At this point, Elie and his father have walked a significant distance in order to move to another camp.  They have, thereafter, been loaded into a train for the remainder of the journey.  They are starving at this point, and when nearby crowds throw bread into the transport, another father on the train snatches a piece and hides it in his shirt, intending to share it with his son.  His son misinterprets the move and attacks the father, killing him despite protests from the father.  Soon after, others in the train car descend on the son, killing him as well.
