Transcript

  • 1. Night by Elie Wiesel Study Guide Notes
  • 2. Night Study Guide Notes
    • The original title Elie Wiesel gave the novel was And the World Has Remained Silent .
    • He wrote this book after 10 years of silence.
    • By the end of the Holocaust, over 6 million Jews had been killed.
  • 3. Night Study Guide Notes
    • There are five motifs to look for while reading Night :
      • Night – pay attention to what happens at night and what that might symbolize. Remember what we learned when we talked about archetypes and what night might symbolize.
      • Bearing Witness – Pay attention to which characters are witnesses and to what they bear witness.
  • 4. Night Study Guide Notes
    • Motifs (continued):
      • Father-son Relationships – Pay attention to how Elie and his father’s relationship develops; in addition, notice other father-son relationships in the book.
      • Loss of faith – Notice how Elie’s faith in God changes as the book progresses. Write on your study guides where these changes occur.
  • 5. Night Study Guide Notes
    • Motifs (continued):
      • Voice vs. Silence – Who has a voice and who chooses to remain silent? Why might Elie Wiesel title his novel what he did originally, and why did he no longer remain silent?
    • From the 10 Core Concept notes, we will learn that Poland had the largest population of Jews in Europe.
  • 6. Night Study Guide Notes
    • In Poland, 90% of the approximately 3,000,000 Jews were murdered in the Holocaust.
    • As you read, look for times that Wiesel mentions the people in surrounding towns.
    • There are several groups who contributed to the Holocaust, persecutors and by-standers included.
    • Why are by-standers just as important as the persecutors?
