Only in Aushwitz, over 1 million jews found their death (USHMM). Siblings, twins and people with different physical or mental disabilities were taken to a part of the camp where doctors conducted experiments on them. They were drugged, injected with different substances, and held in starvation, which led to permanent consequences for the health of the ones who were saved or managed to get away (USHMM). Holocaust survivors who were experimented on have reported kidney and lung failures, development of cancer, etc. Concentration camps were the peak of human cruelty - they separated families, exploited people beyond their abilities, and showed no mercy towards anyone.

“We received no food. We lived on snow; it took the place of the bread.” (Wiesel pg 100) For every individuals hair that is kept in the case at the memorial museum in Auschwitz, needs a voice. These human beings were killed in horrible dehumanizing ways. They were ordered to either the gas chambers or the crematorium; or they died because of their bad health. “We did not know, as yet, which was the better side, right or left, which road led to prison and which led to the crematorium” (Wiesel pg 32) Innocent people were tricked into walking right into the gas chambers.
Even a century after slavery was outlawed in the United States, black people were still not seen as equals to whites. Jim Crow laws took an entire group of people that in all reality were not different than those enforcing these laws and made them feel as though they were worth less than animals. Even black people who worked incredibly hard to fight through racism and reach their goals weren’t afforded the same privileges as white people. An examination of the book “Coming of Age in Mississippi,” shows Moody’s strong belief on different races, and the Jim Crow laws and beliefs by those living in the South, it becomes clear that racism made and still makes a very negative impact not just on a black person 's emotions and thoughts but on their ability to live the life they want without interruption or discrimination from
In 1915, a Jewish businessman Leo Frank was falsely accused of killing a worker, Mary Phlegem, in the pencil factory he managed. When the Georgia governor reduced Frank’s death sentence to life imprisonment due to lack of evidence, a mob dragged him and lynched him. He was given a posthumous pardon decades later when the evidence pointed to a janitor at the factory. Leo Frank tragedy caused “a ripple effect of fear among Jewish immigrants and Jewish Americans” (Anti-semitism in America). The lynching of Leo Frank was the beginning of two long decades of prejudicsm and hatred towards Jewish Americans in interwar America.
The Nazi’s and the swatzika are very bad things. The Nazi’s killed over six million Jewish men, women, and children and 60 million people died in World War II which lasted for six years. Adolph Hitler was voted in as German Chancellor in 1933. He then created the Nazi party with its Swastika as a symbol for the Nazi party meaning racial purity. An evil disgusting dictator named Adolf Hitler built concentration camps and tortured and killed millions and millions of innocent people including men, women, and children.
After slavery, African Americans in the south were in a time of change. Though they were free from slavery, whippings, and auctions, I believe life became difficult for them even after slavery ended. Racism began to grow increasingly, as many could not accept the fact that there was no more slavery. It became stricter when the government in the South enforced laws called Black Codes. Those laws were set to grant only certain rights to people of color.
A big part of our history is the challenges different races had to face when fighting for their rights. There are groups in today’s society that are still battling oppression, even though they were granted rights by our government. It seems like when one door opens, another closes right in their face. One race that had to deal with oppression, and is still dealing with it today, is African Americans. Africans Americans were brought over to the United States to be slaves for Caucasian people.
Racism was stronger in the south than in the north and Emmett Till was walking into an environment he had never encountered before. Fourteen-year-old Emmett Till was murdered in cold blood on August 28, 1955, after he was accused of flirting with a white married proprietor of a small grocery store. What Till was accused of violating the code of conduct for an African American male in the south. After the event Roy Bryant, husband of the woman from the grocery store, and J.W. Milam, his half-brother, kidnapped Emmett Till from his home.
Another was the death of a 60-year-old black man named John Dukes, who was killed by whites in revenge for Dukes shooting a white constable. Dukes was hanged and even set on fire by the mob. Because of these events, and many other previous ones, Senator Wagner requested that the federal government do something. However, the Attorney General said that they could not become involved in state government issues, unless the federal government allowed it. What was even more disappointing was the fact that no anti-lynching bill had been passed on the federal level.
Nazi camps starved the Jews until they were considered “human skeletons” and could not even walk. Second, some Jews had to fall from great heights for a job. A job for Jews was sometimes to fall from high places so the SS could see how high somebody could be dropped until they broke a bone. Finally, concentration camps were not immune to disease. After put in the camps, Jews had their head shaved.
After the awareness of the slaves’ capabilities and the living in communities with slaves, white people in the North that still supported slavery changed their stance after seeing first hand that black people, not just the few free blacks, were similar to everyone else. After the Underground Railroad, moral code came into question, and with the Constitution demanding all people be equal, the people in the North could no longer bear to uphold slavery. The Underground Railroad was risky and dangerous, but it furthered racial equality by creating a coalition against slavery and by freeing African
Did you know that eleven million people died in the holocaust? Six million of those people were Jews. The Jews were captured and taken to concentration camps because the Nazis simply hated them.
