How to Write a Summary of an Article? Mans Inhumanity Over the centuries, nothing has caused more pain and suffering for man than man himself. Through war, hate crimes, and random acts of violence, the fear of the different and unknown has made itself known in human nature. The holocaust was far more than a tragedy; it is something you simply cannot describe with words.
In the Akedah, God decides to test the faith of Abraham by asking him to sacrifice his only son, Isaac. Abraham does not doubt his God, and he ties Isaac to a sacrificial altar.
He raises a knife to kill the boy, but at the last minute God sends an angel to save Isaac. Unlike the God in Night, the God in the Akedah is not silent.
Night can be read as a reversal of the Akedah story: What had I to thank Him for? The moral of the Akedah is that God demands sacrifice but is ultimately compassionate.
There is also a second type of silence operating throughout Night: It is implied throughout the text that silence and passivity are what allowed the Holocaust to continue.

Yet, when the Nazis first appear, they do not seem monstrous in any way. Their attitude toward their hosts was distant, but polite. Wiesel highlights this incomprehensible tragedy by pulling the Nazis into focus first as human beings, and then, as the memoir shifts to the concentration camps, showing the brutal atrocities that they committed.
Furthermore, Night demonstrates that cruelty breeds cruelty. Instead of comforting each other in times of difficulty, the prisoners respond to their circumstances by turning against one another. Here, there are no fathers, no brothers, no friends.
Everyone lives and dies for himself alone. They enjoyed a relatively better though still horrendous quality of life in the camp, but they aided the Nazi mission and often behaved cruelly toward prisoners in their charge.Arguably Cattle Decapitation's best offering to date, Monolith of Inhumanity is a dynamic record, with many different elements working together to create one cohesive, disgusting and brilliant release.
