Storyboard Text

  • In the beginning of the journey to the concentration camp, Elie quickly realized he cannot always tolerate negative behavior. His innocence was turned into bad thoughts when he was in favor of hurting Mrs. Schäcter.
  • We tried to reason with her, more to calm ourselves, to catch our breath, than to soothe her... But it was all in vain..It was as though madness had infected all of us.
  • Character Changes
  • Elie's harsh journey overwhelmed him, and as a result, he felt lifeless. After realizing the unfairness and mistreatment in the concentration camp, he learned that it was every man for himself.
  • I too had become a different person. The student of Talmud, the child I was, had been consumed by the flames. All that was left was a shape that resembled me. My soul had been invaded-and devoured-by a black flame.
  • Elie began to only care about his survival as well as his father's, but no longer cared about anyone else's. His selfish thoughts progressed as the journey got more difficult and people needed more help from the others around them.
  • At that moment, the others did not matter! They had not written me down.
  • Although Elie no longer cared about the countless weak and dying people around him, he cared for his father. His selflessness demonstrates his generosity, however, he did not care for the others that needed help.
  • I fought my way to the coffee cauldron like a wild beast. And I succeeded in bringing back a cup. I took one gulp. The rest was for him.
  • Despite Elie's care for his weak father, he did not mourn his death. Instead, he felt free from the burden of taking care of him when he was sick. Although taking care of him was somewhat selfish because he just wanted someone to accompany him throughout the journey, it is also selfish that he did not mourn.
  • On my father's cot lay a sick person... I did not weep... And deep inside me , if I could have searched the recesses of my feeble conscience, I might have found something like: Free at last!
  • One day when I was able to get up , I decided to look at myself in the mirror on the opposite wall. I had not seen myself since the ghetto. From the depths of the mirror, a corpse was contemplating me.
  • After Elie left the concentration camp, he no longer viewed himself the same way. After years of suffering, he not only physically changed, but his mental state completely changed. Elie no longer felt alive and it was as if part of him died in the concentration camp.
