Through the visions of the concentration camp Elie was so devastated by the hangings of children and women.
"Never shall I forget those moments which murdered my god and my soul and turned my dreams to dust..."
"Why should I bless his name? The eternal, lord of the universe, the all-powerful and terrible was silent. What had I to thank him for?"
Elie witnessed father and son kill each other over a piece of bread. This disturbed Elie until he just gave up on hope.
Elie lost faith in God. He watched innocent Jews die without God's help. How could he sit and watch millions of Jews die.
"I did not deny god's existence, but I doubted his absolute justice..."
Elie watched innocent Jews being burned by the flames. This scared him forever, never could he forget losing his family and seeing the evils in the Nazi's.
"Never shall I forget those flames which consumed my faith forever..."
Elie at this point was nearly a skeleton of a being. He had no belief and was so distance from God that he Questioned his existence
"Where is the divine Mercy? Where is God? How can I believe, how can anyone believe, in this merciful God?"
“I did not fast. First of all, to please my father who had forbidden me to do so. And then, there was no longer any reason for me to fast. I no longer accepted God’s silence. As I swallowed my ration of soup, I turned that act into a symbol of rebellion, or protest against Him.”
Elie's loss of faith is bound noticeable through the story. He took various acts that went against God.
