The Holocaust was the mass genocide of mainly Jewish people and the “undesirables”. The jewish people were dehumanized by the Nazis. All of the people that were persecuted in the mass genocide were either placed into death camps, work camps, or the ghetto when waiting to get to a death camp or work camp.
The Holocaust, which began in 1933 was directed by Adolf Hitler. During the Holocaust, the Jewish people had to live in prison camps called “concentration camps” where they were forced to do physical labor. In the realistic-fiction novel Night by Elie Wiesel, the narrator describes what life was like during the Holocaust.
During the time Hitler was beginning to rise to power, a huge population of Germany was supporting the newly coming leader Adolf Hitler. Little did they know the horrible devastating mass murder of the Jewish people Hitler called “The Holocaust”. The Holocaust started on January 1933 and ended on May 8, 1945. The Holocaust was made purposely to eliminate the Jews and any other person and religion that got in Hitler’s and the Nazis way. Many ways were used to kill and eliminate the Jews, one of the most brutal ways was when Nazis would shove prisoners of the concentration camps or the death camps and slowly heat them to death. Concentration camps were camps where Jews would be worked and barley fed. Sometimes they would be even starved to death, many prisoners would also often be hung or shot in front of prisoners so the prisoners wouldn’t try to escape from the concentration camp. While on the other hand if anyone got sent to death camp it meant they were there for one reason and one reason only, to die. Inside the death camps were usually huge ovens Jews would be cooked alive in, there would also be giant chambers that Nazis filled with people and spread
The Holocaust was an execution of 8 million Europeans, and “ 6 million of the Europeans killed were Jewish women, children, and men that were brutally murdered” (Strahinich 7). It “was a catastrophe in our modern history” (Strahinich 7) now staining our history pages with hundreds of innocent people’s blood, forever lost in the grounds of the Holocaust. It took “place in Poland, Lithuania, Belarus, Latvia, and Czechoslovakia” (Altman 9) is some of the places where hundreds died. Thanks to “Adolf Hitler” (Strahinich 8) and “the Nazis government” (Strahinich 10), they “plunged most of Europe” (Allen 7) into turmoil, taking lives that did not need to go. 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 Jews were forced from their houses to go to live in ghettos away from all society(An Introductory History of the Holocaust-Jewish Virtual Library). The ghettos were surrounded by barbed wire and high walls so the Jews couldn’t leave(An Introductory History of the Holocaust-Jewish Virtual Library).

In 1933, Jews in Germany were about 525,000 (1%) of the total German population(The Holocaust-World War 2). Between 1933 and 1939, hundreds of thousands of the Jews who could leave Germany, did, those who couldn’t, stayed in fear(The Holocaust-World War 2). Evidence has shown hatred towards the Jews long before the Holocaust(The Holocaust-World War 2). Hitler blamed the Jews for the defeat of the war in 1918(The Holocaust-World War 2). After the death of President Paul Von Hidenburg in 1934, Hitler made himself Germany’s supreme

While the United States was getting to be involved in the war in the Pacific, back in Europe the real aim of the Nazi armed forces was turning out to be progressively clear. As more of eastern Europe fell into German hands, the country turned into a kind of backyard for the Nazis, where the ugliest parts of their arrangement could be diverted out away from the scrutinising public. By late 1941, the first Jews from Germany and western Europe were assembled and transported, alongside numerous different minorities, to death camps in Poland, Czechoslovakia, Lithuania, Latvia, Ukraine, and western Russia, where they were initially used as slaves and later killed.
