5 truths of human nature

(Found in Night by Elie Wiesel)

The girl's poise and facial expression shows that she is praying during a rough time, but her open eyes which usually are a sign of disbelief could mean that her faith in God is dying.
The lost angel with the cross on the floor to me represents how even the most righteous people can question their faith from time and time or even lose it.
The person's face going from normal to pig like reminded me of how over time being in terrible condition can chip at people's humanity until they seem unrecognizable.
While most people who serve in war willing go they still are effected by dehumanization like the Jews were in Night. After living in such harsh conditions some people come out of the military with more of a cold heart.
The nurses helping the patients that practically are skeletons which reminded me of when the doctor told Elie he would be out the hospital soon which gave him the hope to believe that he would not die.
The young man carrying the older one is like how Elie and his father helped each other to keep walking no matter what. The care the younger man in the painting shows could of been the difference between the older man making it or not.
Even when tied up the people in the painting see a dove which is a sign of hope much like some of the prisoner's in Auschwitz did. While everything seemed to be going wrong they looked for hope where ever available.
The person in the painting is clinging onto the cross which to me is a visual representation of what Akiba did when he was explaining to everyone else that God was just testing them.
The beach inside the regular apartment is much like how some of the Jews saw the ghettos as their own paradise in order to try to make the best of a pretty bad situation.
The lady with the sign blind hanging on her neck reminds me of the Jews who were practically blind from the truth, because they refused to believe it
