Elie's foot was swollen while he was in the concentration camp- Auschwitz. He went to the doctor in the concentration camp and was told he needed some rest. Puss continuously kept oozing out of his foot. The camp found out that the Soviet Army was just a couple of miles away so the camp had to be liquidated. The weak were left behind while the others strong enough to walk the death march left. Since it was snowing, Elie's foot got so cold, it began bleeding. He was about to fall behind which would mean getting shot but he kept on walking. He does end up surviving making it to the other camp and luckily, survived from being one of the eleven-million murdered.
