Necessity is the mother of invention This is a very famous quote that is widely accepted worldwide But when invention is impossible something else must be compromised to compensate this need When people are pushed over the edge and do not have their physical needs met they turn to inventions brother Corruption and become corrupted and become callused to the suffering and pain of others There are many examples of this in Elie Wiesels Night Three examples of this in the book are when Rabbi Eliahou is abandoned by his son when the men of the train fight each other and when Wiesel is emotionally unaffected by his own fathers death The first example of this corruption in Night was how Rabbi Eliahous son abandoned his father while being transported to another camp Believing that he could not cope with the hunger and strain and take care of his father Rabbi Eliahous son purposely ran ahead of his pack and let his father lag behind trying to abandon him so he could free himself of this burden Adversely Rabbi Eliahou thought that it was an accident and continued to search for his son When Rabbi Eliahou confronted Elie to see if he knew the location of his son Elie thought A terrible thought loomed up in my mind he had wanted to get rid of his father He had felt that his father was growing weak he had believed that the end was near and had sought this separation in order to get rid of the burden to free himself from an encumbrance which could lessen his own chances of survival 87 This statement proves that the boy could not endure the strain and grew so desperate that he abandoned his beliefs and what he cared about to survive But later in the book some other examples of corruption were even more gruesome and immoral A more severe example of this corruption in Wiesels book
