This separation was a common practice in concentration camps, where families were often split up upon arrival. Elie was forced to go with the male prisoners, while his mother and sister were sent to the women's section.

    Explanation
    Elie's dad was beaten because he asked to go to the restroom. In concentration camps like Auschwitz, prisoners were subjected to harsh and dehumanizing conditions. Basic human needs and rights were often denied, and any request for such needs, like using the restroom, could be met with violence from the guards. The prisoners were treated with extreme cruelty and any form of resistance or inconvenience was met with punishment.

    Correct Answer
    A. He watched a child be hanged and then die.
    Explanation
    The event that confirmed Elie God was dead was when he watched a child being hanged and then die. This traumatic experience likely shattered his belief in a benevolent and just God, leading him to believe that God no longer existed.

    Elie's lack of tears when his father died can be attributed to the extreme conditions he experienced in the Holocaust.
