Theoretically, no atoms can survive the process by which BHs are created, nor even sub-atomic particles. The centers of black holes are made of very exotic forms of matter.

The singularity of a black hole is a prediction of general relativity. Quantum theory says it can't be so. No one really knows what goes on inside a black hole.
