how does deportation change moshe?, How do others feelings toward him change?
When Moishe is deported and returns he is a completely different person, the experience has jaded him toward religion because of the horrible things he has seen. [ One day Hungarian police arrest Moshe, along with other foreigners; Elie is crushed to have lost his tutor. When
the prisoners are taken away, no one in the village knows where they are going or if they will be seen again.
however, reappears in the village after about three months. He tells the villagers about his miraculous
escape. He had been shot in the leg, and the soldiers assumed he was dead; before they discover he is breathing,
he manages to escape.
Moshe also tells the villagers appalling stories about how the Jews are being tortured and killed. He explains
how the deportees are boarded onto horribly crowded trucks and taken to concentration camps. He tells how
babies are tossed into the air and used as shooting targets and how mass numbers of Jews are killed by machine
gun fire. These tales are so shocking that Elie and the other villagers do not believe them; they simply think that
Moshe has gone mad during his absence. Moshe weeps and tells his stories again. ]
