section 5

In section 5 of night Elie starts to doubt god because of all the suffering he has seen and gone threw. He asks himself how could God let this go on.On Yom Kippur many Jews fasted and even though Elie is Jewish, he decides he cannot fast and decides to eat. As Eliezer is separted from his father, he becomes worried for his father's conditon and safety. He is later sent away to a different camp and cannot see his father. His father has survived somehow,and eventually Elie tells a rabbi about his lack of faith in God.As Eliezer is in the hospital because of the severe cold weather, news that the Russian army is coming provides hope. The Germans decide to leave because of the news and Eliezer and his father decide to evacuate as well.
