  • Climax
  • With German forces capturing Hungary, they order the deportation of all foreign Jews. Moshe is therefore deported. He is deported to a concentration camp but manages to escape and tells the story and horror he was seen. Everyone just believes Moshe has gone crazy and that their is no danger to them.
  • Falling Action
  • Moshe's stories were right. The Nazis invade Elie's village and round up all the Jews and begin the deportation to concentration camps. Elie, his father, and other villagers are put into cattle cars. This is the true begining of Elie's Holocaust experience.
  • Resolution
  • Crematorium!
  • Elie and his family arrive at the Birkenau Selection Center. Elie sees babies and people being thrown into pits and burned.

Near the end of the war, the Russians push the eastern front and are close to liberating the Jews locked in concentration camps in Poland. The Nazis know this and order and evacuation. A death RUN into Germany to Buchenwald Camp. Of the hundreds prisoners that left Buna, 12 survive including Elie and his father.
  • Elie's father becomes deadly ill and dies only months away from freedom. Elie feels guilt about his fathers death. He feels more relived than sad for his fathers passing. Elie does not describe the rest other than he worked days on end until freedom came and he was liberated April 11, 1945.
