The Nazis would choose whether they were capable of doing difficult outdoor work or if they should be sent to the gas chambers. 865,000 people did upon arrival, mainly due to gassing (Killing Centers). Thousands of people died from exhaustion from working since they were already weak from having no food (Byers 112). In 1941 Hitler came up with the final solution. He set up killing centers to quickly kill as many Jews as possible.
The holocaust resulted in the slaughter killed 5 million Jews and Jew and thousands of others suffering in death camps where they were experimented on and tortured. Innocent people 's lives were lost and ruin. The effect of this monstrosity devastated these people 's lives they watched as Nazi raped and killed their children. The final solution is the Nazi plan to extinguish all of the Jewish. The Nazis established ghettos in poland, Polish and Western European Jews were all taken to Ghettos.
This shows how casually that SS officer murdered the children and how surprised Elie was when they did it. Another reason is millions of people died, it 's why the Holocaust is greatly remembered. "...allowing them to be tortured, slaughtered, gassed, and burned" (Wiesel 68). This stands out because many Jews died so brutally and they couldn 't do anything to stop it. Which is much more important than fire and night.
One event that occurred was when the Jews arrived in Birkenau. Here the main character Eliezer Wiesel witnessed babies and young children being thrown into the crematorium. The crematorium was a very large fire that babies,children, and sick people were tossed for not being able to work at the concentration camps. Also in Birkenau the Jews were forced to be forced into showers, shave heads. and to get tattoo’s on their hands.
The memoir written by Elie Wiesel, Night, is illustrating the Holocaust, the even which caused the death of over 6 million Jews. Auschwitz, the concentration camps, is responsible for over 1 million of the deaths. In the memoir Night, Wiesel uses the symbolism of fire, and silence to clearly communicate to the readers that the Holocaust was a catastrophic and calamitous event, and that children should never be involved in warfare. Elie Wiesel enters Auschwitz at the age of 15, and witnesses’ horrific events as a prisoner in Auschwitz, including the deaths of numerous children, and the beating and death of his own father. All these inhumane things were done just because Adolf Hitler wanted to cleanse the German society of the Jews.
Could you picture around 6 million people? Now how would you feel if all of them were killed right now? All of them being killed because they were African American or they were Mexican. The Holocaust was when the Nazi’s led by Adolf Hitler persecuted, tortured, and killed people just because they were Jewish. People were separated from their families and gassed or burned just to keep up with how many people were coming into the camp, or just to amuse themselves.
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 bodies were then taken by Sonderkommandos to the open cremation pit on a peak. The pit had iron rails bound in layers inside of it like grillwork, on which the bodies were burned. Jews were intermittently forced to enter the pit and filter through the fiery remains for any bones that should have been be ground. On August 2, 1943, the prisoners fought back.
Ms Schacheter’s: “Jews, look! Look at the fire! Look at the flames!”() “Never shall I forget the small faces of the children whose bodies I was transformed into smoke under a silent sky.”(p. 34) “The student of Talmud had been consumed by the flames.” Fire is used as a symbol of death in the book “”Night”. The fire symbolizes death in the book “Night”, because it has burned the bodies of lot of Jews. In the first quote Ms Schacheter’s warns the Jew in the train, when they are burned at that moment.
Nazi camps starved the Jews until they were considered “human skeletons” and could not even walk. Second, some Jews had to fall from great heights for a job. A job for Jews was sometimes to fall from high places so the SS could see how high somebody could be dropped until they broke a bone. Finally, concentration camps were not immune to disease. After put in the camps, Jews had their head shaved.
Dehumanization, neglect and the ovens were not the right solution to Hitler's plan. The people who lived through these harsh years are scarred for life. Hope filled their minds while they all prayed to God to leave Auschwitz some day. The time went further and every day felt longer. Death happened through
All these brave people faced harsh punishments such as being hung, shot, or killed with poisonous gas. To conclude, concentration camps did horrible thing to people just because Hitler did see them as "desirable", Hitler thought that we should live in a world without Jews. So he sent them to concentration camps. They lived in harsh conditions. They went through harsh labor that killed most of the people.
