The Children of the Holocaust Over 1.5 million children from across Europe were murdered under the Nazi regime. Understanding how Jewish children were treated, how Nazi children were treated, and if children from other countries or races were affected by this will help us have more insight on this topic. Jewish children 's lives were greatly affected by the Nazi regime. Their lives changed dramatically when the Nazi’s came into power in 1933. The Nazi’s removed the civil of the Jews, and this greatly affected the Jewish children.
Im saying this kind of nonchalantly but here 's a quote from Sendler describing how difficult it was to save the children “To save one Jewish child, ten Poles and two Jews had to risk death. To betray that same child and the family that hid him required only one informer or, worse still, one blackmailer.” Later Irena Sendler became the leader of the Children’s division of the Zegota. In 1943 the German Gestapo arrested and tortured Sendler, trying to make her give up the other Zegota leaders locations. Since
Gypsy Twins at Auschwitz “What he quickly discovered was that the twins did not die from natural causes; they had been injected with chloroform directly into their hearts”- anecdote from Miklos Nyiszli, Jewish assistant of Josef Mengele. Throughout the Holocaust there have been many tragic and horrendous events. Some of these acts occurred at the work camp Auschwitz. This includes the terrible experiments that were commited by Josef Mengele on Gypsy twins. Thousands of twins died during this time because of Mengele’s obsession of twins and of the many unknown experiments that they had to go through.
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. The first step in the Holocaust was moving the Jews to ghettos. Ghettos were temporary holding places for Jews. The Nazis wanted the concentration camps to exterminate the majority of the Jews, but the ghettos gave more opportunities for natural death (Byers 73). Many Jews were also forced to do labor in the ghettos, which sometimes caused natural death (Byers 73).

World War II was a horrible time in the world. Many Jewish people were murdered and killed for nothing more than being born Jewish. Lots of these people were children and one of these Jewish children was Anne Frank. Like many other Jewish people, she was forced into hiding by the Nazi Party and Hitler's regime. During Hitler's regime, Germany sent Jewish families and even children to places called concentration camps where they would be worked until their death.
Hiding and helping the Jews were something dangerous to do during the Holocaust. But some people took part in it and opened their arms out. Jewish children were to be hidden in Netherland to save themselves from Nazi deportation.

Hiding children or a family member was to be cost a lot due to that Jews carry a large black J toward their identity card which was a very hard thing to
Rajiv Goswami Writing I Hitler Youth Movement In 1944, Anne Frank wrote in her diary, “I don’t think of all the misery but of the beauty that still remains,” (Frank 157). She was murdered at Bergen-Belsen concentration camp the following year. By the time of the liberation of Auschwitz, approximately two million Jewish, gypsy, disabled, and non-Aryan children died at the hands of Hitler and his Nazi collaborators. This figure disregards almost eight million German boys and girls who were part of the Deutsches Jungvolk in der Hitler Jugend (Hitlerjugend) which translates to “German Youngsters in the Hitler Youth”.

Due to the problems, such as lack of resources, in the troubled areas, parents couldn’t do anything to protect their children from the cruel environment. They had no choice but to sell their children into fighting as a child soldier. Although some child soldiers are mindful about what they are doing, most are not given a choice therefore children should be pardoned for their

Some people tried to save Jews and help them by hiding them in their houses. Germans put over 6 million Jews in concentration camps and made them do work without pay, little food, and water.
