PowerPoint presentation can be used in the classroom to introduce Night
by Elie Wiesel. Students will learn about the experience of Hungarian Jews at the end of the war, as well as specific background information about
Elie Wiesel. The presentation points out the unfortunate experience of the Hungarians, and illustrates
how the war was fought against the Jews at the expense of losing the
conflict against the Allies. When giving the presentation, the teacher can define
and make clear to students the differences between the roles of perpetrator, bystander, victim and
rescuer. This presentation was given at the Arkansas Holocaust Conference on Friday, November 14, 2003.
The conference theme was "The Holocaust Remembered: Moral
Bankruptcy" and also included addresses by Severin Hochberg, a historian at the United States Holocaust Memorial
Museum and by Dr. Henry Friedlander, noted scholar, author and educator.
