¾ The look in his eyes, as they stared into mine, has never left me.

Eliezer Wiesel is free at last, but freedom does not seem joyous at all, because back at the empty concentration camp in Auschwitz, where Hitler and his nefarious Nazi have murdered countless innocent lives, his tortured soul is dead and trapped inside the electric bars forever. During the days he spends in the hell on earth, what he witnesses and experiences has paralyzed him and put him to a state of apathy, he is unable to feel pain or joy. To be alive is the only thing that still makes sense, the animal instinct. He looks into the mirror, yet he no longer recognizes himself, he sees nothing but an skeletal, strange man staring back at him. (Pg.109) That is a man without faith, a man who no longer praise God or believes in him, a man who accuses God, whom his life has been tied for so long, (Pg.65)

a man who has been transformed into a living corpse, separated from his dead soul, all that left inside the skin were death, horror and the indelible memory. As Elie says, they never think of revenge, and there is no use for revenge, because no one can ever undo Hitler's crime.
