Just read Night. Very easy read, well written. It took me less than 3 hours to finish. Night is an excellent book. And I find it funny how you promise to stop procrastinating at the end of the week....isn't that procrastinating??

he was a jew from poland (i think from poland) and his family was driven apart by nazis in concentration camps. I'd bet you could find info easily by searching the internet.

synopsis of Night:

He's on the road to becoming a Jewish scholar, hears rumors of Jews being taken away, ignores them, gets taken to a concentration camp with his dad (rest of his family dies), has adventures, loses his faith, goes on a death march, little kid plays greatest violin concert ever, dad dies, book ends.

you probably could've read the book in the time that it took you to read that paragraph, though.

He saw his mother and sister get sent off to a furnace.

He tried to stay with his father as long as possible in the concentration camp and saw him slowly deteriorate away. It's been over four years since I read the book, so correct me if I'm wrong please, but I think his father died as they were forced to run in the snow, and his father didn't have the strength to run anymore and collapsed.

You could research all that info and have it down in half an hour, then throw it into an essay in half an hour. That is an hours worth of work. I sound like this kids mother.

i think that was one of Elie's friend. he stopped b/c he had a stomache problem. I always thought he had to drop a load .
Anyways, Elie's dad was dying and Elie went to get him some food and by the time he got back, someone else was in his father's place. And he just accepted that his father was sent to the furnace. He knew he wasn't going to survive. Sad thing is that they only had a few more days untill they were free

^ Ah. It was a great book; I gotta read it again. It only takes a couple of hours to finish.
