    (Night) The people of Sighet believed that the Fascists would not come to their town.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The people of Sighet believed that the Fascists would not come to their town. This implies that they were not prepared for any potential threat or invasion from the Fascists. Their belief could have been based on a sense of security, trust in their leaders, or simply a lack of awareness of the political situation. However, this belief turned out to be false as the Fascists did eventually come to their town, causing a significant disruption to their lives.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    During the time when the Jews were relocated to ghettos, Elie's family made the decision to remain in their own home instead of moving to the designated areas. This implies that the statement "When the Jews were moved to the ghettos, Elie's family stayed in their home" is true.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Elie and his father lied about their ages during the "selection" at night. This suggests that they were trying to appear older in order to increase their chances of being selected to work instead of being sent to the gas chambers. Lying about their ages demonstrates the desperate measures they were willing to take in order to survive the horrors of the Holocaust.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    (Night) The cruel Sonder-Kommando guarded the prisoners so they wouldn’t escape.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The given statement suggests that the cruel Sonder-Kommando guarded the prisoners at night to prevent them from escaping. However, this is not true. The Sonder-Kommando were actually Jewish prisoners who were forced to work in the Nazi death camps. They were responsible for disposing of the bodies of those who were killed in the gas chambers. They did not guard the prisoners to prevent escape, but rather were victims themselves, forced to participate in the atrocities of the Holocaust. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement says that none of those in charge of the prisoners ever spoke a kind word to them. This means that at least one person in charge of the prisoners did speak a kind word to them. Therefore, the statement is false.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Elie couldn't communicate with the French girl because he didn't know how to speak French. This suggests that Elie's lack of knowledge in the French language hindered his ability to communicate with the girl effectively.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The given statement is "The pipel was shot in front of everyone by the firing squad." This statement is false because the word "pipel" does not make sense in this context. It is likely a typo or a misspelling of the word "people." Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Elie was afraid to sleep in the shed because he believed that if he slept there, he would not wake up and would die. This fear could be attributed to the harsh conditions of the concentration camp he was in, where death was a constant threat. The fear of dying in his sleep in such a place would be understandable given the circumstances.

      Education

    • C.

      Religion

    • D.

      Community service

    Correct Answer
    C. Religion
    Explanation
    In the book "Night," Elie's faith and religion played a significant role in his life as a young man. He grew up in a religious Jewish family and was deeply committed to his faith. His religion provided him with a sense of identity, purpose, and guidance. However, throughout his experiences in the Holocaust, Elie's faith was tested and he questioned the existence of a benevolent God. Despite this, religion remained a central aspect of his life and influenced his thoughts, actions, and relationships.

    • C.

      Shaved, showered, disinfected, and given clean clothes

    • D.

      Put through their first "selection"

    Correct Answer
    B. Forced to move into the ghettos

This highlights the extreme cruelty and inhumanity of the situation Elie and the other prisoners were facing during the night.

He was tortured first, which is a cruel and inhumane act. Additionally, he had done nothing wrong, making his death unjust. Furthermore, he did not die right away, which means he experienced prolonged suffering. All these factors combined make the death of the pipel particularly horrifying.

      Nearly escaped

    • D.

      Was glad to be free of him

This can be seen through his strong bond with his fellow prisoners and his willingness to support and protect them.

This suggests that she is able to hide her true identity and blend in with the Aryan population, which is a dangerous strategy during the Holocaust. This highlights the theme of identity and the lengths that individuals went to in order to survive during this dark period in history.

    A. SS
    Explanation
    The SS (Schutzstaffel) was a paramilitary organization under Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party. They were responsible for overseeing the concentration camps and enforcing the brutal policies of the Nazi regime. As such, they would have been the ones responsible for guarding the inmates at the camps. The other options listed, such as Sonder-Kommando (special units of Jewish prisoners forced to assist in the extermination process), the pipel (young male prisoners chosen as assistants to the Kapos), and Dr. Mengele (a notorious SS doctor who conducted cruel medical experiments on prisoners), were all involved in the operations of the camps but would not have been responsible for guarding the inmates.
