they set themselves to be the opposite of those transported, but some was luck.
There were many instances where they avoided transport...and those where they were not able to avoid it. The first time they lied about their ages to receive a better work assignment. The other time they managed to position themselves so that they would not be selected for transport. There was a viable network among the camp inmates and Elie and his father were a part of it. In the end, they were transported from Aushwitz to Buchenwald where Elie's father dies.
