Storyboard Text

  • Exposition: Elie and the rest of his family were living in a small town inside Sighet, Transylvania. At a young age he was informed about being Jewish and practicing his religion. This eagerness brought him to a man named Moishe The Beadle, this gentleman would then soon teach Elie because he is the best person who understands mysticism.
  • Conflict: At this time in Elie’s life World War II is ongoing and is rapidly spreading around the world. It has been three years since the war has begun and the people of Sighet start to worry if it will reach Transylvania. Moishe The Beadle was a first hand witness to the development of the war and realized he must take action to escape his death. Moishe fled back to Sighet to warn others that the end is near.
  • Rising Action: According to the information that Moishe The Beadle shared to the rest of the Jews, he was correct. Although not everyone took action on the problem causing the Nazi Germans to invade the little town affecting everyone within. Everyone was told from Elie’s father that they would be packed into cattle cars and deported to concentration camps. About 100 Jews were in one car alone, everyone had to take turns sitting. While on the way to the camp a woman, Mrs. Schachter, claims to see smoke stacks and fire. This meaning very bad things for the Jews, although no one believed her and beat her so she would stop screaming, but she never stopped.
  • Climax: Everyone who was deported arrived at Birkenau, where the Jews were seperated. These separated groups included ones that would be sent to die, those who would work until death, then men apart from women. This environment changed Elie in multiple ways including him beginning to lose faith because God has not helped him while at the time most in need. Death after death, Elie never could rest because he knew the moment he did is the moment him or his father would be murdered.
  • Falling Action: After surviving the concentration camp at Birkenau, the next challenge is upon Elie and the rest of the Jews. Just after Elie received surgery on his foot he was told to be in bed for three weeks, although news had arrived that they must evacuate to another location 50 miles away. Elie and his father had two choices, leave and have a chance to survive or stay and Elie be liberated while his father was killed. They left, by foot and marched in the snow to the destination.
  • Resolution: After reaching Buchenwald, Elie is left alone. Elie’s father was beaten and thrown into the crematory in his sleep. This leaves Elie with no faith, and no family to survive anymore. Elie undergoes lots of self thinking about all that he has witnessed, many emotions were present in this time. Soon Elie is only one of 12 that have survived, thus leading to the American Army liberating Elie in 1945.
