Nayef Jaber Period 2 March 1, 2011 Night Faith Essay Although most people hold onto their faith all their lives one man’s faith fades while his life is in danger and the God he loved and believed in wouldn’t help. In the memoir Night by Elie Wiesel, loss of faith is shown when he sees the Jews getting burned in the crematories, and Akiba Drummer was talking about worshiping God, and when the other people were praying on Rosh Hashanah. When the Jews of Sighet were first kicked out of their city they were taken to Auschwitz they saw other people getting burned in crematories. Elie’s response to when the Jew recited the Kaddish was “Why should I bless His name? The Eternal, Lord of the Universe, the All-Powerful and Terrible, was silent” (25). Elie has shown that he has no faith in God while he sees this. He refuses to say the prayer for the dead because God isn’t stopping this from happening. Elie denounces his faith and refuses to believe that God is there.
