Even though Corrie Ten Boom was sent to a concentration camp along with many others, she was arguably the most important woman in World War ll. She saved thousands of lives and brought many to the Lord. Cornelia Arnolda Johanna Ten Boom was born in Amsterdam Netherlands on April 15, 1892. She lived in in a watch shop that she and her family inherited before her first birthday. Her father was always working in the shop so above the shop was a home that Corrie Ten Boom and her siblings stayed in most of the day while being watched by their aunts (“Corrie Ten Boom,” World Biographies).
Working day and night, she slaved away to every need or want that “The Mom” or “The Dad” sent her way. This continued until the morning of April 9, 2002, when Shyima was rescued at the age of 12, 6 months away from turning 13. It took time for her to trust the police and men in general, but eventually with the help of patience and understanding people like Mark, she began to
The successes of the revolt were that many people escaped and that the Nazis were beaten. This would leave a mark in history. The challenges of the revolt were that they had keep the plan a secret until the last moment, they had to lure the officers into a trap without them suspecting anything, and out of the 300 people that escaped, only about 50 survived. Those 50 people had to avoid getting shot at, getting blown up by a mine, or getting killed in the forest. They went through a lot of challenges and risked their lives to make this plan work.

Good deeds in life happen for a reason, and I believe this event happened because her God knew she would
Throughout her speech, Ann recalls the oppression, fear, and despair that she felt during the most unjust and unjustified crime in the human history. At first, oppression was a major factor that prevented Jews from trying to save their lives. Given the small number of inhabitants in the village where Ann was located building a ghetto was not necessary. A verbal warning was enough from the Nazis to erase any thought of escaping to save
Historians have been debating how the spirit triumphed during the Holocaust for years. The spirit triumphed through the Holocaust through many, many distractions, nature, and the support and love of family and friends. The Nazis had killed, and enslaved so many Jewish people in concentration camps. But, the Nazis couldn’t take their spirit from them.
Holocaust Rescues The Holocaust was a tragic event that caused the death of many individuals. Most Jews in the Holocaust couldn’t survive by themselves without being captured and that’s where rescuers come in. Rescuers during the Holocaust took in Jews, giving them a hiding place, food, and shelter, kept someone being a Jew a secret, or just hid someone’s star of David to save them from the authority. Even though rescuing a Jew in the Holocaust risked the Jew’s life, the rescuer’s life, and the rescuer’s family’s life, many continued to save lives of the Jews.

Who could have thought that the victims were most responsible for the Holocaust? After all, they were the targets of this abominable act; 6 million Jews, 9-18 million Soviets, 1.8 million Poles, and more groups with fewer casualties. This book, Night, is a memoir about a Jewish prisoner that goes by the name of Elie Wisel that survived this ordeal. After all, they had many opportunities to escape, repeal, or act.

From 1933 to 1945 one of the world’s most tragic even happen, the Holocaust. During that time period, millions of Jews were killed in concentration camps under Hitler’s orders called the “final solution.” While the war continued, people tried forming resistant groups to end the Axis powers from murdering the Jews. Individuals, resistant groups, and bystanders tried to end the Axis powers in many ways.
Throughout World War II from 1939-1945, many non-Jews risked their own lives to rebel against the actions and beliefs of the Nazi Holocaust. Although the majority of occupied Europe and Germany did not agree with the Nazi policies against Jews, they did very little to interfere and intervene as they knew it would lead to prosecution. This can be seen in both the extract from the Holocaust resource centre website, Yad Vashem (Yad Vashem, 2014), and a photograph taken in November of 1938 of residents in Nazi occupied Austria standing by and watching a Jewish cemetery ceremonial Hall burn (Documentation Centre of Australian Resistance, 2014).These sources both accurately depict how these bystanders were so terrified of the Nazi party and the power that they, that very few dared interfering as it would result in severe punishment.
