Night Character Analysis: Madame Schachter

madame schächter

The camps took the prisoners' dignity and the light from their eyes. To this day, whenever I hear Beethoven played my eyes close and out of the dark rises the sad, pale face of my Polish friend, as he said farewell on his violin to an audience of dying men. They took it as a good thing but when they got there, but when they looked out the window they saw the chimneys and smelled the scent of burning human flesh and they have arrived to a concentration camp, How would you fell to be lied to and let down and when you arrive your miserable? Rushing farther ahead than Rabbi Eliahou can manage, the son soon distances himself from the weakening old man, whose stumbling steps threaten to get them both shot as stragglers.

who is madame schachter?

madame schächter

Why does Eliezer say he has heard that Stein's wife and children are fine? While you read you got to understand and kind of imagine how things broke down while entering the concentration camp. The next day when they arrived at the camp, she started up one final time, and this time the Jews could see the fire that she was talking about. This irritates and scares the people packed into the train car with her, and she is viewed as a nuisance. Nobody on the train was seen the fire and they were getting mad at her horrible screams. Traditionally, Orthodox Jews count sunset as the start of the new day - that is, every day night from sunset to sunset. Eliezer considers running into the electric fence in order to Question 3 options: a.

Who is Madame Schachter in the story Night by Elie Wiesel

What effect does Madame Schaechter's vision and screaming have on the other prisoners? The Hospitalized Hungarian Jew A ghastly patient wracked by dysentery and certain that he will not pass the next selection, he lies in the bed next to Elie's and believes that Hitler will keep his promise to annihilate all Jews before the war ends. They are told that they have arrived at a labor camp where they will be treated well and kept together as families. She managed to predictthe fate of many Jews even though some found her mad. In fact how all the jews had gotten tired of the womens madness and try to shut her up by abusing the poor diffenceless women not knowing what she is doing wrong and her son who dosent do anything at this point. Do you agree with her opinion? Based on what Elie has shown you from the concentration camps so far, do you think and would have said the same thing after she experienced camp life? After weeks of torture for stockpiling arms and blowing up Buna's power station, the man refuses to name co-conspirators and is transferred to Auschwitz and never seen again. Another reason I think they fail to believe Moshe is just the human nature to doubt someone unless you witness the events firsthand.

Madame Schächter’s son

In this scene they are even compared to animals because of their behavior. This suggests that the prisoners are so hungry that they are willing to fight until death just for a little crumb of bread. I mean i would also ask and cry for my family wondering what has happend to them , wouldnt you? On the third night, she begins to scream that she sees a fire in the darkness outside the car. In both cases none of them thought that either Madame nor Moishe was right when indeed they were. One would think it insane to imagine the extermination of six million Jews, yet it occurred, efficiently and methodically. The tempting sight that holds the attention of the prisoners during the air raid alert turns out to be two cauldrons of soup.

Night Section 2

madame schächter

One thing that left me shocked in section 2, was when they hung the little boy. After that, they had to take a shower that had a disinfecting stuff in the water that they showered in. The theme of Night would better be expressed as depressing, morbid theme. I, personally, cannot think of a time when I or someone else disregarded an obvious warning sign. On page 35, Elie gives thanks to God for mud. There's nothing you can do for him. How do they help explain why Eliezer and his father cling to one another in Auschwitz? His fellow inmates forget his parting request for a Kaddish.

They will even take away our name: and if we want to keep it, we will have to find ourselves the strength to do so, to manage so that behind the name some- thing of us, of us, as we were, remains. However, that wasn't enough, and she soon started screaming again. Their whole lives whether it was short or long was controlled by the leaders and officers in the camps. The Germans will judge which men are best suited for work and the others will join the weak. As for the girl…good luck with that, Stephen. She terrifies the other occupants of the train, and she is repeatedly beaten by young men trying to silence her.
