Moche' the Beadle had been removed by the police with the other foreign Jews.  He escaped death by pretending he was dead as all the other Jews were killed.  He made his way back to Sighet to warn his friends and neighbors of what was really happening to the Jews.  His neighbors and friends laughed at him.  They said he was crazy and the more he tried to warn them the more they ignored him.  On page 4 we read:

"I don't attach my importance to my life any more.  I'm alone. No, I wanted to come back, and to warn you.  And see how it is, no one will listen to me..."
