During this dark time, Jews are forced to work at harsh concentration camps and his chance of surviving the camps is very small. Elie Wiesel lives to tell his horrifying experiences during this time, meanwhile his faith, mankind, and his responsibility to his father struggles to thrive.

These events inspire Elie to not give up hope. Unfortunately, his father dies near the end of the text. It is the only thing that touches Elie’s heart. "After my father's death, nothing could touch me anymore." (page 107).
Futhermore, Elie faces many external conflicts. Hunger, thirst, physical pain, sickness are all major concerns for him. Healthy Jews are kept alive to work. Consequently, Elie Wiesel has to work in the harsh camps. Wiesel suffers through many awful beatings. Small rations of bread and soup are offered to the suffering Jews. Tiny rations of food does not satisfy starving Jews. Thus, the Jews become weaker and thinner as time goes on. Elie’s father and he are forced to work at the harsh camps. All of the prisoners are so weak and thin. It is an unimaginable sight. Cold weather and treacherous blizzards during the long marches is a huge obstacle he faces. On the winter march, the prisoners who cannot keep up are either shot by the SS officers or trampled upon by the others. All Elie can think of is his painful foot: "Death wrapped itself around me till I was stifled. It stuck to me. I felt I could touch it." (page 82). 
WWII has such a huge affect on his life. Young Elie Wiesel faces many problems both physically and mentally. Powering through physical pain and keeping his faith helps him survive the Holocaust. A lot of rough times are along Elie, he becomes emotionally dead. "From the depths of the mirror, a corpse gazed back at me. The look in his eyes, as they stared into mine, has never left me." (page 109). Despite the loss of his father, Elie Wiesel manages to break through and survive this living hell known as the Holocaust.
