6:. Theme 1: Faith? Or Foolishness?

Night

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

At the beginning of Night, faith is as natural to main character Eliezer as breathing is. His belief in a good God is absolute … until he begins to witness the horrors of the Holocaust. That’s why Night‘s main theme is about faith—and whether anyone’s faith can survive in the face of so much evil.
