Storyboard Text

  • You say your 40, and you say your 18.
  • A farmer
  • Your profession?
  • This is showing how the SS officer came toward the Jews shouting, "Men to the left! Women to the right!" (Wiesel 29).
  • This represents when an inmate came up to Elie and his dad and told them to tell Dr. Mengele a false age. They told Elie to say he was 18 and they told his dad to say he was 40.
  • This image is showing when Dr. Mengele asked what Elie's profession was. Elie was wondering if he should say that he was a student, but he said farmer instead.
  • This image represents when the Jews, including Elie and his father, could see the flames rising from the crematorium. They witnessed children being unloaded from a truck, to be put into the flames.
  • This image shows when Elie and other inmates had to get their hair shaved off. They also had to take off their current clothes and put on clothes that Elie described as rags. During this time, Elie kept thinking not to get separated from his father.
  • After being released from getting their hair shaved off, the Jews were so happy and relieved that they were still alive. Elie said that a lot of them were hugging, praying, and crying.
