Ghettos were also formed to monitor the Jewish population, which were enclosed city districts which the Germans concentrated the Jews. On May 7, 1945 the German armed forces surrendered to the Allies. The next day was the official end of the war, also called V-E Day. Many of the survivors of the Holocaust, who were left with nothing, went to displaced persons camps set up by the Allied powers. “The crimes committed during the Holocaust devastated most European Jewish communities and eliminated hundreds of Jewish communities in occupied eastern Europe entirely.” (United States Holocaust Memorial Museum) There have been several attempts to measure the effects of the Holocaust.
Not only was in for Jews they placed homosexuals, criminals of war, and political prisoners, and Jehovah's Witnesses. This camp killed about one million one hundred thousand people. They hand a system at this camp, they would send most of them to the left and some to the right. The people going to the left were unknowingly walking into a death trap, the Nazis would not tell the victims this to prevent them fighting back. Instead the nazis told them that they were going to be sent to work but first they had to take a shower, so the Jews were lead into this huge shower room with fake shower head and were told to strip their clothes.
The Holocaust Amanda Marie Flores HIS 104 World Civilizations II Instructor: Jennifer Bridges November 27th 2011 Holocaust is a Greek word coming from the word “holos” meaning (whole), and “kaustos” meaning (burned). The holocaust was a state-sponsored discrimination along with murder of about six million Jews by the collaboration of the Nazi regime. The Nazis who were in power in Germany in January of 1933, believed that the Jews reckoned inferior, and the Germens were racially superior to the fact. Adolf Hitler was one of the men who helped form the Holocaust, among being the main ruler during this time. Hitler like many others of this time blamed the Jews for the country’s defeat back in 1918.
Life Inside the Gates Between the years nineteen thirty-three to nineteen forty-five during World War II, during the Holocaust, a man named Adolf Hitler had taken power in Germany. He had begun the extermination of any Jewish person, or anyone who was against Hitler's actions. To exterminate Jewish people there were many concentration camps that were built and used. These camps are made up of solid concrete walls, large gates, and one purpose, to keep whoever or whatever goes in and make sure they never come out. While many people felt well informed about Nazi concentration camps, most do not truly understand the inner workings of the camps.

Nazi Genocide I chose to research and write about the Nazi Genocide. I have a lot of German in my background so I thought it would be interesting to learn a little about the history of some of my ancestors. I found out a lot of information, including that of World War II and the allies of Germany and the allies of the United States. World War II began on September 1, 1939, but the genocide actually began on April 12, 1939 when Adolf Hitler told the Czech foreign minister Chvalkovsky that they were going to destroy the Jews. Hitler avoided giving any clear written data when it came to his order the extermination of the Jews as well as the Jewish civilians.
THE HOLOCAUST: WAS IT NECESSARY? The Holocaust: Was it Necessary? Abstract The study of the literature was done on the subject of the famous ordeal that took place in Germany sixty-nine years ago. Points were studied from the two sides, the first being against the incident and the second side, in the denial of the Holocaust. Questions concerning morality on the setting of the orders to kill the Jews were analyzed, various statements were collected to portray if the killing was really correct, and on how the reaction of visitors of the concentration camps were studied.
----------------------- Thesis Statement The mass killing of people in Eastern Europe known as “The Holocaust” impacted world history in many ways. Propaganda and media played a huge role in the Holocaust, that’s when Joseph Goebbels comes in to play, a master Propagandist. The Holocaust started from January 30, 1933 to May 8, 1945, when the war in Europe had officially ended. During those times Adolf Hitler was the chancellor of Germany. Approximately 6 million(1.5 million of these being children) were persecuted, murdered and 5,000 Jewish communities were destroyed.
Almost every Jew was captured and sent a death camp. The defiant actions of resistance in Warsaw inspired other Jews to do the same in places such as the Bialystok and Minsk ghettos and the camps in Treblinka and Sobibor.” Today, Days of Remembrance ceremonies to commemorate the victims and survivors of the Holocaust are linked to the dates of the Warsaw ghetto uprising Citations * " Gutman, Y.
