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.
This is an outrage to all of people in the world. Hitler causes total annihilation to the jewish race because of racism and hatred. Death camps come along. And jews in camps die from starvation and gas chambers. "Holocaust: Estimated Deaths of Jews and Gypsies."
The Holocaust is one of the most crucial un humane things of all time. Hitler , a guy who wanted to have a pure Aryan race, went to extreme measures to do that. He decided that all mentally ill, gypsies, Jews & non supporters of Nazism should be elimated from the German population. To do this , he created what is called a Concentration Camp. At a meeting in January 1941, it was decided that these people need to be eliminated !
Hitler deliberately expressed his hate toward Jews and gave ample warnings, as it was all written down in his autobiography “Mein Kampf”. In 1935, the introduction of the Nuremberg Laws stripped German Jews of their citizenship and civil rights. Jewish rights were steadily restricted, as in many cases Jewish political and intellectual leaders were the first to be sent to concentration camps. The Night of Broken Glass, on November 9, 1938 lead to the death of approximately 100 Jews, while other 30,000 were sent to concentration camps. Jewish businesses along with almost every synagogue in Germany were damaged or completely destroyed.
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.
In 1933, the Jewish population of Europe stood at over nine million. Most European Jews lived in countries that Nazi Germany would occupy or influence during World War II. By 1945, the Germans and their collaborators killed nearly two out of every three European Jews as part of the "Final Solution," the Nazi policy to murder the Jews of Europe. During the era of the Holocaust, German authorities also targeted
Soon they were required to wear the Star of David on their clothing to identify their race and were forced out of public schools. Eventually they were given food rations and forced to live in Ghettos. A Ghetto was an enclosed city district where the Germans relocated the Jewish people to separate them from the non-Jewish ("Holocaust Encyclopedia"). They were forced to live in horrible conditions where personal space no longer existed and food was scarce. The largest ghetto in Poland was the Warsaw ghetto, where more than 400,000 Jews were crowded into an area of 1.3 square miles ("Holocaust Encyclopedia").
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.
The Warsaw Ghetto Uprising Preceding World War II, the Nazi party in Germany rose to power and, under Adolf Hitler, committed the largest genocide the world has ever seen: the Holocaust. The ideology of the Nazi party led to the discrimination and extremely harsh persecution of the Jewish people, as well as many others who did not seem fit for the perfect German race. Jews, as well as the handicapped, homosexual, disabled, and so on, were sent to concentration camps where they were forced to perform manual labor and then killed. However, before the Nazis sent the Jews to concentration camps, they set up ghettos throughout German-controlled territory in Europe. The largest of these ghettos was the Warsaw Ghetto, located in Poland.
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”.
