The reason for concentration camps is because of the Jewish faiths and customs (Yeatts 14). Even people with their own political views and social attitudes were sent to the concentration camps (Kornblum 927). The camps were meant for people suffer in many ways. One way was hard labor, the Nazis would make the people in the concentration camps work very hard while starving them. Another way was very deadly science experiments (Yeatts 14).
The Nazis had planned this all out. An entire state bureaucracy was created with the task of make sure everything went smoothly as they killed over 6 million Jews and 5 million other undesirables. Undesirables were homesexuals, POWs, Gypsies, and Poltical Prisoners. The Nazis developed the technology and
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
Essentially, even though French and Germans were enemies during WWII, and only one country ended up winning, they both received negative outcomes from the
“Adolf Hitler announced the Nuremberg Laws on September 15, 1995” (“ Nuremberg Laws”). This was when the laws were released and when everything had changed for the Jewish people. Also, when these laws were released it had also caused the Jewish people to feel defenseless because they had gotten their freedom and rights stolen from them. These law basically helped the Germans overpower the Jewish people. Last but not least, the Nuremberg laws had affect the Holocaust in multiple ways.
The stories of what happened in the Auschwitz camps are very saddening. The liberation of the camps were just as bad. People were put on trains and they froze or starved to death. All this happened because Adolf Hitler decided to blame the loss of a war on people who really had no part of it. The whole experience of the Holocaust is something that is that should be continued to learn about and
The Holocaust’s Importance Even though the Enlightenment brought and encouraged religious toleration, some people interpreted some of its ideas wrongly. The incorrect interpretation of Darwin’s theory of evolution and other sociological conceptions gave rise to some racial ideas like Social Darwinism, Fascism, Nazism. After WWI, the German Veteran Adolf Hitler blamed Jews for the defeat. He also predicted a global war on Jews in his book “Mein Kampf,” My Struggle.
These acts were being permitted because people were just not speaking up and letting it happen. The Nazis and Hitler wanted more than what they had so they took from people. The Jews were hated because people are believing things that were not true. It was not just then it also happening now the Holocaust may have been a big event but Silent Majority, Discrimination, and Hate has not changed at all. The Nazi’s of Germany were greedy because they believed Jewish people were the reason they did not have money.
It did give prisoners power to help fellow inmates, but it was still a highly oppressive system. It implies that certain minorities were more or less worthy of human rights than others. The Nazis took away minority rights, individuality, and freedom. They gave like-minded people authority and essentially exterminated those who weren’t on their side, thus deepening their echo chamber of antisemitism. The fact that the Nazis saw people different than them as less than human is the most upsetting to me.
Another downside of being privately owned is the Jewish Virtual Library simply does not have a research budget anywhere close to the USHMM. I also find the USHMM’s lower estimate to be more likely because the Witnesses often experienced better treatment in concentration camps than other persecuted groups. German Jehovah’s Witnesses were still considered ethnic Germans by many Nazi’s. This supposed superiority to other imprisoned groups meant the often received better treatment. Many Witnesses became personal servants for Nazis, which was a much better option than other prisoners had.
Roosevelt, the military potential of an uncontrolled fission chain reaction. By February of the following year, $6,000 was awarded to start the research. While many of the scientists fled to America during the Holocaust, the Manhattan Project enable many exceptional scientists from Germany. The Manhattan Project was also aided by help from the UK and Canada. The United Nations gave an abundance of contribution to get scientists from Germany to safety and help supervise the project.
Unfortunately, some of the children were rounded up and secretly sterilized, some were subject to terrible medical experiments, and some simply mysteriously “disappeared.” The mixed race also had a lot of trouble with finding jobs and were even turned down when attempting to join their military. Not only were children victimized in Germany but adult African Germans were also treated horribly. Many were sent to internment camps and some were even murdered by the SS. Afro-Germans are not very known of, but they were a big part of the horrible actions Hitler took to please himself (Blacks during the Holocaust).
He received a doctorate in anthropology and medicine in Munich University, as he began his career as a researcher. Initially, he was assigned as a battalion medical officer during the start of World War II, then was transferred into the concentration camp services in the early year of 1943, as he was assigned into Auschwitz. In Auschwitz, he saw an opportunity to start genetic research with human test subjects. He focused mostly on twins, and had no regard to him hurting any of them. He later fled to South America, where he stayed the rest of his life.
According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, eugenics is: “a science that deals with the improvement (as by control of human mating) of hereditary qualities of a race or breed”. ("Definition of Eugenics by Merriam-Webster") The most common example of this concept would be the Holocaust, which was the extermination of Jewish people and others deemed “unfit” for society in World War Ⅱ. But little do many know, the Nazi’s were not the only people practicing eugenics in the early 1900’s, eugenics was being practiced in the United States long before the Holocaust. The American Eugenics Society aimed to educate American people on the science of Eugenics.
