The specific number of victims murdered in "Operation Euthanasia" is not known, but it is believed to be somewhere between 71,088 to over 100,000. In so-called "Euthanasia Operations,” Nazis murdered patients with psychiatric or hereditary diseases in large numbers. Psychiatric patients in Germany were sent to six institutions, where they were deprived of their lives in gas chambers. In his plan delivered on 3rd August, 1941, at St Lambert's Church in Münster, Bishop von Galen of Münster intensely condemned this cruel operation in public. Quoting the fifth commandment, "Thou shall not kill", he said it was sinful to kill innocent people on account of their unproductiveness.
Life Inside the Gates Between the years nineteen thirty-three to nineteen forty-five during World War II, during the Holocaust, a man named Adolf Hitler had taken power in Germany. He had begun the extermination of any Jewish person, or anyone who was against Hitler's actions. To exterminate Jewish people there were many concentration camps that were built and used. These camps are made up of solid concrete walls, large gates, and one purpose, to keep whoever or whatever goes in and make sure they never come out. While many people felt well informed about Nazi concentration camps, most do not truly understand the inner workings of the camps.
The people were sent from a forced labor camp to a death camp when they became old or when they were weak to be killed. Some were also tested for experiments that tested medical things, such as diseases and cures. About 1 million people were killed at Auschwitz during World War II. There were total of 20,000 concentration camps were they had only one goal and that was to kill Jews and any other race they didn’t like. Nazis killed total of eleven million people and six million were Jews.
There were six extermination camps: Chelmo, Belzec, Sobibor, Treblinka, Auschwitz and Majdanek. Most prisoners of the extermination camps were told to undress for a shower but then were moved to the gas chambers and killed. Jews resisted the Germans for 27 days using homemade bombs and stolen or bartered weapons. This did not stop the Germans but gave hope to the Jews that one day the sufferings will
The video explained that Jews were denied rights from 1933-1939 before the war broke out. After the video was over he added that Germany took 5000 people a day on a box cart by train to different camps. He said some would escape and warn others what was really happening how they were being killed by gas. Also explained how transportation of the train rides would take 5 days for a trip that should take 2 hours but they were hoping people would die just from being on the train so long. The Jewish people were required to wear the Jewish star or Star of David on them at all times.
Extermination Camps Death Camps or also known as Extermination Camps were run and ruled by the Nazi’s in World War II. Theses camps were built and designed by hitler him self, in Germany during 1939 to 1945 to kill millions of innocent people (wikipedia,13 March 2015). The Holocaust was the systematic annihilation of six million Jews during the Nazi genocide - in 1933 nine million Jews lived in the 21 countries of Europe that would be occupied by Nazi Germany during World War 2. By 1945 two out of every three European Jews had been killed. Nazi party were trying to kill off all the jews and people that was not up to hitlers standards of a perfect human and this is also known as genocide.Genocide is the systematic killing of all racial,
Ghettos were also formed to monitor the Jewish population, which were enclosed city districts which the Germans concentrated the Jews. On May 7, 1945 the German armed forces surrendered to the Allies. The next day was the official end of the war, also called V-E Day. Many of the survivors of the Holocaust, who were left with nothing, went to displaced persons camps set up by the Allied powers. “The crimes committed during the Holocaust devastated most European Jewish communities and eliminated hundreds of Jewish communities in occupied eastern Europe entirely.” (United States Holocaust Memorial Museum) There have been several attempts to measure the effects of the Holocaust.
“The killing of some six million Jews by the Nazis during WWII. To the Nazis, the holocaust was the ‘Final Solution’ to the ‘Jewish Problem,’ and would help them establish a pure German master race. Much of the killing took place in concentration camps, such as Auschwitz and Dachau. The ‘holocaust’, a term applied by the Nazis to the genocide of European Jews during WWII. Before instituting the Final Solution, the Nazi government had abolished Jews’ rights destroyed and confiscated their property, and confined them in concentration camps.” (The New Dictionary of Cultural Literacy).
Jake Mendala 10/17/2011 Post WW2 History Auschwitz 5 Point Essay The book Auschwitz, written by Dr. Miklos Nyiszli, takes place during the Nazi occupation of Hungry. Any “enemy” to the Third Reich was deported to one of their concentration camps. Dr. Nyiszli was one of the unlucky ones to be sent to the biggest concentration camp, or other known as death camps, of Auschwitz. There are five key points that the author makes clear through the first two thirds of the book. Dr. Nyiszli wanted to make it clear that the Nazis were willing to kill men, women, and children not only because there intense hatred for Jews but also for research that was conducted through dissecting the human corpses.
And in this instance, a valuable was a healthy person - so the Germans would work the prisoners until they had no more energy to produce and then kill them. In effect, that had millions of slaves being forced to work to death to help the Germans in their war efforts. This atrocity continued to the end of the war - with liberation not happening until July 1944 and later. In July 1944, the Soviet Union liberatated Maidanek concentration camp and then in January 1945 - Auschwitz concentration camp and so on until Nazi Germany was totally defeated and all peoples were freed. All told, there were only about 200,000 Jewish survivors by the end of the liberation and the death counts from the holocaust were estimated to be around 6 million Jews and millions of other people who did not fit the Aryan
