The Holocaust was one of the worst events to ever happen to mankind. It was started by the Fuhrer of Germany, Adolf Hitler, who thought that the Aryan race was superior to every other race. He had a massive hatred for the Jewish race and decided to try and exterminate every living Jewish person. He killed around two-thirds of all the European Jews (Byers 10). World War II was going on at the same time as the Holocaust.
The Holocaust genocide was the mass extermination of the Jewish population in Germany and other countries with German influences. The Darfur genocide that started in 2003 and ended when a peace agreement was signed in 2011 was when groups in Darfur accused the Sudanese government of oppressing non-Arab Sudanese people. These two cases are somewhat similar and different at the same time. The Holocaust was the mass murder of over six million Jewish people in German territories. The Holocaust started with Kristallnacht, which is “the Night of Broken Glass.” This occurred on November 7th, 1938.
Auschwitz was the largest extermination center in Poland; it was used for the Jews who lived in Germany or other countries occupied by Germany. But overall the Holocaust was responsible for the death of nearly two out of every three European Jews. These people either died from starvation, gas
Both of these acts of inhumanity were committed not only at Auschwitz but at every death camp established during the Holocaust. Edward Bond a playwright that lived through WW2 says that, “Humanity's become a product and when humanity is a product, you get Auschwitz” (BrainyQuote 1). This means that when humanity becomes a privilege to some and not a natural right to all then things like Auschwitz and in turn the Holocaust happen. The Holocaust death camps were considered both mentally and physically inhumane; the total effect of them shows the true level of inhumanity they installed. The death camps were mentally inhumane on the prisoners; especially during the first few days because most inmates had some to all of their family taken away and killed.
Auschwitz The Auschwitz camp was located in a province of present-day Poland. It consisted of several satellite camps. In each of these camps the prisoners were treated as slaves to work in the German Nazi Industrial factories. They worked in appalling conditions, for example, without clothes, without proper equipment, poorly fed and without medical care. Many of them worked to death or died of starvation.
American forces came the same day of the revolt. Dachu Death March April 26, 1945, 7,000 prisoners were forced on a death march going to Tegernsee. The march lasted 6 days, the march was liberated on April 9th. During those 6 days more than 2,000 prisoners died from either the elements, or were shot by German guards. Slawa Death March On January 20, 1945, approximately 1,000 Jewish prisoners were evacuated from Slawa camp in upper Silesia, western Poland, a region annexed to Germany.
comparative book review 8/24/15 Many people in life, have faced challenges, but very few have face was Eliezer and Ivan have. Eliezer grew up a teenage Jewish boy who was in the holocaust he is one of the few holocaust survivor still alive today. Ivan Denisovich was a part of the Russian gulags for ten years and had a story written about him to spread the word of what happened. According to the dictionary a Russian gulag is “A system of prison camps inside Russia used for political prisoners. Under Joseph Stalin, millions of prisoners in these camps died from starvation and abuse.” Ivan Denisovich, a survivor of these has gone through these camps for ten years.
It evolved around 1933 and 1945. The Holocaust was a time of discrimination against Jews. They were taken away from their communities and humiliated in front of everyone, then they were sent to camps were they were made to work hard, have hardly any food and they were being treated as if they were not human beings. At the end of the Second World War, six million Jews had been killed and one and half million were children. But not just the Jews were involved in the Holocaust.
The exploitation of human rights and prison labor complement the Nazi party’s image and role during World War II. The images left upon by the horrors of the concentration camps and let us imagine and think how the millions of Jews thought moments before capture until moments before execution or death. Concentration camps were truly one of the most fearful aspects of the Holocaust and World War II, and remains as one of the most unpleasant places to even dream
In what ways did the Nazis treatment of Jews change between 1938 and 1945? The Jews were violated throughout the Second World War and the intensity of the violence elevated as the war progressed. In 1938 Kristallnacht took place where German citizens including the SS and the Hitler youth boycotted Jewish shops and businesses due to an assassination of a German politician by a French student . This was persecution of the Jews as many of them were removed from everyday life either by being sent to a concentration camp , 30,000 Jews were sent to concentration camps on that night, or by having property and businesses vandalised and destroyed which left them with nothing. Also more persecution happened the next day as Jewish communities were asked to pay $1 million marks in reparations to what took place on that night .
