Details include:

Night - Chapter 5
Losing Faith ~ Losing Strength ~ Surviving.

Rosh Hashanah - Losing Faith
Elie looses faith in God
He wonders why people would still pray to God on this, the eve of the Jewish New Year
People gather for a holy service
Elie lists reasons why he can barely believe in God anymore
Elie remembers how he used to ask for forgiveness of his sins
Now he believes he is the strong one, he is the one keeping himself alive
Elie’s father feels defeated, saddened

Yom Kippur
It was difficult to decide whether to fast on this holy day
If the prisoners did not eat their rations it could mean severe weakness and death
Elie eats his ration for two reasons
His Father tells him to
He is rebelling against God
To fast or not to fast?

Elie is transferred to the construction block, away from his Father
A German Jew was in charge
An SS examination would occur and then a selection
The work was very hard and there was a selection every week
The men had to undress and run as fast as they could to avoid selection
Elie ran as fast as he could and his number was not written down
The prisoners who had not passed were separated and some were weeping
Elie went to find his Father, he said he had passed as well

The Selection
The men whose numbers had been written down were told to stay at camp instead of working in the quarry
Elie’s Father had been selected, he did not know at the time
His Father says there will be another selection among them but he believes he will be sent to the crematoria
He gives Elie a knife and spoon
After a long day of work and worry Elie finds that his Father has passed the second selection

Akiba Drumer
“I can’t go on…It’s over…”
Elie and his Father tried to raise his spirts
“It’s over. God is no longer with us.”
Akiba tried to explain but he did not know how anyone cold believe during this time
Elie and his Father promised to say the Kaddish for him when he was selected in three days
Elie and his Father were beaten and work was extremely hard
They forgot to say the Kaddish for Akiba

Did not work on Christmas and New Years
It was very cold
Elie’s right foot swelled from the cold
He went to the hospital
There were sheets, better soup and bread
However, there were selections there as well

The Hospital
Elie had an operation on his foot
He was not put to sleep but he passed out
He had to rest for two weeks
Elie could not feel his foot, he thought they might have amputated it but he could not bare to ask
Rumors spread that the front was getting closer and all the Jews in the hospital would be exterminated
They were to evacuate and march through the snow
Elie was only concerned with staying with his Father
Two days after they left the sick were liberated by the Russians

The prisoners had to clean the camp before they left
“Let them (the liberating army) know that here lived men and not pigs”
56 blocks left before Elie and his Father
“It snowed on and on.”
Clean and March
