Storyboard Text

  • "Why did I pray? Strange question. Why did I live? Why did I breathe?"
  • In the beginning, Elie has always been so curious about his life and the purpose of himself.
  • After the first night, Elie is starting to go into a state of broken faith and shock. He is starting to lose himself.
  • "The student of the Talmud, the child that I was, had been consumed in the flames... A dark flame had entered into my soul and devoured it."
  • "I stood petrified. What had happened to me? My father had just been struck, in front of me, and I had not even blinked. I had watched and kept silent.
  • The fact that Elie did not cry shows how he is becoming used to the fact that there is no hope and how he is becoming more cold hearted.
  • Elie lost his sense of purity and innocence and is now feeling the need to rebel, which is eating up his integrity and is a catalyst for more evil.
  • "I did not fast... Deep inside me, I felt a great void opening."
  • "I did not weep, and it pained me that I could not weep... And deep inside me, if I could have searched the recesses of my feeble conscience, I might have found something like: Free at last!...
  • Elie's feelings and emotions became numb that he does not weep over his father's death. He might have felt that even his father was a burden to him at this point.
  • "I was transferred to the children's block, where there were six hundred of us... I no longer thought of my father, or my mother."
  • At the end of the book, Elie lost his family members, yet he does not think of them or mourn over them because he lacks dignity and does not see the point in life anymore.
