On August 22, 1942, Inge and her parents were arrested and deported by German officers. They had to leave all of their possessions and move to a Czechoslovakian ghetto called Theresienstadt. Fortunately, the Auerbachers were allowed to stay together even through the terrible conditions and sanitation. Meanwhile, in the same town they were living, Germans began building gas chambers to exterminate all Jews living in Theresienstadt. On May 8 of 1945, all the Jews were freed including Inge and her family, by Soviet troops.
When he was younger his mom would feed poor strangers the same amount of food as they got, and she split it all equally (Giddens). There were 9.5 million Jews that lived in Europe at the time before the Holocaust (Burk). The places that had the most Jews in their population were Poland, Romania, Latvia, and Estonia (Burk). The Nazis seized power in 1933, and the majority of European Jews two out of every three would be dead after the Holocaust
He set up killing centers to quickly kill as many Jews as possible. 3 million people were killed in the killing centers alone. The first killing center was set up in Chelmno in December of 1941, but the largest one was Auschwitz (Killing Centers). Auschwitz was located right outside of the town Krakow. 1.3 million people died at Auschwitz, 1,095,000 of those being Jews.
After the war Nazis were evil people who were mostly taken to trial to be killed, jailed, or released unless they got away to another unknown country (www.hawaii.edu/powerkills/NAZIS:CHAP1.HTM). After the Germans had realized what a horrible thing they were doing, they had a war in which they all wanted the Nazis destroyed. Hundreds of Nazis were taken to trial, and the worst of them were put to death. However some of the Nazis weren’t as lucky as these before the real German police the Germans got hold of some Nazis and took
Anne Frank was just a young average girl when the Holocaust began. The Franks were forced into hiding when the Nazi leader, Adolf Hitler, demanded all Jews to be eliminated. In fact, many of them were sent to concentration camps to work, or to be gassed to death. The Frank family went into hiding with the Van Daans in a secret Annex in Otto Frank’s workplace. There
In his early 30’s, the Nazis began to force many Jewish families, along with the Radasky family, into the newly established ghettos. In the 1940s, the Nazis took away items of value and food from the Jews living in the ghettos. In 1941, Solomon’s mother and one of his sisters were killed for “lying” about having no valuables. Later, in April 1942, Solomon’s father died
Anne Frank was a girl who was hiding from the Germans during the Holocaust. After two years of hiding, she was killed and we know what her life was like because we have her diary. Genocide is the deliberate killing of a large group of people, especially those of a particular ethnic group or nation. The Holocaust was the killing of people with Jewish heritage by the Germans. After being exposed to multiple perspectives my understanding of genocide has changed because, I now know that there are more than one cause of genocide, how the support of other countries and their leaders have affected the victims of genocide, and how some stories can help you understand how it was like living during genocide.
In a five month time span, Winton and his rescuers successfully transported seven other trains. With eight trains full of children transferred out of the country, they had one more train to go. The ninth train was planned to go out on September 1, 1939, but on that day Hitler invaded Poland and blocked off all of the borders. This started World War II and Winton’s rescuing came to an end (“Sir Nicholas Winton”). A total of 669 children were saved due to Sir Nicholas Winton’s bravery (“Nicholas
INTRODUCTION From 1939 to 1945, the Nazis hunted and threatened with death all Jews children in the countries occupied by the Nazi army. When the Nazis came to power, the Jewish children became victims of anti-Semitic laws. During the War, 80% of Jew’s children, survived thanks to friends who hide them, neighbors or family members or by the resistance organizations. Many of them found refuge in the homes of non-Jewish people, others hidden in convent and colleges' boarding schools. Several of them wander through forests and villages, looking for food and relying on their own ingenuity and initiative.
“By 1945 I had lied, stolen, cheated, deceived, and even killed,” Marion told the audience assembled Rackham Auditorium for the seventh Wallenberg Lecture in October 1996. Marion even killed a policeman “I felt I had no choice, but to shoot him.” She kidnapped children to save them from being killed by the Germans. Many people knew what Marion was doing and many helped her save people and children by not telling what she was doing. She took long bike rides up North up north to provide food for the Jews. Sadly, she was pulled by German’s and ended up staying overnight in custody.

That night, around thirty people were arrested, but the Jews hiding in the secret room were never found. The Boom’s were transported to several camps and prisons.
