And also invaded them because of the jewish people . When jews died, Hitler used creamatoriums to get rid of the dead bodies quickly. Creamatoriums are normally used for dead bodies and to have the dead persons ashes in memory of them. Hitler used these differently to get rid of jewish bodies. Most slave workers were creamated in these creamatoriums when they died of starvation.
A crematory is a machine which cremation takes place. Cremation is the reduction of dead bodies by burning them. During the holocaust there were times that many thought it started to snow but actually it was the ashes of the burning bodies. The Germans also threw little kids alive; they would grab them by the arm and threw them into the ovens. To cover many of this atrocities some camps made the Jews to work on sand mines to hide all the evidence.
The rest of them were sent either to the gas chambers or to the ovens. Some of this ones that survived were the ones that would take the corpses from the chambers to the crematory and they had to burn them. These prisoners were in a unit that was called sonderkommando. When burning the corpses there was not only one burned at a time they would stack a bunch of them and burn them all together. In1944, there was an overpopulation in Auschwitz because there was a Hungarian group that was going to be exterminated because they were considered as Jews by the Nazis.
So it wasn’t the easiest thing to do in the middle of December when it’s snowing and below freezing. What went on inside the camp was horrible they stole from the Jews and they ripped out their gold teeth but the thing that was the worst was what they did to the twin children. See they would test the twins by injecting them with drugs and putting them in high-pressure chambers. After they ran out of room, they put the Jews in a crematorium. The Nazis started burning all the Jews on open fire
The Mind of a Prisoner by Wyatt Smith Senior English, 03 John Carroll School, Bel Air 3-35-09 Outline Thesis: The Holocaust was a psychological test on the Jewish race that forced them to overcome both physical and mental agony that the rest of the world sees as totally inhumane. I. In Both Night and Man’s Search for Meaning, the Nazi’s took over the Jews and set out to exterminate the entire race. A. The Nazis entered the towns of the Jewish people, acted very friendly but soon after removed all of the people.
Due to David Olére witnesses and being involved in the extermination, the images painted by him would have been what he had witnessed and experienced at the time. Source B gives us an idea of the horror and misery the Jews who were being gassed went through and an idea of what it would of looked like to see the remains of the dead bodies after they were all murdered. In the corner of Source B you can see a container labeled Zyklon B, this gives the viewer an idea into what extermination phase they were going through at the time that David Olére was there. In sources A, C, and D, it gives us an idea of what horrible jobs the Jews were given at the concentration camps. This can be extremely useful to a historian.
Gas chambers are a particular sticking point: Holocaust deniers say they were purely a rumor or, if they indeed existed, were not powerful enough to kill — though evidence and history indicate otherwise. And the photographs of emaciated and dying Jews? Attorney Edgar J. Steele, a revisionist, says, "All those pictures of skinny people and bodies stacked like cordwood were actually of Czechs and Poles and Germans [who] died of typhus, which was rampant in the
Genocide in definition "is the mass killing of a group of people", (Article 2 of the CPPCG). Throughout time and around the world there have been examples of genocide. The Bosnia genocide seen in former Yugoslavia, the Rwanda genocide, or the Darfur conflict which started in 2003 have shown the world just how prejudice can lead people to take part in "ethnic cleansing". Although such humanitarian crimes have been seen around the world the most massive and known acts of genocide has been seen in the Holocaust, a program of deliberate extermination of Jews along with other groups that lead to the killing of approximately six million Jews during World War II. The persecution and acts of genocide were accomplished by the National Socialist Regime,
the readers that after the concentration camps were liberated; photographers and cinematographers took pictures and shot videos of the hundreds of dead, skeletal bodies. Some of the revisionists say that the pictures were fake and that it doesn’t mean that these people were necessarily ‘gassed’ or starved to their death. One other story of the many Gottfried mentions in the text is The Mermelstein Case (Gottfried 47). The IHR would reward $50,000 to anybody who could prove that the Nazi’s used gas chambers to exterminate Jews during World War II. Mel Mermelstein mailed in a letter to the IHR about his provided a very detailed description of this time at Auschwitz and all of his observations and surroundings.
Whereas others were taken to Ghettos. The Jews were killed in many horrific ways, with the gas chamber being the most ‘quick’ and ‘efficient’ way of killing the Jews. This links us on too ‘’Boy in the striped pyjamas’’ and ‘’life is beautiful’’ as both of them have death camps in Poland, whereas the pianist had ghettos instead. This is where Jews were taken after the German invasion of Poland. The war made it impossible for Hitler to get rid of the Jews so the Jews were trapped under the Nazi rule.
