Storyboard Description


Storyboard Text

  • Elie is deeply religious, and is very serious about everything he does.
  • "By day I studied Talmud and by night I would run to the synagogue and weep over the destruction of the Temple."
  • As Moishe teaches Elie these beliefs, it becomes part of his religion. Overall what Moishe is teaching Elie is that God gives us strength and is Almighty.
  • "I pray to the God within me for the strength to ask him the real questions."
  • "Never shall I forget those flames that consumed my faith forever."
  • Elie, immediately upon entering the camp, has lost his faith forever.
  • Elie is starting to believe that God does not wish to help them, so he stopped praying.
  • "Some of the men spoke of God... As for me, I had ceased to believe to pray... I was not denying his existence, but I doubted his absolute justice."
  • "For God's sake, where is God?"
  • What Elie means by this, is that God is slowly dying, just as people do on gallows. This implies that Elie is losing his religion and his belief in God.
  • ""Where is he? This is where- hanging here from this gallows..."
  • Elie is saying that he is no longer going to thank God, since he has done nothing for him. This is a huge turning point in Elie's religion because he actually feels stronger than God.
  • "...but why would I bless him?... How could I say to him: Blessed be thou, Almighty... who chose us... to be tortured all day and night... I was no longer able to lament. On the contrary... I felt stronger than this Almighty to whom my life had been bound for so long."
