Character Logs: Ongoing Assignment
It is clear that throughout the novel, Elie and his father both face extreme alterations in their mental, physical, and emotional state. The atrocities of the Holocaust changed who they were, and determined who they would become. The Holocaust is considerably the worst tragedy ever to occur in modern history, and we must mourn the victims whose identities became fragmented.
Your task is to create Character Logs that will analyze both Elie and Mr. Wiesel's evolution in character change throughout the novel. You will be completing two seperate Character Logs: One for Eile and one for Mr. Wiesel.
For Each Chapter 1. Write a Paragraph explaining the events from the section that effected the character. 2. Find at least 3 pieces of textual evidence that supports your paragraph with quotations marks and page numbers.
