  2. 2. QUOTATION SANDWICH EXAMPLE There is a shift in the social status of Ebenezer and the people in the train from individuals who care about one another to animals that disregard the social contract. “Free from social constraint, young people gave way openly to instinct, taking advantage of the darkness to flirt in our midst, without caring about anyone else, as though they were alone in the world” (Wiesel, 1982, p. 21). Earlier on the same page, the denizens of the train took turns sitting down, but after days of thirst, hunger, and heat, they were reduced to their basic instincts for survival.
