gr82bdnyce, March 24, 2008

“Never shall I forget that night, the first night in camp, those moments which murdered my god and my soul and turned my dreams to dust. Never shall I forget the little faces of the children, whose bodies I saw turned into wreaths of smoke beneath a silent blue sky.” It’s wiesel’s first night in the camp and he has already lost hope. Death is surrounding him, he see’s children and babies being burned to death in pits of fire. This is the moment in his life when everything changes his dreams are deterred.
