Who 's to blame? Over six million innocent Jewish families and children were massacred from 1933 through 1945. But why? Who could stomach the thought of little children being killed. We never really understood why the Jews specifically.Was it only Adolf Hitler’s fought or maybe there were more people behind these horrible crimes.
The other thing that was hard was leaving your house and belongings that you built your life on just disappearing. No matter how tough you think you are if you were apart of the holocaust you would feel like a baby. I know if I were ever a part of that tragic event I would not even thing about my 18th birthday and that 's just the sad truth. I can 't even think about joking if the holocaust was the subject. The Nuremberg laws were a huge part of the holocaust because it did one bad thing which basically made hate legal.
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.
Firstly, when people do not stand up for each other, they allow evil to return time and time again. Many people allowed the Nazis to continually deport the Jews and other non-Jews on the target list, and the Nazis always came back for more. Terrible Things is an allegory of the Holocaust, and as the rabbits are being taken, they cry, " 'Somebody help! ' But there was no one left to help" (Bunting, 24). Throughout the allegory, the forest creatures are being taken one by one by the Terrible Things, despite all warnings and opportunities to escape.
The Gypsies, most like the Jews, were moved by Nazis to unusual areas, and almost the entire race of Gypsies in Eastern Europe was wiped out. Hitler considered the Jehovah’s Witnesses to be a threat because from the very beginning, this strong group of Christians believed in no other God than Jehovah (“The Holocaust: Non-Jewish Victims” 2). Hitler chose different ways and means to persecute these different
Passive Resistance In 1939, WWII began when Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party invaded Poland, causing six million Jewish people to fear for their lives. This fear began when all people and citizens had to complete a census and carry an identification card. Second, the Jews had to wear the Star of David and they were forced into ghettos. Third, they were taken to the concentration camps and the death camps. In “Resistance During the Holocaust” resistance was so hard because many Jews were murdered by the Nazis and they had very little access to weapons.
Four Perfect Pebbles is the memoir of Marion Blumenthal Lazan 's experience as a child during the Holocaust. When Hitler rose to power, this young Jewish family, Marion, her father Walter, her mother Ruth and her brother Albert were stuck in Nazi Germany despite trying to escape. No one expected Hitler to rise to power in the 1920s but as his political message of Germany economic recovery and anti-Semitism caught on, they became concerned. When Hitler became Chancellor, discrimination against Jews began in earnest and the Blumenthals ' family store was quickly boycotted, forcing Walter to sell his products to customers in the countryside. As the situation worsened, the Blumenthals wanted to leave Germany, but they could not abandon Marion 's
Though Ellie was going through a totally different situation, it reminded me of my childhood. Also when I read the part about smoke coming out of the chimney, it made me remember the book The boy in the Striped Pyjamas. I thought about he the innocent child who was killed because the war. Like the rest of the millions people who whose death were the result of the nazi ideology. If everyone looked the same in the world, how would that help solve the problems of the world?
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.
March 20th, 1993 is when the Holocaust began and when the world saw Jewish men and women move to ghettos and concentration camps around the world. The Jews were taken from their homes, jobs and schools because of the religion they embraced and the culture they represented. From a young age, they were segregated from the rest of the world and discriminated against by a pretentious leader. During these times Nazis would give them false hope and allow them to bring small relics and heirlooms to feel safe. However, the Jews had no clue about the terrific life that was soon to come as they would suffer starvation, molestation, and experimentation.
