Why do you think Elie Wiesel tells his story in the first person perspective?

If Night were written in the third person, would it be more or less believable?

Wiesel's use of the first person enables him to give a more personal view of the story as a whole. These are his experiences, they are not impartial..... this is his story. The first person is the best way for him to convey the things he needs to say, and the third person would have made the story more general..... not personal.
