“Why dwell upon the study of the Holocaust when history is loaded with other tragedies? Because the Holocaust was unique. This is not to say that other tragedies were less horrible, only that the Holocaust was different and should not be compared and trivialized,” the author noted (Tarnor Wacks 9). A mere 71 years ago a defining feature of world history took place, in concentration camps across Eastern and Western Europe. 6 million Jews were ripped out of their homes and ultimately murdered. It is imperative that we remember the Holocaust because the magnitude of this tragedy is astronomical and shouldn’t be forgotten.
It is estimated around 6 million Jews died during the Holocaust, each death leaving a scar on modern history, each death showing the monsters we all can be to our own people, or just revealing the monsters we truly are. Harsh changes were put on the Jews from the loss of basic human rights like freedom to the loss of lives. This inhumane treatment was done by their own kind, no sympathy, no empathy,
Many people do not think of the Holocaust as 12 appalling years full of unforgettable tragedies. The Holocaust is not normally spoken about every day, but the amount of pain and terror during those eventful years should not be abandoned. The Jews were always referred to as animals and not as human beings. Germans used many forms of dehumanization and neglect. If it was not labor and abuse the other alternative was the crematorium. Not only were Jews treated with such disrespect, but many of them were sent to the ovens to get burnt. The ovens were a place where Jews were forced to suffer through a slow and agonizing death.
However, there is a theory that the horrific events commonly called the Holocaust is a hoax concocted by the Jews for the purpose of profiting off of museums, books, and movies that portray the events; that six million deaths are an exaggerated number, and that the events didn’t actually happen the way the world was told. The theory goes on to say that the concentration camps existed, but also that the Jews were not killed for the sake of wiping out their entire ethnic group, or that their suffering was as great as history claims. While the Holocaust may not have been a hoax concocted by the Jews for the sake of profit, evidence suggests that the events, as they were presented to us, are not the exact account of what took place during World War
Since elementary school, teachers have planned lesions to teach their students about the Holocaust in an age appropriate way. Stories from the Holocaust have been documented and told over and over again so people are aware of the horrific events. The Holocaust and other stories about Genocides will never be forgotten and will be continued being told to young students to raise awareness. From learning about these events in school, these stories can be honored, warnings are brought to student’s attention, and now students can take part in preventing these horrible acts.
The holocaust caused a lot of trauma, for many people and races, and is still affecting people and their families today. With all the terrible burning, freezing, injections, and surgeries, it 's hard to realize that things like that actually happened. To today’s standards, all of the things that they did during World War II would be considered illegal in most countries. Especially under most cruel and unusual laws, if any of this were to happen in the United
The Holocaust is something that should not happen again, and would be devastating if another event like it happens again but there is mass killing all over the world, so the potential for another big event like it happening is very possible. Humans are capable of terrible things, and some would be ok with following with what Hitler did but next time, it will be someone else targeted, and they may not
Did you know that eleven million people died in the holocaust? Six million of those people were Jews. The Jews were captured and taken to concentration camps because the Nazis simply hated them. Concentration camps were made to kill off all of the Jews. They did this because they saw them as a problem to Germany.
"Do you know why most survivors of the Holocaust are vegan? It's because they know what it's like to be treated like an animal,” as said by Chuck Palahniuk, the man himself. The term Holocaust has been studied by many different sceintists for over 30 years and The holocaust was a very murderous event killing over 11 million people. The man who lead the very murderous event was Adolf Hitler. In some schools, the teachers try not to even bring up the holocaust because they try to forget about it.
All in all, people who learned from Elie Wiesel’s Memoir should teach others of what happened. They should let them know of the Holocaust, so they will not repeat it again. Let people know that “Silence is golden” does not apply
Imagine being torn from your home, forced into camps, discriminated against to the extreme, separated from your family, and possibly even killed just because of your religious beliefs.

She should receive the Holocaust Medal of Honour.

They are referred to as “sub-human, while the Nazis referred to Jews as vermin” (Source B). Source D discusses that the terrible things in the world are what encourages people to stand up for what they
Should the holocaust be taught in schools today? That question has been in the minds of parents, school officials, and teachers for some time now. Many believe it should be taught, while others say it shouldn’t. The holocaust is the term used for the Murder of Jews since 1993.
