Author: Elie Wiesel
Subject: World War II, the Holocaust
Setting: Transylvania, Germany
In this memoir by Nobel laureate Elie Wiesel, a studious, deeply religious boy is overwhelmed with remorse at having survived the unimaginable evil and cruelty of the Holocaust that consumed his family. His memories of the concentration camps cause him to wonder how the God he once so fervently believed in could have permitted these terrible events to occur? This heartbreaking book has no ready answers.

SAMPLE BOOK PUNCH WRITING PROMPTS
In the novel, Moishe, a shy man, is taken away from Eliezer's town and is almost murdered. He returns to warn everyone about what awaits them at the hands of the Nazis. Although he pleads with the neighbors, no one believes Moishe's forewarning. Eventually, however, they find that he was telling the truth. Write a paragraph about a time you ignored a warning but learned later that this was a mistake.
As Eliezer bears the horrors of the Holocaust, he encounters others along the way. Some of these characters are positive influences on Eliezer while others are negative. Write a multi-paragraph essay that argues that many of the characters whom Eliezer interacts with in the concentration camps strengthen his desire to live. You must write a thesis statement that expresses this opinion, a body of two or three paragraphs to support your statement, and a concluding paragraph that sums up this point of view.
