Storyboard Text

  • Exposition
  • Conflict
  • Rising Action
  • At the very beginning of the story, Eliezer often prayed at the synagogue with Moshe the Beadle. Eliezer often cried when he prayed and he took his religion very seriously. Eliezer wanted to study Kabbalah, the ancient Jewish tradition of mystical interpretation of the Bible, but his father disapproved. 
  • Climax
  • During the conflict of the story, Moshe the Beadle is deported to a concentration camp before the rest of the Sighet Jews but he escapes and returns to communicate the news. The community tragically took Moshe for a lunatic, thinking his story was crazy and unable to happen. The Jews of Sighet didn't listen to him because of his social class in their society.
  • Falling Action
  • During the rising action of the story, Eliezer, his family, and the rest of the Sighet Jews are loaded into a cattle car to be transported to the concentration camp, Auschwitz. During the journey, Mrs. Schachter, a citizen of Sighet, screamed and rambled about a fire in the distance, which was never seen by any of the other passengers. Little did they know, she was foreshadowing what they would soon run into at the Auschwitz concentration camp. 
  • Resolution
  • During the climax of the story, a young boy, "Pipel" is hanged along with two other men for sabotage. "Pipel" was a very respected person in the concentration camp, and one man kept asking where God was. When the time came for the execution, "Pipel" was silent, and the whole camp was silent. Due to him being so light, he didn't die immediately when he fell, and he hung for almost half an hour. That day Eliezer's soup tasted like corpses. 
  • During the falling action of the story, all of the Jews at Buna were moved to a secondary camp. They were not provided a mode of transportation, therefor they had to run through thick snow in harsh conditons to get there. The SS officers shot anyone who fell behind or if they did not follow orders. His father had to wake him up because it is dangerous to fall asleep in snow. 
  • During the resolution of the story, Eliezer has to take care of his father extensively because he had became so weak. Eliezer sometimes pondered what it would be like without his father, but quickly regretted the thought. His father eventually died of dysentery and was supposedly taken to the crematorium, possibly still breathing.
