Anne Frank was a girl who was hiding from the Germans during the Holocaust. After two years of hiding, she was killed and we know what her life was like because we have her diary. Genocide is the deliberate killing of a large group of people, especially those of a particular ethnic group or nation. The Holocaust was the killing of people with Jewish heritage by the Germans. After being exposed to multiple perspectives my understanding of genocide has changed because, I now know that there are more than one cause of genocide, how the support of other countries and their leaders have affected the victims of genocide, and how some stories can help you understand how it was like living during genocide.
The Holocaust was a terrible event in human history consisting of millions of deaths of innocent Jews, and this event was during World War II and information about the Holocaust can be found in the Holocaust Museam. The Holocaust Museam showcases this event from box cars to corpses and teaches many of the sad fate of the Jews. Articles about the Holocaust Museam could be either objective or subjective. Objectivity is something that is measurable, like facts, information and statistics. On an opposite viewpoint of objectivity is subjectivity, this includes point of view, opinions, feelings and emotions.
In this paper I will investigate how the ten steps of genocide was used in Rwanda, the effects of imperialism on Rwandan culture and gain insight into why Hutus decided to kill Tutsis through the analysis of the book Machete Season by Jean Hatzfeld. Book Review I believe Machete Season revealed two major themes. The first is that societal factors can influence the normalization of violence. The second is people can rationalize killing others if they believe it is their duty or their mission given by an authority figure. There were many ethical issues that were raised from the responses that the prisoners gave.
In total, german authorities and their collaborators killed up to six million Jews. That was two-thirds the population of the Jewish population in Europe 1939. Even though the Nazis didn’t annihilate the Jewish population or even win the war, they still ended, destroyed, and changed many people 's lives. So I conclude that the final solution was one of the most thought out and persistent plans
by the mean and unkind people in the world. While the families were in hiding, Anne, as well as everyone else, was upset by the fact that they had to hide from the Germans, they had to do this, because if they didn’t they would be sent to a concentration camp, and be put to their deaths. Anne was upset about this but she said “Were not the only people that have had to suffer.”(Frank,510) During the holocaust, many people were treated badly based on religion. It all happened because of the unkind people, Hitler, his followers, and the Germans. Peter says in anger “Look at us hiding for 2 years not being able to move.” (Frank, 510) The people that are hiding in the annex are only there because they don’t want to get sent to a concentration camp, or be put to their death.
Samuel Nunez 8th Grade English Honors Block 2 Mrs. Guidry 30 January 2018 The Holocaust The Holocaust was the mass murdering of Jews, politicians, prisoners of war, and social minorities by Adolf Hitler’s idea called the “Final Solution”, which was the idea of the Jew’s extinction (The Holocaust). The Holocaust mainly took place in Middle Europe, because the majority of Concentration and Death camps were in Poland and Germany (Blohm 6).The people that were involved in the Holocaust were mainly Jews and the Nazis, but there were others who played roles such as the minority races, the disabled, and the Allied Forces (The Holocaust).The Holocaust is a time in history when millions of people were persecuted in Europe by being sent to live in ghettos and eventually being deported to concentration camps where they were systematically annihilated until the Allied forces liberated the remaining survivors. The Jews at first were forced into the Ghettos, because of orders are given out by a high ranking SS officer named Reinhard Heydrich (Allen 37). Another reason why the Jews were moved to the Ghettos, was because the Nazis wanted to separate the Jews from the rest of the German population (Ghettos). Lastly, having all the Jews in one area allowed the Nazis to be able to transport the Jews to death and concentration camps much easier (Allen 37).
“The Unrecognized” In order to better understand the Holocaust, one needs to be familiar with the definition. The Holocaust embodies the systematic slaughter of approximately six million Jewish men, women, and children, in addition to millions of others, by the Nazis during WWll. Furthermore, the origin of the word is rooted in the Greek/Hebrew term for a burnt sacrifice given to God. The ultimate horror of the Holocaust happened in the death camps as bodies were burned whole in the crematoria ( Benerbaum ). As we are educated about the Holocaust, one usually focuses on how the Jewish were brutally treated and murdered.
They hoped that these restrictions would compel the Jews to Germany. This would make the nation Judenrein “free of Jews” One effect that this cause was that 6 million Jews were killed. More were hurt by the outcome of the Holocaust. At the beginning of the 21st Century, a school in Whitwell. Tennessee made a memorial in honor of those 6 million Jews that were killed during the Holocaust.
I will give you some background information about the Genocide, and why it happened. In the Article, “Business Insider”, the Armenian Genocide happened as an “result of the Ottoman Empire suffering it’s first loss in the First World War”, they state, “the Young Turk government decided to gather up all the Christian Armenian political leaders, and kill them.” The main reason why the Armenian Genocide happened was getting rid of any “Christian political Armenians”, living in the Ottoman Empire. Different articles have stated that there were roughly, “2 million Armenians who lived in the Ottoman Empire at this time”, and when the massacres finally ended almost “1.5 million Turkish Armenian’s were dead.” (History, Armenian
The Holocaust: A Failure of Civilization Under the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide adopted by the UN in 1948, the term genocide is defined as “committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group,” (Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide 280). The Holocaust was a genocide committed between the years of 1933 with the rise of the third reich to 1945 with the end of World War 2 and the demise of the Third Reich. Nazi government officials as well as many other collaborators were put on trial for war crimes and crimes against humanity in the infamous Nuremberg trials. The horrors of The Holocaust extend to a deeper level than the crimes and atrocities committed by the Nazi government however. From people allowing the atrocities of the
The Holocaust: The widely known event that is the genocide of the Jewish people. It caused the deaths of an estimated 6 million Jews. The Jewish people even call it Shoah, meaning “The Catastrophe”. Hitler used many of his men to carry out the Holocaust, and many resources to build the concentration camps that the Jewish people and many other unfortunate souls would be shipped off to. Instead of committing genocide, Hitler could have used the soldiers and resources used in the Holocaust in the war.
Hitler made the military decisions for his country during the war, but he is perhaps most known for his role in the Holocaust. The Holocaust was "the systematic murder of 6 million Jews across Europe (Danzer et al. 542)." At first, Jewish people were restricted of their liberties through the Nuremberg Laws ("Holocaust Timeline"). After forcing many Jews to leave, only around 250,000 Jewish people remained in Germany; therefore, Hitler executed his Final Solution, which was "a policy of genocide, the deliberate and systematic murder of an entire population (Danzer et al.
Many bad things have happened in the past but nothing was compared to the holocaust also known as Shoah. This butchery happened over a period of time over twelve years, January 30th, 1933 to May 8th, 1945.

Over six million jews were killed over the holocaust time period. But Hitler didn 't only kill jews, he killed many people like soviet POWS, Serbs, jehovah 's witnesses, homosexuals etc.
