This synopsis report prepared by Joel
This autobiographical novel tells the story of Eliezer, a teenage Jewish boy from the small Transylvanian village of Sighet. He is 17 when transported to Auschwitz, Buna, and finally Buchenwald with his father. Eliezer loses his faith, argues with God, and is sustained only by the need to care for his father. Instead of God, he is rescued by an American tank. The story is a sort of Exodus in reverse, with humiliation and death as its destination, not liberation and triumph. _Night_ was the first part of a trilogy that included _Dawn_ and _The Accident_, and for these and his other Holocaust studies Wiesel won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1986.
