“I don’t know, we’ll probably have to leave it there,” I emphasized. We waited about 2 hours until we noticed that 3 convoy trucks were leaving through the gates. We quickly ran to the hole and made our way to the building where some of the Nazis sat down for some rest or food. The Partisan Fighters were the first to strike since they weren’t scared to kill anybody. After about an hour and a half of screaming sounding as loud as an explosion and gunshots.
These survivors who experienced this event, have been scarred for the rest of their life. We can listen to their stories but we can’t imagine and experienced what they have gone through. For example, Szymon Binke, Hilma Geffen, and Baker Ella, were the survivors of the Holocaust. Szymon Binke was born in 1931 in Poland, his family moved to the city after the Nazi’s invasion. Nazis deported his family to Auschwitz where his mother and sister were gassed, while, Szymon was placed in Kinder block but after sometime he ran away to meet his family in Auschwitz.
“In a few seconds, we had ceased to be men” (PG.36). Elie is a Jewish boy from Transylvania who is taken to Auschwitz, where he is separated from his mother and sister. Elie and his father are then moved to the concentration camp called “Buna”, where they spend most of their time there. They then were forced to be evacuated to Gleiwitz, where they ran about 42 miles to reach their destination. They spent about 3 days at Gleiwitz and then they were transported to Buchenwald by train.
In Bergen-Belsen “exchange Jews” were shipped from other camps and lived under better conditions. One of Anne’s old school friends, named Hanneli Goslar, was an “exchange Jew” and spoke to Anne. She also threw bread over the fence for Anne, luckily they were not caught, or else they would have been killed. The only person who survived life in concentration camp was Anne’s father. A week before being liberated Margot died of typhus, which spreads through lice.
In a span of 10 years, the Holocaust killed over 7 million people, that’s just as much as the population of Hong Kong. In the book Night, by Elie Wiesel, Wiesel shares his experience on how he survived the Holocaust and what he went through. How he dealt with the horrors and even to how he felt of his dad’s death and how he saw himself after it was all over. As he tried to publish it he was constantly turned down due to the fact of how horrid and truful it was. He still tried and tried until it was finally published.
Gabe Tonucci 8/20/2015 “These days I live in three worlds: my dreams, and the experiences of my new life, which trigger memories from the past”(Beah 20). After a month of living in the relative safety of New York City, Ishmael Beah haunted by the events that he witnessed and took part in during the war. No one in New York could possibly understand what he had to go through, leaving all these thoughts trapped inside of his head. Not helping his situation is the fact that every night he tosses and turns from having nightmares we witnessed the RUF preform and the horrible things he did himself. He is a young man divided against himself, as his country had been divided against itself - in both cases, due to the rebels' violent actions.
The strike lasted 3 days until the government surrendered, everyday people went there and shouted for the government to leave the garden. After we finished me and Kim got really close and started dating. We go to the garden everyday and our plantation is now
Anne Frank and her family spent over two years hiding from the Nazis during World War II. Anne was around the age of fourteen when she and seven other people had to leave their daily lives and live in a small space just to avoid being killed during this period. Anne Frank’s diary was written with journal-like entries, which started the day she received the diary and ended a couple of years before the war was over. Everyone in the "Secret Annexe" get found by the SS which would lead to everyone dying except Anne’s dad, who published his daughter’s diary. This source supports my question by allowing the reader to see a different perspective throughout time.
While fighting in Germany, him and other soldiers were taken as prisoners of war in 1944. Vonnegut was taken to a city called Dresden and was forced to work in a factory with the other prisoners. On February 13, 1945, the Allies started bombing the city until there was nothing left. Vonnegut and a few other prisoners hid in an underground meatlocker all night and didn’t come out until the next day. The Germans that survived the bombing made the surviving prisoners dig the corpses out of the ruined city.
Soon after Tom Benecke decided to get out the door of the apartment his yellow paper flew out the apartment window.Tom Benecke said “well I have two choices I can follow my dream and get that paper or I can go to the movies with my wife.”Tom Benecke said “I had a few minutes of deciding he had decided to do both of his ideas.”So he started to walk to the theatre and he ran into some trouble he had remembered he had owed some guys some.He owed them 100$ and he only had 150$ on him.

The guys said okay
All of the other prisoners knew the rules. New prisoners would arrive every other month and other prisoners would be transferred to different camps. The prisoners would eat once a week and that was on Wednesday they would have bread that was rough or soup that was cold. Most of the prisoners die of starvation or they will be killed by the leader of the camp Goliath. He runs the whole thing and the soldiers would beat the prisoners with clubs because either they weren 't working hard enough or they looked to
Both Eliezer and his father passed and were sent to Auschwitz. At Auschwitz, the conditions were better and the prisoners weren’t as brutal. They were allowed to sleep and their first rations were passed out. Eliezer refused to eat his ration the first time. For the next few weeks, the prisoners had to follow a tight schedule that included roll call, meals, and bedtimes.
Dear diary, Today will be the last time I’m writing to you because rumors have been going around that many of us will be gassed tomorrow. Because it’s been awhile since the last time i was able to write i’ll fill you in on all that has happened. After all of the jewish schools were destroyed me, my dad, mom, grandmother, and four siblings packed up and moved from our home in Kaluszyn to my dad friends house in Minsk Mazowiecki. Soon after we got to Minsk Mazowiecki however, the natzis forced all jews to live in a small part of town with few houses so we had many roommates. It got to the point where my grandmother had to go back to Kaluszyn to live with my aunt.
May 8th, 1945 - Brent It has been months since I was captured by Nazi general, trying to save a Jewish kid. Gen. Jonathan McCormick has beaten me down to my last straw. My body is weak and I can barely stand up. I barely get food. Each person here at this camp gets one piece of bread per day.
He changed as a person because he was used to people dying that it didn’t even bother him anymore. But in the beginning Elie when he first arrived at the camp he wasn 't used to seeing people dying. On Elies’s first day at Auschwitz he saw “a truck drew close and unloaded its hold: small children. Babies!... thrown into flames” (32).
