Max abandoned his family because someone came to help. Max was with his family when he came. He said only one can come with me. He wants Max to come because they are friends. Max goes and leaves his family, and they get later sent to the death camps. Max is very sad that they couldn’t come. I feel like he made the best decision. If they all stayed they would all go the the death camps. If one of the others went, it would be harder for them continue. Max is a tough guy so he can handle it even though it is hard.
