Hey Megan, you would probably be better off to break up some of the questions and re-post them. In any case, I'll take the first two.

1. This depends where in the book you mean but in the camp there was merely two states of being, life or death. Simply remaining alive was a successful day.

2. Eli saves his father in a few places in the book. One is When Elie's father is sent to the left to die with the weak. Elie, who is in the work line, creates a ruckus and in the confusion both Eli and his father are able to sneak back into the workers line.

what do you mean break some of the questions up and re-post them?

You need to re-post them separately. Take a few and ask in separate posts, not like 15 questions in the same e-mail post as you have been doing.
