The Holocaust Concentration Camps: Auschwitz The Holocaust was a horrid experience. The Holocaust came about because Adolf Hitler was upset over the loss of World War I. Hitler blamed the Jews for Germany’s loss in World War I, and he wanted to take over Germany, with that came him thinking he had to get rid of all the Jewish people. So after the loss of World War I, he tried and succeeded with the extermination of most of the Jews.
The lack of action was most likely because of the Allied focus on winning the war, but was also the general misunderstanding with which news of the Holocaust was in denial and disbelief that such thing could be happening on such a large scale. At Auschwitz, more than 2 million people were killed in the process of gathering people to start the camp. A large population of Jewish and non-Jewish prisoners worked in the camp there; though Jews were poisoned, thousands of others died of hunger or illness. During the summer of 1944, even as the events of D-Day (June 6, 1944), a large population of Hungary’s Jewish was forced to go to Auschwitz, and
January 30, 1933 was the day that President Hindenburg appointed Adolf Hitler Chancellor of Germany, which was the beginning of the Holocaust (Google History). In Source A, a young Jewish girl, Anne Frank, wrote in her diary that the Gestapo was taking away Jewish friends and acquaintances and sending them away to concentration camps. She listened to the English radio to later find out that they were being killed and gassed. Source B reveals, that in the steps to genocide, people classified as different are prohibited rights and personal honor. They are referred to as “sub-human, while the Nazis referred to Jews as vermin” (Source B).
These German citizens had the opportunity to protest, or question the Nazi officials before the war got too bad. But now, all they could do was watch these injustices. In conclusion, people must interfere against those in control to stop injustices from
How can one see so much innocent blood flow and say nothing, do nothing and await the same death oneself? We are compelled to go under so miserably, so pitilessly…” (Unknown).

Dehumanization of Jews Anti-Semitism has existed in Europe for many centuries but Hitler enhanced anti-Semitism during his dictatorship of Germany. Anti-Semitism, a form of Jewish racism came into action with Hitler’s support of nationalism in Germany. It changed the way the Germans saw Jewish people. The theme “how we see things” demonstrates itself through the contrast of perspective between the Nazis and their Jewish captives. Henry David Thoreau quotes that “the question is not what you look at, but what you see” which explains that different people see different things from the image of the same thing.
Even while watching his father get battered Elie thought to himself, “I kept quiet. In fact I was thinking of how to get farther away so that I would not be hit myself. This is what concentration camp life had made of me”(Wiesel 63). The Nazis physically beat the lives out of the Jews.

During this time, an infamous Adolf Hitler rose to power, promising a new and prosperous Germany and accused the Jewish population for causing Germany’s problems. Hitler’s rise to power marked a shift from mere discrimination to outright violence against the Jewish people (Wiener).

Maus happens to give us a good look at one of the most important events in history: the Holocaust. After World War 2 hostility towards jews began to die down.

2 camps: Nazi camps and Japanese Internment camps. There was long hatred for Jews in European history. Hitler was the chancellor of Germany with death camps and concentration camps, and America had Internment camps. Innocent people were put in these camps.

With that being said he made it a law that there was no longer allowed to be intermarriage between the Germans and the Jews, Jews could not teach Germans, could not cut their hair, could not be a doctor for them, and could not associate with them.

If I was going to kill myself, this was the time. ... fifteen steps to go... No. Two steps from the pit, we were ordered to turn left and headed into barracks. (33-34)” Elie was willing to kill himself just to avoid the impending mass burning he thought he was fated to go to, and by tricking the Jews they managed to severely demoralize and drive some to actually commit suicide; they cared not if the Jews died, they were of no significant value.
