Storyboard Text

  • Pick a scene that supports the idea that although beaten down, the prisoners had creative ways of coping with their confinement and sustaining themselves. "After the soup,we gathered between the bunks". The veterans told us: "Your lucky to have been brought here so late". This connects to the scene because they have already been through a hard time but still kepping calm and gathering with each other while eating soup and talking. 
  • In lines 32-33, Wiesel writes, "the old men stated in their corner, silent, motionless, hunted-down creatures. Some were praying. "Which words in this quotation have strong connotations? How do these words convey the tone of Wiesel's narrative? The words old,silent,and praying give a sense of hopelessness as they give you the image of people who are scared and just want to overcome this occasion and don't want to die. 
  • Wisel sometimes uses punctuation and sentence structure to convey meaning. Reread the second to last paragraph in the text. Why does he use short, incomplete sentence ? How does this stylistic approach affect meaning? He uses these short sentences because hes scared and doesn't want the day to go by or maybe he does he just feels undecided .
