    NIGHT COMMENTARY In this passage from the memoir Night by Elie Wiesel, Elie had been snatched from his home and transported to a concentration camp, in a cattle car. Passage two talks about Elie’s first experience with the Nazis, and the process of how he was treated, and how he felt.

It shows the loss of humanity, and how one can change drastically, if experiencing such events. This is further shown, when Elie says “‘The absent no longer entered our minds...their fate was not on our mind.’” The word absent symbolizes all the people who were once loved, but at this moment, all the people with Elie had lost sense of affection for the people they once loved. Elie had had his mother and his…
