Eliezer Wiesel

Shlomo (Eliezer's father)

Moshe the Beadle

Idek

He is the son of a very respected man in his Jewish community. Life is normal for him until he enters Auschwitz. Shlomo
(Eliezer's father)

Shlomo is a very respected member of his Jewish community and holds high authority before being sent off to the concentration camp. Throughout the ordeal, he remains loving and is only ever thinking of his son rather than himself. Shlomo
Continued He offers his son his food rations whenever he thinks he needs more to eat, and he is just a much more loving and concerned filled father than he was back in their community. At least, he shows it more. Unfortunately, the starvation and other horrid things that rack his body end up ensuring his demise after 8 months in the camp, and he is sent to his death at the crematorium. Moshe the Beadle Moshe the Beadle is a Jew that ends up being taken away much earlier than the rest of his community but ends up escaping. Moshe the Beadle
Continued He returns to his community to try and warn the other Jewish people, but it is to no avail. They all write off his warnings as that of a psychiatric patient and laugh at him. When everyone is actually taken away, they all regret not believing Moshe the Beadle. Idek Idek is the Kapo of the Buna camp. He faces the harsh conditions set by the Nazis just like the other prisoners, but he is just as cruel as the Nazis. Idek
Continued Idek is unable to control his fits of anger. Elie peers in on Idek with a girl at one point in the novel, and Idek is evil and punishes him in a way he seems just after he notices Elie. He beats both Elie and his father multiple times throughout the book. Plot Eliezer and many people in his community are shipped off to a concentration camp. He meets many other people while there, both nice and evil, and he stays close to his father until his father dies. Plot
Continued
You see all that happens in the camps Elie faces through his point of view and the horrors that were the Nazis. He ends up making it out of Auschwitz and goes on to write this book to tell the world about what all happened in concentration camps. The End Many end up dying with Elie being the main focused on survivor. No one is the same after leaving the concentration camps, but they have to move on with their lives anyways whether they wish to or not.
