The writer of this paper details the horrors of the Holocaust, and Auschwitz in particular, in Eli Wiesel's novel "Night." The writer also examines whether parts of Wiesel's writings are autobiographical, as it's clear the author struggled with his memories and tried to set apart some scenes he would write about whereas others remain locked in his own memory.
From the Paper:"Time and time again, the book brings us back to Wiesel's feelings and comments about God. He occasionally seems to give up on any hope for humanity. But, he retains his faith in his Jewish heritage. This, of course, happened to Elie the novel's narrator, and to Wiesel the actual writer and humanist today. In looking at the copyright date, 1960, it is obvious that Wiesel struggled with his memories and tried to set apart some scenes he would write about and others that would remain locked in his own memory. Still, he has no master plan in what he has decided to write about and just how intimately he is willing to share the Truth as he lived it, with the reader who can only imagine the awfulness of all those years."
