Peter says in anger “Look at us hiding for 2 years not being able to move.” (Frank, 510) The people that are hiding in the annex are only there because they don’t want to get sent to a concentration camp, or be put to their death. If they got caught hiding, they would be sent to a concentration camp, just because they are Jewish. They are being forced to hide, it’s the only way that they could survive. When the Germans ended up finding the families in the annex Anne wrote in her diary and said “They have allowed us 5 minutes to pack our things.” (Frank, 511.) While Anne and her family have many sentimental things, they only allowed them to pack for 5 minutes, they have to grab whatever they can.

The Jews broke the fence I escape the death camp.All of the Jews knew they weren't gonna make it out alive so they tried to escape because they didn't wantto die.So the Jews knew the best way to stay alive was to escape but only a few made it.Most of the Jew would eat all the rotten food because sometimes that's all the food they get. There were 250,000 men,women killed from the Sobibor.There was only 88 people that survived it alive.Then probably after they survived they probably died of the lack of hunger or a disease they got.The nazis would hide all the bodies under ground for they can get rid of the evidence.If the nazis never hid the evidence they would of gone to jail.

When my family and I finally got to town all the Jewish-owned businesses on the street had been vandalized. My father told us all to spread out and try to find if anyone was stuck in the vandalism or destruction. My mother brother and I went and started looking in stores that were really destroyed. We didn’t find anyone stuck or hiding so we started to head back home. We walked for about an hour looking around to see how many Jewish-owned businesses on our street had been vandalized.
Sadly, she was pulled by German’s and ended up staying overnight in custody. The next morning two soldiers came to her, she thought they were coming to kill her, but surprisingly they didn’t.

Around 800,000 to one million individuals were killed at Treblinka Death Camp from July 23, 1942 to October 19, 1943 in Eastern Poland; 90 precent of all detainees was killed inside of two hours of entry.

The survivors were never the same after the ordeal, many had really horrible traumatic experiences during when this happened to them or their family friends. One survivor exclaimed that, “together we have been charged with this mission to talk because we are the last living generation to have borne witness to this, and so we have a tremendous responsibility to make it known to the world in our lifetime.” This tells us that they want us to know and remember what had happened to the Jewish people and so that it never happens again to any other group or ethnicity of people or religion. In another account by a survivor named Sam Bankhalter he explained how his sister suffers still because she thought it was her fault that her mother was killed because she gave her child to her mother before they got to the camp and anyone holding a child would immediately go into the crematorium to be burned. After the war the church said that Anti-Semitism was against the beliefs of the Christian people because they are supposed to “Love thy Neighbor”.
