In retaliation to Jews for killing a German policeman in self defense on July 31, 1940 the nazis carried out a public mass execution(“Holocaust”). This day was later named “Bloody Wednesday”. They were tortured by anxiety, were insecure of the present, torn between hope and despair, and felt helpless. There were many people who were persecuted during the Holocaust that weren’t Jewish: spouses of Jews, Roma Gypsies, resisters, priests and pastor, Jehovah Witnesses, political enemies, homosexuals, the disabled, and African-German descent. Spouses of Jews had to choose between getting a divorce or being sent to concentration camps along with their Jewish Spouse.
A cold war between the United Stated and the Soviet Union began in the result of the War. Wars would follow this one called “surrogate wars.” World War II lasted for 12 years. Hitler had built countless camps where 11 million people were murdered. 6 million of those were Jews.
Because of Hitler 's actions over 11 million were killed, 1 million of them being children. I think that the Holocaust was horrible and wrong and hopefully we will not have to experience anything like this again. I learned a lot from the books Night and The Book Thief. They made me realize how horrible the Holocaust was and what it was like to experience it. The Holocaust was a gruesome time where millions were killed, people were tortured, they were used in experiments and families were separated.
Some people even come straight from being transferred out of their homes (Steele 37). Concentration camps were death camps for women and children. For men, the camp was forced labor and starvation (Steele 37). To exterminate the women and children they had several gas chambers (Concentration).
The Nazi’s and the swatzika are very bad things. The Nazi’s killed over six million Jewish men, women, and children and 60 million people died in World War II which lasted for six years. Adolph Hitler was voted in as German Chancellor in 1933. He then created the Nazi party with its Swastika as a symbol for the Nazi party meaning racial purity.
People that could have Stopped the Holocaust The Nazis killed two-thirds of all the Jews living in Europe. The Holocaust affected many people all around the world. It mostly affected the Jews the most. Many people including Allied countries, SS officers are responsible for this horrific event.
In the “Introduction to the Holocaust” from Holocaust Encyclopedia, the author explains the history of the Holocaust. The Holocaust was an organized process of maltreatment to rid people who the Nazis considered imperfect, beginning in Germany in January 1933 to May 1945. The Nazi’s and their empire believed that they were above the Jews, Homosexuals, and Gypsies. As a result, a total reaching into the millions of Jews and non-Jews perished or were victimized from the horrors of the Holocaust. In the aftermath of the Holocaust, many of the survivors found help in displaced persons camps provided by the Allied Forces and many Jews emigrated to Israel as well as the United States and other countries.
The Holocaust was a traumatic and horrendous time for those who suffered and perished. Learning and talking about the Holocaust to this day, is very hard to believe that it ever happened because of the cruel acts that were done to innocent people. Throughout the Holocaust, many people didn’t agree of what Hitler was doing and they decided to take a stand and take action. The resistance groups made a huge difference in the Holocaust to make a change. These people risked their lives for others that were in desperate need of survival.
The Holocaust, a memorable yet tragic event in history that resulted in millions and millions of deaths among innocent individuals. All age groups between young and old were separated from their families, stored into railcars, and sent to concentration camps where they will be tortured……..to death. But the mass killing ended so many years ago, right?Well guess again because it seems in North Korea, the familiar death camps has taken a tole on its people. Between the early to mid 1940’s, over 6 million Jews would spend their lasts moments crowded by complete strangers who were dying from starvation, toxic chemicals, and dreadful diseases.
The Holocaust Introduction to the Holocaust In Greek, holocaust comes from the word holokauston which means “sacrifice by fire”. A holocaust is the destruction or slaughter on a mass scale, especially caused by fire or nuclear war. The holocaust that happened during World War II can be defined as a systematic, bureaucratic, state-sponsored persecution and murder of millions of people (mainly Jews) by the Nazi regime and its collaborators. It occurred in Europe within the Nazi borders and in the countries surrounding it between, January 30, 1933 – May 8, 1945 The Motives and Causes Behind the Holocaust
Do you believe we should remember the Holocaust? It is clear that everyone deserves to know the truth of the Holocaust, the effect it has on majority of the people, and its important place in history. Also, the Holocaust should be remembered out of respect for those who had passed away, or to honor those who had survived. There is no doubt that many people have no clue as to what happened in the Holocaust time period. Every human being should know about the Holocaust, yet you would be surprised how much of the world’s population knows nothing about the Holocaust.
Rescue During the Holocaust millions of Jews were persecuted for multiple years for no reason. Some were worked and beaten until death. During the time of prosecution many people and countries worked hard to rescue the Jews. Individuals risked their life in order to rescue them.
The Jewish Holocaust is a very well known tragedy around the world. During the Jewish Holocaust many lives were lost and many people began to lose hope. This was a very horrible tragedy that affected many and continue to affect many to this day. The amount of lives that were lost or taken during the Holocaust was enormous. It is considered to be a masquer and will forever help to shape the world, whether it be good or bad.
During the years of 1933 to 1945, Adolf Hitler set up concentration camps to lock up Jews because Hitler thought that the Jews were the cause of Germany’s reparations. These camps killed six million innocent Jews. This event was known as the Holocaust. Children were enlisted into these camps, which separated them from their parents. Many Jews would never see their friends and family again, and some never learn of what happened to them.
The Holocaust is the most significant historical event that I have studied so far. This tragic event took place during World War II and only very few survivors lived to share their shocking experiences. I have read a few of these survivor’s stories, such as Night, by Elie Wiesel and it has personally impacted me and influenced my thinking in various ways. The Holocaust was the greatest act of hate, violence, and anti-semitism.
