2: The Summary
You could say that Elie Wiesel gave the ending away just by writing _Night_. In other words, even if you already know about the millions of people who were murdered during the Holocaust, you know that Elie Wiesel wasn’t one of them. You know because he lived to write this book. That’s why _Night_ is a story about survival.
