"Faster! Faster! Get on with you lazy swine!" (Wiesel 16)
"I awoke on Jan 29 at dawn. In my father's place lay another invalid." (Wiesel 97)
"From the depths of the mirror, a corpse gazed back at me." (Wiesel 99)
The Hungarian police burst into all of the Jewish houses. They took all the Jews and forced them onto train cars. They then had them shipped by train to Auschwitz. There, Elie and his dad were split up from his mom and sister. Luckily Elie and his dad were kept together through the camps until he died.
Elie's dad had been very sick. He had caught dysentery somehow and it was hard for him to get out of bed. He stayed in bed all day and Elie gave him extra bread and soup. But one night, he eventually passed away and the Kapos had to remove him from the bunks. When Elie woke up the next morning, there was somebody else in his dad's bed.
During Elie's time in concentration camps he had changed so much. He eventually strayed from his religion completely. He had also lost so much weight that he looked like a completely different person to himself. Concentration camps really change people, and i'm sure that once he noticed he looked like a corpse he started to gain more weight to look normal again.
