Eliezer struggles to survive against the cruel environment, he also grapples with his faith in God’s justice. A few weeks/months later Eliezer and his father are transported from Auschwitz to Buna.

While Berliners were relying on air transport everyday, missing a single day due to weather could lead to potential starvation. Technology at the time was unable to predict the weather as accurate as we can today, and even still, it is not perfect.
