  • Readers are introduced to Elie, his mother, father, and three sisters in their home in Sighet Hungarian, Transylvania.
  • After a period where foreign Jews were being deported Moshe the beadle, who was teaching Elie Jewish Mysticism, tried to warn everyone that the Germans were going to kill all the Jews, but nobody would listen to him.
  • Ghettos started to form in, and around Elie's town. Elie's family and many others are moved to different ghettos and spend the night at someone else's home. Elie and his father are loaded into a cattle car with other Jews and are transported to a concentration camp. A woman in the car is beaten into silence because is constantly screaming that she sees a fire.
  • When everyone arrives at the camp, the men and women are separated and Elie decides that he must stay with his father. The men are later transported to Auschwitz where many of them lose their hope and their faith, including Elie.
  • The camp that Elie and his father are at is evacuated and the men run for fifty miles to a camp, and then they are boarded onto a train. While on the train the men kill each other for bread that SS officers throw at them. only twelve men including Elie and his father survived on the train.
  • After Elie's father isn't in his bed in the morning, Elie focuses entirely on his survival. On April 11, 1945 Elies camp is liberated and the people are freed. After the liberation, Elie gets sick and is transported to a hospital and he catches a glimpse of himself in the mirror. "From the depths of the mirror, a corpse was contemplating me. The look in his eyes as he gazed at me has never left me." (Pg. 115)
