I couldn’t go to Dutch school anymore.” To put this quote differently, All the Jewish people were discriminated and got treated unfairly. They were kicked from their homes and jobs, had to give up land, and even had to wear yellow stars to signify that they are Jewish, just because of what they believe in. And according to Anne, these people are “Good at heart”. It doesn’t make sense. On History.com, the text states “This culminated in Kristallnacht, or the “night of broken glass” in November 1938, when German synagogues were burned and windows in Jewish shops were smashed; some 100 Jews were killed and thousands more arrested.” This quote shows the extent of how Jews were treated.
As the Holocaust came to its near end, torture for those in Sighet, Transylvania begins. On page twenty, cruelty stirs up for the Jewish town after ghettos were set up. “A Jew no longer had the right to keep in his house gold, jewels, or any objects of value.” “There was a new decree: every Jew had to wear a yellow star.” In the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, every fellow citizen has privileges that cannot be taken away due to race, color, sex, or language. Since their status was considered inferior, their rights were taken away before they knew that the Germans were going to wipe out their population. Under these quotes recited from the text, article two can be matched with the book’s description of discrimination.
As if it never existed. Sobibor was not a well known camp. But, many lives were lost to the wrath ,of a horrible man, by the name of Adolf Hitler. Now, all that is left at the former site of Hitler's death camp, Sobibor , is the mound of ashes of those whose lives were stolen, to remind us that this cannot repeat itself. To remind us of all the broken, innocent souls, who had once experienced freedom.
The Holocaust In the late 1930’s Adolf Hitler had decided that the world would be better off if there were no Jewish people. All Jewish kids were kicked out of all Activities and school. The Gestapo Police were policemen that only followed Hitler 's orders, they were ordered by Hitler to imprison or kill all unwanted people, such as blacks, Polish, disabled, and homosexuals. (Mackay 6) The Holocaust was a murder of 6 million Jewish people. That was over 40% of the world 's Jewish population.
Never shall I forget those moments that murdered my God and my soul and turned my dreams to ashes. Never shall I forget those things, even were I condemned to live as long as God Himself. Never.”(Wiesel, 34) This was written at the end of the first day. It really shows how dehumanization can make someone feel. After all that the men, women, and children have gone through they never thought of revenge, and only thought of bread.
The Nuremberg laws banned Jews from having any contact with Germans. Also, the laws banned Jewish people from attending public places. The jews starved daily and were forced to work like slaves. The Nazis partied in front of the jews and taunted them on the regular. Some camps were just full of hatred for example 1 million people died at the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp 90% of those were jews.
The only way to freedom was at the death camp. They were steered just because they were Jews. And World War ll was the most devastating place for them during that time. Six and a half million of the Jews and people were killed and the only thing they both wanted to be was free. Kristina and Pobel had lived in the sewers for as long as they can remember but Pobel was killed and Kristina escpaed the sewers and made it out of decease camp.
If it was not labor and abuse the other alternative was the crematorium. Not only were Jews treated with such disrespect, but many of them were sent to the ovens to get burnt. The ovens were a place where Jews were forced to suffer through a slow and agonizing death. The Jews were now known as things or animals.¨Faster you filthy dogs!¨ (85) That was not their only cruel way of dehumanizing. The Germans wanted
Someone who commanded a whole group of soldiers to invade and kill everyone who was in the village and leave no survivors at all should be trialed for all his crimes that has been done.”Even in Germany … if the guy was the commander of the unit , then even if they can 't show he personally pulled the trigger, he bears the responsibility.” Even if only sending the command or just being part of it and having some sort of say into the matter because it 's such a massacre that they as well are responsible for the action that ended up happening. “A top commander of a Nazi SS-led unit accused of burning villages filled with women and children..” Their is in no circumstances that someone like that in the U.S should be allowed in the country. In conclusion the SS officers should be punished for their crimes. Nothing is going to erase their record. As well as all the harm that they have done to people and the families of those people.
When liberating Auschwitz the Red army described the people as living “skeletons”. The camp smelled terrible because of all the unburied bodies that were stacked up in sheds and broken buildings. They also found over seven tons of human hair, about 836,000 women’s coats and 349,000 men’s suits. Then when liberating Majdanek the Red army found much of the same characteristics but the prisoners were so far past the breaking point that they would say when they were going to die, and they wished for it. There were stacks of dried, bleached bones and skulls.
