"I had never asked myself that question. I cried because... because something inside me felt the need to cry. That was all I knew." *This quote shows how his soul was innocent and sensitive and untouched by cruelty.
"And there I was, on the sidewalk, watching them file past, unable to move." *This quote demonstrates how his eyes are not used to observing such tragedy, and therefore, he was speechless and unable to move.
"For the first time, I felt anger rising within me." *This quote shows when Elie's character starts to change because as he says, it's the first time he's ever felt anger.
"I thought of us as damned souls wandering through the void, souls condemned to wander through space until the end of time, seeking redemption, seeking oblivion, without any hope of finding either." *In the beginning of the book, one can infer that Elie possessed hope and faith in life by praying and then crying. On the contrary, this quote demonstrates how the concentration camps beat all of the hope and faith he had left inside of him, and therefore gave up.
"I too had become a different person. 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." *Clearly, this quote explains an obvious character change. He even says that he used to be a different person and have faith, but after his long, tragic journey, his once pure, faithful soul has drifted away and has been replaced by a black flame which was lit during his journey through the Holocaust.
'From the depths of the mirror, a corpse was contemplating me. The look in his eyes as he gazed at me has never left me." *This quote is saying that although he still remained in once piece, and no stranger walking in the street would be able to know about his journey, the "corpse" that was formed inside of him during the Holocaust has become a part of him, and to this day he will always keep it with him.
