With everything going on in David life he felt sorry the most with what was with his father and what he had to deal with when he was a young boy, Although there relationship isn 't so close Wes and his fathers was worst.

Elie prays to God that, God “will [him] the strength to never do what Rabbi Eliahou's son(pg.91).” Elie actually saw that the Rabbi’s son left him. He felt bad because Rabbi Eliahou’s son left him because he was weak.

Though he was filled with sadness, his faith in his family was gone, knowing that; now, he could be more resilient towards his survival.

It gives another dimension to the text. Rilke has rewritten the story, in a different way.
