This storyboard does not have a description.
In the scene above, the prisoners are discussing ways of not to get annotated in a clipboard or paper that will determine their death. Elie knew that he had a tattoo on his left arm. "I had but one thought: not to have my number taken down and not to show my left arm."-line 78 & 79, page 310. While inside, they were giving hope to each other and confidence about the selection, also telling each other to run as fast as possible to show their usefulness.
In lines 32-33, Wiesel writes, "the old men stayed in their corner, silent, motionless, hunted-down creatures. Some were praying." Some strong connotations in these lines have to be when he describes they were "hunted-down" meaning they were to scared to actually process everything that was happening, another was when they stayed silent and motionless, meaning they didn't really have the guts to say anything as they were still processing everything. These words convey his narrative as they're describing the situation at that moment.
The last sentences before the last paragraphs, are Elie feeling like an orphan and feeling like their treating him as one.
