During his younger years, he studied the traditional Jewish texts. During the war, he and his family were captured by the Germans and taken to a concentration camp, Auschwitz. His family was murdered in the Holocaust. Elie was a survivor, and after that, he left to France. In France, he studied philosophy, psychology, and literature and later became a journalist. He was so reluctant about sharing his experiences of the Holocaust. He, however, was convinced by a Catholic writer to express his traumatic memories (Horn, Pierre L. et al. 47). He writes the book, Night, to dispose of his emotional turmoil during the Holocaust. He later relocated to the United States and continued with his career. His life experiences made him become a humanitarian and a political activist. His expression on the “global crisis of humanity” made him a Nobel Peace Prize winner in 1986.
