In Night Elie Wiesel challenges his belief in God at Auschwitz Wiesel is constantly surrounded by some of the most gruesome acts of inhumanity in our entire history He thinks if God can let something happen like such a large genocide then what his presence really for Wiesel went into Auschwitz with no struggle at all with his faith He was once asked why he prays and he replied Why did I pray Why did I live Why did I breathe There is definitely a struggle with his God but it is clear that he never gives up on God What kind of faith would he really have if he never questioned it Wiesel is deep in one of the worst death camps ever His family is torn apart and people he knows are dying all around him He has to see his own father cry and question his existence He can not believe that all this cruelty can reflect the presence of a God If God is omniscient and can do whatever he wants why would he let such terrible things happen Wiesel was questioning his faith Never shall I forget that night the first night in camp which has turned my life into one long night seven times cursed and seven times sealed Never shall I forget that smoke Never shall I forget the little faces of the children whose bodies I saw turned into wreaths of smoke beneath a silent blue sky Never shall I forget those flames which consumed my faith forever Never shall I forget that nocturnal silence which deprived me for all eternity of the desire to live Never shall I forget those moments which murdered my God and my soul and turned my dreams to dust Never shall I forget these things even if I am condemned to live as long as God Himself Never Wiesel says this one night after surviving a day
