Storyboard Text

  • In the beginning Elie need.ed his father, and felt that without his father he would be alone, which he felt meant that he would be closer to death
  • MEN
  • My hand tightened its grip on my father. All I could think of was not to lose him. Not to remain alone.
  • Women
  • Elie relied so much on his dad for support and for his dad to care for him. When Elie believed that his father was dead Elie was ready to die with him.
  • Suddenly, the evidence overwhelmed me: there was no longer any reason to live, any reason to fight.
  • When Elie was looking for his father he allows his humanity to slip a little, and he started to think about how much easier it would be without his dad as a burden. Elie does then regret his words, but he still allowed himself to slip away even though it was just for a few seconds.
  • Yet at the same time a thought crept into my mind: If only I didn’t find him! If only I were relieved of this responsibility, I could use all my strength to fight for my own survival, to take care only of myself … Instantly, I felt ashamed of myself forever.
  • Once again Elie allowed himself to be taken over by the greed, and almost betrayed his father to help himself. Unlike last time he did not feel as genuinely guilty, because he knew that those rations could save his life. In the end shows that he is allowing greed take over his actions
  • I listened to him without interrupting. He was right, I thought deep down, not daring to admit it to myself. Too late to save your old father … You could have two rations of bread, two rations of soup …
  • At this point the evil has really started to show up in Elie, because he does not help his father while the guard was beating him. All Elie career about was making sure that he stayed out of trouble.
  • The officer came closer and shouted to him to be silent. But my father did not hear. He continued to call me. The officer wielded his club and dealt him a violent blow to the head. I didn’t move. I was afraid, my body was afraid of another blow, this time to my head.
  • I did not weep, and it pained me that I could not weep. But I was out of tears. And deep inside me, if I could have searched the recesses of my feeble conscience, I might have found something like: Free at last!
  • Although Elie could not live without his father in the beginning, he started to let greed and evil take over, so now that his father did die he was not so sad. Another reason that Elie was not so sad was because he probably felt that he was acting more as a father than his father, because he was taking care of him.
