In the excerpt of Night, by Elie Wiesel, why did he urge his father to leave the camp with the others, despite having an injured foot?

Question options:

He wanted to ride a train.

There were rumors that all invalids who stayed behind would be killed.

none of these

His father was injured.

“Tomorrow, immediately after nightfall, the camp will set out. Block after block. Patients will stay in the infirmary. They will not be evacuated.” This news made us think. Were the SS going to leave hundreds of prisoners to strut about in the hospital blocks, waiting for their liberators? Were they going to let the Jews hear the twelfth stroke sound? Obviously not. “All of the invalids will be summarily killed,” said the faceless one. “And sent to the crematory in a final batch.” “The camp is certain to be mined,” said another. “The moment the evacuation’s over, it’ll blow up.”
