Night quote 4

(92) But death hardly needed their help. The cold was conscientiously doing its work. At every step, somebody fell down and ceased to suffer.

The first line is saying that a lot of people are trying to kill themselves because they feel like there is no god so that means there is no purpose to be alive. They feel that they have wasted their time praising god. Other people were blaming the cold for taking so many people. Everyone was freezing to death since it was so cold. Since it was so cold everyone would stop and try to get warm but, stopping meant they would get shot so with every step someone got shot because another person stopped to get warm or take a break. This is sad because these people hardly had any clothes and all those nazis had on more layers including their uniform. This is another sign of dehumanizing Jews.
