The Author, Ruth Minsky Sender, chose the title “the cage” , but why? Ruth is a survivor of the Holocaust, who wrote a book about her experience, and the different places she has went. So why did she title this book “the cage”? Let’s look into some reasons Sender may have came up with the title “the cage”. One quote that Sender uses often throughout the book is “As long as there is life, there is hope.”(Sender 253)
The Holocaust took place during the years 1933 to 1945. It was an attempt to remove all of the Jews, and other smaller groups such as homosexuals and Jehovah's Witnesses, which lived in the country of Germany. The events that took place during the holocaust were lead by a German man named Adolf Hitler. Schindler's List is a film about the Holocaust from a man named Oskar Schindler's perspective as a leader of a concentration camp. The film displays the five stages of the Holocaust. These five stages include when life became uncomfortable for the Jews, violent life for the Jews, isolation of the Jews, removal of the Jews, and “the final solution” in trying to do away with still living German Jews.
Elie Wiesel’s true story Night, is an intriguing story about the Holocaust. The guards and even veteran prisoners are cruel to others. The punishments, even for tiny faults, are unthinkably horrid. Man does not care how old or weak someone is; this makes the children and teens change and act inhumane towards other prisoners, even towards their own family. It clearly, and painfully, explains man’s inhumanity to man.
The Holocaust was the mass/systematic extermination of a specific race or group of people, places, or things. The German Nazi party, which was recognized as a political party and a political movement at the time of its creation, disrespected and displayed acts of cruel and unusual punishment towards the Jewish People, and this message was spread around to the masses through multiple very calculated moves and acts of propaganda at the time, spread by ex-German Fuhrer Adolf Hitler, whom of which displayed and possessed a definitive hate of the Jewish
After being named Chancellor, Hitler began what is known as the Holocaust. The Holocaust started on January 30, 1933 and lasted until May 8, 1945. The Holocaust was the mass murder of 6 million Jews (1.5 million of them being children). The Germans started burning the books that the Jews had written, removing Jews from their occupations and their schools, and taking their businesses and properties(An Introductory History of the Holocaust-Jewish Virtual Library). The Jews were forced from their houses to go to live in ghettos away from all society(An Introductory History of the Holocaust-Jewish Virtual Library). The ghettos were surrounded by barbed wire and high walls so the Jews couldn’t leave(An Introductory History of the Holocaust-Jewish Virtual Library). The German Army took up the western half of Poland in 1939(An Introductory History of the Holocaust-Jewish Virtual Library). The Army expanded Hitler’s empire in the spring and summer of 1940(An Introductory History of the Holocaust- Jewish Virtual Library). They had conquered Norway, Denmark, Belgium, The Netherlands, France, and Luxemburg(An Introductory History of the Holocaust-Jewish Virtual Library). After German religious leaders protested, Hitler put an end to the Holocaust in August 1941(An Introductory History of the Holocaust-Jewish Virtual Library). In 1933, Jews in Germany were about 525,000 (1%) of the total German population(The Holocaust-World War 2). Between 1933 and 1939, hundreds of thousands of the Jews who could leave Germany, did, those who couldn’t, stayed in fear(The Holocaust-World War 2). Evidence has shown hatred towards the Jews long before the Holocaust(The Holocaust-World War 2). Hitler blamed the Jews for the defeat of the war in 1918(The Holocaust-World War 2). After the death of President Paul Von Hidenburg in 1934, Hitler made himself Germany’s supreme
The Holocaust was the systematic persecution and murder of around six million Jews by Hitler and the Nazi party. First the Jews were first regularly transported by trains to extermination camps, there were killed in gas chambers. This continued until April–May 1945. Hitler had the ruthlessness and means to solely plan a genocide in 1925 . As a youth he was rejected by a Jew, he mistakenly believed the loss of World War 1 was due Jewish weakness and creating a genocide gave him a reason to break the Treaty of Versailles. On the other hand, Hitler was not an opportunist or a functionalist as didn't have any assistance for the Holocaust because he was a powerful, single minded individual and was blamed by other Nazi members in court. Due to the substantial amount of evidence found, the internationalist idea of Hitler intending and planning the Holocaust in 1925 is the most likely opinion.
In the Holocaust, Nazi killed numerous people, both Jewish and non- jewish. Hitler was the cause of the Holocaust. Countless people suffered because of Adolf Hitler, the leader of Nazi Germany.

Many events that happened in World War II were the direct cause from leaders that took control of their country and asked no questions and were relentless leaders. Stalin killed more than 40 Million people while in power in World War II, Hitler approximately killed 11 million people including 6 million Jewish people that were in camps and executed by the Nazis. Joseph Stalin was a far worse and more brutal dictator than adolf hitler.
The Holocaust was a horrific tragedy which started in January of 1933 and ended in May of 1945, the Holocaust was the mass murder of millions of people. The word was derived from the Greek word that meant Sacrifice to the Gods (Steele 7), also called the Shoan which is the Hebrew word for catastrophe (Steele 7). So many countries took place in this 12-year genocide, including, “Germany, Italy, Japan, Romania, Hungary, and Bulgaria, which were also known as the Axis Powers” (Steele 34). But, although there were all those countries they were all part of one larger group called the Nazis, were the ones who were killing all the different denominations of people. (Bachrach 58). All of this led to the gigantic catastrophe called the Holocaust. The
In the autobiography Mein Kampf by Adolf Hitler, he expresses his political ideologies and strategies in ruling over millions of people. He mostly reveals his perspectives on racial matters, asserting that the Aryan race is dominant over any other ethnic groups. Although Adolf Hitler’s statements successfully convinced and appealed to almost all the people in the Germanic nation, his arguments, however, are undoubtedly loaded with logical fallacies.

In the eleven documents we’ve viewed, its easy to see that the Germans have taken away basic human rights of the Jewish people. They've abused and practically tortured these poor Jewish people. Not to mention, the Jewish people have done nothing wrong to the Germans or Hitler, they just blamed them for the hyperinflation. Lastly, These Jewish people have a right to live their lives to the fullest and to the best of their ability and the Germans ripped that away from them. And once again, they did nothing wrong.
"I was a body. Perhaps less than that even: a starved stomach. The stomach alone was aware of the passage of time." (Wiesel 50) This was a quote from a Holocaust survivor, Ellie Wiesel. He published a book many years later, to tell his side of the story. The Holocaust was an extermination plan for the Jewish faith and its followers. The Holocaust was under the control of a Nazi leader, Adolf Hitler. Hitler was an anti-Semite, meaning he not only had hatred towards the Jews but he showed it as well. As of today, the Holocaust genocide by far, was the most horrifying event for the Jews as well as the nation. The Holocaust killed many innocent lives ranging from infants to the elderly. Nevertheless the Holocaust was the top killing genocide, there
During World War II, multiple tragedies occurred, such as the medical experiment that Jews and other cultures witnessed. The holocaust is truly an insult to humanity.
