Terms in this set (16)
What did the men do on the eve of Rosh Hashana?
The entire camp was agitated, and could feel the tension. No one touched their soup until after the prayer. Some 10,000 men had come to participate in a solemn service...
How did Elie feel while others were praying?
He felt furious, every fiber in him rebelling... "Why would I bless Him? Because he caused thousands of children to burn in his mass graves?" He though to himself, "Man is stronger, greater than God..."
What was Elie's inheritance from his father? Why'd his father give it to him?
His knife and spoon. He gave it to Elie because he thought he could use it, and because he knew Elie would have to leave soon, and he would remain alone.
What was Elie's final decision about fasting on Yom Kippur? Why'd he make that decision?
He decided not to fast: to please his father (who'd forbidden him to do so), and because he no longer accepted God's silence-his refusing to fast was his way of protesting against Him.
Did the men remember to say Kaddish for Akiba Drumer?
Following terrible days of more blow than food, and CRUSHING work... three days after Akiba left, they forgot to say the Kaddish.
What did Elie dream of when he dreamed of a better world?
He dreamed of a universe without a bell. (He hated the bell; it gave him orders which he executed blindly)
What happened to the patients who stayed in the hospital instead of evacuating?
They were liberated by the Russians (two days after the evacuation)
What was the last thing the head of the block ordered to do before the evacuation? Why?
The head of the block ordered "Try and sleep. Gather your strength for the journey ahead." This reminded Elie of his mothers recommendations in the ghetto.
What was the weather like during the evacuation?
The air was brisk-cold, snow falling from the sky and building up on the ground.
