The life of a Holocaust survivor is often thought of as a life that is filled with sorrow and suffering. This is not a false belief, as it is based off of truth. The Holocaust was a time period in which suffering lay at every corner. It was a major tragedy that demonstrates the dangers we humans hold when we fail to be tolerant and accepting of others. The Holocaust was an event happening before the start of the second World War and was caused when Hitler managed to convince people that the Jews were responsible for the events that had transpired.
On April 11, 1945, Harry J. Herder Jr. and his company discovered one of the many secret horrors of World War II that dotted the European landscape; the Buchenwald concentration camp. The battle hardened man who had seen his fair share of death and human suffering surveyed the camp with a sinking feeling of dread in the pit of his stomach. Before his eyes lay human beings so starved they could not pick themselves up off of their bunks, children who had never seen the outside of the camp fence, partially clothed bodies and shaved heads. Shocked and disgusted, Harry J. Herder Jr. and two of his comrades then took a deeper tour of the camp. Eerie, and abandoned by the German soldiers lay the “medical rooms” with human organs floating in jars of liquid and the gallows where unruly prisoners were hung.
Imagine if you were a kid that was unable to leave an awful place they called a camp, who had lost all of your possessions, including your own mother and father. What else can they take? They wished there was someone on this earth, caring enough to take tortured children and put them into a home away from evil Nazi’s. Well there is, and it’s called the OSE. Let’s begin by comparing the OSE to moral courage and how they display how much courage humans really have.

The Holocaust The Holocaust was a major part of history all over the world. What was the key to survival during the Holocaust? There were many major events that occurred during the Holocaust like the gas chamber, lack of food, and physical labor and so on. There were two key figures involved in the Holocaust.
One of the most significant arguments that historians make in regards to the uniqueness of the Holocaust, is that it was an event that was ‘unlike’ any other event or genocide in history. The fact that it was unlike any other event, seems to allude to the belief that it cannot be compared to any other event like it. Consequently, it could be said that because of the belief that the Holocaust is ‘incomparable’ and ‘unlike’ any other event in history, there is a strong case for historians who subscribe to the theory that it is inherently unique. In saying this, however, it should be pointed out that, before one agrees to the theory of the Holocausts uniqueness, they should first ask themselves what makes the Holocaust unlike or incomparable to other events in history, and furthermore, how do these differences equate to its uniqueness? Similarly, before one begins their research in the hopes of discovering whether or not the Holocaust was indeed unique, it is also important to remember that historians claiming its uniqueness are not (in most cases) implying that those who
History is a subjective matter. There are several narrations and interpretations for every historical incident ever happened. Human beings are not immune to their own evil, which makes them vulnerable and painfully exposed to their self-made tragedies. Merriam Webster defines 'historiography' as "the writing of history based on the critical examination of sources, the selection of particulars from the authentic materials, and the synthesis of particulars into a narrative that will stand the test of critical methods." The significance of historiography lies in its ability to examine the evolution of thoughts and feelings concerned with a particular historical event.
Resistance in the Holocaust from the Jews was aimed towards the Germans and the Nazi, who got the most physical harm from the Jews. What sparked the act of resistance is when the Germans were getting rid of Jews in the ghettos and putting them into concentration camps. That was when the biggest resistant group, named the Z.O.B, attacked the Germans. The Z.O.B stands for Zydowska Organizacja Bojowa which means Jewish Fighting Organization in Yiddish. In order for the Z.O.B to create attack on the Germans they planned escape routes over rooftops of buildings.
Expository Report “We must do something, we can’t let them kill us like that, like cattle in the slaughterhouse, we must revolt”. These are the words from many men surrounding Elie Wiesel as he entered Auschwitz, calling out for rebellious toward the Germans harsh conditions. Of course they had no idea what they were getting themselves into, many thought that there was nothing wrong until boarding the cattle train that would send them off to their final resting place. Life during the holocaust was torturous to say the least, so much so that some 6,000,000 lives were taken during this time in Jewish descent alone. People of the Jewish descent did not have it easy; they either were forced out of their homes into concentration camps, or they would hide out only to be found and killed of they remained in their settlements.
“I had to help them.
