Auschwitz Concentration Camp The Nazis thought concentration camps were a good way to detain individuals, one of the largest and most outrageous concentration camps was known as Auschwitz, millions of people died and few survived. Auschwitz had three major death camps, Auschwitz I was where medical and chemical experiments were done. Poland’s first and largest concentration camp, established in 1940 by SS authorities was known as Auschwitz. It was a detention center used by the Nazi Regimes as a way to keep political prisoners, suspected enemies and others not supportive of Nazi Germany together. People sent to Auschwitz were used as forced laborers for the war and other jobs.
Hardly Human About 200,000 people that passed through the Auschwitz death camp during the Holocaust managed to survive. However, that number pales in comparison to the 2.1 to 4 million people slaughtered in that very same camp. Elie Wiesel, the author of Night, became one of the seemingly lucky survivors of this horrifying genocide. In this novel, Elie describes the agony he went through while going from one concentration camp to the next attempting to escape death. During the Holocaust, the Nazi’s treated their prisoners as vermin that they needed to immediately dispose of.
An evil disgusting dictator named Adolf Hitler built concentration camps and tortured and killed millions and millions of innocent people including men, women, and children. Jewish People were told that they would be living in a better place. But it was the opposite. In concentration camps, Jewish people were kept in small crowded cells filled with strangers and very little room for sleep and privacy.
The paradox of being half ugly is shown all throughout Hitler 's actions. In WWII the entire Jewish population was the target for Hitler and his Nazis party. This led to millions of jews being persecuted and killed. One example of the ugliness of the war would be the discrimination and the hatred of other races. While in power Hitler created concentration camps to contain Jews and people not of German background.
Jack Serra Mrs. Breig English 9H 25 March 2017 The Atrocities of Life Inside a Concentration Camp On January 30th of 1933, the Chancellor and Fuhrer of Germany Adolf Hitler commenced mass genocide against the Jewish people. Following WWI, Hitler aimed to eradicate the Jews from Germany. Jewish people were herded into large concentration camps run by Hitler’s Army known as the Nazis. These concentration camps were basically death camps. Living in a concentration camp was one of the worst things one could imagine, for it wasn’t really living at all, but merely existing.
For example, the red triangle identified political prisoners, pink triangle identified the homosexuals, green triangle identified the criminals, blue triangle identified the foreign prisoners, etc. Approximately 100.000 (Jewish Virtual Library) prisoners died of starvation, disease, forced labor, maltreatment or systematic execution by the SS guards in the area of the execution trench. Many prisoners were also selected for the now infamous Nazi medical experimentations which took place in the infirmary barracks of the camp. When the Soviets reached the Oder River, the commandant of Sachsenhausen ordered the immediate evacuation of the camp. Thousands of prisoners died on the forced "death march" as a result of the freezing weather, weak health and starvation.
In 1937 hundreds of thousands of people were brought into the notorious Nazi concentration camp Buchenwald, where thousands of families were torn apart. Buchenwald was one of the many Nazi concentration camps where Jews and others were brought to work and die. The camp was run by KarlOtto Koch, who ran the camp from 1937 to July of 1941. The next commandant was his second wife, Ilse Koch, who became notorious as Die Hexe von 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.
Buchenwald was a labor camp. It was not an extermination camp like Auschwitz. The Nazis tried to kill as many of the Jews as possible. The prisoners would either work in a stone quarry, or armaments factory until they died from exhaustion or hunger. Many prisoners were beaten to death, or died from hunger and exhaustion.
World War two was an awful time for everyone. People died and went through tough times.One place that was also awful and where millions of Jews were killed was concentration camps.Concentration camps first came around after Hitler was elected as Chancellor. In the camps there wasn 't a lot of food or water so people, mostly died of starvation and dehydration. The Germans established 20,000 camps to imprison Jews.In this research paper I will give you information about concentration camps in ww2. At first concentration camps were used to imprison political opponents of the Nazis.
Because of the environment of the camps, a countless number of Jews died every day. The conditions while working in camps made resistance strenuous, yet the Jews still desired to disobey. Since a large amount of Jews resisted at work, the Nazis punished those who never meant to cause any harm. Resistance came in many forms during the Holocaust, whether it was organized
