Storyboard Description

Change of Elie Wiesel's character over the course of "Night"

Storyboard Text

  • At the beginning novel, Elie's character can be described as childish innocence, not quite understanding why something like the Holocaust is a big deal. But that would soon change when he would be taken out of his home...
  • Why do you want people to believe you so much? In your place I would not care whether they believed me or not...
  • "They passed me by, like beaten dogs, with never a glance in my direction. They must have envied me."
  • As Elie is witnessing the cruelty for the first time, he is beginning to get exposed to the horrible things he will soon have to endure.
  • "Never shall I forget that night, the first night in camp, that turned my life into one long night seven times sealed."
  • Elie's first night in the camp still haunts him to this day, which shows how the evolution of his character is turning for the worse.
  • At this point, the reader can really see Elie's fear and loss of humanity. The Holocaust has really changed him for the worst.
  • "I stood petrified...My father had just been struck, in front of me, and I had not even blinked.
  • "For a ration of bread I was able to exchange cots to be next to my father."
  • Despite everything, Elie never entirely loses his humanity and love for his father.
  • The last line in the book shows how much the Holocaust has really affected Elie. His life has been torn apart, and what is left is a shell of a man.
  • "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."
