Eliezer's father is near him, but does not respond to his call and seems dead. When the train stops, SS officers order that corpses be thrown out of the car. Two men begin to throw Eliezer's father out of the train, but Eliezer revives him by slapping him viciously and screaming desperately in his face. Elie has enough trouble trying to keep himself alive let alone having to force his father to stay alive. Yes, his frustration is understandable.
