World War two was an awful time for everyone. People died and went through tough times.One place that was also awful and where millions of Jews were killed was concentration camps.Concentration camps first came around after Hitler was elected as Chancellor. In the camps there wasn 't a lot of food or water so people, mostly died of starvation and dehydration. The Germans established 20,000 camps to imprison Jews.In this research paper I will give you information about concentration camps in ww2.
Adolf Hitler came to power in 1933, and in 1934, Germany implemented the eugenics law—patients with hereditary disease could be imposed sterilization. It has a far-reaching influence. Finally, the eugenics of Hitler was beyond the scope of sterilization and turned into genocide. "’ Hereditary Talent and Character’ contains a rudimentary description of such a eugenic utopia, a society which has accepted ‘race improvement’ as the basis of its ethical code.” (Ruth S. C., 1972)
There were different types of camps. There was concentration camps which were mostly labor camps. There were death camps where they sent prisoners to the gas chambers and they would be gassed to death. There were camps that were just for Jews and there were camps for both Jews and non-Jews.
During this time, Jews (and every other group affected) were absolutely dehumanized. Once they arrived to these camps, typically through compact trains, they were not only stripped of the few items they had brought, but were stripped of their names, families and friends, usual lives, and any dignity or hope they had once had.
Niree’ Miller Mrs.Cannady English 2 Honors 4 March 2016 Holocaust In the 1940’s the Germans wanted to take rights and terminate the Jews. Some people tried to save Jews and help them by hiding them in their houses. Germans put over 6 million Jews in concentration camps and made them do work without pay, little food, and water. Women and very little children often got sent to gas chambers upon arrival.
Other Victims of the Holocaust When many people think of the Holocaust, they think of the six million Jewish victims and how they were the target of the Nazis. What people don 't realize is that there were many more victims, such as the Gypsies, Soviet POWs, and people with disabilities and mental handicaps. Knowing about these other groups will enhance your understanding of the horrors of the Holocaust. Out of all the groups the Nazis targeted, only the Gypsies and Jews were supposed to be entirely exterminated. The Gypsies were natural scapegoats since they were outsiders, originally from Turkey.
The people, lived in ghettos and also were transported to concentration camps, where they died from gas chambers, forced labor, etc,. It was a hard time in life for people in Germany. There were many Non- Jewish victims in the holocaust in Germany. Those Non- Jewish people consisted of: African Americans, Gypsies, Homosexuals, and countless more Non- Jewish people in the Holocaust. They were treated like the Jewish people also.
If anyone were to trip or fall they would be killed without any hesitation. Once the Nazis decided they had ran enough, the ones who had lived went on a train to go to Gleiwitz. On the train, a leader of the camp would throw some kind of food in the middle of the train for them all to fight for. After a while everyone went through another selection and if they did anything wrong they would be blown up. After people had died the strong would strip them of their clothes and all the food that they had to help themselves.

They took old, beat up boxcars and jammed hundreds of Jews in there with nothing to survive. This was the start of the US being involved in another war, but not soon enough. The fact that any Jewish people survived is crazy, and here 's why.
In 1945 jews and many others types of people were taken from their homes, apartments, and other places and were taken to concentration camps. concentration camps where they kept them to kill, torture, and just to make them feel horrible and even worse.

Did you know that more than 6 million jews were killed in the holocaust
Unspoken Victims of The Holocaust Of the countless victims of Adolf Hitler’s brutal genocide none were persecuted more than the Jews, however, among the large death toll many others were mercilessly punished for their race, beliefs, or occupation. A major target for Hitler’s “Final Solution” was the mentally and physically disabled. In their article on the mentally and physically handicapped the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum wrote “The Law for the Prevention of Progeny with Hereditary Diseases, proclaimed July 14, 1933, forced the sterilization of all persons who suffered from diseases considered hereditary, such as mental illness (schizophrenia and manic depression), retardation (congenital feeble-mindedness), physical deformity,

To concentrate and monitor the Jewish population as well as to facilitate later deportation of the Jews, the Germans and their collaborators created ghettos, transit camps, and forced-labor camps for Jews during the war years. The German authorities also established numerous forced-labor camps, both in the Greater German Reich and in German occupied territory.
