Forgive or not forgive?
How would you feel if you were in Elie’s position at the time of the Holocaust? Elie shouldn’t forgive them because after what they did to them and how they treated them was just horrible. When they were there at the camps they faced some of the hardest torture and death related kills that would end their lives. He would be feeling like he was just another person that was hoping not to be killed and living there day by day was the worst there was at the time. Everyday he could only hope that he would be going home instead of getting killed. The torture that he had gone through and killed him inside and he could never have that feeling that he had before when he had been taken there. If you were in Elie’s shoes what would you be feeling like or have to face when he did while he was there? Would you ever forgive someone who would do that kind of pain to you? He has the right now to forgive them for what he faced and I know if I was him I wouldn't forgive them just because what was going on there.
