A train took them there and if they try to escape, they would be shot at. Jews had to work at concentration camps with horrible treatments while Jews at death camps would be killed by guns or poison gas and some would be experimented on. The Nazi’s tried to keep their mass killings of Jews a secret. However, when the war ended, the world was shown the horrific places the Nazi’s had built and the people were horrified of Germany’s actions. After the Holocaust, people built memorials for the people who had suffered or died in it.
Minute after minute. Shower after shower.” This is a quote from Death, the narrator of The Book Thief talking about the countless amount of Jewish people who died at the hands of the Nazi Regime in Germany during the Second World War. Zusak uses Death as the narrator to show how dire the situation was for any Jew or anybody who attempted to help them. This is effective as a technique because death has a sense of
Hitler liked this group so much that any other other group must die in order to make more room for the master race (Introduction). The Holocaust is a time in history when millions of people were persecuted in Europe by being sent to live in ghettos and eventually being deported to concentration camps where they were systematically annihilated until the Allied forces liberated the remaining survivors. The Ghettos were used to isolate Jews from society and make them feel like than out cast (Altman 14). Other reasons for moving the Jews to Ghettos are to control the population and to
Holocaust in Poland The Holocaust, also known as Shoah, was a genocide officially authorized and executed by the Third Reich during World War II. The Holocaust in German-occupied Poland involved the implementation of German policy of systematic and mostly effective annihilation of the indigenous Polish-Jewish population. Persecution of the Jews in Poland began immediately after the German invasion, which took place in 1939, particularly in urban areas. After the German attack on the Soviet sites in eastern Poland in June 1941, German police units, and special-task Einsatzgruppen, operated behind the front lines to shoot Himmler’s “dangerous elements” independently of the army, which consist of Jews and political opponents of Nazism. In the

They were captured and sent to concentration camps and extermination camps. The extermination camps were the worst and once people got their they were immediately killed. While in concentration camps they were used to do slave jobs and hoped to not be chosen to go on "marches" that they would never return from. The best way to get through this time was taking it day by day and having hope. The spirit does triumph and Anne Frank, Etty Hillesum, and Syvia Perlmutter are great examples of people who kept hope during the holocaust.
In Hitler’s mind the only way to reach complete world domination was to completely blow the other races out of the water (Bacharach 9). Hitler’s main target was the Jews (Meltzer 16). The Holocaust is a time in history when millions of people were persecuted in Europe by being sent to live in ghettos and eventually being deported to concentration camps where they were systematically annihilated until the Allied forces liberated the remaining survivors. Hitler considered the Jewish people an inferior race compared to his superior race (Meltzer 15-16). Jews started to be forced to move to ghettos as a second way of
Anne’s pain was expressed from what the Nazis did to other human beings in that concentration camp. Auschwitz is a name that will never be forgotten. Anne’s poem is a recreation of the horror she felt while touring that concentration camp. Anne was dealing with the unspeakable crimes committed against the Jewish people, in a very vivid physical setting. Anne talks about horrible things people can do too each other.
Death marches are not your typical joyful march. It is a sinister word with a sinister meaning, and can still bring shivers to the bone to those who experienced it and had survived. The Holocaust was the persecution of Jews by the Nazis. The Nazis believed that Germans were superior in comparison to other races, especially Jews, and so they built concentration camps to imprison and kill the Jews, homosexuals and other “racial enemies” of the Germans. The Soviets and the Allies, who were the liberators of the prisoners and the enemies of the Nazis, advanced to Germany and started liberating concentration camps, which drove Nazis to evacuate the prisoners.
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.
