Elie Wiesel 1928Elie Wiesel was born on September 30, 1928 in a rural, mountainous area called Transylvania. His hometown was Sighet, Hungary. Elie Wiesel was the only son of four children in a closely knit, Jewish family. Elie Wiesels family was sent to a concentration camp, and

obviously survived to write his memoir. For ten years, he observed a self-imposed vow of silence and wrote nothing about his wartime experience. In 1955, at the urging of the Catholic writer Francois Mauriac (see Foreword of book), he set down his memories in Yiddish, in a 900-page work entitled Un die welt hot geshvign, And the world kept silent. Wiesel compressed the work into a 127-page Night, but several years passed before he was able to find a publisher for the French or English versions of the work. Wiesel still writes his books in French, his wife Marion often collaborates with him on their English translation. He makes his home in New York City. Teaching has always been central to

Elie Wiesel's work. Since 1976, he has been the Andrew W. Mellon Professor in the Humanities at Boston University, where he is an honorary university professor. He is a member of the faculty in the department of religion, as well as, the department of philosophy. In 1986, he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts toward peace. In 1992, Wiesel was awarded the Ellis Island Medal of Honor. March 2009

The press released that along with many others, Wiesel lost millions in the Bernard Madoff scandal. Concept 1: Baby Steps Most people want it . . . Everybody needs some of it . . .

See how it feels. Then discuss the 3 days and 3 nights. Then note the mind games that are impacting these victims. These are called psychological games and they impact how we react (if we let them) For Example: Pavlovs Dog A natural instinct that correlates an action with a

reaction; for example when a bell rang the dog got fed, when the bell rang the dog started to salivate anticipating his food when the dog heard bells, he expected food Other psychological games that impacted prisoner behaviors Fear Degradation False Hope Sensory Overload Take Away and Return Divide and Conquer

Stockholm Syndrome The behavior of kidnap victims who, over time, become sympathetic to their captors. The name derives from a 1973 hostage incident in Stockholm, Sweden. At the end of six days of captivity in a bank, several kidnap victims actually resisted rescue attempts, and afterwards refused to testify against their captors. Captives begin to identify with their captors initially as a defensive mechanism, out of fear of violence. Small acts of kindness by the captor are magnified, since finding perspective in a hostage situation is by definition impossible. Rescue attempts are also seen as a threat, since it's likely the captive would be injured during such attempts. Journal 5: Chapter 3

The result is No one prisoner trusted the other enough and

actually cared enough to cooperate in order to overtake the guards and save themselves. The result is not just applicable to the Jews of the Holocaust. It is also applicable to beaten and abused individuals. The result is the same. Victims are unwilling and unable to help themselves or contribute to society.

Identify and describe how some psychological games are being used in these chapters. Concept 4: The Five Stages of Grief Frequently compared to a journey, grief involves many stages that must be traveled before life can continue to be lived. Elizabeth Kubler-Ross 1969 landmark book on the human psychology of grieving

Denial I feel fine. "This can't be happening, not to me." Denial is usually only a temporary defense for the individual. This feeling is generally replaced with heightened awareness of situations and individuals that will be left behind after death.[1] Anger "Who is to blame?" "Why me? It's not fair!" "How can this happen to me?" Once in the second stage, the individual recognizes that denial cannot continue. Because of anger, the person is very difficult to care for due to misplaced feelings of

rage and envy. Any individual that symbolizes life or energy is subject to projected resentment and jealousy.[1] Bargaining "Just let me live to see my children graduate. "I'll do anything for a few more years." "I will give my life savings if..." The third stage involves the hope that the individual can somehow postpone or delay death. Usually, the negotiation for an extended life is made with a higher power in exchange for a reformed lifestyle. Psychologically, the person is saying, "I understand I will die, but if I could just have more time..."[1] Depression

"I'm so sad, why bother with anything?" "I'm going to die . . . What's the point?" "I miss my loved one, why go on?" During the fourth stage, the dying person begins to understand the certainty of death. Because of this, the individual may become silent, refuse visitors and spend much of the time crying and grieving. This process allows the dying person to disconnect oneself from things of love and affection. It is not recommended to attempt to cheer an individual up that is in this stage. It is an important time for grieving that must be processed.[1] "It's going to be okay."

Acceptance "I can't fight it, I may as well prepare for it." This final stage comes with peace and understanding of the death that is approaching. Generally, the person in the fifth stage will want to be left alone. Additionally, feelings and physical pain may be non-existent. This stage has also been described as the end of the dying struggle.[1] Journal 9: Chapters 8-9 Provide examples for the following: Who reacted with sympathy? Explain. Who reacted with empathy? Explain. Who reacted with apathy? Explain. Journal 10: Chapters 1-9

What did you learn from Elie Wiesels novel, Night? Please provide at least 3 lessons. Concept 5: Defining a Theme Definition of a theme: -the message an author sends with his/her story the main idea of a narrative -not just a topic, but an idea The more universal the theme, the more lasting the literature.

Example 1 from Romeo and Juliet The subject/topic is . . . love. The theme is . . . Love can hurt. The thesis is . . . In Shakespeares play, Romeo and Juliet, ironically love does not always bring happiness. Example 2 from Romeo and Juliet The subject/topic is . . . appearances. The theme is . . . Reality is not always what it appears.

The thesis is . . . In Shakespeares play, Romeo and Juliet, reality is not always what it appears. Example 4 from Huck Finn The subject/topic is . . . journey The theme is . . . The journey through life is filled with crossroads, detours, and pot holes. The thesis is . . . In Mark Twains novel, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Hucks journey down the Mississippi mirrors the journey through life with its crossroads,

detours, and pot holes Worksheet for chapters 4-6 Identify three possible themes to be developed. For each theme, list three scenes/examples from the story that support your stated theme. Subject: Ignorance Theme: Ignorance is used by many of the characters to protect themselves from having to

face the realities of the war. Thesis: Many characters prefer to remain ignorant in order to protect themselves from the horrors of the real world. Good Topics Weak Topics war killing babies power of faith

surviving missed chances Rules for a good theme: must be universal must be provable must be accurate must be throughout the piece of literature ASSIGN WORKSHEET 1 Concept 6: Proving a theme Because themes are so debatable and because there really is not right

or wrong answer, the quality of the idea is determined by: 1. application of rules to the theme 2. quality of the proof to support/prove your theme 3. explanation that connects the examples to the theme and the theme to the thesis Sometimes ignorance is bliss. Can this idea transcend time and place? YES! Example 1: Is this statement accurate to the intent YES! Example 4: of the story?

Can I actually prove this statement Example 2: using examples from the story? Example 3: Is this concept illustrated throughout the story? YES! YES! Sometimes ignorance is bliss. Early in the story

Example 1: Elies family/community ignored the story told by Moche of the atrocities inflicted by the German forces. By deluding themselves, they were able to live more blissfully. Early in the story Example 2: Elies family didnt pay much attention to the atrocities of war being reported on the radio. Instead, they focused on the courtesy of the Germans in their community and felt very comfortable. Sometimes ignorance is bliss. middle of the story Example 3:While Elie and his father were in Buna, Elie chose to believe that Franek would actually hold up his

end of their deal. Elie wanted to believe this because it was the only way he could feel good about giving up his tooth. late in the story Example 4: Elie wanted to believe that his father would survive. If Elie admitted that his father was dying, then he had to deal with it, and that would hurt. By ignoring it, somewhat, he was able to achieve a little peace. ASSIGN WORKSHEET 2 Concept 7: Supporting Your Examples Ignorance is used by many people to protect be universal

themselvesNeeds from theto horrors of the real world. Example 1: Example 4: Example 2: Example 3: Sometimes ignorance is bliss. Example 1: Elies family/community ignored the story told by Moche of the atrocities inflicted by the German forces. Moche had changed. There was no longer any joy in his .. eyes. He no longer sang. He{[or]

no .longer talked to me of God . . . only of what he had seen. People or the cabbala, but refused not only to believe his stories, but even to listen to them. Hes just trying to make us pity him. What an imagination he has! they said. Or even: Poor fellow. Hes gone mad.. . . I didnt believe him myself. (Wiesel 4-5). Edit it even more! Sometimes ignorance is bliss. Example 2: Elies family didnt pay much attention to the atrocities of war being reported on the radio. Instead, they focused on the courtesy of the Germans in their community and felt very comfortable.

The Budapest radio announced that the Fascist party had come into power. Horthy [leader of of Hungary] Hungary] had been forced to ask one of the leader of the Nyilas party to form a new government. Still this was not enough to worry us....... Berovitz . . . Returned from the capital, . . .The Jews in Budapest are living in an atmosphere of fear and terror. The news spread like wildfire through Sighet. . .. .. . (Wiesel 6-7) But not for long. Optimism soon revived.(Wiesel 6-7) Sometimes ignorance is bliss. While Elie and his father were in Buna, Elies father wanted to believe that a kapo would actually hold up his end of

their deal. He needed to believe this because it was the only way he could feel deal with having his son blackmailed. Franek, the foreman, one day noticed the gold-crowned tooth in my mouth. Give me your crown, kid. I told him it was impossible, that I could not eat without it. I found another answer; the crown had been put down on a list after the medical inspection. This could bring trouble on us both. If you dont give me your crown, youll pay for it even more. This sympathetic, intelligent youth was suddenly no longer the same person. His eyes gleamed with desire. I told him I had to ask my fathers advice. When I spoke to my father about it, he turned pale, was silent and long while, and then said: No, son, you mustnt do it. Hell take it out on us!

He wont dare. But alas Frank knew where to touch me; he knew my weak point. My father had never done military service, and he never succeeded in marching in step. Here, every time we moved from one place to another in a body, we marched in strict rhythm. This was Franeks chance to torment my father, and to thrash him savagely every day. . . . I decided to give my father lessons, to teach him to change step, and to keep to the rhythm. We began to do exercises in front of our block. . . . But my fathers progress was still inadequate, . . . We could not stand any more. We had to give in. When the day came, Franek burst into wild laughter. I knew it, I knew quite well I would win. . . . That same evening in the lavatory, the dentist from Warsaw pull out my crowned tooth, with the aid of a rusty spoon. . . . A fortnight later, all the Poles were transferred to another camp. I had lost my tooth for nothing. (52-4) No, son, you mustnt do it. Hell take it out on us! He wont dare. But alas Frank . . . knew my weak point. My father had never done military

service . . . This was Franeks chance to torment my father . . . . We began to do exercises in front of our block. . . . But my fathers progress was still inadequate, . . . We could not stand any more. We had to give in. . . . Franek burst into wild laughter. I knew it, I knew quite well I would win. . . . That same evening in the lavatory, the dentist . . . pull out my crowned tooth, with . . . a rusty spoon. . . . A fortnight later, all the Poles were transferred to another camp. I had lost my tooth for nothing. (Wiesel 52-4). Sometimes, ignorance is bliss. Example 4: Elie wanted to believe that his father would survive. If Elie admitted that his father was dying, then he had to deal with it, and that would hurt. By ignoring it, somewhat, he was able to achieve a little peace. Sometimes, ignorance is bliss.

Example 5: Even after they were deported, Elies family/community ignored the truth about the concentration camps; instead focusing on which units were good ones.

In Elie Wiesels novel Night, ignorance was used to defer the unbearable realities of war. I. Early in chapter one, Elies family didnt pay much attention to the atrocities of war being reported on the radio. Instead, they only paid attention to the nice Germans in their community. A. The London radio, which we listened to every evening, gave us heartening news: the daily bombardment of Germany, Stalingrad; preparation for the second front. And we, the Jews of Sighet, were waiting for better days, which would not be long in coming. . . . People said: The Russian armys making gigantic strides forward . . Hitler wont be able to do us any harm, even if he wants to. B. Wiesel pages 5-6 C. The Budapest radio announced that the Fascist party had come into power. Horthy [leader of Hungary] had been forced to ask one of the leader of the Nyilas party to form a

new government. Still this was not enough to worry us. . . . Berovitz . . . returned from the capital, . . . The Jews in Budapest are living in an atmosphere of fear and terror. The news spread like wildfire through Sighet. . . . But not for long. Optimism soon revived. D. Wiesel pages 7-8 E. In these scenes, the people of Sighet chose to remain ignorant so they didnt have to deal with what was really happening and what was coming their way. F. The people of Sighet not only ignored the radio broadcast, they ignored the facts in front of their faces. In Elie Wiesels novel Night, ignorance was used to defer the unbearable realities of war. II. Also very early in the novel, Elies family and community ignored the story told by

Moche of the atrocities inflicted by the German forces. A. Moche had changed. There was no longer any joy in his eyes. He no longer sang. He no longer talked to me of God or the cabbala, but only of what he had seen. People refused not only to believe his stories, but even to listen to them. Hes just trying to make us pity him. What an imagination he has! they said. Or even: Poor fellow. Hes gone mad.. . . I didnt believe him myself. B. Wiesel pages 4-5 C. In this scene, the friends of Moche seemed almost afraid to believe him because that would mean that they would have to do something, anything, and it was so much easier for them to go on with life and pretend that the horrors would not come to their town. D. The people of Sighet tried to ignore the realities of war for as long as they possibly could, yet when they did awaken, it was too late. They were already imprisoned in a

concentration; however, they did not stop being ignorant. So, they focused on which of the concentration camps were the best and which units within their camp was best. In Elie Wiesels novel Night, ignorance was used to defer the unbearable realities of war. III. Even after they were deported, Elies family and community ignored the truth about the concentration camps, instead focusing on which units were good ones. A. That evening, the labor units came back from the work yards. Roll call. We began to look for familiar faces, to seek information, to question the veteran prisoners about which labor unit was the best, which block one should try to get into. The prisoners all agreed saying, Bunas a very good camp. You can stand it. The important thing is not to get transferred to the building unit. . . . We followed our kapo, . . . This was the orchestra block. . . . Youre

lucky, son, smiled Hans. Youve landed in a good unit. . . B. Wiesel page 47 C. In this scene, the prisoners remained optimistic about their futures, and they saw that there were ways to survive even if that meant ignoring the realities of war and searching for that way to survive. D. The people of Sighet tried to ignore the realities of war for as long as they possibly could, yet when they did awaken, it was too late. They were already imprisoned in a concentration; however, they did not stop being ignorant. So, they focused on which of the concentration camps were the best and which units within their camp was best. Journal 11: Chapter 9 Explain In Elie Wiesels novel Night, ignorance was used to defer the unbearable realities of war.

IV. Elie chose to ignore his father as he was being beaten, so he didnt have to deal with the pain of seeing his father broken. A. My father was suddenly seized with colic. He got up and went toward the gypsy, asking politely, in German: Excuse me, can you tell me where the lavatories are? The gypsy looked him up and down slowly, from head to foot. As if he wanted to convince himself that this man addressing him was really a creature of flesh and bone, a living being with a body and a belly. Then, as if he had suddenly woken up from a heavy doze, he dealt my father such a clout that he fell to the ground, crawling back to his place on all fours. I did not move. What had happened to me? My father had just been struck, before my very eyes, and I had not flickered an eyelid. I looked on and said nothing. That evening, landed in a good unit. . .

B. Wiesel page 33 C. In this scene, Elie deliberately chooses to ignore the fact that his father has been beaten in order to handle the situation. I think he is in denial in order to protect himself from anger that would only cause more problems especially in a concentration camp. D. In many situations, the prisoners of the concentration camps used ignorance to protect themselves from the harsh realities of war.
