Perhaps some of the most vivid images of the Holocaust are the
death marches, when tens of thousands of Jews at one time were paraded

that occurred following ghettoization related in Elie Wiesel's Night.

hundreds of thousands of Jews into the death camps and the mass
extermination of most. The few survivors, though careful in their
perspective, often demonstrate the complexities related to a retelling
of the Holocaust story.
