Elie Wiesel's memoir NIGHT happens at such a difficult, complex time in history. Before reading the memoir, students need a background into what was happening in the world, so they can more fully grasp the events around the life of Elie Wiesel and his family.

Our unit was created and based off the 2006 translation by Marion Wiesel. This PowerPoint introduction can be used with any translation of Night by Elie Wiesel.
This 27-slide NIGHT PowerPoint covers the following topics:
* Who was in World War II

* Why did World War II happen?
* What happened in World War II (a fantastic 39-event timeline that starts at the end of WWI and ends with Elie Wiesel visiting Jerusalem for the first time)

These notes are an awesome introduction to the memoir NIGHT by Elie Wiesel.
