Select one of the following topics for your essay:
Topic #1: Eliezer’s Struggle to Keep his Faith in God
Eliezer expresses sympathy for Job, the biblical figure who experienced horrendous loss and illness as Satan and God engaged in a debate over Job’s faithfulness. After watching the lynching and slow death of a young boy, Eliezer tells himself that God is hanging from the gallows as well. In his Nobel lecture, Wiesel describes the Holocaust as “a universe where God, betrayed by His creatures, covered His face in order not to see.”
Explain how Wiesel’s understanding of God changes throughout the book.
Topic #2: The Relationship between Eliezer and his Father
Explain how Eliezer’s relations with his father changes throughout the novel.
Topic #3: Eliezer’s Lost Childhood and the Image in the Mirror
What is the significance of the book’s final image of Eliezer’s face reflected in a mirror? He says that “a corpse gazed back” at him. What did he see? Explain. What aspects of him died during his ordeal? What aspects were born in their place?
Topic #4: Nazi Deception and the Demoralization and Dehumanization of Eliezer and his Fellow Prisoners
From deportation from Sighet to murder at Birkenau, deception was often used to confuse and demoralize the prisoners. Eliezer observes the now-infamous inscription above the entrance to Auschwitz, equating work with liberty. How does that inscription come to embody the deceit and bitter irony of the Nazi camps? What was the inscription? What was “work” of the prisoners? How does deception dehumanize? (Think about what all the lies do to the human spirit) CLICK HERE TO GET MORE ON THIS PAPER !!!
