Memory Mirror-Night

At the end of the book NIGHT, the last scene he finally sees himself in the mirror after years in the concentration camp. Elie Wiesel argues that no one can ever forget the terrible torture experienced at the camp. Looking at his reflection, his suffering shown through his bones, his sadness from his skin, and his weakened strength through his eyes are living proof that the nightmare was a reality. His reflection is a reminder that he survived the great struggle. From what he remembers what he looked like before the camp and life then was just a dream.
The line in the song REFLECTION from the movie MULAN-Why does my reflection show someone I don’t know?-sums up the whole emotion Elie Weisel felt when he looked in the mirror.
