About me- for the project

Hello! My name is Shir Wurman. I live in Netanya, Israel. I like animals, meet with my friends and listen to my favorite band "Simple Plan" who were in Israel a few days ago! I have A big sister who bags me all the time but I enjoy to be with here. I started to read the book "Night" and it is really fascinating to read. I'm very interested in knowing more about the Holocaust. I hope to hear from you soon! Shir :)

reply to shelby - 14.12.08

Hi! I already have been in the Simple plan concerts and it was really fun! The funny thing is, that when I saw your letter I was listening to "The Fray"!! I love them and I hope you will enjoy the concert.

We don't have snow in Israel except for one mountain in the north. Skiing sounds cool and I wish I could do it some time on a trip.

In Italy I was in Rome, Verona and I think in Pisa, too. It is a beautiful country. I liked Argentina but it's cold there. They had a lot of anti-Semitic gatherings in the streets. That was really scary.

My dad's aunt is in Costa Rica. I've heard it is beautiful there. Tell me more about this school trip. did you enjoy it? What about your hobbies and your family?

I hope to hear from you soon! Shir :)

Belief, Indifference, or Denial- reply

Hi! I started to read the book last week. It is really interesting and fascinating . Maybe it's funny, but I got angry when the the Jews in Sighet did not believe him. But it was not their fault because it was really a horrible thing. It is hard to believe that it happened to people if you were not there. Did you read about the woman that was shouting: "fire"? what do you think about her?


HI! How are you? I hope you had a good holiday. I don't know what people know about the situation in Israel, but it is really hard. Actually, the Hamas from Gaza is shooting missiles at us right now . It's lucky that the missiles are reaching only the south, but it's still our country and a lot of soldiers are injured. There is a town in the south who called "Beer sheva" and I have a family there and they are continuously getting bombed . I am really worried about them and I hope they will be O.K!

Students in the south of Israel are not going to school, and they staying at the shelters all day. Yesterday, our army went into Gaza and until now we have 20 injured soldiers. I hope this information will help you know more about my country. I am waiting to hear from you...Bye...

To Shelby- 6.1.09

Yes, the situation here is really scary.

I am sure that the news there is different from here, and it is very important that people know what is really going on.

Thank you for your interest, and I will be happy to tell you more things.

My vacation was fun but sometimes boring. I am happy that you enjoyed your Christmas break.

The pictures are very beautiful and I hope that I will see this view for real and not just in the pictures.

I am waiting to hear from you soon! Shir  :)

Silence- 25.1.09

I think that Elie and all the people were silent because it is hard to talk about hard experiences after and douring the holocaust.

To me it's hard just to hear those things and think about them, because 6 million Jews were murdered and sometimes I can't believe that it really happened.

Sometimes silence is good because it helps people to overcome their negative experiences they want to forget. But sometimes silence is bad because people need to talk about what happened. Especially about the Holocaust.

What do you think about silence?

Indifference or Helplessness- 27.1.09

I think that Elie wasn't dispassionate. He had nothing to do. If he had said something to the KAPO, he would probably have been beaten too. It doesn't mean that he's not a loving son anymore. Another possibility is that Elie was in shock when his father was beaten by the Kapo and couldn't do anithing.

You think that Elie did the right thing?

Where is god?- 27.1.09

Hi! In my opinion, this scene is complicated. The way of thinking depends on people's belief in god. Elie was a believer, therefore for him god is everywhere. But there are some people who can't think about god after those bad things happened to them. It depends also on the situation. I don't know how I would answer the question of “Where is God”, especially in the midst of experiencing evil.

What do you think about it?

Excellent! --Nellie Deutsch 13:31, 4 February 2009 (UTC)

Final Thoughts

I enjoyed reading the book and it was nice to share my thoughts and my feelings with you. The book was great and it was nice to know what you think about the book and the Holocaust. You helped me to see different points of view. I'm glad that we had that.

Excellent! --Nellie Deutsch 13:30, 4 February 2009 (UTC)
