Storyboard Text

  • Religion Changes
  • The tragic cruelties Elie witnessed changed his entire life. He lost his faith not only in humanity, but in God too.
  • Never shall I forget those flames that consumed my faith forever.
  • Elie was deeply bothered by the fact that although many Jews kept their faith, God still did not help them through their harsh journey. He did not believe God was there for them when they needed his help.
  • For the first time, I felt anger rising within me. Why should I sanctify His name? The Almighty, the eternal and terrible Master of the Universe, chose to be silent. What was there to thank Him for?
  • Elie's broken faith was weakened when he thought of the mistreatment of the Jews that God did not prevent. He could not comprehend why one should still pray to God when he lets his people suffer.
  • How do You compare to this stricken mass gathered to affirm to You their faith, their anger, their defiance? Why do you go on troubling these poor people's wounded minds, their ailing bodies?
  • Elie's decision to not fast on Yom Kippur shows how he no longer cares about maintaining his faith in is religion. Although it was normal to be starving in a concentration camp, those who remained faithful in their religion fasted.
  • And then, there was no longer any reason for me to fast.
  • Although Elie claimed to feel stronger than God, he realized that in a community of people who were still faithful in God, he felt like an outcast. As a result of the lost faith, he basically lost his connection with the other Jews.
  • I was the accuser, God the accused. My eyes had opened and I was terribly alone in a world without God, without man. Without love or mercy. I was nothing but ashes now, but I felt myself to be stronger than this Almighty to whom my life had been bound for so long.
  • Elie's reaction to his father's death suggests that after encountering the cruelty and harsh obstacles in the concentration camp, it caused him to lose his faith and emotion. Elie's father's death was probably minimal to what he experienced over the years. Therefore, the cruelty Elie experienced caused him to lose his faith in his religion and humanity.
  • On my father's cot there lay another sick person. They must have taken him away before daybreak and taken him to the crematorium. No prayers said over his tomb. No candle lit in his memory.
