7. Theme 2: Silence

Night

Elie Wiesel, 1960
Famous for: Unflinching descriptions of Holocaust brutality, a search for faith, survival.

Night is full of horrors. The brutality that Eliezer witnesses throughout his journey is unimaginable. And yet, the Nazis’ treatment of the Jewish people isn’t the most disturbing part of Eliezer’s experience. What he struggles with even more than the violence turns out to be Night‘s second theme: Silence.
