Storyboard Description

This is for Mrs. Haney's class summary on the book "Night" Elie Wiesel was taken from his home in Sighet and moved to work camps during the Holocaust. He was separated from his mother and sister Tzipora, who were killed immediately. Elie and his father were sent to work for around three or four years. His father died of dysentery in the end, and Elie got freed and almost died of food poisoning. It is still hard for Elie to go back to Auschwitz today. After his interview with Oprah, he said he wouldn't go back. Ever.

Storyboard Text

  • My name is Elie Wiesel. I went through the Holocaust when I was barely 15! This is a summary of my book "Night"
  • This is Auschwitz. One of the biggest concentration camps and I was sent here. We were beaten by the SS and the Kapos.
  • Now let's go back in time to when I was 15
  • We were barely fed, slept in bad conditions and forced to work in harsh jobs!
  • Harsh living conditions and poor rations of soup and bread, we were all scrawny and pale.
  • Arbeit macht frei! (Work makes you free!
  • At night, they slept on cots. Around two or three to a bed, with one sheet to a person, and no pillow. Even in the cold weather they only had one blanket
  • Elie worked in an electrical house as well as doing hard work such as lifting stones.
  • By the end of Night, Elie's father died from dysentery. He (Elie) had been liberated, and after that he almost died from food poisoning. The Holocaust made him how he is today, and it is still very hard for him to be at Auschwitz.
