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.
In that time, during World War two, death was the biggest risk for Jews. The Natizs goal was to find all of the Jews and kill them, to end a race. They believed that the Jews were the cause of everything that has happened to them. Death was always a risk back then if you were a Jew. Not only was it death to Jews, but death to anyone who might’ve hidden or helped them.
A father and a son both die because they are fighting for a piece of bread in order to survive. “His son searched him, took the bread, and began to devour it. He was not able to get very far”(Wiesel 96). This example shows that a father and a son are fighting for the piece of bread and hurting each other, and the father and the son died at the end which showed their inhumanity to other humans in order to avoid from the hunger. Other Jews are happy when the
(“Final Solution”) The way in which they killed was the most cruelty and coldness ever happen in all the history of the world. They created concentration camps so the Jews work and at the end they were killed, this includes women’s, children's and men’s. The camp ideal was to kill the Jews even with gas chambers, asphyxiation with poison gas or by shooting. (“Final Solution”) This violent crimes committed against groups with the intent to destroy the existence of the Jews was the most atrophy that had occur in all the history of the world. (“Genocide”)This is genocide is consider institutional or systemic oppression because the Nazis took the control and decided to kill all the Jews without any valid reason.
Due to the mass hysteria the blame quickly fell to the rich Jews. It is stated that, “Jews throughout the world were reviled and accused in all lands of having caused it [the plague] through the poison which they are said to have put into the water and the well” (Document 7). The nation was in need of answers so when the Jews were pointed out as a scapegoat all of Europe followed. Though sadly the blame was not the worst thing to befall the Jewish people. In Document 7 it is stated that, “On Saturday - that was St. Valentine’s Day - they burnt the Jews on a wooden platform in their cemetery.
Mental dehumanization was the stage in which saddened me the most. An example was when Wiesel and all the jewish prisoners in Bruna had assembled on the Appelplatz on the eve of Rosh Hashanah, his thoughts were, “Why, but why would I bless Him? Every fiber in me rebelled. Because he caused thousands of children to burn in His mass graves?” (Wiesel 67). Elie Wiesel was very religious before he
The Biography of Joseph Sher In the 20th century, World War II began and caused many deaths everywhere in Europe, The war was fought between many countries that formed two different alliances: the Allies and the Axis. One of the leaders from the Axis power, Adolf Hitler, hated the Jews. He believed that the Aryan race was the master race of the people. All who were not considered as Aryan race was discriminated and hated in Germany. Jewish people were victim of the abuse that they received from the "Superior" Aryan race, they were sent towards concentration camp and were treated harshly and killed in cold blood, simply because of their religion, this was called the holocaust.
This man, in a wheelchair, was thrown out of the window and at this point in the movie I was filled with complete shock, I was wondering how anyone could see this man as useless.

When the Jews in Warsaw started a rebellion, I could see the final solution even clearer. Nazi’s did not see Jews as people but as a problem in their society that they needed to wipe out. Throughout the stage of the final solution it was hard to see Nazi soldiers with no remorse for the situation Jews were

Then in 1939, they were no longer allowed to own any gold or silver (Steele 26). 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.

Another reason was that the ghettos were a holding place for the Jews. The Jews would live there in the ghettos.
