Elie: Throughout the book we see Elie change from a relatively normal teenage school boy and into a emotionally hardened young man who has become so accustomed to death that he rarely gives it a second thought, even if the person dying was a friend .

I soon forgot him. I began to think of myself again. My foot was aching, I shivered with every step.¨
