At the beginning of Night, Elie was someone who believed fervently in his religion. His experiences at Auschwitz and other camps, such as Birkenau and Buna have affected his faith immensely.

The Holocaust; probably one of the most brutal and horrifying genocides in the history of politics. It was the dark secret of Germany during World War II, As a result, the defeat of the Nazi’s sparked a huge newcomming, and with it, the formation of the United Nations. But that is not the main concern here. The events and documents that we have found about the Holocaust still horrify us today. Documentations such as the book Night by Elie Wiesel and the story of the White Rose show us how brutaly a person can treat one another, and the exents powerful people can go to in order to hold their power.
MK ULTRA also helped to advance important research that might have otherwise been lost to history. During World War Two Nazi scientists were able to test new drugs and mind control techniques on concentration camp victims. “In the late 1940’s Project Paperclip was a PR campaign designed to find Nazi scientists in hiding, once found, these scientists were offered the option of prison or continuing their research as a part of the MK ULTRA umbrella.”
I went from being happy and joyful to feeling a pit in my stomach. I always had an idea as to how terrible the Holocaust was. It was not until I stepped into the two exhibits that I truly felt the pain of the situation. Being surrounded by volunteers whose families were present, and even seeing some real life survivors changed the Holocaust from something I read in my textbook, to something that actually happened in real life to real people. I always felt the sadness that surrounded the topic.
The Japanese Internment Camps were United States controlled concentration camps during WWII for the accused Japanese-Americans, urged on by the paranoia citizens and ended by the Nisei’s loyalty. The establishment began by the relocation order, also known as Executive Order 9066. All of the American citizens of Japanese descent were relocated in a short period of time and endured the conditions of the war camps. An intern based army on the Allied side and two major court cases made the US reconsidered the Executive Order and shut down the internment camps. When Japan bombed Pearl Harbor in December, the citizens of America were terrified and blamed the Japanese-Americans.
After Germany’s loss in World War I, Adolf Hitler was appointed the chancellor of Germany. He blamed all the world’s problems on the Jews, and explained how they needed to be exterminated in his speech about International Jewry. During his speech, the crowd loved what he had to say, and they too believed that Jews were a menace to society. Hitler was able to persuade them that killing them would do the world a favor, which established an ethnic tension (Doc I). This shows how genocide is also a result from rivalries between different groups of people.
From the holocaust documentary ”the Jewish were put in large containers and gas was pumped in with cyanide” The germans killed millions in the gas containers. In the american interview”the Japanese were given common things like food and education” although not amazing the Japanese were given food and schools. From Anne Frank 's diary” we heard some of the things the Nazis did to the others. We were encouraged to always take precautions if anything happens.
The Jews were forced to move to the ghettos because the Nazis wanted to limit Jews freedom (Blohm Holocaust Camps 10). The Nazi convinced people that the Jews were infectious and this was one of their favorite tactics to use (Altman The Holocaust Ghettos 9). They used that tactic to say that they were moving Jews into “quarantine” to protect the public from disease (Altman The Holocaust Ghettos 9). Unfortunately, the Jews were only moved to ghettos for the short-term solution of extermination (Altman The Holocaust Ghettos 13).
They supplied Britain, Soviet Union and China with war materials and even deployed troops to Iceland, relieving Britain soldiers. However, the sanctions against Japan only outraged them leading to the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Americans were entering the war by joining the RAF Squadron in Britain. On December 7, 1941 a surprise attack on Pearl Harbor by the Japanese changed
Documented in Address Unknown, Fritz Gerlich, a propaganda journalist, attacked Adolf Hitler and Nazi ideals via his skill for writing (Address Unknown 51-52). Gerlich audaciously revealed Hitler’s corrupt political practices as contradictory to the genuine German spirit which caused the SS to imprison and eventually kill Gerlich at Dachau (51-53). By persecuting any political opponent to Hitler, the Nazi party eliminated any posing threats to their rising power. Without any challengers, the neutral victims of the Holocaust were at the hands of the Nazis. Before fully implementing the Final Solution, the Nazi party first tested the waters.
During the Holocaust families were torn apart in places known as concentration camps. For example, these camps, forced the Jews into slave labor and harsh conditions. Six million Jews died during the Holocaust mostly because of concentration camps. Heinrich Himmler was influential during the Holocaust because of his monopoly over the police and Nazi party.
The Holocaust was one of the most terrifying events that had scared the history of the Jewish people and will forever leave a mark in history as well. During the Holocaust millions of Jewish people were sent to concentration camps or killing centers to be exterminated. At the camps Jews were beaten, called names, and were treated badly as well. Also, in the camps and killing centers the SS guards would use a stick, their hand, or their foot to brutally beat the Jews. The names the Germans usually called the Jews were fools, devils, and much more.
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,
