Nobody believed Moishe the Beadle because they didn't want to believe that it would happen to them. He was an older man so they might of thought that he was making it up. There was also so many different things going on with the war so they didn't believe that the worst thing possible could happen to them. They didn't believe that a human could be that cruel to another human. They probably thought that they were more important than the other people that already got deported because they were foreigners, therefore they thought that the Nazis just wanted to go after the lower class people. Why would they want to believe a person who is living on the streets? They probably thought he was trying to get people to believe his story, but why would they want to? It was only one person that came back and told the story, it might have been more believable if there was a group of people coming back to tell them what was going on, but there was only one person. Moishe told Elie that he came back to warn him and to tell him what was happening and the people would just ignore him because they didn't want to believe that they would be the one chosen to go. He was trying to save the people by telling them what happened to him personally but then again no one would believe a word he said. The Nazis kept the concentration camp a big secret and somehow nobody knew about them. He was the only one that ever came back to say something about it because the Nazis were pretty good at being able to keep people from escaping. They were so good at keeping it a secret that nobody knew what was going on. They probably couldn't believe that somebody would do that to a baby throw them up in the air and use them for target practice that is like the worst thing imaginable. They wouldn't believe that somebody could do that to an infant. If people were to believe him they would have been more prepared. They might have been able to get together and stand up for themselves and if they could have got together in a group when they found out about it. They might of been able to revolt against them and get weapons and things like that so they could of fought back. He came back to warn the people because it was true all these things were happening and they just didn't want to believe him. If they would've believed him the people could've picked up and left and tried to get out.
