In the camps more than one million people died during World War II, other sources say 1.1 million died in Auschwitz. There are many reasons of death caused by the Nazis in Auschwitz such as in the gas chambers, the Nazis use Zyklon-B as a way to murder the Non-Aryans, once they were murdered they were put into a crematorium which was used to burn the bodies. If the Jews or Non-Aryans disrespected or did not follow the Nazi’s commands they were either shot or hanged if the non-Aryans were not fed enough they either starved to death or got sick and died. One source said 2.1 to 2.5 million Non-Aryans died in the gas chambers. On January 27, 1945, the Soviet army entered Krakow and liberated the Auschwitz Death Camps.
As soon as they arrived, they underwent processing to determine whether or not they were fit for forced labor. If they were deemed unfit, they were immediately sent to the gas chambers for execution. To deceive the victims, the gas chambers were disguised as shower installations. In early October of 1944, hundreds of prisoners that were scheduled for execution rebelled, which resulted in the death of three guards and destroying a crematorium and gas chamber. The Germans quickly got a hold of the situation by killing almost all of prisoners involved in the revolt and hung the Jewish women who smuggled in the explosives used to destroy the crematorium and gas chamber.
In his studies Ritter claimed Roma were once Aryan and had originated from India but had been corrupted by lesser races during their long migration to Europe. Eventually Roam became subject to the 1935 Nuremberg laws and were placed in concentration camps and proceeded to be sterilized. The Nazi party prosecuted many racial and social groups during Nazi Germany. The Nazi party went to extreme measures to follow their belief of social Darwinism and this resulted in the mass genocide of millions of
First, the Jews were selected for concentration camps and then killed for their religion. "Today I have nothing but dismal and depressing news to report. Our many Jewish friends and acquaintances are being taken away in droves." (Paragraph 4, Anne Frank). The soldiers of Hitler found as many of the Jews as they could to kill, because of their religion.
World War two was an awful time for everyone. People died and went through tough times.One place that was also awful and where millions of Jews were killed was concentration camps.Concentration camps first came around after Hitler was elected as Chancellor. In the camps there wasn 't a lot of food or water so people, mostly died of starvation and dehydration. The Germans established 20,000 camps to imprison Jews.In this research paper I will give you information about concentration camps in ww2. At first concentration camps were used to imprison political opponents of the Nazis.
They began to pass laws that specifically targeted Jews, such as making all Jews wear a big yellow star to identify themselves, as well as forbidding Jews from riding bikes. This led to taking Jews from their homes and sending them to concentration camps, where they were experimented on, gassed, and put in horrible conditions. As the World War II neared the end, the Allied Nations began liberating the concentration camps, which eventually became the end of the war. The Holocaust is considered a genocide, and though it is one of the most famous, it is not the only
The fiery altar upon which the history of our people and the future of mankind were meant to be sacrificed.” -Elie Weisel In 1942 both Krystyna Chiger and Pavel Friedmann, and their families were forced to live in the ghetto because they were Jewish. The Nazis forced them all to live in the ghetto, because of their religion. So they all tried everything they could to survive, because Adolf Hitler and his Nazis were killing thousands of people by the second. There are many similarities between Pavel and Krystyna’s stories. Both of them are Jewish.
The Holocaust is a historical event that the murdered around 6 million Jews and 5 million non-Jews. The Jews were also used for harsh labor, experiments, and starvation (Steele 6-7). The reason for this mass murder was that a leader during the time named Adolf Hitler wants to make his country an anti-semitic country (Steele 22). This tragedy took place all over Europe the main location was in Auschwitz, Germany (Blohm 6). Jews were a main target in The Holocaust, but some other victims were Roma, Sinti, disabled, and any other opposing religions (Steele 7).
The paradox of being half ugly is shown all throughout Hitler 's actions. In WWII the entire Jewish population was the target for Hitler and his Nazis party. This led to millions of jews being persecuted and killed. One example of the ugliness of the war would be the discrimination and the hatred of other races. While in power Hitler created concentration camps to contain Jews and people not of German background.
