Character Change in Night
This storyboard does not have a description.
This quote demonstrates how Elie was once so innocent and he never would have believed that what the Germans were doing was okay to the rest of the world.
Still I told him that I could not believe that human beings were being burned in our times; the world would never tolerate such crimes...
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.
This quote shows how Elie feels his whole persona has been thrown away.
This quote shows how he doesn't want to say anything because he doesn't want to get beaten himself. He is also used to seeing people get beaten.
My father had just been struck, in front of me, and I had not even blinked. Only yesterday, I would have dug my nails into this criminals flesh. Had I changed that much? So fast?
This scene is very important in Elie's character development because it is seen how he is becoming more concerned with himself and self survival.
At that moment the others did not matter! They had not written me down.
This quote shows a huge transition because Elie was once scared for his life when he saw the chimneys but he got so used to cruel treatment that it didn't even affect him anymore.
Very close to us stood the tall chimney of the crematorium's furnace. It no longer impressed us. It barely drew our attention.
This quote captures the internal struggle Elie was facing while his father was sick-- give him his food or take his fathers?
Too late to save your old father... You could have 2 rations of bread, 2 rations of soup...
