In Chapter 4, Elie is in a camp called Buna. He says that "all that mattered to me was my daily bowl of soup, my crust of stale bread" (page 52). Even after Elie witnesses a young prisoner being hanged and is forced to walk by the dead body and look the hanging man in the face, Elie can only think of food. He says, "I remember that on that evening, the soup tasted better than ever" (page 63). Elie is disinterested in the fate of his father, who he watches getting beaten. The concentration camp has made him so heartless that he witnesses the beating of his father and only feels anger against his father, rather than against the Kapo. Elie also befriends two boys, Yossi and Tibi, and they sing Zionist songs from their Zionist youth organization. Elie, like them, is interested in going to Palestine, and promises to get aboard a ship to Haifa if he survives past the time when the camps are liberated.
