  • Shlomo is the father of our author, Eliezer. In this story, Shlomo stays close to Eliezer as much as possible. They never lose track of each other. Shlomo slowly grows weary and weak. He finally dies from dysentary,
  • Mrs. Schachter
  • Yossi and Tibi are Czech, Zionists brothers. Once their parents are killed in Birkenau, they began work in the electrical warehouse. At this time, they become friends of Elie. Elie would catch Yossi and Tibi humming Jewish melodies. The brothers said their dream was to immigrate to Palestine.
  • Idek
  • Rabbi Eliahu is a rabbi in the Polish community. This man was respected for staying so true to his religion, and keeping in kind spirits. Through his time in concentration camps, Eliezer prays to God that he will not turn to be like Eliahu's son for his son abandons him because he is old and growing weak.
  • Mrs. Schachter is another respected, religious figure. One night, she is separated from her husband, and packed into a cattle car. Inside this cattle car, she is frantic about fire and burning. Schachter tries to explain to the Jews that there is fire and burning in the near future. This actually foreshadows the gas burning. The Jews do not believe her, and since she's gone crazy, they just beat her.
  • Idek is in charge of Eliezer's work at Buna. Idek is known for his crazy, violent outbreaks. One outbreak occurs on Eliezer, and later on Eliezer's father. Eliezer catches Idek having sexual relations with a Polish woman, and chuckles. This causes Idek to have Eliezer put on his belly of a box, and whips him twenty five times.
