Dealing on the black market, he lived in high style. In 1942 and early 1943, the Germans decimated the ghetto’s population of some 20,000 Jews through shootings and deportations. Several thousand Jews who survived the ghetto’s liquidation were taken to Plaszow, a forced labor camp run by the sadistic SS commandant Amon Leopold Goeth. Moved by the cruelties he witnessed, Schindler contrived to transfer his Jewish workers to barracks at his factory. In late summer 1944, through negotiations and bribes from his war profits, Schindler secured permission from German army and SS officers to move his workers and other endangered Jews to Bruennlitz, near his hometown of Zwittau.

His book, The Origins of the Final Solution focuses on Nazi policy towards the Jews from September 1939-March 1942. Browning agrees with Hilberg and ads, that the combination of anti-Semitism with a power struggle among middle-level bureaucrats within the Nazi hierarchy caused immense pressure for an escalation of Nazi policy toward the Jews leading to the “Final Solution.” In addition to the seemingly endless debate, some historians argue about the timing of the “Final Solution” or the exact moment the Nazis made the decision. One of these historians is Professor Richard Breitman. Breitman teaches at Harvard University and also currently works as Director of Historical Research for the federally funded Nazi War Criminal Records Interagency Working Group. Breitman contends that it is crucial for the historian to accurately determine the chronology of events leading to the decision in order to narrow whatever disagreements exists over its causes and motivations.

Speer then reached his prominence of power when he was appointed Armaments Minister. Speer’s rise to prominence initially began with his joining of the Nazi Party in 1931.

I don't remember the names of the others. Upon our arrival in Belzec, we met Friedel Schwarz [sic] and the other SS men, whose names I cannot remember. They supervised the construction of barracks that would serve as a gas chamber. Wirth told us that in Belzec "all the Jews will be struck down." For this purpose barracks were built as gas chambers.
When and why did Auschwitz become the symbol of the Holocaust? Auschwitz became the site of Nazi Germany’s largest camp complex and extermination centre for European Jews and has represented the brutality of the National Socialist regime and its war crimes against humanity. Since its liberation in January 1945 by the Red army, it has undeniably become a symbol of the Holocaust. However, ‘the symbolic value of Auschwitz has not been a fixed sum, but has remained in flux and open to interpretation’, therefore the theses surrounding its symbolism must be discussed. Auschwitz has been labelled the ‘largest cemetery in the history of humanity’ and this essay will seek to explore why and when it became the predominant attribute of Holocaust History.
