The tourists put their illusions aside when they stepped off the train in Auschwitz, according to Elie Wiesel, the author of Night. Before leaving for anywhere, they had to leave behind everything they owned. According to the author, the items they had to give up were left behind, along with their illusions.
The events that the author’s family experienced during the Second World War are recreated in Elie Wiesel’s book Night. His entire family initially managed to stay alive without being sent to the detention camps. Unfortunately, the Wiesels were forced to abandon their home and board a train with an unknown destination during the final German raid. The travelers did not initially try to predict their route’s direction. But everyone understood what was going on.
