Storyboard Text

  • In the very beginning of the story, the Jews of Sighet still have hope, which changes dramatically once they arrive in the concentration camps.
  • "There could no longer be any doubt: Germany would be defeated."
  • It is at this point in the story that Elie begins to lose his identity to the Nazis.
  • '"But I'm not," I said. "I'm fifteen."'
  • '"No. You're eighteen."'
  • Elie's anger had given him a sort of vibrance, but now as he gives in to his fear and lets it exhaust him, he slowly begins the transition to numbness.
  • "I no longer was afraid, I was overcome with fatigue."
  • Elie's identity has been reduced to almost nothing. He does not feel like an actual person with emotions, he only feels physical things like hunger.
  • "I was nothing but a body. Perhaps even less; a famished stomach."
  • The Jewish people, who had once been so hopeful for an end to the war, had not completely given up. Even though they had lost their identities, they were strong enough to make it through the Death Marches
  • "We were the masters of nature, the masters of the world. We had transcended everything- death, fatigue, our natural needs."
  • "The look in his eyes as he gazed at me has never left me."
  • After being liberated, Elie realized that he is a completely changed person. The concentration camp stole his identity and all his hope, and now he has to rebuild.
