The campaign began with German Jews having their rights taken away, and ended with the death of six million Jews. This attempt to annihilate the Jewish population from Europe is seen as the biggest act of genocide in the world. In January 1945 before the Soviets arrived at Auschwitz, the SS marched 60,000 prisoners 36 miles away. This last march being Germany’s last attempt to exterminate the Jewish
Nicolas Miedema 05/04/12 Mr. Carunchia U.S. History Auschwitz WWII has probably been the greatest event one the world. It was a war between the axis power and the allied power. The greatest protagonist in this war was Germany, the one who started the war and in charge of the death of approximately 6 million Jews (mtsu.edu). This massacre is worldwide known as the HOLOCAUST. They send the Jews to concentration camps to torture or kill them.
Jews, Hitler, the Nazi party and other German’s were involved in the holocaust. The Nazi’s decided that the Jewish race needed to be exterminated for no other reason than their ancestry and chosen religion. It first started of with discrimination; then the Jews were separated from their communities and persecuted. During the Second World War the Nazi’s were planning on killing the entire Jewish population. Of the nine million Jews who had lived in Europe at the time before the Holocaust, approximately two-thirds were perished.
The Holocaust During WWII, the single, most aggressive act towards a race of people occurred, the Holocaust. The Holocaust refers to the period from January 30, 1933 - when Adolf Hitler became chancellor of Germany - to May 8, 1945, when the war in Europe officially ended. During this time, Jews in Europe were subjected to progressively harsher persecution that ultimately led to the murder of 6,000,000 Jews and the destruction of 5,000 Jewish communities. The Jews who died were not casualties of the fighting that ravaged Europe during World War II. Rather, they were the victims of Germany's deliberate and systematic attempt to annihilate the entire Jewish population of Europe, a plan Hitler called the “Final Solution”.
Concentration Camps In the early 1940s, probably was the most brutal events ever committed toward people in our world’s history. It was World War II. The Nazi led by Adolf Hitler, was waging war across Europe. Poland became the place where those prisoners and captives held by the Nazis were sent to be eliminated. From 1941 through 1945 a total of some 3.5 million Jews were killed in Nazi extermination camps.
“Genocide is the systematic and purposeful destruction of a racial or cultural group. During WWII about 6 million Jews were killed the other 5million were homosexuals, gypsies, and etc. The elements that lead to the Holocaust were totalitarism combined with nationalism, the history of anti- Semitism, Hitler’s belief in the master race, and the Final Solution. Totalitarism centralized control by an autocratic authority and political
If a jew tried to escape, they would just get shot. The Nazis were instructed by hitler to have no mercy or feelings towards the jews. During the invasion of Poland, they captured half the jews living there and instantly shot the other half of the jews in Poland. Since Poland was close to germany, they invaded them. And also invaded them because of the jewish people .
Hitler had already convinced Germany that Jews were a disgrace. He started the extermination by taking over Poland, a country with over three million Jews. Then, he continued taking over Belgium, Luxemburg, France, and Holland, placing every single Jew under Nazis control. Hitler and his people did not know what to do with the millions of Jews, so he proposed, and executed, the Final Solution. This means, kill them all!
The author presents the causes of the massacre against the Jewish residents in Jedwabne by the neighbors who were non-Jews. In narrating the causes of the Jedwabne Jewish massacres, Gross takes two approaches that explore the ethnic identity categories that persisted at the time of holocaust and the role of individual choices. In early 1939 in the Jedwabne town, a few kilometers from the historical province of Mazowsze, the police arrested and detained fifteen people. The names of the detainees were recorded in a liquidated report commonly referred to as the control-investigative files. These files were maintained by the police in a bid to track the progress of their investigations regarding various cases.
Ashley Vargas April 28, 2011 Mr. Whitehead Global 10 Jewish Dehumanization The Holocaust is a controversial topic still all these years later. Adolf Hitler with help of his Nazi party systematically dehumanized Jews leading up to and during the Holocaust. First, they moved them all together then humiliated them. Moving Jews into ghettos and then making them work like animal in concentration camps were two ways in which Hitler slowly but gradually dehumanized Jews. Before the holocaust even started, Hitler was already degrading Jews.
