With the Jews in the concentration camps, they were segregated from the general population. The healthy Jews were forced to do hard useless labors. It also made it easier for the Nazis to exterminate them(Steele 6). Jew politicians were moved there mainly so that they could be beaten for information(Strahinich 34). The Jews were moved to the concentration camps over a span 12 years.
The Minnesota Public Radio asked when and how to teach the Holocaust. Most said that students should absolutely learn about it because they don’t want future generations to think that such horrific acts did not happen. One woman in general said that genocide should be taught about but not specifically the holocaust because it was not the only event of it’s type to occur. This specific comment stood out to me as I had never heard of 2 of the events the woman spoke of: Fifth or sixth grade seems appropriate as many have already pointed out. Students should also be taught about the Native American holocaust, the Japanese American internment, slavery in the US, and Jim Crow lest they think this sort thing couldn't happen
In one of their first real experiences to the German soldiers they were forced to wait for hours while the German ss counted every Jewish citizen. In the story Ellie says at one point “ we were put in cattle cars 100 to a car” the people barely had space to breath in such tight space cramped against 100 other skinny people. They would wait in their own waste till they reach their next location throwing any dead out into the snow with no berial along the way. The respect in general really shows the lack of compassion from the Nazi. One can only hope that they really didn't think that jews were people, because it tears people up to see a dog abused much less a human being.
The Holocaust is the worst event recorded in history that caused people to question our humanity. Mankind 's worst qualities were shown throughout the whole twelve years. We became inhumane and sadistic. “One day when we had come to a stop, a worker took a piece of bread out of his bag and threw it into a wagon. There was a stampede.
Name:Marcos Hernandez Unit 2 Essay Did you know that during the Nazi’s reign 6 million European Jews were murdered. The Nazis were responsible for the many murders that occurred during their reign. The Nazi party was led by Adolf Hitler. They were a mass movement in Germany. The mass movement led Germany from 1933-1945.
The 20th century was a time of both success and sadness, triumph and tragedy, however, no event in European history has been quite as disheartening as the Nazi Holocaust, the darkest hour in European History. In less than a decade, The Nazi Party murdered well over 6,000,000 Jews. 6,000,000 mothers, children, fathers, even babies. This tragedy was justified on the grounds that the people of the Jewish population were subhuman, a burden to the Nazi regime. Similar to the Jewish population of Europe, the people of Salem in The Crucible, by Arthur Miller, were unfairly sentenced to death without any justifiable reasoning, other than suspicion and hatred.
Through studying this tragic event, the dangers of racism and prejudice will be clear. At ages most students learn about the holocaust, they struggle with loyalty, conformity, peer pressure, and belonging. The Holocaust may help teach youth to be aware of how to navigate these pressures of society and be able to make the correct decisions however difficult that may be (Why teach The Holocaust?). Stories of specific people from The Holocaust can engage students into a great lesson that they can take into their daily lives (Why teach about The
Something that was really interesting to me was that the guards from the camp took pictures. It was really upsetting to learn that families were split up and killed. I also learned that Jews were sent to ghettos which are places that split up the Jews from everyone else. It made me think about how much I have. The most important thing I learned from the museum was that once all of the survivors die, it’s our job to educate everyone about the Holocaust so history doesn’t repeat itself.
Slavery has almost ended, but it still goes on everywhere in the entire world. That's just another reason we need to teach kids about the holocaust, but don't stop there. We need to teach them about all the genocide events that took place. They need to learn about the flaws of their world, so they can fix them. In conclusion, the holocaust should be taught in schools because, it teaches students about the thin line between good and evil, it was a major event of history in the 20th century, they should know the past early so they can prepare for the future, and it helps them deal with the world they live in
