Storyboard Text

  • Eliezer Wiesel spent a lot of time devoted to learning more about his Jewish faith.
  • During this time in 1944, Hitler's army was invading different countries and persecuting "weak" members of society.
  • One day, his instructor Moishe the Beadle came back from a near death experience and warned that Nazis would ruin their lives...but nobody listened.
  • Sighet, Romania 1944
  • Over the course of three days after the Nazi arrival, all Jews were deported from Sighet.
  • As Moishe had warned, Nazis came into Sighet and forced all Jews into ghettos
  • All Jews were deported to an Auchwitz work camp by train.
  • ?
  • Aboard the train was a lady that most thought was crazy. She kept yelling about flames and furnaces outside the train even though nobody could see them.
  • FIRE!!!!
  • Upon arriving to Auchwitz, Elie and his father were separated by his mother and sisters. For the first time, Elie sees the atrocities of the Nazis.
  • They were throwing babies into furnaces!!! The inmates of this camp began to view it as a living hell, and Elie began to lose his faith in God.
  • Eliezer and his father were then moved after three weeks to another work camp called Buna where they sorted electronic parts.
  • At first, the camp seemed nicer and more humane. Inmates got more food and were treated better
  • That all changed, however, when a thirteen year old boy was hung, starting a line of more executions
