Storyboard Text

  • This quote shows how Elie was very religious and was even trying to learn more about his religion.
  • By day I studied Talmud and by night I would run to the synagogue to weep the destruction of the Temple.
  • This demonstrates how praying and talking to God was very important to Elie.
  • I was up at dawn. I wanted to have time to pray before leaving.
  • This is an important scene because it's the first time in the book where Elie questions his faith.
  • Why should I sanctify His name? The Almighty, the eternal and terrible master of the universe, chose to be silent. What was there to thank him for?
  • But, why would I bless Him? Every fiber in me repelled. Because He caused thousands of people to burn in His mass graves?...
  • In this scene Elie is very strongly rejecting his faith due to his experiences in camp.
  • This shows Elies struggle of believing in God or not.
  • If only he could have kept his faith in God, if only he could have considered all of this suffering a divine test, he would have not been swept away by the selection.
  • And in spite of myself, a prayer formed inside of me, a prayer to this God in whom I no longer believed.
  • In this scene Elie thinks that he lost all of his faith but his heart continues to believe.
