Eliezer is transferred without his father to the building unit, where he has to drag blocks of stone around, and he learns that a selection (exam for assigning people to the crematory) is planned for that day. The head of Eliezer's block gives some helpful advice: run as fast as possible in front of the SS doctors, and don't be afraid. The advice is given to help him survive.
