Storyboard Text

  • Why did I pray? Strange question. Why did I live? Why did I breathe?
  • This quote expresses how much Elie liked praying and how important it was to him. For him, praying came as easy to him and was as necessary for him as breathing was.
  • Why do you pray ?
  • Elie had cared so much about his religion. He believed it would help him through all of his troubles and that it would take him far in his journey through the concentration camps.
  • Days later when Elie was trying to sleep the night before he left for the concentration camp.
  • I woke up at dawn. I wanted to have time to pray before leaving.
  • This quote represents how his religion was no longer the thing that gave Elie hope, it was now his father. His father meant so much to him, as long as he had his father he would be able to push through this traumatic experience.
  • The same thought surfacing over and over: not to be separated from my father.
  • This is key point in the book where it shows that Elie, still somewhat believes in God, but he no longer worships or glorifies God. Elie is now angry at God and is confused why someone supposedly so great what do this to his people.
  • Where He is? This is where-- hanging here from this gallows.
  • for God's sake where is God?
  • As a transition from the previous box, This point in the book marks where Elie completely stops believing in God. However, he is still praying to God which represents that Elie feels almost hopeless to the point where he is praying to someone he does not believe in.
  • And inspite of myself, a prayer formed inside me, a prayer to this God whom I no longer believed in.
  • This quote once again represents that Elie's father is similar to a replacement for religion. Rather than using his religion as his hope and the thing that kept him modest and thoughtful. He was ashamed of himself for being so inconsiderate of his father who had done so much for him. If it weren't for his father, perhaps Elie would have turned greedy and self centered.
  • If only, I didn't find him!... I could use all my strength to fight for my own survival, to care only of myself... Instantly, I felt ashamed, ashamed of myself forever.
