Storyboard Text

  • 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...
