In all, 200,000 gypsies and disabled people were killed (The Holocaust). On May 7, 1945 the Germans surrendered unconditionally to allies (The Holocaust). Displaced persons camps opened up all over and this is where majority of the survivors were found (The Holocaust).

With barbed wire surrounding them and took all of their belongings and made certain rules for them to live by as far as being a jew. Soon they were all moved to concentration camps where they had a whole new awful life where there was no hope in escaping. In 1945 the horror was finally over, Hitler was defeated and World War II ends in Europe. Many of the survivors were placed in displaced persons
Lauren Bujel Mr. Deines 17 January, 2023 The Writing Techniques of Elie Wiesel The Holocaust is an event in history that took place in Nazi Germany during World War II. The Jews were kept in concentration camps that were designed to either kill the Jewish people or to have them work until they’re no longer useful to the Nazis. About six million Jews were killed during the Holocaust.
There were a total of 11 million people killed in the Holocaust. This is an extremely substantial number of innocent people that were killed, as a result of Adolf Hitler’s “Master Plan” of killing all Jews. These events altered millions of people’s lives and changed history.
The Horrors of Auschwitz The Holocaust, which started in 1933 and continued to 1945 was an awful time where Jews were murdered and sent to concentration camps to die. In Poland one of the largest concentration camps, Auschwitz, where 1.3 million people died. Auschwitz, the death camp, was a horrible place where many people died, lost hope, and were stripped of civilization all because of their religion and race.
During the Holocaust, six million Jews were sent to their deaths. Nevertheless, in the Holocaust literature, one can find the glimpse of joy. In 1933, in Germany, Adolf Hitler and his Nazi party created a German Empire & Jews were no place in Hitler’s vision. Love & Laughter were two of the main things that made Jews and other people forget the time happening in the Holocaust, including nature. Almost 2,700,000 Jews were sent to extermination camps such as, Treblinka and Chelmno, where they were lately killed.
"...to remain silent and indifferent is the greatest sin of all..." The Holocaust killed over 6-7 million people. Jews were forced to live in specific areas of the city called ghettos after the beginning of World War ll. In the larger ghettos, up to 1,000 people a day were picked up and brought by train to concentration camps or death camps. Elie Wiesel was a survivor in the Holocaust.
The Holocaust lasted for four years, a mass genocide executed by Nazi Germany, with the goal to eradicate all Jews. Six million Jews were successfully murdered, and hardly anyone lifted a finger to help the thousands killed daily. Elie Wiesel was right in saying that 'Being a neutral bystander helps those who are evil; that remaining silent encourages even more evil to happen '. This is true, since evil always comes back and causes so many people so much pain.
Eleven million lives were massacred in one of the world’s darkest moments attempting to create a perfect race. In 1942 Germany was losing World War II, Adolf Hitler 's final solution was to target the blame towards Europe 's Jewish population, gypsies, and homosexuals. Together Hitler and the Nazi regime gradually deprived the Jews, gypsies and homosexuals from their rights. Many people were brought to labor camps by train. The conditions in camps were inhumane.
After being named Chancellor, Hitler began what is known as the Holocaust. The Holocaust started on January 30, 1933 and lasted until May 8, 1945. The Holocaust was the mass murder of 6 million Jews (1.5 million of them being children). The Germans started burning the books that the Jews had written, removing Jews from their occupations and their schools, and taking their businesses and properties(An Introductory History of the Holocaust-Jewish Virtual Library). The Jews were forced from their houses to go to live in ghettos away from all society(An Introductory History of the Holocaust-Jewish Virtual Library).
Like many genocides the Holocaust was one of the worst recorded in history. The Holocaust happened during World War II when Hitler became the leader of Germany in 1933. The War was mostly present in Europe, East Asia or the Pacific Islands but the Holocaust, which was a genocide of Jews, took place in Europe. Nazi’s and SS officers would storm the houses of Jews and move them into ghettos eventually ending up in a concentration camp. Some would die on their way there but mostly all the deaths occured in the camps.
Over 6 million people of the Jewish faith were killed during the Holocaust. An estimated 600,000 survived the concentration camps. Many people don’t understand how concentration camps affected one psychologically or spiritually. There are many authors that wrote about their experiences during the Holocaust and its effect on them. Two authors that show how the Holocaust effected them spiritually are Viktor Frankl and Elie Wiesel.
A genocide is the the deliberate killing of a large group of people, especially those of a particular ethnic group or nation, the Holocaust and the Cambodian Genocide are examples of this. After the Holocaust, in 1945 the United Nations realized that genocides were a continuously happening. They realized they needed to prevent genocides and global conflict in general. The Holocaust began on January 30, 1933 when Adolf Hitler became chancellor of Germany and ended May 8, 1945 when the war officially ended.
The Holocaust was a horrific tragedy which started in January of 1933 and ended in May of 1945, the Holocaust was the mass murder of millions of people. The word was derived from the Greek word that meant Sacrifice to the Gods (Steele 7), also called the Shoan which is the Hebrew word for catastrophe (Steele 7). So many countries took place in this 12-year genocide, including, “Germany, Italy, Japan, Romania, Hungary, and Bulgaria, which were also known as the Axis Powers” (Steele 34). But, although there were all those countries they were all part of one larger group called the Nazis, were the ones who were killing all the different denominations of people. (Bachrach 58).
The Holocaust took place during the years 1933 to 1945. It was an attempt to remove all of the Jews, and other smaller groups such as homosexuals and Jehovah's Witnesses, which lived in the country of Germany. The events that took place during the holocaust were lead by a German man named Adolf Hitler. Schindler's List is a film about the Holocaust from a man named Oskar Schindler's perspective as a leader of a concentration camp. The film displays the five stages of the Holocaust.
