1.3 million people died at Auschwitz, 1,095,000 of those being Jews. Auschwitz had four gas chambers that used Zyklon B gas to kill people very quickly. Approximately 6000 people were gassed every day at this location. After they gassed the people they would usually burn the bodies in a crematorium (Auschwitz). At the concentration camps, they would also conduct medical experiments on some of the patients.
As people can see the daily lives of the prisoners were extremely strenuous. Prisoners of the concentration camps were traumatized. They were stripped of their freedom and were forced to work until they could no longer carry on. Thankfully this event has long since passed and the survivors have been liberated and allowed to live the remainder of their lives in peace without fear of something like this happening to them again. One specific experience the victims of the Holocaust went through were the Concentration camps that the Germans forcefully took them too.
During the Holocaust Jews were put through horrific things you can’t even imagine would happen to another human being. Jews lives were completely changed, they had gone from happy with their family to families torn apart within a few days. The prisoners wondered how long they were going to live. They had never known what day was going to be their last. The Holocaust is a very significant event in history because of how horrible Jews lived their lives back then and where they lived their lives during that period of time.
People being dragged away from their homes, bring only minimal things with them. Large bands of Jewish people lined up in the streets, taken to be shipped off to concentration camps. After being taken away from their homes and marched in the street, they would be shipped off in cattle cars. These cars were very unsanitary, often times carrying diseases, which in many cases most would die on the cars. If by chance most survived up until arriving at a concentration camp, more would starve, die from illness or die from overworking.
Sadly, many people did not survive and the ones that did were lucky. Buchenwald affected the Holocaust because it was setup to hurt people, the living conditions were harsh, and many people died. Buchenwald concentration camp was set up to work people to death. The goal was not to kill people,but rather have them work so hard that they would die. Buchenwald was given its name by Heinrich Himmler on
The most inhumane thing about diseases is that humans spread them to each other. In Tuesdays with Morrie, Morrie mourns for himself every morning because of the horrible disease that has taken over his body (Albom 56). Morrie’s disease has caused almost all of his physical capabilities cease to exist. This disease caused Morrie to lose some of his humanity. In Night, Jews being held in concentration camps were constantly catching diseases.
Destruction Ghettos were mainly temporary, and were completely closed off (Types of Ghettos). Destruction Ghettos were the worst types of ghettos for a Jewish community to live in (Types of Ghettos). According to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, “Destruction Ghettos were tightly sealed off and existed for between two and six weeks before the Germans and/or their collaborators deported or shot the Jewish population concentrated in them.” These types of ghettos were found in the Hungary and the German-occupied Soviet Union. Closed and Open Ghettos, however, were simpler for Jews. They were allowed to work and weren’t deported to camps as quickly as the Jews in the Destruction Ghettos were.
Jews were murdered and was sent to the concentration camps and gas chambers. Most of the concentration camps are located in Poland and Germany, and one famous camp is called the Auschwitz Birkenau Camp. Many prisoners were also sent to the gas chamber due to many crimes they’ve caused. Literally naked prisoners roaming around in the gas chamber with no food or water, are stuck in there forever. The prisoners were locked up in the gas chambers for them to die and others had to get used to their new daily routines in living in these concentration camps.
Under Adolf Hitler's rule, Germany was controlled by the Nazi’s who constricted many aspects of life. Hitler joined the German Workers party and soon became its leader during the year of 1921. Nearly ten years later he became the dictator of Germany along with his Nazi government. In the 1930’s, when the Nazi’s took power many lives dramatically changed for the negative, especially for the Jews. Dachau was the first working Concentration Camp located on the land of an abandoned factory near the town of Dachau that was formed by a dictatorship, treated the jews worse than imagined, and ran like every other concentration camp.
Prisoners in the Nazi labour camps were worked to death. They had a small amount of ration. The prisoners who couldn’t work were killed and many died as a result of forced labour in the camps. Later on after the invasion of Poland, Jews over the age of 12 who were living in the General Government were forced to work under forced labour. Then all non-Germans who were in the General Government were subject to forced labour in 1942.
They went through harsh labor that killed most of the people. Some people decided to take a stand, but got punished harshly for those actions. They weren 't treated well for these reasons. More than nine million of the Jewish population died in the
