In the beginning of the Holocaust, many people were sent to labor camps but died of infections or from working so much. There were about six large concentration camps that were used to kill the Jews upon entry into the camp. The Jews that weren’t immediately sent to concentration camps lived in Ghettos until they were sent to the extermination camps. Living in ghettos was terrible, considering the size of the area was condensed and many families had to live in one house together. Gas chambers were invented as a way to kill Jews and others quickly.
The people in the church were taken to a death camp where they were gassed and buried in mass graves. He and 150 people were taken to the Lodz, but then the ghetto population demanded to hand over the 10,000 children Arek managed to hide in a commentary. The remaining kids were also taken to the death camp and gassed. Arek was then accepted in the orphanage where he worked in the textile mill and was able to find food he stayed there for two years. In 1944 the Germans decided to clear up the Lodz ghetto completely because the Russian army was getting closer.
Third, wherever Germany in Eastern Europe, specialized units called Einsatzgruppen were created to murder Jews and political opponents in mass shootings. Finally, Jews and Romani were ordered to be live in overcrowded ghettos, there they were then transported by freight train to extermination camps. Extermination camps were camps that were built by Nazi Germany, during the World War II, that were designed to kill millions of people by gassing and extreme work under terrible living conditions. The Nazis were not alone in this effort. Parish churches and the Interior Ministry supported the genocide by presenting birth records showing who was Jewish; the Post Office delivered the deportation and denaturalization orders; the Finance Ministry took away Jewish property; German businesses fired Jewish workers and took away stock that belonged to the Jews.
Urges Zuckerman to start a partisan attack that would a) reconnaissance (scouting out the region to locate Germans) and b) obtaining weapons. 2,000 Nazis came into the Ghetto to stop the resistance, and miraculously the Jewish fighters held out for four weeks. Germans lit and blew up many buildings. Some managed to escape threw sewers or stay hidden in the rubble and remain hidden in buildings, but more or less everyone was killed. Why has the Warsaw Ghetto become such a potent symbol of the Holocaust?
Nazi Death Marches During WWII, Hitler ordered for all Jews to be taken to work camps, where they were forced to work in with little to no food. Most of the time the Jews would be making stuff for the German army such as, tools or clothing. The Jews had to have a strong spirit, or they would perish. But, towards the end of the war American troops invaded Germany, finding the work camps. Afraid of the American troops finding the work camps; Hitler ordered all work camps to be evacuated to death camps deep in Germany.
The Holocaust was one of the worst events to ever happen to mankind. It was started by the Fuhrer of Germany, Adolf Hitler, who thought that the Aryan race was superior to every other race. He had a massive hatred for the Jewish race and decided to try and exterminate every living Jewish person. He killed around two-thirds of all the European Jews (Byers 10). World War II was going on at the same time as the Holocaust.
Doctors would take corpses hair and gold teeth once they were out of the chambers. It was made clear in the document that this was just another day at the camp. Thesis: Both authors seemed to have a very similar approach to what they thought about the holocaust; it was extremely disturbing. Both authors do a great job at painting a clear picture about how terrible the German’s treated the Jewish people in concentration camps. The Doctors tells a specific terrifying story about how every day life was for people living in concentration camps.
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.
Also more persecution happened the next day as Jewish communities were asked to pay $1 million marks in reparations to what took place on that night . In 1940 the Warsaw Ghetto came into use which could hold 400,000 Jews and was the death to 500,000, this was used as a holding point for the Treblinka death camp, This was violent persecution as death occurred and Human rights were removed this is shown in the way that many Jews starved to death and were dehydrated they were offered less than 200 calories a day. Violent persecution can also be seen in the way the Nazis treated the Jews when they were in the Ghetto, The Jews were often beaten by the Nazis as it gave them a sense of satisfaction In 1942 the Wannsee conference took place where the final solution was devised and the construction of the death camps increased. This was extermination of the Jews as the sole purpose was to eradicate them, This is shown as the death toll increased since the Wannsee conference as well as the construction. This is seen in the August of 1942 where 6000 Jews died in Auschwitz to a previous 100 Jews in
