Some called Moshe eccentric and others called him crazy. Moshe had no real home but most people consider him harmless. He manages to escape the camps early in the story. He tries to warn the townspeople of the horrors of the Holocaust. They ignore him and think he's mad.
Also Moshe was physically awkward, like a clown. He would often chan and sing about devine suffering hence the lable of eccentric or crazy.
