[SOLVED] Did Elie Wiesel Go To Buna?

Wiesel’s early life, spent in a small Hasidic community in the town of Sighet, was a rather hermetic existence of prayer and contemplation 😊 In 1940 Sighet was annexed by Hungary, and, though the Hungarians were allied with Nazi Germany, it was not until the Germans invaded in March 1944 that the town was brought into the Holocaust 😎 Within days, Jews were “defined” and their property confiscated 🙌 They were then ghettoized by April, and deportations to Auschwitz started on May 15. Wiesel and his three siblings, along with his parents and his two sisters, were sent to Auschwitz where Wiesel’s mother and sister were murdered. Both he and his father were taken to Buna-Monowitz for the Auschwitz slave labor unit. He and his father were taken to Buchenwald as part of a march that ended in death. Wiesel was released from Buchenwald on April 28th, 1945. [1]

Encyclopaedia.ushmm.org also describes how never shall I’m forgetting that night, the first night in camp, that turned my life into one long night seven times sealed.Never shall I’m forgetting that smoke.Never shall I’m forgetting the small faces of the children whose bodies I sawseen transformed into smoke under a silent sky.Never shall I’m forgetting those flames that consumed my faith forever.Never shall I’m forgetting the nocturnal silence that deprived me for all eternity of the desire to live.Never shall I’m forgetting those moments that murdered my God and my soul and turned my dreams to ashes.Never shall I’m forgetting those things, even were I condemned to live as long as God Himself.—Excerpt from Night by Elie Wiesel1 [3]
Biography.com He then describes how, in 1940 Hungary annexed Sighet. Wiesels were part of those Jewish families who had to move into ghettoes. Nazi Germany forced Jews in Sighet, along with Hungary, to deport them to Auschwitz-Birkenau in Nazi-occupied Poland in May 1944. Wiesel was 15 years old when he and his whole family were taken to Auschwitz in the Holocaust. This event claimed more than six million lives. Wiesel and his father were sent to Buna Werke, an Auschwitz III–Monowitz sub-camp, where they have were made to work in deplorable and inhumane conditions. The two were then transferred to Nazi camps, and forced to march to Buchenwald. Their father was killed by a German soldier just three months after the camp’s liberation. Wiesel’s mother and younger sister Tzipora also died in the Holocaust. Elie was exiled to Buchenwald by the Allies in 1945. Only he, his younger sisters Beatrice and Hilda and their parents survived.
