Sammanfattning: The aim of this essay is to examine whether the traumatic experiences that Elie Wiesel depicts in his novel, Night, led the author or any other character he encounters to lose their faith. Considering that the author describes himself and other characters in the novel as believers, one wonders how it would be possible not to lose faith after experiencing the terror of the concentration camps. The reader understands that a crisis of faith occurs and loss of faith might ensue. The focus of the study is on the religious faith and how faith permeates the world depicted in Night, the characters and the imagery that we encounter in the book.
