In the autobiographical story Night by Elie Wiesel we read of the authors horrifying account during the Holocaust Through his trials and experiences we see him lose his faith in his religion along with in humanity and in justice Wiesel tells of his loss of his faith in God Before the Holocaust began he was becoming very interested in reading the Talmud and even begins teachings under Moshe the Beadle Unfortunately Elie feels an immediate loss of his faith once entering the camp He sees the crematory smells the flesh-burned smoke and feels changed in an instant Never shall I forget those moments which murdered my God and my soul and turned my dreams to dust 32 This experience brought on this loss The author also looses faith in humanity He hears of SS officers brutally threw babies into the air the machine gunners used them as targets 04 He witnesses the killing of old men and children by way of the crematory among other things But the inhumanity was not limited to the people in higher power In the camps Elie hears of his father being beaten for his rations even though his is very ill by fellow prisoners Even German citizens threw bread on wagons full of hungry men just to see the spectacle that would occur Wiesel could hardly see the good in anyone but his father and himself Mr Wiesel lost his faith in justice He felt distrust with the Hungarian police At one time they served to protect Now they were organizing the roll call and the deportations with cruelty Ones who were once known as friends are now like brutal strangers Also Elie cannot see how those Jews who chose to dishonor their own could be rewarded Those who cooperated with the SS and reported any suspicious behavior received greater rations and were put in charge of the ghettos and the wagon cars They were betraying their fellow man
