Storyboard Text

  • The religious journey of Elie began, with his interest and eagerness in learning the Kabbalah, with Moishe the Beadle.
  • Thus began my initiation. Together we would read over and over again, the same page of the Zohar. Not to learn it by heart but to discover within the very essence of divinity.
  • For the first time, I felt anger rising within me. Why should I sanctify His name? The Almighty, the eternal and terrible Master of the Universe, chose to be silent. What was there to thank him for?
  • As Elie listens to his father pray, he wonders why were these things happening?
  • Yisgadal, veyiskadash, shmey raba.
  • After hearing people pray, this is the turning point in Elie's religious life has he begins to lose faith.
  • As for me, I ceased to pray. I concurred with Job! I was not denying His existence, but I doubted His absolute justice
  • Heil Hitler!
  • Where He is? This is where—hanging here from this gallows ...
  • This signifies, how Elie thought that the Germans had murdered the God he always knew.
  • I did not fast... I no longer accepted God’s silence. As I swallowed my ration of soup, I turned that act into a symbol of rebellion, of protest against Him.
  • Elie still accepts that God is there, but rebels against him, because he is not doing anything about the horrors they are facing.
  • Oh God, Master of the Universe, give me the strength never to do what Rabbi Eliahu’s son has done.
  • In an ironic twist, at the end, Elie prays to the God whom he no longer believes in, to stay with his father, who dies the next day.
