"The Bad Things"
Wiesel probably couldnt't block out all that happened. The Holocaust was more than likely the biggest thing that happened in Elie's life. He was able to describe the happenings of the Holocaust in such detail because he remembered it vividly. The horrible things he saw and went through were unforgetable- no matter how much a person tried to forget them. Also, he may have wanted to write the book in such detail to really let the reader know how surviving the Holocaust was like. We think it is incredibly important for Holocaust survivors to share their stories. It is important for people to know what the Jews went through. The Holocaust is a very important event in history that people need to be educated about.
