LOSS OF FAITH Eliezer lost his faith when he realized that if all this bad stuff is happening how is there a God letting it happen. “Some talked of God, of his mysterious ways, of the sins of the Jewish people, and of their future deliverance. But I had ceased to pray. How I sympathized with Job! I did not deny God’s existence, but I doubted His absolute justice” (42) “Never shall i forget those moments which murdered my God and my soul and turned my dreams to dust”(32).

INHUMANITY Eliezer realizes that humanity is lost when he realizes that the Germans were burning children and just people in general like if they were nothing. “Fire! I can see a fire! I can see a fire!”(22) “But i told him that i did not believe that they could burn people in our age, that humanity would never tolerate it….’Humanity? Humanity is not concerned with us. Today anything is allowed. Anything is possible, even these crematories…’”(30).

Unformatted text preview: Eliezer had to fight for his life, starving, trying to not get picked for selection, and help his father live too. “the old man cried:...you're killing your father... i've got some bread...for you too...he collapsed.. His son searched him, took the bread and began to devour it. He was not able to get very far. Two men had seen and hurled themselves upon him. Others joined in. when they withdrew, next to me were two corpses, side by side, the father and the son. I was fifteen years old” (96) SOURCES torted-by-ignorance-is-inhumanity/ ents%20and%20Teachers.htm...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
