world tragedy before 1945: dinosaur extinction
half the world's species were made extinct
the t-rex was wiped out :(
it took place 65 million years ago so it was definitely before 1945
its kind of of like the holocaust because millions of living things died, though there wasn't any animosity behind it so it was different in that sense
they were both tragic events of large-scale destruction on life

Elie, in chapter 4 of Night, is starting to question his faith in his God. The biggest blow to his faith is following the hanging of the angelically beautiful child on the last page of the chapter.
When adults are hanged in the events of Night, Elie reacts with little emotion, as all of the men were prepared to die, and went out with an attitude of rebellion. When the child is hanged, he does nothing to rebel against his fate, though it is obvious he is not ready to die, and when the rope drops, he does not die immediately. Elie reacts strongly to this, weeping and questioning his faith.
Night deals extensively with violations of basic human rights, and portrays the Jewish people as being in a state resembling slavery. The UDHR also deals with these topics, although in a purely executive fashion, telling more about what not to do and what punishments are appropriate if forbidden things are done.
The UDHR is written from the point of view of international mediators with the presumed power to enforce the detailed policies worldwide, which is probably not the case in reality.
The colors of the child's tongue, red, compared to the color of the adults tongue, blue, contribute to the sad mood of the chapter by creating a contrast between the loss of a youth as opposed to the loss of adults.
The headings, numbered lists, and subheadings in the UDHR helps to simplify the text, most likely for public accessibility and most definitely to make the text easier to read.
