This storyboard does not have a description.
In line 36, Wiesel writes, "And my father? I first thought of him now." This part of the story shows how people like Wiesel have the motivation to continue in the concentration camps because Wiesel explains his concern for his father, and wanting to see him again is his motivation to pass the selection phase.
In line 34, Wiesel explains the thoughts that are going around in all of the inmates' minds, that "we would know the verdict: death or reprieve." The connotative words in this sentence are "death" and "reprieve". "Death" in this part of the story invokes a dark feeling to the story. Everyone is scared for their lives, that they fear death even more. "Reprieve" is connotative in this part of the story because for some inmates, maybe being reprieved isn't a victory or relief, but maybe a punishment. These words add a darker meaning to the story and Wiesel's narrative.
In lines 190-191, Wiesel says, "At last, we began the return journey. How I longed for an order to run! The military march. The gate. The camp. I ran toward Block 36." This shows Wiesel's relief of being done in the concentration camps. He tells us his relief and sincere happiness to be out of the camps, but also adds a feeling of sadness because he lost his father. Later on in the story, Wiesel soon finds his father alive and well.
