?

    I think Wiesel meant that the body and his soul was divided into two, because of too much scares. I think he was irritated about his body cause it couldnt do much. I think he thought it was useless, and thats why he hated it.

    6. Why does Wiesel write that they had become the "masters of the world" (87)?

    I think that the hard work has trained to be really strong, and I think they got use to the tiered feelings, and starvation.


    7. Why does Elie feel that Rabbi Eliahu's
    Im not sure of the question.
    Maybe a typing mistake?
    I will ask tomorrow.

    8. What is Wiesel describing as a "trampled...eerily poignant little corpse" (95)?

    I think it is the violin that Juliek had. When Juliek died, the violin "died" with Juliek, making it look like as if it was some sort of corpse.

    9. How did Elie save his father's life? Why can this act seem ironic?

    I think this is when Elie went to Gleiwits with his father for accompany. Im not sure if its Ironic...

    1)Elie did feel comfortable around the doctor. This is because the doctor was a fellow Jew and a prisoner like Elie. Also, to Elie, it seemed like the doctor gave him glances of hope.”My doctor was there. That reassured me. I felt that in his presence, nothing serious could happen to me. Every one of his words was healing and every glance of his carried a message of hope” (Wiesel 79). He was also very comfortable in the infirmary because he was given more food and he could rest from work there.

    2)The Red Army was a demobilised Russian army, when in 1918, the Soviet government ordered to form an army consisting of workers and peasants. The Red Army was a very big army and incorporated 5,000,000 men at the end of the war. The Army fought against the German Nazis and tried to save the Jews. “The Red Army was racing toward Buna: it was only a matter of hours” (Wiesel 80).

    3)The Red Cross was an organisation, staffed with people who tried to protect the Jews. There were rumours around the camp that the Red Cross were negotiating the Jew’s liberation. “It wasn’t the first time that false prophets announced to us: peace-in-the-world, the-Red-Cross-negotiating-our-liberation, or other fables… And often we would believe them… It was like an injection of morphine” (Wiesel 80). The Red Cross attempted to save the people in concentration camp by sending food parcels.

    4)If I were Elie, I would have left with my father because if I didn’t, I probably would regretted not staying together with my father. Also, my father would have lost hope if we weren’t together to give each other hope. Also, I would not have wanted my father to be like Rabbi Eliahu, searching all over for his son. “…’Where has he disappeared? Where can I find him? Perhaps you’ve seen him somewhere?’”(Wiesel 91).

    (Part 2)

    5)When Elie wrote that, he meant that he felt like his body was an excess part of him. His body felt heavy and was just an additional weight. He couldn’t help thinking that his body and mind were separate and his mind was just dragging his body along. His mind wanted to run faster and get there but his body was too tired to do what his mind wanted to do. “I was dragging this emaciated body that was still such a weight. If only I could have shed it!” (Wiesel 85).

    6)When Elie said he a master of the world, he is explaining to the reader that even though the SS were replaced when they got tired, they couldn’t be replaced. Without being replaced, they had encountered everything that goes against their health. They had felt cold, hungry and tired so much that they thought they had feared everything possible and only masters of the world can survive them. They were stronger than death. “We had transcended everything-death, fatigue, our natural needs. We were stronger than cold and hunger, stronger than the guns and the desire to die, doomed and rootless, nothing but numbers, we were the only men on earth” (Wiesel 87).

    7)The question is incomplete. However, Elie thought that maybe Zalman, Rabbi Eliahu’s son, wanted to get rid of his father. Maybe, noticing that his father was falling behind, he ran faster to free himself of the burden that could lessen his chance of surviving. “He had felt his father growing weaker and, believing that the end was near, had thought by this separation to free himself of a burden that could diminish his own chance for survival”( Wiesel 91).

    8)He is describing Juliek’s violin as an eerily poignant little corpse. He described the violin as poignant because the sound of Juliek’s violin was so beautiful. Juliek had played his soul through his violin and it was as if the violin was alive, that that was the only thing they could do to satisfy themselves before dying. They were saying goodbye to the world and their dying future. When Juliek died, so did his violin. “How could I forget this concert given before an audience of the dead and dying?” (Wiesel 95)

    9)Elie tried to save his father by going after him over to the left. By doing this, he created such confusion that people were shot in the confusion. This meant that he was killing people who did not need to be killed, instead of saving people’s lives, in the place of his father. This is ironic because he was meant to be “saving” his father but killing people instead. Still, they were able to switch to the right and so did some other people. “Several SS men rushed to find me, creating such confusion that a number of people were able to switch over to the right-among them my father and I. Still, there were gunshots and some dead” (Wiesel 96)

    1. Elie felt comfortable around his doctor because he was Jewish and let him rest peacefully. He provided him plenty of food and warm sheets. I think the doctor tried to cure ELizer's leg as best as he can.

    2. The Red Army was an Russian army. The Army fought against the German Nazis so for Elizer and others they relied on them.

    3. The Red Cross was an organization which tried to save the Jews. They tried to save the weak, poor ones who wounded at the war. Hopitals have an red cross to represent this.

    4. If I were Elizer I would have stayed with my family because without somebody there is no use to live there. They lived for each other and his father might have lost hope. He didn't want to be like Rabbi Eliahu's son and leave his own father alone for himself.

    5. Wiesel meant that his body was just heavy and distracting. He felt that his body and soul were two different things because even though he wanted to run faster his body was too tired. He wished he did not drag it with him because he would suffer less without his body.

    6. Wiesel wrote that they had become the "masters of the world" because they were used to hunger and coldness. They suffered so much in other concentration camps and hardly felt any more of them. They became stronger than death.

    7. The question is incomplete.

    8. I think the author meant about Juliek and his violin. The violin was so important to Juliek more than anything else because he was worrying about his violin than himself. Juliek and the violin played an beautiful piece, and before morning came the violin died with Juliek.

    9. Elie saved his father's life by going to the left side with him even though Elie was supposed to go to the right. It caused confusion that some people on the left were able to go to the right. It is ironic because some people who tried to go to the right were shot.

  17. 1. Elizer felt comfortable around his doctor because the doctor was a very nice Jewish and he was a prisoner like Elizer. Elizer trusts the doctor and also the doctor too.

    2. Red army is an russian army by Vladimir Lenin the october revolution. Also they are workers and people helping.

    3.The red cross is an organization that supports communities for keeping people safe. They help people who are sick, homeless, and ingered people. Also they donate money to help the poor countries.

    4.If I was Elizer i would go to the left side with my father even though he would die. Because Eliezers father helped him and supported him so i would support him back.

    5. I think he was tired because even though he wants to run faster his body wont move or listen and maybe he was mad or frustrated. I think he feels too tired that his body and soul is separated.

    6. I think they say they are the master of the world because they were having a hard time and they were use to it so i think it means they were scared of nothing. Eliezers mind was blank and empty and he could think about nothing.

    7. I think Rabbi Eliahu is a nice person because he was loved by everyone in the camp, but also Eliezer thought of him as a nice person.

    8. I think the part where it says "trampled little corpse" is explaining about the smashed violin next to him. The violin was too important to him that maybe he died with the violin.

    9. Elie saved his fathers life but this may seem ironic because he saved his father while people were killed. Elie was able to save one life but also many lives were killed to help one life.

  19. 1.Yes, Elie did feel comfortable near the doctor. The doctor was Jewish its self too and was not different from the other Jews. He served some food to Elie and helped him a lot

    2.The red army was a Soviet army made by the Soviet union, who came to rescue Elie and the others.

    3.The red cross was a group of people who didn’t want to help the people who were in the holocaust but the people who were wounded and injured because of the war.

    4. If i was Elie, I would not leave my father behind. I would stay with my father because I’m here because my father was next to me. If Elie left his father, he would of not survived a long painful trip.

    5. Wiesel meant that he himself was the “I” but someone else, the “body” was with him. While running, it was painful but he kept running. He himself was able to run, but the other him, the body stayed with him and made him have a hard time while running.

  20. 6. Wiesel wrote that they were the masters of the world because they were. Wiesel wrote that they were the only men on Earth. They survived a long trip of suffering. There was nothing that could stop them from living.

    7. Because the question is not finished, can’t write the answer it.

    8.What Wiesel is describing is Juliek and his violin. Juliek was playing the violin the whole night, no. He was playing his life. Juliek played his life with a violin and died the next day. The violin laid next to him, and both of them, ended its life.

    9.Elie saved his father in many ways. One way from the book was when Elie taught his father how to march. Elies father wasn’t able to march that good but Elie taught him how too. If his father still couldn’t march, he would of probably died. Elie did not really try to save his father that much but every action that he took saved his father and himself. By following his father, he saved his life. Without the existence of Elie, his father would of probably died way before.

  21. A1. Yes, he felt comfortable around his doctor. "Every one of his words was healing and every glance of his carried a message of hope" (Wiesel 79). Feeling well hearing his words means he feels comfortable around his doctor. Also he was a very nice Jewish doctor who cares about Elie's health, so I think many people wouldn't feel uncomfortable being around him.
    A2. The Red Army was the Soviet Union's revolutionary Russian army. In Night, The Red Army were at the concentration camp to rescue the Jews. "The Red Army was racing toward Buna: it was only a matter of hours" (Wiesel 80)
    A3. The Red Cross was also people that wanted to help the Jews in the concentration camp; although they hadn't come to the camp, instead of the Red Army coming. "It wasn't the first time that false prophets announced to us: peace-in-the-world, the-Red-Cross-negorating-our liberation..." (Wiesel 80).
    A4. I would of left with my father. At this point, the father is rather weaker than Elie. When Elie was weak, his father had saved him and helped him to Elie by giving his foods, and caring about him. So I would of stayed with him, trying to support him. "I did not return to the infirmary. I went straight to my block." (Wiesel 82). That seems brave in a way, but not, in this situation.
    A5. Because he had a sore foot, it was hard for him to walk, and move as much as he was able to do before. Himself knew what to do, but his body wouldn't allow him, and Elie was afraid of getting killed being late. "I kept repeating to myself: Don't think, don't stop, run!" (Wiesel 86)
    A6. "We were the masters of nature, the masters of the world. We had transcended everything --- death, fatigue, our natural needs." (Wiesel 87). He said this because he had no longer needed help; people were stronger than cold and hunger, stronger than the guns and the desire to die. They were not afraid.
    A7. skip
    A8.Elie was describing Juliek, a boy who'd love his violin, and die with its violin. When his death came, all he worried was about his violin; worried that it's not going to be broken by others. He played a Beethoven the night before his death; and died, next to his violin. "When i awoke at daybreak, I saw Juliek facing me, hunched over, dead. Next to him lay his violin, trampled, and eerily poignant little corpse." (Wiesel 95).
    A9. When the SS officers sent the weak, to the left, and those who can walk well, to the right, his father was sent to left. Elie runs after him, but SS officer stops him. He saved his father's life by running after him and try to make him and his father go to the right; so that they won't kill them. His actions were ironic because he had to replace the others, for them to survive. But I think I would of done it if I could save my father.

  22. forgot the last question (A9) 's quote:

    "The SS officers were doing the selection: the weak, to the left; those who walked well, to the right. My father was sent to the left. I ran after him. An SS officer shouted at my back: 'Come back!' I inched my way through the crowd. Several SS men rushed to find me, creating such confusion that a number of people were able to switch over to the right --- among them my father and I. Still, there were gunshots and some dead."

  23. 1. Elie was comfortable around his doctor because he was kind and he treated Elie well. Also, he did everything he could do to Elie's foot.

    2.The Red Army is a Russian army who fought the German Nasiz in WW2. They tried to save the Jews.

    3.The Red Cross is an organization who tried to protect the Jews.

    4.If I was Elie, I would have left with my father because I would want to be with my father. Also if I stayed, there will be nobody I know.

    5. Wiesel lost his leg, so I think it means that he hated his boby. I think it's because he didn't have a leg, and he couldn't walk. He hates his body, so he says there are two of him.

    6. Wiesel says they are the masters of the world, because they were no longer scared of death. Also, they were used to the hunger and cold.

    7. Skip

    8. Wiesel is describing his violin as a "trampled...eerily poignant little corpse" (95). Because Juliek was dead, and next to him layed a violin. Juliek was still and lifeless, and the violin was still and lifeless too.

    9. Elie saved his father by going to the left side even if he wasn't supposed to. This act caused confusion, so some people were able to go to the different side. It's ironic because he saved his father's life while killing other people.

  24. 1. Eie was very comfertable with his docter because he was jewish. Unlike others who wanted to take advantage of Elie, the Docter actually cared for him and wanted to heal his injured foot.

    2. The Red Army was created by the Soviout Reunion. It is an Russian Army. Thy went concentration camps to rescue Elizer and everyone else.

    3. The Red cross was an international Hospital. It was made mainly for war. The hospital takes care of people who are sick, injured, homeless, and not cared for.

    4. If I were Elie I would probably have went with my dad to the left side. I know that I would have probably be killed but I was His son so I left him it would be like betraying my Father. And besides I was family so that means that he raised me and also helped me with my problems.

    5. I think that even though he wanted to run faster, his legs just wouldent listen to his It was like his heart was trying to run harder, but his mind had enough.

    6. Elie said he was "the master of the world" because he already suffered a lot at the concentration camp so it was like nothing. He suffered cold, darkness, pity and more,m so it was nothing compared to what is happening.

    7. The question is not finished.

    8. He was describing Juliek's violin. Juliek was playing his violin for as long as Elie could remember. He was playing for his life but then while he played hedied so his violin rested next to him. They both ended their lives.

    9. Elie ran after his father to stop him and tell him to go to the right. Elie saved his father but while he did many lives were lost. Elie may haved saved one but to do so used up others lives

    1. Elie felt uncomfortable the dentist doctor around because he did not have any toothache, but he was told to go to the dentist. And so he knew what it meant. And it meant that he was going to get his crown taken. But, if it was the doctor who helped recover Elie's foot swallen by snow, the doctor was very nice, and Elie did feel comfortable.

    2.It was the group of people who worked for war. The group is from Soviet Union, currently Russia.

    3. Red Cross helps prepare communities for emergencies and keep people safe every day, which is from the U.S.

    4. I would've left with Elie's father. Because he worked hard to make me born, and worked hard to afford food, and I wouldnt want to leave that person.

    5. Wiesel meant that Elie was feeling too much pain, and he hated the body in pain, that he hated it.

    6. He meant that the jewish ppl. were feeling pain too much they didnt care dying or not.

    7. unanswerable

    8. About Juliek's violin.

    9. When all the dead people were about to be thrown out, and the Germans thought Elie's father were dead, and tried to take him away, Elie try to wake him up, and he did, and was saved. It was Ironic because of the way Elie tried to wake him up. He was hitting and slapping hard, which is not what you normally do to a person between life and death

  30. 1. Elie felt comfortable around his doctor. It was because the doctor was a Jewish man who was a prisoner just like Elie. The doctor was also nice and kind. He let Elie eat well, and relax his body.

    2. The red army was the Russian army made by the Soviet Union. The army fought with the German Nazis to help Elie and the others.

    3. The Red cross is an organization who saves the weak and poor Jews. Also, they help the Jews from the holocaust.

    4. I think I would have left with my father because it there is someone you know it is better to stay with your father rather than being by your self. Also, Elie's father supported Elie.

    5. It meant that his body and his soul was separated. He was angry because he wanted to run faster but he couldn't. Also, he was so tired that his body felt heavy.

    6. I think the hard work made him very strong that he couldn't feel any pain and the hunger or the coldness. So they are stronger than death.

    7. Skip

    8. It is describing about Juliek the violinist and his violin. For Juliek, the violin was alive that when if had smashed, Juliek killed his self.

    9. Because Elie came to the left side even though he wasn't allowed, he saved his father's life. It was ironic because while the other people were getting killed Elie saved him.

  31. 1. Basically Elie was comfortable around his doctor, since he was a real patient but also the doctor himself was a Jewish man. He was different from other doctors because Elie appreciates the doctor for helping his foot and he also gains trust from the doctor. "My doctor was there. That reassured me. I felt that in his words was healing and every glance of his carried a message of hope" (Wiesel 79). This describes that Elie trusted the doctor, which therefore means that Elie felt comfortable with him.

    2. The Red army was armed forces from Soviet Union. "Perhaps the Russians will arrive before" (Wiesel 81). Also the Red army is significant for trying to fight against the German Nazi's and they were also helping to save the Jewish people.

    3. The Red Cross was an private organization who were trying to free the Jewish people from the concentration camp. 'Don't be deluded. HItler has made it clear that he will annihilate all Jews before the clock strikes twelve" (Wiesel 80). But this never really happened.

    4. If I was Elie, I would have stayed with my father since he has been the most supportive character for Elie. Since Elie isn't a doctor or anything he really doesn't have a choice to help his father even though he is really ill, suffering from dysentery. "I did all I could to give him hope" (Wiesel 108). Somewhere in his heart, I'm pretty sure Elie was ready for his death to come, but at the same time he wanted to be close to him, to appreciate him for everything he had done for him.

    5. I think Wiesel meant that all of "I" contained the thoughts, his life, his brain, his experience; or everything that Elie knows, remembers, or did. His body on the other hand is something he needs to "drag", something that doesn't have any feelings or emotions; more like a heavy flesh that is kind of meaningless, since he needs lots of strength to survive in the camp. "I was hearing my father's words, but their meaning escaped me, as if he had asked me to carry the entire shed on my arms..." (Wiesel 88).

  32. CONTINUED

    6. I think what Wiesel meant by "Masters of the world", is that they have went through so many heartbreaks, loss of people and the whole experience as they survived in the camp. This made them really stronger emotionally, and physically, which makes them the masters of the world since no one else have went through these kinds of pain. "We were stronger than cold and hunger, stronger than the guns... we were the only men on Earth" (Wiesel 87). The survival of the camp (for now) made them the masters of the world.

    7. Unfinished question.

    8. The violin was like a part of Juliek's body, so the "little" corpse was his violin laying besides him as he died. "A violin in a dark barrack where the dead were piled on top of living?" (Wiesel 94). It also describes how much he loved his violin and how much he cherished it. So that is why Wiesel described the violin as a trampled...eerily poignant little corpse.

    9. Elie saved his father's life just when everyone was running on ice, and when Elie put an eye on him. But in a way, his father was giving up at that time so by Elie saving his father's life may seem ironic maybe perhaps his father wanted to rest from all of this chaos going on. "My father had huddled near me, draped in his blanket, shoulders laden with snow. And what if he were dead, as well? I called out to him. No response. I would have screamed if I could have. He was not moving" (Wiesel 98). Elie was hoping for his father not to die at this point, because he believed that he could still live and survive. But ironically speaking, his dad might have been to tired to survive and live throughout the camp Gleiwitz so Elie's act can seem ironic.

    1) Eliezer felt really comfortable and supported when Eliezer is with the doctor. That is because the doctor is a Jewish prisoner like Eliezer and that made Eliezer feel better. The doctor was also very kind and generous, which made Eliezer motivate on his life.

    2) The Red Army is the Russian army force that was attacking the Nazis in this story. Later, the name changed to Red Army to Soviet Army. Eliezer and his other prisoners felt relieved and they are relying to the Red Army to fight the Nazis.

    3) The Red Cross is an organization that provides emergency assistance internationally for being injured, etc. The Red Cross usually provides support at war, natural disasters, and poverty. In this case, the Red Cross were trying to liberate the Jews from the Germans.

    4) If I was Eliezer, I would probably stay because your father is pretty much the only one left thats close in touch and you don't want to lose him without knowing what happened to him, etc. I think I won't be able to escape with my wounded foot, and if my father was with me, he would support me.

    5) This quote means that Eliezer is thinking that he there are two parts of his body: The body and himself. When Eliezer was running, he thought of that because he didn't want to stop to think and he would simply describe that his "body" is dragging "himself". This emphasizes that all he could do now is just run, until you die.

    6) Wiesel wrote that because he thought that him and his prisoners went through many pain and sorrow although they still haven't gave up their hope to live. This quote also tells me that Wiesel is trying to tell the reader that they are really strong both mentally and physically.

    7) Unanswerable question!

    8) This quote describes about Juliek, who was playing a Beethoven song on the violin. It is basically about the violin, and its describing it metaphorically. Overall, this quote means that Juliek's violin is compared to a little corpse, although it also describes that it is touching in Eliezer's point of view.

    9) It is ironic because when the SS officers forced the Jews to command to go the left if you are weak and to the right if you can walk well. As a result, Eliezer and his father got separated because Eliezer had to take right and Eliezer's father had to take left. Eliezer prevented his father to go left because there was a possibility that the all of the people who took the left path will get killed. Eliezer prevented his father's death while others were getting killed.

  34. 1)Yes, he did feel comfortable due to that the doctor was also Jewish and a prisoner just like Elie. The doctor felt pity for Elie, so he didn't only cured his foot, also he gave Elie advices about the selection, which basically saved his life.

    2)In this book the author mentioned that russians were the Red Army. Red Army plays a major role in the World War Second, because they were the ones who fought a lot to rescue all the people from concentration camps and to get free from Nazis.

    3)Red Cross is a community which protects people and helps them. It was founded in Switzerland. It is worldwide and one of the main sources of help.

    4)If I was Elie, I would totally stay with my father. Because if Elie would survive without his dad he would be free but alone. I think it's better to stay together until the last days of life, than apart and being lonely.

    5)He meant that after this horrible time in concentration camp his mind and "body" if we could call it a body, because there were only skin and bones left were like two different things. Just pretend to not have a normal meal for very long time. It would be such a torture to be in that body. Also in his mind he was very angry that he has to handle all this.

    6)Wiesel meant that those men who were at the concentration camps didn't take starvation, cold or a lot of work as a huge deal anymore. They had been working so much and got good at everything. Those men could stand that ridicuolus attitude towards them from Nazis. All that made them extremely strong not only in a physical way.

    7)I am sorry, I didn't really get the question, but I will try to asnwer it.
    Elie couldn't believe that the guy Zalman tried to get rid out of his his father, Rabbi Eliahu. Zalman and his father were in camps for years, just like Elie and his dad. After all that how can you want to be separated from the closest person, your father. Elie was hoping to not be like Zalman.

    8)For Juliek, his violin was the important part of him. Even when they were evacuating, Juliek took his beloved violin with him. After his death, the violin died too, because it was the part of his soul.

    9)Elie's father was sent to the left side which was for the weak. Of course Elie couldn't just leave it like that, so he ran to the left side causing so much confusion. He save his father. Maybe the ironic part is that to save his dad he caused deaths of other people.

    A1. Yes, he felt. The doctor was really kind to him and gave Elie foods such as soup. He didn't have to do labor. So, Elie could feel comfortable.

    A2. They came to the place that Elie was for rescue the prisoners, but actually Elie couldn't rescued at that time.

    A3. Red Cross was from USA. They protected and helped people who got hurt.

    A4. I would stay with father even if I could die. May it would scary of death, but it would be more scary if people who I love as like as my family die.

    A5. He got mad at his body that it didn't worked what his brain wanted. He should run and run to escape from the army, but his body didn't run just because of physical strength.

    A6. It meant the Jews. The prisoners(Jews) including Elie got lots of hurt and stresses of the death, but they didn't seemed to scary. They tried to pray until during the Holocaust.

    A7. unanswerable

    A8. It meant the violinist, Juliek's violin. Juliek loved the violin and had been proud of it. Juliek finally died, but at that moment, he was with his violin.

    A9. Elie went to Gleiwitz and saved his father. It seemed irony because at that time, people were all ran out and killed by SS, but Elie saved his father with weak body.

    1) I believe Elie Wiesel did feel comfortable around his doctor, because the doctor was a good jewish man who was also a prisoner like every other Jewish person. Also, he was a very kind person who gave Elie hope just by looking at him. Ellie truly trusted the doctor and the book even says that he was glad that it was the doctor who had made the decision to operate Elie's leg.

    2)The Red Army was the people who came to rescue them. They are said to be Russian and they act like the saviors in this story. Unfortunately, Elie chose the wrong decision and was not able to be rescued at this time.

    3) The Red Cross were people who wanted to save the Jews from the holocaust. Rumors has it that the Red Cross were negotiating with Hitler to release the Jews but it was false. It seems like they sent the Red Army to rescue them instead.

    4) If i was Elie I would've stayed because I wouldn't have wanted to left my own father. If I leave, i could've been shot or taking by the SS officer. If i have stayed I would most likely to survived and be safe.

    5) It could've meant that he was sick of being hungry and weak, and wanted to be stronger. Since he was starving and became really weak he was unable to do anything so he said he hated it. Another reason i believe is that he was in a lot of pain and he couldn't cope with it.

    6) 1). I believe Elie Wiesel did feel comfortable around his doctor, because the doctor was a good jewish man who was also a prisoner like every other Jewish person. Also, he was a very kind person who gave Elie hope just by looking at him.

    5) It could've meant that he was sick of being hungry and weak, and wanted to be stronger. Since he was starving and became really weak he was unable to do anything so he said he hated it. Another reason i believe is that he was in a lot of pain and he couldn't cope with it.

    6) The reason i believe Wiesel wrote that they were the masters of the world because they were actually the "masters". He wrote that because they were the only men on Earth. So they survived the long trip of suffering. Meaning the people had nothing that could stop them from living.

    7) Can't answer it

    8) I believe that it wasn't about Julieks violin. To me it sounds more like hes playing for his life. He has been playing the violin his whole life. They started together and ended together.

    9) The german army thought Elies father was dead when throwing out the dead bodies, and so they tried to take him away. Elie then tried to wake him up, and so he did, and that meant he was saved. The reason this is ironic because of the way Elie tried to wake him up. He was hitting and slapping himself, which isnt normal to do before dying.

  39. 1.At first, Elie was comfortable being in the doctor's place. But after he met the Hungarian Jew, he got a bit worried because he told Elie that the Germans don't need any sick people. He was confused because he didn't know if that's the truth or not. "Germany has no need of sick Jews...leave the infirmary before the next selection"(Wiesel 78).

    2.The Red Army is the name of the army of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. This was mainly used in the time of World World Two. They defeated the Germans. "The Red Army was racing toward Buna: it was only a matter of hours"(Wiesel 80).

    3.The Red Cross is the organization for saving people's life. In the story, there were rumors that the Red Cross was trying to free the Jews. "peace-in-the-world, the-Red-Cross-negotiating-our-liberation,or other fables"(Wiesel 80).

    4. If I was Elie, I think I would have left with my father. It is because we don't know what will happen if we stay in the infirmary. And same as Elie, I think I will follow where ever he goes. "I had made up my mind to accompany my father wherever he went"(Wiesel 82).

    5.I think the quote means that his body and his mind don't go together well. He is injured so he can't do what he wants to his body. But in his mind, he thinks and want to do move hEs body. "I was putting one foot in from of the other...such a weight"(Wiesel 85).

    6.It means that Elie and the others got stronger that they overcame death, tiredness, and horror. Since there were many people getting killed, it is a special thing that Elie was still surviving. I think he feels acomplishment. "We had transcended everything...only men on earth"(Wiesel 87).

  40. 1.Elie felt comfortable around his doctor because he is Jewish just like Elie and his fellow prisoners. He was also trustable and to Elie, it seemed that if the doctor was there, nothing terrible would happen. "My doctor was there .That reassured me. I felt that in his presence, nothing serious could happen to me. Every one of his words was healing and every glance of his carried a message of hope" (Weisel 79).

    2.The Red Army was a russian army formed from workers and peasants. There were 600000 people at first in the army but when World War 2 started, Russia feared that the Nazis might win the war and therefore 1300000 men formed the army. They were involved in liberating concentration camps, and death camps. "The Red Army was racing toward Buna: it was only a matter of hours" (Weisel 80).

    3.The Red Cross is an international organization that cares for the sick in wartime. There were rumors that the Red Cross was negotiating their liberation but they did not know it were true. "peace-in-the-world, the-Red-Cross-negotiating-our-liberation, or other fables....And often we would believe them"(Weisel 80).

    4.If I had been Elie, I would have stayed with my father like him because if I had stayed in the infirmary, I would have died straight on the spot. I would like to live the last moments of my life with my father, and not be separated.

    5. Wiesel means that there was the body which was injured and could not walk, and "I" was the one that does just did not want to give up. "I was putting one foot in front of the other, like a machine. I was dragging this emaciated body that was still such a weight" (Wiesel 85).

    6. They became the masters of the world because they had "transcended everything-death, fatigue, our natural needs" (Wiesel 87). So now, they were "stronger that cold and hunger, stronger than the guns and the desire to die, doomed and rootless, nothing but numbers, we were the only men on earth" (Wiesel 87).

    7. ?

    8. Wiesel is describing Juliek's violin as an eerily poignant little corpse. Juliek loved his violin and he played it full of love even though it was not allowed. He sacrificed himself just to play the violin. "When I awoke at daybreak, I saw Juliek facing me, hunched over, dead" (Wiesel 95).

    9.Elie saved his father's life by running to the direction he went. This caused confusion and they were able to switch to the side which were allowed to live. This is ironic because Elie saved one person but lots of other people were killed. "able to switch over to the right---among them my father and I. Still, there were gunshots and some dead."

  44. 1. I think he did feel confortable around the doctor. The doctor treated Elie very kindly and gave him better food. The doctor was a Jew, like him, so Elie trusted him.

    2. The Red Army is the army from the Soviet Union, who fought against the Nazis in World War II. They came and tried to rescue the Jews from the Nazis.

    3. The Red Cross is an organization for helping people. They help people who are in disasters such wars and earthquakes. In World War II they were trying to help the Jews to become free from the Nazis.

    4. If i was Elie, I would have left with my father, because I wouldn’t want to be separated from him. Elie’s father had been loyal to him, so I wouldn’t have stayed behind in the camp.

    5. I think he meant that his body was his foot and I was how he felt. His foot hurt so his body wanted to stop walking, but Elie himself did not want to stop, or he would be shot.

    6. He means that because the Jews always were being treated badly, they were used to horrible things such as death and needs. It seemed as though they had become stronger then anything.

    7. ?

    8. It was describing Juliek’s violin. His violin was so important to him so when Juliek died it seemed as though his violin died with him. His violin seems to be described as a living thing, because of its importance to Juliek.

    9. Elie saved his father’s life by going to the same side as his father. This caused a diversion, and his father’s life was saved, but other people got killed because of it. This makes it ironic.

  45. A1.Elie did feel comfortable around his doctor. Probably because the doctor was a well skilled Jewish doctor, and a prisoner himself. Elie felt that with the doctor operating him, nothing serious will happen. " Every one of his words was healing and every glance of his carried a message of hope."( Wiesel 79).This is what Elie thinks of before the operation started. However he did feel afraid being in the infirmary, afraid that a selection will be held and he will lose the chance of survival.
    A2. The Red Army was a Russian army in the Soviet Union who helped fight the Germans during the war."Rumors swept through the camp that the battlefront had suddenly drawn nearer." ( Wiesel 80).News had come to the camp that the Red Army were coming and it was only a matter of time. There was once hope again.
    A3. The Red Cross is also an oraganization that helped the Jews during the war." peace-in-the-world, the-Red-Cross-negotiating-our-liberation..."(Wiesel 80).Though in Night, the Red Cross isn't mentioned as clearly instead it was given as a false prophets to Elie and other that the Red Cross were negotiating their freedom.
    A4.If I were put in a situation like Elie, I would have left with my father." We had already suffered so much, endured so much together. This was not the moment to seperate."(Wiesel 82).Just like Elie, this wouldn't be the time for me to leave my father and go alone. Even with such uncertainty to what will happen to us, together we have suffered this much together, and with rumours that the Russians were coming in rescue, my hopes would lit up. There would be no point of giving up any chance of staying together with my family if the end to the war was almost there. But I've never been in such a harsh situation before so if i really were in it, there is also a possibilty that my dicision would change.
    A5. Elie means that his thought and soul weren't with his body anymore. He's legs hurt terribly, but on the other had his mind hated himself for having that kind of injured legs during the time. " If one of us stopped for a second, a quick shot eliminated the filthy dog."(Wiesel 85). Not only his mind wanted to move although his body won't, he had to move because if he didn't he would be shot to death just like those who couldn't keep up the pace during the thrip.
    A6.They had become stronger in meaning they had become masters of the world."We had transecended everything-death, fatigue, our natural needs." (Wiesel 87). Despite how much Elie's foot hurt he was still running, they were all still tunning. They were strong, stronger than ever before probably because of all that they had experienced, they were used to it, they could fight the coldness the hunger. But in a way i think they are all numbed, not just physically but also mentally. They had forgotton the good things in life, only that they were still running alive.
    A8. The sentence describes Juliek's violin but at the same time describing him. They were both lifeless before Elie's eyes. In a way, i think its good that Juliek died with something he loves. "I shall never forget Juliek."(Wiesel 95)
    He has also left a strong image in Elie's life, him in person and he's beautiful music that he played during the horrible times.
    A9.Elie ran to the left side with his father, saving his life. "Still, there were gunshots and some dead."(Wiesel 96). While it was a brave thing to do. the action seemed ironic since he was saving someone when others just like him were getting killed.

    7. I don't really get that question. So I will talk about Rabbi Eliahu. He is a man who is loved by everyone, and his words bring peace. Right now, he is searching for his son. "It happened on the road...seen him somewhere"(Wiesel 91).

    8.I think it descrbies how Juliek loved his violin very much. Even he played it where there were many corpses. It means that he was a bit weird. The way he died was sad because he died with his violin. "I saw Juliek facing me, hunched over, dead"(Wiesel 95).

    9.It is because Elie was actually going to follow his father, but instead it turned out to be a good thing. It is ironic because Elie didn't actually save his father. But maybe, he had good luck. "My father was sent to the left. I ran after him. An SS officer shouted at my back"(Wiesel 96).

  47. PART 1

    1. I think that Elie felt comfortable around the doctor, not only because the doctor was Jewish, but because he actually cared for Elie's foot. "Every one of his words was healing and every glance of his carried a message of hope" (Wiesel 79). This quote illustrates how comfortable he was with the doctor, because Elie was able to relax in his presence.
    2. The Red Army is highly credited for winning the Second World War, and was an armed force of the Soviet Union. They were known for aiding the defeat of the Nazi's as well as trying to help the Jewish people. "The Red Army was racing toward Buna: it was only a matter of hours" (Wiesel 80).
    3. The Red Cross also played an important role in World War 2. They provided things for people that didn't have enough to get by, and this included the attempt to save the Jewish people. "It wasn't the first time that false prophets announced to us: peace-in-the-world, the-Red-Cross-negorating-our liberation.." (Wiesel 80).
    4. I think that I would have stayed because I would of rather died with my father than to risk going on and then dying alone. "My father's presence was the only thing that stopped me. He was running next to me, out of breath, out of strength, desperate. I had no right to let myself die. What would he do without me? I was his sole support" (Wiesel 86-87). It's just the idea of going on alone kind of puts me off, because I'm not with anyone I know. I'd rather not take chances by pressing on by myself.

  48. PART 2

    5. Elie probably wrote that because he considered his foot to not be part of his body anymore, since it was badly injured. "I tore my blanket and wrapped it around my foot.." (Wiesel 83). It didn't move like he wanted, so I think he thought is foot wasn't useful as part of his body like his mind was.
    6. Elie thought that the other people in the camp and he himself were the masters of nature because they were being pushed to their physical and mental limits, yet, they were able to keep running past their boundaries because the thought of death was keeping them going. Although the SS guards were replaced when they were tired, the prisoners weren't. "We were the masters of nature, the masters of the world. We had transcended everything --- death, fatigue, our natural needs. We were stronger than cold and hunger, stronger than the guns and desire to die, doomed and rootless, nothing but numbers, we were the only men on earth" (Wiesel 87).
    7. The question is unfinished.
    8. Elie is describing Juliek, who was a boy who cherished his violin. The night before his death, he plays a Beethoven piece, then dies right next to his violin. "I don't know how long he played. I was overcome by sleep. When I awoke at daybreak, I saw Juliek facing me, hunched over, dead. Next to him lay his violin, trampled, an eerily poignant little corpse" (Wiesel 95).
    9. Elie saved his father's life when he was separated and sent to the left, when he ran after his father to make him go to the right so he could survive. The ironic part of it is, while Elie tried to do this, some other people were shot. "A word flew through our ranks: selection! The SS officers were doing the selection: the weak, to the left; those who walked well, to the right. My father was sent to the left. I ran after him. An SS officer shouted at my back" (Wiesel 96).

  49. 1) I think that Eliezer did feel comfortable around his doctor, because the doctor was Jewish and a prisoner like Eliezer – “I went to infirmary. The doctor, a great Jewish doctor, a prisoner like ourselves, was categorical:”We have t operate! If we wait, the toes and perhaps the leg will have to be amputated”” (Wiesel 78). Also, when Eliezer asked for water, the doctor did bring water for him, with a caring smile – “He had water brought to me… He was smiling. He was ready to walk out, to see other patients” (Wiesel 79). Also, Eliezer was very sure that doctor will help him & had faith in him – “My doctor was there. That reassured me. I felt that in his presence, nothing serious could happen to me” (Wiesel 79). Because of the doctor’s thoughtfulness/understanding and kindness (because he was a Jewish prisoner as well), Eliezer had felt quite comfortable with the doctor.
    2) Red Army was the armed forces from Russia (Soviet Union) and Red Army came to free many prisoners from different places – “The Red Army was racing toward Buna: it was only a matter of hours” (Wiesel 80). From an article from Wikipedia, I also found out that Red Army was the strongest force that had dominated most of the German army, about 80% (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Army).
    3) Red Cross were people who helped Jewish – ““It wasn’t the first time that false prophets announced to us: peace-in-the-world, the-Red-Cross-negotiating-our-liberation, or other fables… And often we would believe them… It was like an injection of morphine” (Wiesel 80). This quote probably shows that people didn’t believe to the help of the Red Cross, although, this time they did because there were news that he Red Army was arriving and actually did.
    4) If I was Eliezer, I would have never left my father alone. I completely agree with the part in which the following quote was included – “”Oh God, Master of the Universe, give me the strength never to do what Rabbi Eliahu’s son has done”” (Wiesel 91). Even if my father requested me to leave him, so that I could live, I would have never done that. The reason is simple – I love my father and I won’t leave him until I die.

  50. 1. Eliezer felt comfortable with his doctor mainly because he was also Jewish. Because of this, the doctor could somewhat sympathize with Elie for how he felt. He was also very encouraging saying things like "Don't be afraid, everything will be alright," (Wiesel 59).

    2. The Red Army was the national army of the Soviet Union. Originally, it was a faction of the civil war, but soon it became the Soviet Union's national army. It's called "Red", for the bloodshed by the working class as it fought against capitalism. The Red Army was the army that liberated Buna. "The Red Army was racing towards Buna: it was only a matter of hours", (Wiesel 80).

    3. The Red Cross is an organization that tries to help people who are suffering from war, such as prisoners like the Jews of Auschwitz, or refugees of other countries. "We were quite used to this kind of rumor. It wasn't the first time that false prophets announced to us: peace-in-the-world, the-Red-Cross-negotiating-our-liberation, or other fables...It was like an injection of morphine," (Wiesel 80).

    4.If I was Elie, I probably would have stayed with him. Even in a time of horror and torture, I wouldn't have a good excuse to make myself leave him. If we were going to die one way or the other, I would at least want to die with him. "We had already suffered so much, endured so much together. This was not the moment to separate,"(Wiesel 80).

    5. I think that Elie felt so motivated to run, both because of the SS officers behind him and that he could stay warm, that he felt like his body had taken control of itself. He also wanted to run faster, and was so tired from the months of food deficiency, that he felt as if he was "dragging this emaciated body that was still such a weight", (Wiesel 85).

    6. I think that Elie, as well as all the other Jews, were so motivated, that they forgot everything else. "We had transcended everything - death, fatigue, our natural needs," (Wiesel 87). In a sense, you could say that they were better then everybody else because they had no worry over food, death, or tiredness because there life depended on the running from point A to point B as fast as possible.

    7. (Although the questions is not finished), I think that Rabbi Eliahu's son, if Elie's predictions were correct, was very disrespectful and disobedient to his father. It struck Elie that someone do such a thing. In fact, although he had apparently lost all faith in God, he makes a prayer for himself. "Oh God, Master of the Universe, give me strength never to do what Rabbi Eliahu's son has done," (Wiesel 91).

    8. Elie is describing Juliek's violin. Juliek took his violin very seriously, so seriously that he actually brought it with him in the face of death. "I...I'm afraid...They'll break...my violin...I...I brought it with me,"(Wiesel, 94). Because of this, Elie uses personification to describe the violin, giving it the right to be called a "corpse", as if it were once a living thing.

    9. Elie saved his fathers live significantly when they were on the train, volunteers would haul anyone who wasn't moving off the train. Elie's father looked to be dead. "'Leave him alone. Can't you see he's dead?' 'No!' I yelled. 'He's not dead! Not yet!' And I started to hit him harder and harder. At last, my father half opened his eyes. They were glassy. He was breathing faintly," (Wiesel, 99). This is ironic because in the end, he is said to have thought "Free at last!...,"(Wiesel,112), even though that he made so much of an effort to keep him alive...

  51. 1. Elie felt comfortable with his doctor. This was because he was Jewish, and a prisoner like everybody else in the concentration camp. Also the tone of the doctors voice was gentle and it reassured Elie. " 'My' doctor was there. I took comfort from this" (Wiesel 74).

    2. The Red Army was a strong army of the Soviet Union during the war, and they basically defeated the Nazis. In the book they attacked Buna. For the Jews, they were hope for the Nazis' defeat. "The Red Army, they said, was advancing on Buna" (Wiesel 76).

    3. The Red Cross is an international organization that exercises peace, and fair human rights. In the war they took care of the wounded, ill, homeless etc. In the book, they came out for only a glimpse. "peace-on-earth, negotiations-with-the-Red-Cross-for-our-release" (Wiesel 76).

    4. If I had been Elie I would have stayed with my father. Even though I would have an injured leg, I wouldn't want to lose my father, since he would be the only close person left to me. If he wasn't there I'd probably become depressed. "The choice was in our hands" (Wiesel 78).

    5. I think Elie meant that his body was an extra, unneeded thing. All his emotional burdens were enough for him. Also, connecting to the fact that he was tired at that time it seems natural to think of your body as a separate thing that you can get rid of. "I was dragging with me this skeletal body which weighed so much" (Wiesel 81).

    6. Elie propably meant that even though the prisoners were forced to run over their limits, they still had the potential keep their pace up. Even the SS men could not keep their pace. All the prisoners wanted to do was to live, so they kept on going, as if they were feeling nothing. "We had forgotten everything-death, fatigue..." (Wiesel 83).

    7. I cannot answer this question.

    8. I think that Elie is describing Juliek's violin which fell to the floor along with Juliek's body. Since Juliek's image loved his violin so much and his image was the violin, the violin seemed to be a large part of him, so it could be called a corpse. "It must have been Juliek. He played a fragment from Beethoven's concerto" (Wiesel 90).

    8. Elie saved his father's life when he and his father were separated. Elie predicted that his father would be killed if he went a different way from him, so Elie stopped him, and made him go the way he was going instead. The ironic part is that some people who went the way his father was going were killed while Elie saved his father's life. "However, there were some shots and some dead" (Wiesel 91).

  52. 1. Elie felt comfortable around his doctor because he was trusting the doctor. He was calm and listened to what the doctor said. He was also relaxed before the operation started.

    2. Red Army was an army of soviet union. It was created during the civil war.

    3. Group of people that have a symbol of a red cross.

    4. If I am Elie, I would have left with his father because his father is a good person. They helped each other a lot. Elie and his father will both get sad or hopeless if they got separated.

    5. I think this quote means that Elie didn't like his outside. I think he wants more powerful and strong body. This will help him move faster and he wouldn't get tired or knocked out easily.

    6. Wiesel wrote that phrase because Elie thought that they are the strongest. He also thought they are the only men. Men means a people who is strong and have a courage.

    7. Not possible to answer

    8. This quote represents Juliek. He was playing a violin, but when Elie woke up, he was dead. Wiesel described his corpse.

    9. Elie saved his father's life by slapping in the face hard. He was very desperate to wake his father wake up because he liked his father and the SS were throwing out the corpse. This act seem ironic because if Elie didn't save his father, his father will sleep forever and rest in peace. His father would have a freedom.

  55. 1. Yes. He did feel comfortable because he is also Jewish and a prisoner in the concentration camp. “At ten o’ clock in the morning, they took me into the operating room. My doctor was there. I took comfort for this” (Wiesel 75).

    2. Red Army is a former Soviet military, which lasted until 1946. Flag colored by red represents the blood for laborers mans people worked hard to establish the nation). “How close the Russians were! Between them and us-one night, our last night” (Wiesel 79). Russia invaded Germany, therefore people in concentration camp needed to march until Gleiwitz during the winter.

    3. Red Cross is an association, where they help those in need in addition to gathering blood donations and bolster people. “A false prophet had foretold to us peace-on-earth, negotiations-with-the-Red-Cross-for-our-release” (Wiesel 76). Red Cross tried to help out prisoners in concentration camp.

    4. I would have stayed. Elie’s father was the only person who can be trusted and rely on. I don’t want to leave my father. “I had no right to let myself die. What would he do without me? I was his only support” (Wiesel 82). This quote clearly explains that Elie needs to survive to support his father and himself.

    5. Although, Elie had an intention that he wanted to run, his body couldn’t listen to his instruction and he was already fatigued. “I repeated to myself: Don’t think. Don’t stop. Run” (Wiesel 81).

    6. Because he survived from the frigid condition. However, many people died from freezing to death. “We had forgotten everything-death, fatigue, our natural needs. Stronger than cold or hunger, stronger than the shots and the desire to die, condemned and wandering, mere numbers, we were the only men on earth” (Wiesel 83).

    7. “A terrible thought loomed up in my mind: he had wanted to get rid of his father!” (Wiesel 87). Elie thought Rabbi Eliahu’s son is very selfish. After he stayed with his father in the concentration camp for 3 years, he got tired of keeping company.

    8. Juliek playing piano in front of corpse. “He said farewell on his violin to an audience of dying men” (Wiesel 90). When Elie woke up the next morning, he saw Juliek slumped over and dead. The violin was laid besides the dead Juliek.

    9. Elie helped his father in many ways. One great example is when his father was listed .. Then Elie gave his spoon and knife to use just in case. In addition there was a place where Elie ran into the Gestapo to make confusion, and during that confusion, Elie’s father moved from left to right. “Creating such confusion that many of the people from the left were able to come back to the right-and among them, my father and myself. However, there were some shots and some dead” (Wiesel 91). This is very emotional scene but it is also an ironic because he sacrificed others to save his father.

    1. Yes, I do feel that Elie was comfortable around his doctor. This was due to the fact that he was both Jewish, and a prisoner, so he felt a bond, or a kind of connection between the doctor and himself. " Every one of his words was healing and every glance of his carried a message of hope."( Wiesel 79). Having a comfortable "relationship" with his doctor helped him carry on on his journey through the concentration or labor camp.

    2. Originally, The Red Army was the Soviet Union's national army during the Civil War. The Red Army later became a Soviet Union/Allies controlled army that grew increasingly during the time of World War II in order to fight against the Axis power and to protect the lives of their fellow Allies. “The Red Army was racing toward Buna: it was only a matter of hours” (Wiesel 80).

    3. The Red cross is an organization that helps countries and people in need by providing food and other emergency necessities in order to save the lives of others. During World War II, the Red Cross provided help for the prisoners of war by sending parcels of necessities, but still following war regulations and rules. “negotiations-with-the-Red-Cross-for-our-release” (Wiesel 76). Depending on the location of which they sent the parcel to, it would help immensely or help little, either way, it was a source of help overall and without the Red Cross, more lives might have been lost.

    4. If I was Elie, in that exact situation, I would try to stay with my father for as long as he was able to survive, therefore I would have left with him. I would try to help him survive through all the ordeals, and try to keep him strong. If I didn't leave with him, I might have had the same fate as all those who were unlucky and were sent to the furnace.“‘All the patients will be finished off on the spot'" (Wiesel 81). Although I may have put myself first in a situation like that, I would also care for my father because to Elie, he was one of the strongest source of support throughout the concentration camp.

  57. 5. What he meant was that although he, as a human being, was a whole, he felt as if he was split into two because what was outside, did not reflect his inner personality. I was dragging this emaciated body that was still such a weight" (Wiesel 85). He was trying to say that his mind, was not with his body both mentally and physically, his mind wanted to carry on but his body was barely keeping on.

    6. He wrote this because due to the horrific events of the concentration camp, people's minds became corrupted and their logical thinking was replaced with the thoughts of greed and needs. Some, who were originally normal people, would become savages and fight to the death for only a piece of bread. "We were the masters of nature, the masters of the world" (Wiesel 87). I also think he meant, as a result of the incidents, everyone had become stronger both mentally and emotionally therefore nothing could "harm" them.

    7. incomplete question, therefore this question cannot be answered.

    8. He is describing a musical boy called Juliek who used his violin as an escape from the incidents around him. “He was playing his life” (Wiesel 95). Music, to him was his life, and so was his violin, He had loved his violin so much, he would have rather died instead of letting go of his beloved instrument, therefore he was trampled by the rest of the prisoners and unfortunately died.

    9. Elie saved his father's life by following his father, but due to him moving, he was able to save his father because if he and his father would have gone to his father's side, they would have both died. “Several SS men rushed to find me, creating such confusion that a number of people were able to switch over to the right-among them my father and I. Still, there were gunshots and some dead” (Wiesel 96). The irony to this is the fact although he had saved his father's life, he has several others accidentally killed because of his sudden reaction to go with his father.

  58. 1. Eliezer did feel comfortable around the doctor because first of all he was Jewish and prisoner just like Eliezer. Also, he knew that he didn't have to labor and that he would be treated well. Eliezer started to have some kind of hope from him because of the doctor's nice actions towards him.

    2.The Red Army is an army formed by the Soviet Union who was against Nazis and came to rescue people. Even though at this time, Eliezer couldn't be saved because he chose a wrong decision, their arrival became a hope to the prisoners.

    3.Red Cross is an international organization to help sick or injured people and also to get the blood donation from people. It was a great help during WW2 because they took care of every injured people with no discrimination. Its symbol is a red cross and appears in most of the hospitals now.

    4. I would probably have stayed with the father, because even though if i left him alone i would live but not him. I would lose the most important and reliable person for my own life. I think that I wouldn't be able to live without him afterwards because he already did a lot and without him, Eliezer wouldn't probably have lived until here.

    5.For Eliezer, they were two different things: body and mind. Even though the mind and emotions would say to do something, his body wouldn't move for it. He lost his own body during his journey at the concentration camp because of all the things he had to go through. Now, for him, his body was only a some kind of block for his mind to think and act freely.

    6.He meant that now that he got through all of these labors, hunger, cold.. etc. there were nothing else to make them suffer more than they already did. They were in a way stronger than anyone in the world not in power but in experience because they did survive after all this horror. Also, he could have meant that they were the masters because there were no one else than themselves which meant that no one else survived and that they were prepared for anything as well.

    7.I cannot answer..

    8.He is describing Juliek's violin which was laying next to its owner. The death of Juliek during Eliezer's sleep was a real tragedy for Eliezer. Because, Juliek love his violin, and it was mostly a part of the musician, Wiesel could also call the violin as a corpse which belonged to Juliek.

    9.I think this question is referring to the moment when Eliezer followed his father instead of going right. His action made a big chaos which let some people to go left and also to bring his father on the right. This was ironic because Eliezer wasn't actually trying to ''save'' him but to stay with him and follow him. Also in other way, it sacrificed other people's life for the father's life only.

  59. 1. At first, Eliesel felt comfortable around his doctor. One of the main reasons is because the doctor was a Jewish like Eliesel. Also a prisoner like everyone else in that concentration camp. Eliesel also could trust him because he tried his best to help his foot. However in the end, Eliesel gets kind of scared because he thinks that maybe the doctor will cut his legs off, but Eliesel trusts him becuase the doctor said very encouraging words like "Don't be afraid, everything will be alright," (Wiesel 59).


    2. The Red Army was a weak army from beginning of the Soviet Union, but it got stronger and stronger by the time passed, and finally they defeated the Nazi. According to the book, Night, the Red Army attacked Buna. However, the Jews were hoping for the defeat of Nazi by the Red Army. "The Red Army, they said, was advancing on Buna" (Wiesel 76).

    3. The Red Cross, is a group of people that are trying to help people who are suffering from the war, for example like injured,and also prisoners of Jews in Auschwitz. "peace-on-earth, negotiations-with-the-Red-Cross-for-our-release" (Wiesel 76).

    4. If I was Eliesel, I would have stayed with my father. However nobody will know the truth because Eliesel was about to leave him in the end. Also with an injured leg, nobody's sure.But of course, I'm a son of my father so I would never want to leave him. ." We had already suffered so much, endured so much together. This was not the moment to seperate."(Wiesel 82). As you could realize in this quote, that they suffered already a lot with each other, which makes them more love each other.

  60. 5. For me, the reason why Eliesel hated his body, was his body was one hundred percent different from his spirit. He wanted to stay with his father, he wanted to give his soup and loafs of bread to his father, but his body, which he hated couldn't resist of having those foods. As you could see, the body was an unneeded thing, that he hated, like an extra. You could also realize that in this quote, that he hated his body, "I was putting one foot in front of the other, like a machine. I was dragging this emaciated body that was still such a weight" (Wiesel 85).

    6. He would have meant that even the prisoners who were running were catching their breaths and reaching their limits, they sitll had the potential energy to keep their speed up. Which shows that those prisoners who were running wanted to do anything to live, so they kept on going. So the pains were too much that it reached its limit and became numb. "We had forgotten everything-death, fatigue..." (Wiesel 83).

    7. I cannot answer this question. yay

    8. As you could see in the book, he's describing about the Julike's violin, when unfortunately fell over with its owner, Julike when he died.

    9. Eliesel saves his father's life for being with him and encouragning him to live. But as the time passed, he couldn't, he just wanted his father to not get hit by Gestapo. So in the end, Eliesel doesn't get to be with his father, and just lets him die. Which is very ironic. "However, there were some shots and some dead" (Wiesel 91).

  61. 1. Did Elie feel comfortable around his doctor? Why or why not?
    Elie felt very comfortable because the doctoer was also Jewish and one of prisoner.
    2. Who was the Red Army? You might need to look this up to respond correctly.
    Red Army is the group against the Nachi's they tried to save all Jewish people but Elie couldn't be save at that time
    3. Who is the Red Cross?
    It's like a group at the begining who have help a lot's of people specially during World War 2 they like cure and take care of sick or injured people.
    4. If you had been Elie, would you have left with your father or stayed? Why?
    If I was a son of any father I would stay with my father. That is just how it goes don't need any excuse or reason.
    5. What did Wiesel mean when he wrote that "there were two of us: my body and I. I hated that body"(85)?
    At that time Elie didn't have any freedom for his own body at all. But for now his only freedom is moving his body by himself noy by listening to other.
    6. Why does Wiesel write that they had become the "masters of the world" (87)?
    What they have thourgh were can't be worst than anything else they already had biggest pain so they are like masters of the world
    7. Why does Elie feel that Rabbi Eliahu's
    Because Elie was kind of tired of keeping a company.
    8. What is Wiesel describing as a "trampled...eerily poignant little corpse" (95)?
    Elie is saying the violin Juliek had a corpse because Juliek died already and only thing left behind was Juliek's violin.

    Not sure.

  62. 1)Eliezer felt really comfortable around the doctor because the doctor was also an Jewish prisoner and he helped Elizer by healing his legs.
.


    2) The Red Army is the Russian army that supported the Jews by fighting against the Nazis. The Jews depended on the Red Army from rescuing from the Nazis. Later on, the Red Army changed their names to the Soviet Army.



    3) The Red Cross is a international organization for helping the injuries or illness people. The Red Crosses usually helps the people who gets injured in wars or nature disasters, for example Jews in WW2 and Red Armies fighting with the Nazis.



    4) If I was Eliezer, I would probably stay because Elizer and the father overcame all the problems and the horror together so then were abled to survive. Elizer didn’t want to be alone, always sticked with his father, his only hope and his father is actually the only one who cared about him the most.



    5) I think the quote means that when he was marching or running, he, himself were abled to run. But his body, the wounded body couldn’t run, while the Elizer in the inside wanted to run. He kept on telling his body to move on from the inside when he was dragging his foot in the coldness.

    

6) Wiesel wrote that quote because Elizer and the other Jews experienced many terrifying and violent happenings over the camp so then they have no word “fear” in their minds.

    

7) SKIP

    

8) This quote is about Juliek, who played the Beethoven music on his violin. Juliek passed away when Elizer was sleeping and he thought of Juliek, last playing his violin.



    9) It was ironic because the SS guards told the Jews to go to right if they had strength and go to the left if they were weak. But Elizer followed his father and made the SS guards confused so some of the people who were suppose to be executed lived.

  63. 1)Yes he was comfortable because the doctor was very kind to him and he served good food.
    2)I think that Red Army was Russian Army.
    3)The red cross is an organization for helping Jewish people "It wasn't the first time that false prophets announced to us: Peace-in-the-world, the-red-cross-negotiating-our-liberation. or other fables......" (Wiesel80).The people didn't believe to help of Red Cross but this time they helped.
    4)If I was Elie, I will not leave my father. I will stay with my father because if I left, I will be free but I will be alone and scare.
    5)It means Wiesel doesn't have his leg and couldn't walk so he hated his body.
    6)It means Elie got stronger so they become master of the world.
    7)???
    8)I think it means about Juliek the violinist .
    Juliek was dead and next to him layed a violin.
    "When I awoke at daybreak, I saw Juliek facing me, hunched over, dead. Next to him lay his violin, trampled, an eerily poignant little corpse"(Wiesel95).
    9)I don't know...

  64. 1. He felt comfortable because the Dr. help him and used kind words with him. The Dr. was a prisoner too they could relate.
    2. The red army was the Russian army.
    3.The red cross is an international organization that gives medical help.
    4.I would leave like Elie did because I wouldn't want to stay in the camp not knowing what was going to happen.
    5. When he was running he was crying because he was so tired and sick. He didn't want to run but he knew his body had to .
    8.The little corpse Elie talks about is Juliek's body and his violin.
    9.Elie saves his father's life by pulling him back to the other side. This is ironic because others died because of the noise he made.

  65. 1. Elie was comfortable around the doctor. Partly because the doctor was also Jewish, but mostly because he was nice to him and very positive toward him. "'Don't be afraid," he said. "'Everything will be all right"' (Wiesel 79).
    2. The Red army was the Russian Soviet Union. They were the reasons that the Jews had their freedom, and they "defeated" the Germans, so the Jews can have their freedom. "The Red Army was racing toward Buna: it was only a matter of hours" (Wiesel 80).
    3. The Red cross is a medical association that was used in during WWII. They were and still are used to help wounded people and soldiers in war. "It wasn't the first time that false prophets announced to us: peace-in-the-world, the-Red-Cross-negotiating-our-liberation, or other fables..." (Wiesel 89).
    4. I personal, would probably not leave, but at the same time, I would like to leave, because then I can somewhat assure myself that I would be a little bit more safe. But on the other hand, I would stay because I have already endured so much suffering and so much pain, that there would be no point in leaving. "Now, it no longer mattered that the work was hard. All that mattered was to be far from the block, far from the crucible of death, from the center of hell" (Wiesel 74).
    5. Possible from this quote, it is telling us that he has two contrasting personalities. The body, and the term "I" are two different things. One of the personalities he has is positive and happy, but the other one is negative, and hateful. "I was no longer able to lament. On the contrary, I felt strong. I was the accuser, God the accused" (Wiesel 68).
    6. Elie probably said that they were the masters of the world, because even though they had suffered so much, since being captured they were still alive. After all that they had been through, they were still breathing and somewhat healthy. "To no longer feel anything, neither fatigue nor cold, nothing" (Wiesel 86).
    7. Question not done, can't answer.
    8. Juliek was a very talented violin player, and when he was eventually murdered, his violin was near him when he died. It was his most prized possession, and he took it everywhere he went. "' I'm... I'm afraid... They'll break...my violin... I...I brought it with me"' (Wiesel 94).
    9. Elie saved his father's live. Even though he saved his many other's people's live was sacrificed and that is what is ironic about this whole situation. "Still, there were gunshots and some dead (Wiesel 96).
