Storyboard Text

  • Elie's  family are introduced. Elie, his three sisters, Mother, and Father all live in a small town of Sighet, Hungarian Transylvania.  Elie becomes interested in Jewish mysticism. He learns that Moshe the Beadle is a master in these areas and Moshe is willing to teach him.
  • World War II has been going on for 3 years. The people in Sighet wonder if the front will get closer to them or if the war will end before it reaches Hungary.  All the foreign Jews were being deported. Moshe was one of them but he escaped while the other Jews were shot. Moshe tries to warn the rest of Sighet but they don't listen.
  • When the Nazis enter Elie's town, the ghettos are formed. After entering the ghettos the Jews learn that Moshe the Beadle was telling the truth. They will be sent to a camp, however they don't know what kind of camp. Elie and his father are on the same train as Ms. Schachter, who screams about an imaginary fire.
  • The fire Ms. Schachter sees turns out to be from the crematoria. When the family arrives at Birkenau the men are separated from the women. From there, they go to Auschwitz and eventually travel to Buna to work in an electrical factory. There, Elie recants the atrocities of death, despair, and the loss of hope he experienced under the Nazi occupation.
  • After months in the camp, Elie undergoes an operation on his foot. The camp was going to be rescued by the Russians but instead the camp is evacuated. The prisoners begin a fifty mile run to Gleiwitz. Many die, only twelve remain alive when the train reaches the concentration camp Buchenwald. Throughout the ordeal, Eliezer and his father help each other to survive.
  • At Buchenwald, Elie's father dies, leaving Elie feeling a guilty mixture of emotions: despair and relief. Elie survives the ordeal. However, he is left not knowing what is left of him is: “From the depths of the mirror, a corpse gazed back at me. The look in his eyes, as they stared into mine, has never left me.” He was liberated on April 11, 1945.
