Gross Rosen concentration camp was a Nazi German network of Nazi concentration camps built and operated during the World War II.Most of the Jews came from Poland and Hungary. The prisoners were employed primarily as forced laborers in the construction of the camp. The Jewish prisoners of Gross Rosen were distributed among fifty sub camps. There were sixty thousand Jewish prisoners deported to Gross Rosen. The camp was originally established in the year 1940.
Transit camps was an occupied land almost like the Ghettos. But transit camps were where the people would stay before being deported to a concentration camp or straight off into the death row. Transit camps were worst then ghettos, everything was horrible there mostly the condition of the Nazi toward the victims of the Jews. In transit camps more than 70000 people were deported and some were sent to be killed in the East but some actually survived the
On the subject of this, the first experience of dehumanization Wiesel experienced was when he and his family were forced into wagons packed with other innocent jews and he says, “After two days of travel, thirst became intolerable, as did the heat” (Wiesel 23). For two days, eighty jews were packed together like sardines on train wagons with no food or water. This horrified me on how the Nazis treated them like prisoners guilty of crimes that justified their own actions against the Jews. The three stages of dehumanization, which is mental, physical, and emotional, were represented throughout the memoir. Mental dehumanization was the stage in which saddened me the most.
Night: Dehumanization “He was so terrible that he was no longer terrible. Only dehumanized” (F. Scott Fitzgerald). Jews were treated so badly that they began to act terribly but eventually they reached the point beyond repair and it was all due to dehumanization. The Holocaust took place in WW2, it was a horrific event that killed millions of Jews. Many Jews were taken from their homes and were killed, or were treated less than animals until death of starvation or exhaustion.
Women, children, the elderly, and people who could not work were killed immediately. Millions of innocent people died, and very few people did survive. In Night, Elie Wiesel shows that the relationships between father and son change dramatically due to the inhumanity of death
The Nazis will treat the Jews as if they were not real people this is an example of man inhumanity to man. The memoir Night by Elie Wiesel had many themes some were struggle to maintain faith, Nazi cruelty and man's inhumanity to man. The Holocaust has a big role in history and so many Jews had lost their life because one man hate them so much that he had to punish the Jews and made the Nazi army did many inhumane things to
One of the biggest mass deaths was during the run to another camp. Nearing the end of the run Elie observed, “Death hardly needed their help. The cold was conscientiously doing its work” (92). During their run the Gestapo would shoot and kill anyone who fell behind. But as Elie realized people would drop like flies due to thirst, hunger, and most of all, cold.
People endure hardships every day, but it is how they choose to react to them that is most important. One such hardship was the Holocaust, which was the murdering of millions of people at the Nazi concentration camps throughout the course of WWII. Eleven million Jews, homosexuals, and gypsies were killed during this genocide. Every survivor of these concentration camps was forced to decide between hiding or vocalizing the crimes they had seen committed, and many couldn’t find the strength to speak up. Thankfully, there were those such as Elie Wiesel, who didn’t rest.
Schindler’s List displays this by showing how the Jews were sent to forced labour camps such as the Plaszow. When they arrived to these labour and concentration camps, they were separated by gender as told “men to the left, women to the right”, this separated families causing more effective discomfort to the Jews. In the labour camps, many Jews were shot often resulting in death because they were not working to the satisfaction of the Nazis or SS officers who were in charge of that labour camp. If any Jews were seen as unhealthy they were sent to death camps. During this stage of the holocaust many Jews were
How could a person be so cruel to dozens of Jews and watch them die slowly? The Nazi soldiers had no mercy for the Jews even if they did nothing wrong to them. Lastly, the amount of suffering at Auschwitz and Buna was hard for me to read about. I couldn’t imagine how it felt to live in the conditions that the Jews had to live for years. Standing
The first concentration camps were set up for Polish prisoners and officials. The camps were labor camps where the detained would be forced to do grueling work with harsh, long hours. The first camps also housed many misfits including gypsies, roma and transgender people who the Nazi saw as weak, and intolerable. After the occupation of Poland in late 1939 the Nazi started capturing the Jews and putting them into the camps where they started to talk about the “Final Solution” or the end of all the Jews, and possibly of the whole world. The Nazi tried to hide this plan as much as possible, to not seem cruel when they actually were.
On year 1941, Buchenwald held a majority of 500 to 1,000 female prisoners. They arrived in 1944 to 1945. When Buchenwald concentration camp was evacuated they sent males to other camps. Many prisoners had died from that year of 1945. When females arrived, they had to train them over seers at the camp.
Shown through the Holocaust, concentration camps, and immigration, it was proven that Jews during World War II were some of the most harshly treated people of all time. The Holocaust is one of the most devastating events in human history as the Nazi’s killed millions. Most Jews were thrown into labor facilities known as Concentration camps, and it is shocking the amount of horrific happenings inside of these camps. For the ones that tried to escape Nazi occupation, the Jewish people had to hide and flee, however it was also a struggle to make it into another country. Throughout history there have been many terrible events and wars, however WWII proved to be one of the cruelest times there ever will be, and the Jews suffered the most during this time.
Inmates were broken after this relentless torture; we wonder why there wasn’t a mass revolt within the camps, and this is probably why, they had no will to resist oppression anymore. The sickest part of this all is that of the mass dehumanization played surprisingly by the entire people of Deutschland, now not all people played these sick game; most of the aggression was enforced by the German army. Moishe the Beadle was one of the first to experience this cruelty, “The Jews were ordered to get off... They were forced to dig huge trenches. ...
Buchenwald, which meant “The witch of Buchenwald” for her cruelty and brutality (Karl Otto Koch). Buchenwald was one of the most horrendous places during World War II. This camp held thousands of inmates, ranging from political prisoners to the Jews; The way the inmates were treated were horrible, from
