The Holocaust was the massacre of 11 millions people by the Nazis, six millions of them were Jews. The original meaning of “holocaust” in Greek is “sacrifice by fire,” so the Nazis planned massacre of the Jews. The Hebrew word "Shoah," which means "misery, destroy, or waste," is also used for mass murder. The Nazis used "the Final Solution" to mention their plan of murdering Jewish people. After Nazi conquered Germany in 1933, they believed Germans were better than they were.
In addition to fighting with the Muslims, passing Christian armies often massacred and sacked entire Jewish communities without any provocation. This meant that Jews as well as Muslims had good reason to detest Christians, and may be the one of the roots of the tensions between the religions to this day. In addition to this, the Pope’s power and role changed over the course of the Crusades. The first Crusade was largely
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.
There have been many different "witch hunts" that have happened since 1692, that have shaped our world. One of the most known is The Holocaust that happened during WWII. This is important because a large mass of innocent people were killed due to their race. Some may say it was just a part of war; however, it's much more than that. It’s the fact that one person didn’t like a certain group of people besides their own so; they felt like they had the right to take away their lives.
He grew up in Vienna, where the mayor was drastically anti semitic. In Vienna, the hatred for jews was widespread. That really did something to make him get more violent. Hitler was not very educated as a little boy. In church, they preached that jews were responsible for all the problems in Germany, and everywhere.
The Holocaust was an execution of 8 million Europeans, and “ 6 million of the Europeans killed were Jewish women, children, and men that were brutally murdered” (Strahinich 7). It “was a catastrophe in our modern history” (Strahinich 7) now staining our history pages with hundreds of innocent people’s blood, forever lost in the grounds of the Holocaust. It took “place in Poland, Lithuania, Belarus, Latvia, and Czechoslovakia” (Altman 9) is some of the places where hundreds died. Thanks to “Adolf Hitler” (Strahinich 8) and “the Nazis government” (Strahinich 10), they “plunged most of Europe” (Allen 7) into turmoil, taking lives that did not need to go. The Holocaust is a time in history when millions of people were persecuted in Europe by being sent to live in ghettos and eventually being deported to concentration camps where they were systematically annihilated until the Allied forces liberated the remaining survivors.
From seizing property and business, through sterilization, and finally to the most brutal measures - concentration camps - Nazi Germans not only killed Jewish people but stripped them off their dignity and humanity (USHMM). There was no distinction between men, women and children, or old and young people. Jews were brought to concentration camps where they were either selected for hard manual labour or were taken to the gas chambers, where they were killed by poisonous gasses. Those, who were chosen to work, usually had to work until they collapsed dead, so ultimately there was no option for escape. Only in Aushwitz, over 1 million jews found their death (USHMM).
Both of these insane dictators annihilated millions of people, even their own people for unjustified reasons. The Holocaust eradicated over six million Jews and two-thirds of the population in Europe. Under Hitler’s rule, the Jews, and other minorities were tortured, dehumanized, starved, shot, gassed, and incinerated. Pol Pot’s people were tortured just as the Jews when he targeted and killed almost a half-million Chinese for no reason. In the Holocaust, many Jews died just from the walk from one concentration camp to another.
Think of a man named Hitler, who killed 6 million Jews. During the Holocaust, a lot of Jews died from Hitler and his soldiers actions. These people he killed people, called Jews, the Nazis were very cruel and treated the Jews poorly. So they put them in concentration camps and killed all of them slowly, they killed most of them by gassing them and they also killed them by shooting them. In the book The Boy In The Striped Pajamas, Bruno was living in a place called Berlin then his dad got a promotion and the had to move to Out-With which is where he met Shmuel.
Hitler and some German socialists believed in the purity of Germans’ ethnicity; they saw Jews and Gypsies as the most dangerous threat to their race purity. When Hitler came to power, he started stripping Jews from their jobs and properties. After that, he started gathering them from all Europe, departed them to the Polish ghettoes, and gassing and killing them. By the end of WWII, he killed more than 6 million Jews. However, there were some survivors who witnessed the whole catastrophic story of the Holocaust.
The Nazis established ghettos in poland, Polish and Western European Jews were all taken to Ghettos. Their methods used to kill the Jews were mostly shooting or gas vans. Even this took a psychological burden on the nazis to the point where they couldn’t kill. The Holocaust lasted for 12 years and near the end the allies were advancing on Germans and begin to take over the camps. The oder and and sight of the living conditions of these peoples were an abomination.The book night talks about these topics and Wiesel writes and thinks about the death and disappearance of God and his own increasing disgusted with humanity, reflected in the overturn of the parent-child relationship, as his father drops to a helpless state Wiesel becomes his annoyed teenage caregiver.
Unfortunately, some of the children were rounded up and secretly sterilized, some were subject to terrible medical experiments, and some simply mysteriously “disappeared.” The mixed race also had a lot of trouble with finding jobs and were even turned down when attempting to join their military. Not only were children victimized in Germany but adult African Germans were also treated horribly. Many were sent to internment camps and some were even murdered by the SS. Afro-Germans are not very known of, but they were a big part of the horrible actions Hitler took to please himself (Blacks during the Holocaust). Before Hitler built his nefarious camps, he started off by murdering Germany’s mentally and physically disabled.
I will remember the Holocaust because a lot of people were hurt and killed. The American Soldiers were fighting to win World War ll, they risked their lives to save people from this tragic event. Some people even died, who weren’t Jews. 11 million people died during this awful time and only 6 million were Jews. The Nazis killed about ⅔ of the Jews living in Europe.
Holocaust Heroes - Miep Gies. The holocaust was the worst genocide ever realized on earth, it left millions of victims dead. Thousands of people helped this horrible and non human movement to be executed, the German Politics, SS police, German Soldiers and other organizations, but not everyone let Hitler’s propaganda and speeches influence on them, A lot of people helped thousands of Jews to hide during the war. Nazi-sponsored persecution and mass murder fueled resistance to the Germans in the Third Reich itself and throughout occupied Europe. Although Jews were the Nazis ' primary victims, they too resisted Nazi oppression in a variety of ways, both collectively and as individuals.Miep was a Dutch citizen who was recognized
Hitler made the military decisions for his country during the war, but he is perhaps most known for his role in the Holocaust. The Holocaust was "the systematic murder of 6 million Jews across Europe (Danzer et al. 542)." At first, Jewish people were restricted of their liberties through the Nuremberg Laws ("Holocaust Timeline"). After forcing many Jews to leave, only around 250,000 Jewish people remained in Germany; therefore, Hitler executed his Final Solution, which was "a policy of genocide, the deliberate and systematic murder of an entire population (Danzer et al.
