Approximately two months later, all Jews were transferred to the Auschwitz concentration camp, where the vast majority of them were slain within hours of arriving. Wiesel and his father were the only members of the family who were rescued since they were physically capable of working. In the concentration camp, the knowledge that his father was still alive was the only thing that helped him to stay alive and survive. Unfortunately, his father was brutally beaten just before the camp was released, and Elie could not save him.

The novel that made him famous, Night, covers all he experienced while imprisoned in a Nazi concentration camp and after that. The themes that recur in Elie Wiesel’s books include how each human value was destroyed in the terrible circumstances of the camp, the humiliation he felt for resenting his father while he was in a vulnerable situation, the disdain he feels for humanity, and the “death of God.”

After surviving Auschwitz, Elie Wiesel was given the Nobel Peace Prize in 1986 to spread a message of tolerance and respect for human dignity. New York Human Rights Foundation was founded by him as well. On July 2, 2016, he passed away. In the same way that his work has had a profound effect on people’s lives, his quotations have had a profound effect on people’s lives.
