In the book Night by Elie Wiesel, it tells you about a Jewish family going through the holocaust. They were sent to concentration camps all over. At these camps Jews were killed, starved and beaten. All of the Jews were very undernourished and were tortured. The Nazi's split most of the family and killed the so called "weak" people.The Jews could not revolt because of the Germans weapons. The Germans were not at all sympathetic. Luckely the boy and his father stuck together and made it out of the camps during the end of the war.
This book really shows how cruel the holocaust was. Jews were being killed for almost no reason. Nazi's killed about 6 million Jews during this time. The Jewish people were beaten and starved for years until the end of the war in 1945.
