For me, this was very saddening, knowing that they were thinking that you couldn’t be treated any worse than that. If they only knew what was coming in the near future. As they were pulling into the station, the word “Auschwitz” was said. When I read that my heart dropped. Of the few things I knew about the Holocaust, I knew that Auschwitz was a place of death that few left.
The Holocaust is an evil many cannot forget, I recently seen a documentary of the holocaust. The events that took place during the holocaust were villainous in my opinion. The Nazis murdered millions of Jews, children, gypsies, homosexuals, Jehovah’s witnesses, disabled persons and anyone who appeared inferior, deemed useless or a detriment in the Nazis eyes. Nazis killed millions of people to turn Germany into a world power and create a ‘Master Race’. At the beginning of the holocaust outcasts were removed from their homes and banned from normal day to day society.
The infringements of this article are very clear in the book Night. People were brutally beaten, killed, forced to become slaves, burned, gassed, etc. all for nothing but the personal pleasure of the Nazi's. They treated Jews as if they were garbage; tossing their bodies to the side because they "don't matter". SS Officers only gave the prisoners one ration of bread and soup a day.
The Holocaust was one of the most inhumane eras for not only the Jews but also other groups such as the Russians. In 1933 the Nazis came into power and believed threat the Germans were superior to everyone else. They also believed that the Jews were far inferior to them and were a threat to their German Community. As a result the Nazis started to persecute the Jews by burning them; they were put into gas chambers. There were over six million Jews that were murdered during the Holocaust.
Holocaust When Hitler became ruler of Germany, he decided to make his country a dictatorship. This caused his people to listen to the propaganda he made up. Every Jew was executed and only could bring a bag of belongings, which they soon lost. They were all sent to concentration camps, where they were separated from their parents and siblings. Jews from all over the world were worked to death and/or starved to death; as a result, nearly six million Jewish people passed away, being thrown in ovens to burn the bodies or buried.
The Holocaust began after a Jewish youth from Germany shot a German diplomat living in Paris. Hitler then violently persecuted Jews, using the event as an excuse. The Holocaust began with Kristallnacht, when Nazi troopers destroyed Jewish-owned property in Germany. As a result of Kristallnacht, many Jews fled Europe and went overseas to places like the U.S.A. After Kristallnacht, Hitler ordered all Jews to be segregated into ghettos, which were living areas specifically for Jews. Hitler hoped the Jews would die of starvation or from disease as the ghettos had horrible conditions.
The Jewish culture was taken out of the society by taking them to concentration camp where they would be murdered. People knew about these camps all around the world, yet nobody stepped up tp do anything about it. Until the allied forces were successful in defeating Germany the concentration camps kept killing. I believe other cultures were practicing typical ethnocentrism as well. Most of the world were Christian and looked down on the Jews.
The amount of bodies began piling up so heavily that those who were not infected began just burning the bodies of the victims with no remorse just to get rid the possible infection they might still cause. Thousands and thousands of bodies were piled up and burned and those who were suspected of infection were dragged from their home in screams and cries and isolated until they faced death. Infants, children, adults were separated from their parents and thrown in ditches because those who were not infected were petrified of the disease they abandoned them on islands and ditches and left for
Camelia McCallum Mrs. Heiden SOPH CP LA 25 April 2011 Crucial Times of the Holocaust What man would create a breeding ground for extreme discrimination of his own people? Throughout the Second World War the chancellor of Germany allowed the brutal murderers of over six million Jewish German citizens. The killing of the innocent people took place in concentration camps in the span of a few years. Two infamous death camps were Auschwitz two Birkenau and Mauthausen. Even though Birkenau and Muahthausen had differences, they both are historically some of the worst concentration camps of the Holocaust.
The crimes committed during the Holocaust devastated most European Jewish communities and eliminated hundreds of Jewish communities in occupied eastern Europe entirely. The Holocaust must be remembered as a unique atrocity, distinct from any other. To compare the Holocaust with Hiroshima, for example, denies and hides the historic role of German and Christian anti-Semitism that lead to and helped Hitler's theories. Therefore, such a comparison shows that Americans are no worse than the Nazis, and that Hitler was no worse than Truman. So how could we forget about something so tragic?
