What is Elie's primary reason for leaving the infirmary even though his foot had not healed?
He was afraid that the SS would shoot all left in the infirmary and throw them in the furnace.
He would die if he stayed in the camp because the Germans had mined the camp and would blow it up after evacuation.
His foot was doing much better, and he was confident that he could walk on it.
He did not want to be separated from his father who wanted to be evacuated with the others.
He gave his spot in the infirmary to his father, so his father would be safe.
