    Which is a Jewish prayer for the dying?

      Talmud scriptures

    • B.

      Bible Scriptures

    • C.

      Kaddish

    • D.

      Kabala

    Correct Answer
    C. Kaddish
    Explanation
    Kaddish is a Jewish prayer traditionally recited by mourners after the death of a loved one, but it is not specifically a prayer for the dying. It is a prayer that praises and sanctifies God's name and expresses the hope for peace and redemption. While it is often recited during the mourning period, it is not exclusive to the dying process. The Talmud and Bible scriptures are important texts in Judaism, but they do not specifically pertain to prayers for the dying. Kabala, on the other hand, is a mystical tradition within Judaism and does not directly relate to prayers for the dying.

  • 9. 

    What is Elie's new name at the camp?

    • A.

      Eliezer

    • B.

      A-7713

    • C.

      Kapo

    • D.

      R2D2

    Correct Answer
    B. A-7713
    Explanation
    Elie's new name at the camp is A-7713. This suggests that his individual identity has been stripped away, and he is now only known by a number. This dehumanization is a common practice in concentration camps, where prisoners are reduced to mere numbers to further degrade and control them. The use of numbers instead of names serves to devalue and dehumanize the prisoners, making it easier for the camp authorities to treat them as objects rather than individuals.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    What item did the SS extract from the Jews at the camp?

    • A.

      Inheritance

    • B.

      Star of David

    • C.

      Gold teeth

    • D.

      Feet

    Correct Answer
    C. Gold teeth
    Explanation
    During the Holocaust, the SS (Schutzstaffel) would often extract valuable items from Jews in concentration camps. One of the most common items taken from them was their gold teeth. This was done by forcibly removing the gold fillings or crowns from their teeth, as gold was a highly valuable commodity. The SS would then melt down the gold and send it off for further use or trade. This cruel practice was just one of the many ways in which the Nazis exploited and dehumanized the Jewish people during this dark period in history.

    • D.

      Extracting is himself

    Correct Answer
    A. Saying he is. sick
    Explanation
    Elie prevents the SS from extracting the item by saying he is sick. By feigning illness, he creates a situation where the SS cannot force him to participate in the extraction process. This tactic allows Elie to protect the item from being taken away.

    Julick, the violinist, symbolizes the loss of Elie's faith. Throughout the book, Elie's faith in God is tested and ultimately shattered by the horrors of the Holocaust. Julick's death represents a turning point for Elie, as he witnesses the senseless killing of an innocent and talented musician. This event further erodes Elie's belief in a just and compassionate God, leading to his loss of faith. Julick's death serves as a catalyst for Elie's spiritual journey and the questioning of his religious beliefs.
