      False

    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because Elie's father did not die on the trainride to Glieweitz and was not tossed off with other corpses. In the book "Night" by Elie Wiesel, it is mentioned that Elie's father died in Buchenwald, a concentration camp, after enduring harsh conditions and mistreatment.

    The other prisoners were kind to Elie's father, because he was ill.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because the other prisoners were not kind to Elie's father. In fact, they were quite cruel and indifferent towards him. Elie's father was weak and sickly, and the harsh conditions of the concentration camp made it difficult for him to survive. The other prisoners saw him as a burden and did not offer any assistance or kindness. Instead, they were focused on their own survival and often acted in selfish ways.

    • A.

      Putting bandages on him

    • B.

      Speaking words of encouragement to him

    • C.

      Telling Elie that she, too, is Jewish and asking him to keep it a secret

    Correct Answer
    B. Speaking words of encouragement to him
    Explanation
    After Idek beats Elie, the French girl soothes him by speaking words of encouragement to him. This suggests that she tries to provide emotional support and comfort to Elie after the traumatic incident. By offering words of encouragement, she may be trying to uplift his spirits and reassure him that he is not alone in his suffering. This act of kindness and empathy from the French girl shows her compassion and solidarity with Elie, potentially helping him cope with the physical and emotional pain inflicted by Idek.

    • B.

      The camp was under attack by American planes

    • C.

      Everyone else was sleeping during the night

    Correct Answer
    B. The camp was under attack by American planes
    Explanation
    The correct answer is that the camp was under attack by American planes. This would explain why the SS were busy and not watching, and why everyone else was sleeping during the night. The chaos and distraction caused by the attack would create an opportunity for the desperate prisoner to crawl out and steal soup without being noticed.

    Correct Answer
    C. Rosh Hashanah
    Explanation
    Rosh Hashanah is the correct answer because it is the Jewish New Year. It is a two-day celebration that marks the beginning of the Jewish High Holy Days. During this time, Jewish people reflect on the past year, seek forgiveness for any wrongdoings, and make resolutions for the upcoming year. The term "Rosh Hashanah" translates to "head of the year" in Hebrew, emphasizing its significance as the start of a new year in the Jewish calendar.

    Juliek, the Pole with eyeglasses and a cynical smile in a pale face, was a musician who worked in the factory. This can be inferred from the description provided, which mentions that Juliek had eyeglasses and a cynical smile in a pale face. This description does not align with being a Kapo or a foreman, but it does suggest a creative and artistic nature which is often associated with musicians.

The knife and spoon would have been essential for obtaining and consuming food, highlighting the father's concern for his son's well-being and ability to navigate the challenges of the camp.

The prayer is a way for the living to express their grief and seek solace, while also praising and acknowledging the greatness of God. It serves as a way to pay tribute to the departed and to ask for their souls to find peace and rest in the afterlife.

    Correct Answer

    The figurative language "Two lambs with hundreds of wolves lying in wait for them" suggests a situation where two vulnerable and defenseless beings are surrounded by a large number of dangerous and threatening entities. This description is used to depict the cauldrons of soup left out during a raid on the camp because the cauldrons, like lambs, are vulnerable and exposed to the wolves, symbolizing the hungry prisoners who desperately need the food.
