Notes Night - Elie Wiesel Night was created by Eliezer, a 15-year-old Jewish teenager, who lives in Sighet, in Hungarian Transylvania. Eliezer studies the Torah and the Cabbala. From his teacher, Moishe the Beadle, who’s been deported. Moishe returns, telling a tale about the Gestapo (German secret police force) who took charge of his train, led everyone into the woods, and killed them. Nobody believes Moishe. In 1944, the Nazis settled in Hungary. Soon, a series of increasingly strict measures are passed, and the Jews of town are forced into small neighborhoods within Sighet. Afterward, they are put into cattle cars for days and nights, exhausted and nearly dead, the passengers arrive at Birkenau, the gateway to Auschwitz. On the third day of their arrival, the group looks in terror at flames rising above huge ovens and gags at the stench of burning flesh. Guards holding batons force Eliezer’s group through a selection of those fit to work and those who die. Eliezer and his father, Shlomo, lie about their ages, Eliezer went from 15 to 18 and Shlomo went from 50 to 40. To depart with other strong men to Auschwitz, a concentration camp. Eliezer's mother and his three sisters disappear into Birkenau, the death camp. Every day, Eliezer and his father struggle to keep themselves healthy so they can remain in the workforce. After three weeks, Eliezer and his father are forced to march to Buna, a factory in the Auschwitz complex, where they sort electrical

    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.
