Hiding Max is very significant given the Hubermanns lived in Nazi Germany, a society that killed Jews and anybody who would dare to associate with them. “For me, the sky was the color of Jews. They just kept feeding me. Minute after minute. Shower after shower.”
This stage started in the year 1942. In this stage of the Holocaust was when deportations of Jews throughout Europe began to take place. The Nazis systematically gathered the majority of Jews throughout Europe and transported them to concentration camps in Eastern Europe. Jews and other enemies of the Nazis were imprisoned in the concentration camps. From 1940 to end on Jews were systematically move to the death camps specifically built to exterminate the Jews.
The Holocaust is known as the biggest genocide in history. The German Nazi killed about 6 million European Jews along with other persecuted groups like the gypsies and homosexuals. In schools everywhere they teach about the stories of survivors and those who vanquished in the Holocaust, but is it safe to say we have learned from Germany’s mass execution against the Jews? All around the world men and women are being victimized and discriminated by their background, their ethnicity and even by the color of their skin. The holocaust was not just a movement to mass execute the Jewish race; there were reasons behind this tragic event.
During World War 2, the most evident traits of totalitarianism were the Nazi’s military terror that led to the Warsaw ghetto, Hitler’s persecution of the Jews that resulted in death camps like Auschwitz, and Stalin’s control of individuals that caused famine across millions. Hitler and the Nazis used military terror in World War 2 to force Jews into the Warsaw Ghetto, which resulted in starvation and death. Military terror was a tactic used by rulers to gain obedience through violence. Many times leaders have a special police force to protect the government's interests and scare the people into abiding by their rules. In Germany, Hitler used military terror to enforce his leadership with the help from the Nazi party.
The Holocaust occurred in Europe in the early 1940’s (Altman 1). Constructed by Adolf Hitler, Germany’s first and only Führer, the Holocaust is a horrible event (Introduction). Jewish people were treated in cruel and brutal ways. Over six million died in concentration camps, ghettos, or death marches (Rice 11). 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.

The Holocaust was an immoral machination orchestrated by the Nazi’s to eliminate any person who did not meet their criteria of a human. Millions were interned in camps all around Europe. Each person who survived the Holocaust has a different story. Within Elie Wiesel’s Night (2006) and the movie “Life is Beautiful” (2000) two different perspectives on the Holocaust are presented to audiences both however deal with the analogous subjects faced by prisoners. Inside both works you can find the general mood of sadness.
It is extremely important to prosecute the criminals as a way of remembering the Holocaust victims and knowing what they went through. “Everywhere in the world, there is an obscene attempt by people who call themselves historians who dare to deny the deaths of the victims. Who dares to tell me my parents were not killed in the camps” (Wiesel 6). This shows that many people disbelieve in the Holocaust; therefore they are forgetting the horrendous things done to the victims. It is very important to remember the tragedy that the Holocaust caused in order for it to not happen again.

Jews were not treated the same as other German citizins by the Nazi party. This act of hatred or maybe even racism was called Anti-Semitism. Due to this Jews were wrongly blamed for sickness, poverty, economic crisis, political conflicts, and more (Byers 9).
The death camps were places where the detainees would be taken into chambers where toxic gas would be released and the prisoners would just drop dead. The “Final Solution” was one of the key elements that the Nazi Society believed in. Though at the beginning of the Nazi occupation of Europe work camps were the places where the prisoners were forced to work long grueling hours, later in the occupation they started to use death camps to help them in the “Final Solution”. According to the U.S Holocaust Memorial Museum, “Millions of people were imprisoned and abused in the various types of Nazi camps. Under SS management, the Germans and their collaborators murdered more than three million Jews in the killing centers alone.
The Holocaust was deadly and brutal for the millions of people who had to endure the concentration camps and face terror from the Nazis. When the Anti-Semitic leader Adolf

He has gone through every painful event in the holocaust and the most painful event was knowing how his father died and that his father death brought him joy not sorrow. The Holocaust is an important because it shapes who he is. Wiesel wouldn 't have become a fighter for peace if he wouldn 't have experienced all the terrible thing his own kind did to him, the beatings, the hunger and the pain.
