Ellie Wiesel experiences what many people cannot even imagine is possible, at a very young age. In the death camps, the Jews are treated with a terrible lack of respect, as if they weren’t humans anymore. They worked their prisoners to death, and did many difference experiments on them to test the limits of the human body. To the leaders of the death camps, a human life mattered to them no more as a small animals life. In the death camps, the officers change the prisoners names to numbers, taking away the last thing that the prisoners could still use to remember the past, for they stripped them of every possible memory of earlier happiness.
Picture yourself being ripped from your home and family, losing all dignity and being transported to god knows where? Imagine having everything you worked hard for taken away in a second and then not given a response as to why it is happening.

The Holocaust “By warding off the Jews, I am fighting for the Lords work” (Harran 50). This quote is the exact words of the worlds most accomplished mass murderer in history, Adolf Hitler. His goal was to exterminate the complete Jewish race, to make room for the “Aryan” race. “Jews have been discriminated against, hated, and killed because prejudiced non-Jews believed they belonged to the wrong religion, lacked citizenship qualifications, practiced business improperly, behaved inappropriately, or possessed inferior racial characteristics” (Harran 41). Due to the hatred that was formed against the Jewish people, over the years of 1933 to 1945, about six million innocent people lost their lives.
Hitler deliberately expressed his hate toward Jews and gave ample warnings, as it was all written down in his autobiography “Mein Kampf”.
