What haunts Elie about his father's last moments?

Consider that Elie mentions fathers and sons several times in the final chapters of the novel. How do these details help create a theme?

This is a question on my homework that cannot quite understand so help would be nice.

Eliezer is haunted by the fact that instead of being with his father and taking care of him during his final moments, he chose to go to sleep. Thus, he was left with the guilt of leaving his father alone to die.
