Storyboard Text

  • Exposition
  • Conflict
  • Rising Action
  • In the beginning of the memoir, Elie wants to learn Kabbalah. Moishe the Beadle decided to teach him even though Elie's father was against him learning. This was before Moishe was taken only to return to warn the Jews, who didn't listen.
  • Climax
  • After Moishe is taken by Germans, he returns to warn the Jews of what he saw. Of course, however, they don't listen and he's seen as a mad-man. Neither Elie nor his father believe Moishe's tragic tale.
  • Falling Action
  • Like Moishe had warned, the Jews in Elie's town Sighet are taken by Germans onto a train. They arrive at Auschwitz after the foreshadowing from the woman on the train and Elie and his mom, as well as his sister, are separated. Elie and his father are beaten and they are on the verge of starvation. 
  • Resolution
  • Due to dire conditions, Elie loses his faith in God. He notices this when everyone around him is praying and he asks himself where God is because God is the one making people suffer and not doing anything about it. After this experience, Elie loses his faith completely.
  • Towards the end of the memoir, Elie's father dies due to sickness and extreme conditions. Although he pleads for Elie to be near him, Elie doesn't move. His father dies and a burden is released off of Elie's shoulders. 
  • At the end of the memoir, Elie is liberated from the death camp. When he is freed and sees his reflection in the mirror, he describes it as a corpse. A few years later, he wrote the memoir about his experiences which is read around the globe.
