Storyboard Text

  • "By day i studied Talmud and by night i would run to the synagogue to weep over the destruction of the Temple."
  • Elie Wiesel starts off as being very religiously in tact and caring a lot about his Jewish life.
  • Even through the scary times of arriving at the first destination and being scared for their lives, Weisel and the others still have faith in God and stand strong.
  • "'Oh God, Master of the Universe, in your infinite compassion have mercy on us...'"
  • As the Jews start to march to the pit, Weisel becomes skeptical of God for what is happening to all of them. Instead of latching onto God, he starts drifting away.
  • "For the first time, I felt anger rising within me. Why should i sanctify His name?... What was there to thank Him for?"
  • "Never shall I forget those moments that murdered my God... Never shall I forget those things, even were I condemned to live as long as God Himself."
  • Elie keeps suffering not only because of the Jews who are dying but because he feels that his God is also diminishing and he stops believing that God loves His people.
  • Elie is starting to become indifferent about God and doesn't seem to understand the point of giving thanks and praises to God.
  • "As for me, I had ceased to pray... I was not denying His existence, but i doubted His absolute justice."
  • Elie eventually gave up completely on trusting and having hope in God and rebels against the Jewish tradition.
  • "And then, there was no longer any reason for me to fast. I no longer accepted God's silence."
