Akiba Drumer is a deeply devout mystic with a beautiful baritone voice. He loses his faith at Buna and, simultaneously, his will to live. He is sent to the crematories after the selection at Buna. Elie too was once fascinated with Jewish mysticism. He had spent hours learning from the eccentric Moché the Beadle. Like Akiba, Elie had lost his faith in any God who would let his people suffer like they do in the camps.
