The Holocaust museums takes the viewer into the life of a Jew during these darker times. Adolph Hitler is probably one of the worst people ever to live. When people talk of evil deeds he is at the top of the list. He was a man of words, and could use them to his advantage. He had an ability to talk and make the Germans believe that the Jews were the reason for the problems in their country; so he gave them the idea to move
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. The origin of the Nazi group was Hitler’s opinion that the German people and the entire world needed a solution to the so-called “Jewish question”; which he preached to young German men everywhere. His belief was that there was need for a pure and elite race, specifically the Aryan race, and he would go to extraordinary lengths in
As we have watched the movie about the Holocaust in class all the images that I witnessed came back, I saw the gates with the in craving of "Work will set you free", the gas showers, and the gethos. What influences me the most is to see piles of reading glasses, pilles of shoes, pilles of hair. Each item used to belong to someone that got murdered brutally. The Nazis were very organized and calculated, they did not wanted to waist anything. Weapons and bullets were too expensive and took too much time, so they arranged even larger massacred at the gas showers, and later the ovens that did the job even easier.
They attempted to kill all of the Jewish people. This is called genocide. Genocide is when a certain person or group (Nazis) tries to exterminate an entire race or ethnic group. They wanted to do this because the Nazis thought that the Jews were inferior, and they saw them as a threat to Hitler’s rain of terror. At this time there were 9 million Jews in Europe.
Adolf Eichmann was head of Jewish affairs, and was responsible for the deportation of nearly 1.5 million Jews to death camps located across all of Europe. Similar to Mengele, Eichmann fled to Argentina after World War II to escape war crimes that he had committed. After he was found guilt for the cause of several casualties, he was hung and cremated.

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.
There were approximately nine million Jews that lived in the twenty one countries that Germany would eventually occupy during World War II. Sadly, two out of every three Jews were killed from 1933 to 1945 (Chitnis). People who followed Hitler and worked under him were known as Nazis. While Hitler and the Nazis were in control, Germany lived in a constant state of fear and distrust. This made it easier for Nazis to gain control of every business and organization in Germany.
We then all walked into a room with glass walls. The room had the voices of Auschwitz survivors as they recount the haunting experiences, the room had several books of the statements given by their personal accounts of the Holocaust. While this all affected me one of the displays that was the most moving and touching was the case full of prisoners’ shoes. There was just so many and how the cases were large in size. It was very hard for us to
His belief was off and on through out the book. At one point he will be all out for his religion, but at other times he barley follows it at all. “I looked at our house, where I had spent so many years in search for my God,”(28) this was right before they were getting ready to be deported. After he got to the concentration camp, he got a sense of disbelief. From seeing and smelling all of the burning flesh of people.
These brutal actions led Elie and many of the other Jewish people to undergo drastic changes. The theme of dehumanization is strongly demonstrated throughout the novel Night. With no remorse at all the Nazis employed numerous techniques of dehumanizing their captives. The Jews were forced to endure treacherous conditions. Then even while they were weak, Elie states: “Lying down was out of the question…after two days of traveling, we began to be tortured by thirst.” (Wiesel 21).
