Chapter 1 - Week 1 (Moishe the Beadle)

Respond to the following prompt in a small group post. Then comment as individuals about the posted group responses.

At the beginning of the book, Wiesel tells the story of Moishe the Beadle. Why do you think none of the people in the village, including Wiesel, believed Moishe when he returned? How do you think things would have been different if they did believe Moishe the Beadle?

Some things to consider: Historical Context, Previous Experience, Life Station, Unbelievability of Moishe's stories (babies, guns, etc.)
