Making a Conscience

I had a really interesting experience reading "Night". I kind of knew what to expect but I still was affected by the graphic nature of his novel. Not that I haven't read or seen worse stuff, just that this time I had to analyze it. I decided to read the book with the intent to show the moral implications of his writing. At about halfway through the book I was feeling very confused.

How did his writing make me feel? What kind of moral concepts was I being asked to accept? What was he saying about human nature?

I still haven't completely decided how I feel about these questions but I'm afraid that I might come up with answers against the norm.
