In the beginning of the story, "Night" Elie describes the day when the Germans orders all of the foreign Jews to be removed, from the town of Sighet. Moshe the Beadle was one of those foreign Jewish people so he was taken away from the village.

Several months later he returns and tells Elie that he was only able to escape being killed by the Germans because he was wounded and pretended to be dead. (pg 6)
