Surviving the strict Nazis and traumatizing death camps depended purely on one’s good luck or one’s strategic knowledge. As for Anja and Vladek, one might find that they’re success is due to 3 components: their placement in society, their skill in bribing/making deals, and their ability to think before action. Placement within society was a major contributor in the end result of a Jew’s life; therefore, Anja and Vladek began their treacherous journey with an advantage. Of course, when Nazis began slowly taking everything away from Jews,
The process in which the Jews were rounded up concentrated, enslaved and eventually murdered was cruel and disgusting. After a Jewish person had spent a certain amount of time in slave work they were sent to death camps. A factory process of murder was something no one could fathom, being placed in an assembly line manor through a process that, in the end would terminate your life. This was something that the German government decided was best, to be a Jew and know that the government that runs the state you’re in by default or by occupation, has decided you are worthless and needed to be exterminated is not moral. To hate a person or people so much that murdering them in cold blood by the bulk, just seems morally right is genocide.
The Holocaust The Holocaust happen when Adolf Hitler took over the government in Germany. Adolf Hitler turned the country against Jews, he believed that Aryans ( tall, blond, blue-eyed, and usually from german descent) were the superior race of humans (Byers 14). Most Jews were not Aryan, they usually had brown hair, brown eyes and short. He saw them as vermin and the cause of The Great Depression, occurring at the time, this would later led to his “ Final Solution” that would end the Jewish race and culture. He thought that if he moved the Jews and concentrated them into one spot then it would solve his problem.
It started out with a couple hundred members then grew to a couple hundred thousand. Hitler now had his own personal army to do his dirty work. The Nazis tortured terrorized dehumanized and killed the Jewish people during the holocaust. The Jews were terrorized and dehumanized by being sent to concentration camps by the Nazis.
They orchestrated the majority of the Holocaust; the solution to the “Jewish question” as it was called by German forces (USHMM: SS and the Holocaust). The SS were known for their harsh, merciless brutality toward the prisoners in concentration camps and often abused them simply for their own personal enjoyment. The SS are covered extensively in the memoir Night by Elie Wiesel and other accounts of the Holocaust, and their acts can be divided into categories; including their rise to and fall from power, key figures in the establishment of the SS, and the treatment of prisoners at concentration camps. One category with major significance is the Nazis’ rise to and fall from power. The Nazis rose to governmental power through a long, thought-out series of actions that turned Hitler’s leadership into a dictatorship and started the Holocaust and World War II.
Jews, Hitler, the Nazi party and other German’s were involved in the holocaust. The Nazi’s decided that the Jewish race needed to be exterminated for no other reason than their ancestry and chosen religion. It first started of with discrimination; then the Jews were separated from their communities and persecuted. During the Second World War the Nazi’s were planning on killing the entire Jewish population. Of the nine million Jews who had lived in Europe at the time before the Holocaust, approximately two-thirds were perished.
In 1919, Hitler had written that systematic legitimate opposition can only be done through sensible anti Semitism (The Holocaust, n.d). He blamed Jews for the defeat in war and also asserted that Jews stabbed us in the back just to seize power and control German people. Hitler also declared that Jews wanted to undermine the Aryan Race through communism and capitalism. In his book Mein Kampf, (My Struggle) he further extended this hatred for Jews when he said that Jews are an evil race who wants to dominate the world. Nazi policy treated Jews as “parasitic vermin” who are only worthy of eradication.
Fabian Armendariz Mr. Rodriguez English 3B Jun 7, 2012 How much did the Jews suffered during the Holocaust? The holocaust was one of the most horrifying events that had happened during the 20th century. After WWI ended Adolf Hitler became chancellor of Germany.

Adolf Hitler and the Holocaust Adolf Hitler was one of the cruelest rulers this world has ever known. During his reign Hitler caused enormous suffering for the Jews throughout Germany. Many Jewish families were torn apart by the cruelty of the Nazi party. This, one of the most tragic events in the world's history, is known as the Holocaust.
