There was truly no reason for Elie to add this to the book; however, he does it on the grounds that it makes even more emotional association with both the reader having an enduring and traumatizing experience most like Elie must have had while listening to him play the violin (Miller, 2014).
All through the entire story it is evident that Elie stresses on the power of apprehension and how the Nazi’s had utilized it for their advantage. By having this be an individual piece, one can truly associate with the reader and know precisely what he had felt when he was there. This book is viable for a few reasons. First and foremost, it demonstrates precisely how the author had felt at the same time. Secondly, by utilizing an individual record rather than basic statistics he not only talks about his story, but also about other people’s stories. Lastly, he makes a passionate bond with the reader by indicating what he saw or said as well as what he felt and thought at the time (Miller, 2014). He portrays the grisly butcher of individuals in ways never knew about, and that is the reason why I think Night is so compelling and traumatizing.
