Could you argue that 'Night' is the story of Eliezer's loss of innocence? In what ways does he lose his innocence? Can we also argue that innocence is impossible after the Holocaust. Is this true?

please help me

Elie grew up immersed in his faith. After being in the camps Elie considered his faith a time of innocence that has been lost. Elie sums his feelings up at the end of the novel,

"Never shall I forget those moments which murdered my God and my soul and turned my dreams to dust. Never shall I forget these things, even if I am condemned to live as long as God Himself."
