Not only was this camp filled with political prisoners but with artists, various intellectuals, some handicapped, and many homosexuals. According to Hitler, these types of people were considered unfit for the community of Germany. The first prisoners were approximately 200 Communists who were taken into what was called "protective custody," and were called the "enemies of the state." According to The Holocaust Research Project, Dachau became a useful training facility for the SS (or Schutzstaffel, which is German for “Protective organization”) and Dachau saw those with different convictions as lower-ranking and to deal with them, Nazi’s would kill them. Prisoners were used in medical experiments as well as slave labor to produce
The doctors used methods such as, scalding baths, sleeping bags, and even forcing copulation. The best method they found to work was to place the victim in a warm bath and raise the temperature slowly. While its not known how many people the Nazis used for these experiments it is know that between 80 to 100 people were killed during the tests. The research for hypothermia has been used on and off in modern situations but it is still neglected a lot of the time. It has been proven that the cold kills 20 times more people every year than the
But, unfortunately, they did not. General Patton had them” (“The Nuremberg Laws”). Even though the original copy of the Nuremberg Laws were not present at the trial, they were important evidence in the trial. “The so-called "Nuremberg Laws"— a crucial step in Nazi racial laws that led to the marginalization of German Jews and ultimately to their segregation, confinement, and extermination—were key pieces of evidence in the trials, which resulted in 12 death sentences and life or long sentences for other Third Reich leaders” (“The Nuremberg Laws”). Nuremberg, Germany was known as the center of the Nazi movement.
Many years ago, there was a dark time called the Holocaust. It was the time when Adolf Hitler was elected as the president of Germany and he started convincing the Germans that the Jews were the ones that were the problem for everything, and if they got rid of them then life would be better for Germany. Hitler started a group he called Nazis. They were soldiers of his that did as he said, such as the many terrible things to Jews, handicapped, aged, sick, and many many more. After the war Nazis were evil people who were mostly taken to trial to be killed, jailed, or released unless they got away to another unknown country (www.hawaii.edu/powerkills/NAZIS:CHAP1.HTM).
On December of 1946, an American military tribunal proceeds against German physicians who conducted medical experiments on thousands of concentration camp prisoners without consent, which in most cases resulted in disfigurement, permanent disability, or death (“Human Experiments in History”, n.d.). The experiment conducted during the Holocaust included attempts to genetically manipulate twins, malaria experiments, immunization experiments, exposure to chemical gasses and diseases, freezing experiments, among other cruel experiments. The crimes were formed as part of the Nuremberg Trial and in 1948 it led to the development of the Nuremberg Code of medical ethics. The code states that “The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential,” and that the benefits of research must overweight the risks (Shuster, 1997). Additionally, the code states that experiments will avoid all unnecessary physical and mental suffering and injury (Shuster, 1997).
Tom was accused of raping a white woman who was Mayella Ewell, Mayella said he raped her while he was helping her with chores. She later on tells the readers that it was false allegations. The reason why she didn 't tell the truth at her first trial was because, Mayella was afraid of being embarrassed because she kissed a black male. She rather have an innocent man get charged with a crime than that. “However, Robinson was transferred from the state prison to Maycomb 's county jail on Saturday, two days before he stood trial on Monday, and Atticus had to defend him against a lynch mob”.
At first, the Nazis reserved their harshest persecution for political opponents such as Communists or Social Democrats, but then they spread their hatred towards all types of “unfit” groups that threatened the German race. They then opened the first official concentration camp at Dachau (near Munich) in March 1933 which later became one of the major killing grounds of the Holocaust. Dachau was under the control of Heinrich Himmler, head of the Schutzstaffel(SS) and later the chief of German police. By July 1933, all of the concentration camps held about 27,000 people in what the Nazi Party called “protective custody.” Also to promote support of the party 's message and strength, they would hold huge Nazi rallies and symbolic acts such as the
The experiments performed by German physicians during World War II were torturous, unethical, and unreasonable when considering better ways in which the research could have been conducted. Experiments were performed on non-consenting camp prisoners by physicians attempting to improve soldier survival rates and further knowledge in lesser-explored medical fields (Coleman et al. 16). Experimentation to find a cure for Malaria was performed from February 1942 to April 1945, during which time prisoners were infected with malaria and treated with different drugs in order to find the best cure. Coleman notes, “Over 1,000 involuntary subjects were used in these experiments.
Argument against Capital Punishment -This source is very factual as it provides relevant information: it also gives an insight into capital punishment. This source of information was extremely beneficial for my speech as contributed strong figures and statics which made this source stand out from the rest, it includes facts for example on the topic of innocence as it states ‘130 people sentenced to death have been found innocent since 1973’. It provides information for and against the penalty and also includes a varied amount of interesting points which I hadn’t previously known or thought about before such as ‘brutalising society’ where it had briefed me on the effect capital punishment has on the society for example the murder rates increase. I decided that this was relevant to my speech as it was I point I had not thought of before and was very original and enabled me to confirm my point of view
In life being free rather than safe shows how your rights and opinions matter. The Holocaust, same sex marriage, and having a torn ACL shows that it 's better to be unrestricted, because being guarded stops you from being your own person. The Holocaust was an example of being held guarded against their will. Millions of people were killed because of racism and those who were easily targeted. Being held guarded during the Holocaust caused suffrage and deaths.
“The first concentration camps were made to detain people without trial, usually under harsh conditions.” (www.theholocaustexplained.org) The Nazis did this because they discriminate and hate the Jews. “German authorities established camps to handle the masses of people arrested as alleged subversives.” (www.ushmm.org) Germany blamed the Jews for their loss of World War I. “Concentration camps held two purposes, these purposes were to demoralize and dehumanize the prisoners.” (www.owlspace-ccm.rice.edu) The Nazis tortured them and made them break on the inside. It was sad to be taken to a concentration camp because it meant that it was the end of your life.
