  • Soon after, as Elie and his father enter the camp, it seems to be alright and Elie's perspective changes quickly on the whole situation, he nows possesses hope. However he is still unknowing of what is to come.
  • "Confidence soared. Suddenly we felt free of the previous night's terror."
  • "We were withered trees in the heart of the desert."
  • Slowly, realizing that something good does not last forever, Elie now endures the painstaking life in a concentration camp. He feels the toll that it takes on his body is at the beginning of losing hope.
  • "I anxiously thought of my father, who was at work. But I was glad nevertheless to watch a factory go up in flames."
  • Clearly, Elie is being affected by the camp as he is glad that the factory is burning even with his father inside. At this point he is realizing that in the camp it is ever man for themselves without realizing it.
  • In this instance of the memoir, Elie is trying to stick with his father even if he holds him back. Unlike, Rabbi Eliahu's son, Elie has not decided to focus on himself just yet.
  • "I had made up my mind to accompany my father wherever he went."
  • Finally, on the day of his father's death Elie realizes the true effects that the camp has had on him. He feels sorrow yet he cannot display it. Although, his chances of survival increased as he was more focused on taking care of his father rather than himself. However, he is more focused on how much he truly loved his father even though the camp split them apart at times.
  • "I did not weep, and it pained me that I could not weep."
