They begin to search for family members, friends, or perhaps even anyone to give them companionship. For example, in the novel “Night”, Ellie writes that when he arrived at the camp, he held his father’s hand. This simple act of just holding his father’s hand implies that he is searching for some kind of relief.
In the book Night, Elie and his father are sent to a concentration camp called Auschwitz, and then Buna. At both of these camps, the Nazis were unfair to all of the Jews and treated them horribly.

Her name is a name that I shall hopefully never forget her name was Sonia Aronowitz Goldstein. Sonia recalled those miserable days in great detail, describing how the women were starved, how they lacked of sleep, and also how they worked through physical, mental, and emotional suffering.
