‘NIGHT' by Elie Wiesel tells us his story of the time he spent in a Nazi death camp. It's a story of the dehumanization of the Jewish inmates at the hands of the Germans and the world who closed their eyes and minds to the reality of what was happening before them. The dehumanization according to Elie's experiences (pg. 8) started on the 7th day of Passover in 1944. The leaders of the Jewish community were arrested.

synagogue, to go out into the streets after six and then the ghettos, sounds like pieces of our own history with our African American citizens; doesn't it? It our job as this generation of citizens to watch with our eyes and hear with our ears and react with our hearts and souls so that no people of the world ever are dehumanized like those with the empty eyes and hearts that survived the death camps.
