Finish Discussion on “The Hangman”

Read the following quote by Edmund Burke: “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.”

WRITE in your Night Response Journal: What does “The Hangman” and the quote by Burke mean to you personally? How might you connect this to your own life? How might this quote be connected to “The Hangman”, and to Night? Write exploring these connections. Is there a common theme among the three? What is it? Explain. Include any other insights you find. Use complete sentences so you will know what you are responding to when you look back on it.
