Storyboard Text

  • Exposition
  • God would never let that happen. 
  • Everyone is dead, gone.
  • Rising Action
  • If you dont watch I will shoot you.
  • Stay strong, son.
  • Climax
  • Help! They are going to kill me!
  • Elie was a very devoted Jew. During this time he befriended Moshe the Beadle. One day Moshe went disappeared and when he came back he told people what had happened to the other people, but no one believed him. This foreshadowed what was going to happen. 
  • Falling Action
  • We are U.S. troops. You are being liberated
  • When Elie arrived at the concentration camp there was a shift in what he had once believed. Now the only way he was to survive was to enter apathy. It was the only way he could survive. 
  • Resolution 
  • I'm not a little boy anymore. I am a man.
  • When Elie's father dies it changes everything. For the first time, he had felt free, mentally. Slowly over time, he resented his father more and more because Elie felt like the father rather than the son, and it was a big burden for Elie. 
  • Theme
  • The camp was liberated by American troops. And he was officially physically free. Despite being freed he didn't know if he would ever be emotionally freed. It was his choice now whether or not to be a prisoner in his own mind.  
  • Elie sees himself in a mirror for the first time since the living in the camp.  Although he describes himself as a corpse he sees himself as a man rather than the boy he was before. He kept himself separate to the corpse he saw in the mirror, and this made him free from his mind. 
  • The theme in Night is Elie trying to maintain his faith in God. Throughout the book, there were many different references to God and the Bible. For example, when his father died one of Elie's biggest regret is not holding a religious memorial for him. Even though the Holocaust almost destroyed his faith in God, he came out of it a different person who was able to separate his experience from who he was. And who he was, was a man faithful to God. The holocaust just made his faith stronger.
