In chapter 6 of "Night", how did Elie help his father when the selection was made?
1 Answer | Add Yours
In Chapter 6, after Elie first saves his father by staying by his side and pushing him on as they were forced to run nonstop from their camp in Buna to the new Gleiwitz Camp, he again saves his father when the next selection is made. Elie’s father is chosen in the selection. In order to save him, Elie runs after him and in doing this he causes a commotion. The SS officers become confused and don’t realize that Elie and his father both get themselves back to the “non-selected” group. This is how Elie is able to save his father.
