My Language Arts class just recently covered a unit on World War II, during which we read a Holocaust memoir called Night, by Elie Wiesel. This sketch is my interpretation of a theme that was mentioned often in the book: the prisoners' struggle to not only stay alive but keep their beliefs and hope alive as well. The candle symbolizes this hope. The barbed wire and background represent the horrifying situation the prisoners were in, the many ways that they might encounter death, or perhaps lose their faith.
