In chapter 4 of "Night," Franek demands that Elie give him his crown and Elie refuses.  He tells him several different reasons that he can't give up the crown including the excuse that he wouldn't be able to eat, then that he had to ask his father.  Finally after getting tired of waiting, Franek began to abuse Elie's father.  He knew that if he abused Elie's dad that Elie would give in and give him the gold crown.  After watching his father be beaten and abused for two weeks Elie finally agreed and a dentist pulled the tooth.  This satisfied Franek for a while but then two weeks after losing his crown the Polish prisoners were transferred and he felt that he had given up his crown for nothing. (pg 56)
