Sep 20, Putnam City star Collin Clay never met his father in person until he was 13 years old. Once together, they became a duo that has led to great.
At the heart of this theme is Eliezer's relationship with his own father. Yet the narrator also pays attention to other father-son relationships among the prisoners in the camps; his observations of other fathers and sons make him think about his duties to his own father.
In normal life, before the Holocaust began, Eliezer's father has great respect in the community and within Eliezer's house. The relationship of father to son is traditional—the biblical commandment to honor one's parents is paramount in Jewish families like Eliezer's.
After the family is split up at Birkenau, Eliezer and his father have only each other to live for. As his father weakens, the traditional roles of protector and protected are reversed. It is Eliezer who must protect his father. During their time in the camps, Eliezer time and again feels shame when he is angry at his father for not being able to avoid beatings or for not being able to march correctly.
His father continues to look out for him—he gives Eliezer a few tools to keep when it looks like he will be taken away, and he rouses a neighbor to save his son when someone on the train begins to strangle Eliezer.

I wanted that relationship. I wanted it to be there. When she was pregnant again with Collin, they broke up and moved apart. Rob moved to Jacksonville, Florida, where he had at one point been in the Jaguars' training camp and had a budding music career. Verdalette went to North Carolina, where she and her two sons would live with her mom. Rob and Collin first spoke when he was 4 or 5 years old, but not in person. Life decisions kept them apart.
But that would change with that initial visit five years ago. A few days into it, Verdalette suggested her sons stay. She later moved to OKC. Rob had his shot at redemption, a chance to help his sons. He first needed to get Collin off the battered grass of Capps Middle School's football field as he desperately searched for air. Whether it was the first play or 60th that day did not matter. It was becoming a ritual for year-old Collin to be bent over or on the ground gasping from asthma.
Others believed asthma was zapping any hope of playing football in the future. Collin grew frustrated and his temper sometimes took over. Rob started roaming the sideline every day with inhaler and breathing treatment handy.
His son was not going to lose this battle. Collin would do a treatment before and sometimes during each practice or game, his father always there to help.
