How does Wiesel's use of imagery help establish the tone and purpose of Night?

If an example or two of imagery in the book can be provided for me to branch of off that would be much appreciated.

Weisel's tone is somber, serious and honest. The imagery he uses isn't meant to shock; his intention is to make very clear what his life and the other lives around him looked like. The camps were ugly; we can see that officer smash his father's head, and we can feel Elie's guilt as he rolls over to leave his father to die alone. Go back to the beginning and imagine Madame S's screams in the train car. Can you hear her?
