Effect of the Holocaust on survivors
Elie Wiesel was among those fortunate enough to survive the horrors of the Holocaust. However, as he himself acknowledged, survival did not come without a cost. By examining the appalling conditions and constant tortures of the camps, as well as descriptions of survivors’ lives (both in physical and psychological terms) after liberation, write a five-paragraph essay about the effect of the Holocaust on survivors, and the causes of those effects. In other words: What were the costs of surviving the Holocaust? (Minimum 6 quotes from the various sources we’ve looked at.)

Works to consider:

Wiesel, Night
Levi, “On the Bottom”
Duras, “The War”
Rosenbaum, “Cattle Car Complex”
Winfrey, Auschwitz Death Camp
