Strong beliefs in their ability to survive, helped the Jews to last in the concentration camps longer. The theme of hope even during all of the devastation surrounding the Jews is depicted throughout the novel. For example, Elie was packed into a cattle car where Jews were instructed to throw out dead jews to make room Elie’s father was on the verge of dying and the jews were ready to throw Elie’s father from the cattle car when Elie

One of these was Janusz Korczak, famous children's author, who focused on keeping children calm and not afraid. He would do this through the act of education and never leaving their side, even when their execution was occurring. Korczak was a provider of hope to the children and people of the Treblinka extermination camp on 7th August 1942, even being recognised with a statue in his hometown of Warsaw. This was because he would not give up on the next generation, believing that they would make it out of this struggle so they needed an education. When others would see this, they realised that there were still people helping the needy.
However, the dissertation plays to the role of Everyman being reduced to only essential characteristics.

It is not until they figure out what is at stake for them that they leave Everyman to face his death alone.
