In the novel Night, Elie makes it clear that not everyone in Sighet is being evacuated; only the Jews. What exactly were the rest of the community members doing? Did they not see what was happening right in front of their eyes? Could they not stand up for their own community members? What was wrong with them? Explain what you believe made the non-Jewish community members remain silent as their fellow citizens were marched from one end of the town to the next, and eventually out of town.
Now, imagine if those community members had cell phones with texting capabilities. Do you believe that the community members would have responded in the same way? Why or why not?
