A cold war between the United Stated and the Soviet Union began in the result of the War. Wars would follow this one called “surrogate wars.” World War II lasted for 12 years. Hitler had built countless camps where 11 million people were murdered. 6 million of those were Jews. The Jewish population was cut down so much.
In the camps more than one million people died during World War II, other sources say 1.1 million died in Auschwitz. There are many reasons of death caused by the Nazis in Auschwitz such as in the gas chambers, the Nazis use Zyklon-B as a way to murder the Non-Aryans, once they were murdered they were put into a crematorium which was used to burn the bodies. If the Jews or Non-Aryans disrespected or did not follow the Nazi’s commands they were either shot or hanged if the non-Aryans were not fed enough they either starved to death or got sick and died. One source said 2.1 to 2.5 million Non-Aryans died in the gas chambers. On January 27, 1945, the Soviet army entered Krakow and liberated the Auschwitz Death Camps.
Around 90% of those killed were Jews. Others sent to Auschwitz included 150,000 Poles, 23,000 Romani and Sinti, 15,000 Soviet prisoners of war, 400 Jehovah's witnesses, and tens of thousand of others of diverse nationalities. Many not killed in the gas chambers died of starvation,
They would mow down row upon row of shivering, half naked adults, and smash the heads of babies with a show of pity or remorse(Wistrich). The psychological effect on those who lived during the Holocaust are beyond any superficial description. Hitler mainly targeted the Jewish population because he defined Jews as a race not a religion. For the period of 12 years million of Jews lived under the Nazi power and it persecution towards them. They held the highest population in all and every camp.
The Nazi’s and the swatzika are very bad things. The Nazi’s killed over six million Jewish men, women, and children and 60 million people died in World War II which lasted for six years. Adolph Hitler was voted in as German Chancellor in 1933. He then created the Nazi party with its Swastika as a symbol for the Nazi party meaning racial purity. 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.
Did you know that more than 6 million jews were killed in the holocaust yes I am amazed as well by that. 1 of 6 people that were killed in the holocaust were jewish. There were more than 7.2 million people killed in the holocaust. Some people didn 't even make it to Auschwitz they died on the train or in the trucks they were brought
Before the concentration camps, they were held in ghettos. Some people even come straight from being transferred out of their homes (Steele 37). Concentration camps were death camps for women and children. For men, the camp was forced labor and starvation (Steele 37). To exterminate the women and children they had several gas chambers (Concentration).
During the Holocaust millions of people were killed by the Nazis because they were not the ideal race. The Nuremberg Trials were held in Nuremberg, Germany. The judges of the trials were from Great Britain, the Soviet Union, the United States, and France. These trials were held to bring justice to all the lives lost during World War two. After the Holocaust, the Nuremberg Trials were held to bring justice to Nazi officials, Industrialists, but failed to punish those who escaped.
Over 11 million innocent people were murdered in the Holocaust. Who was responsible for all of this? Hitler. Adolf Hitler, the leader of Nazi Germany and the cause of the Holocaust. He and his men killed millions including Jews, Gypsies, the disabled, and many more.
The Holocaust was a genocide in Germany of all European Jews and ‘undesirables’, led by Adolf Hitler; he managed to kill 6 million jews using concentration camps and systematic killing. In the concentration camps, the Jews were forced to do labour work in factories to manufacture goods for the war; conditions were terrible, as Jewish individuals were not treated well physically and psychologically. Previous knowledge and impressions of mine, regarding the Holocaust, came from classroom discussions, reading textbooks, and by doing assignments. Therefore, the film depicted how truly horrific the Holocaust was, as it ruined the lives of innocent individuals, due to a factor of their lives which they could not control; can not decide to be Jewish,
