The Holocaust was a long tragedy that started in 1933 and lasted until 1945. During this time, millions of Jews were taken from their homes by German soldiers and moved to concentration camps. There many of the Jews were separated from their families tortured, and killed. Even though this was a hard time to live through there were some heroes who tried to save the Jews by hiding them or even making them fake passports to get away. One of the heroes was Sofka Skipwith who got fake paperwork from the French to help the Jews escape.
Sofka Skipwith was born in St. Petersburg, Russia during 1907. She was an ex Russian refuge who was married to Leo Zinovieff and they had two kids together. Her Dad was known as Prince Peter Alexanderovitch Dolgorouky. …show more content…
When the Jewish went to show their Latin American paperwork the British realized that the paperwork was invalid. Everyone who now held a fake passport was in danger for deportation to death camps. The ones who provided the documents were also in danger.
Later on in 1944 after Sofkas repatriation to Britain she remarried to a man named Oliver. Her son Patrick soon came to live with her while her other children stayed with their grandparents. In 1960, she finally settled down and started writing after the British security forces had followed her for some years. She published her first book “Sofka: The autobiography of a princess.” She passed away from heart failure in 1994.
Sofka was a brave woman who was born in St. Petersburg in 1907. Sofka saved many Jews during the time of the Holocaust by getting fake paperwork to help them get out of the country.

By helping them, she was also risking her life because if anyone were to find out she could have been sent to concentration camps and or killed. She pushed through all these hard times and saved
On November 5, 1872 Susan B. Anthony had voted and was imprisoned for it two weeks later. Did she have the right to vote, or was she wrong? She was wrong to a lot of people but not the women and to the court reasoning she was imprisoned for it. Although she was wrong to vote and breaking the law I believed that her motives were for the greater good of humanity. Susan B. Anthony, born February 5, 1820 raised in a Quakers household.
The Holocaust is one of the darkest times in history. The Holocaust was started by Hitler, defining people if they were Jewish, part Jewish, or Aryan. Little did these people know that it would get a lot worse for Jewish people after a few years. In a few years innocent people were being sent to gas chambers just for being Jewish.
Sojourner Truth was born in New York, 1797. She was an African-American abolitionist and women’s rights activist. In 1851, she delivered a speech “Ain’t I A Woman?” at the Women’s Convention in Akron, Ohio. Her speech on racial equalities was effective because she expressed concern that the movement would fail after achieving victories for black men, leaving both black and white women without suffrage and other key political rights.
The Holocaust was a destruction of many people. There were some people who were resistant against the holocaust. Such as Oskar Schindler who may have just been one person but made a huge difference by saving a thousand people. These heroic people saved many lives and made a great change. Oskar Schindler was born April 28, 1908, in the city of Svitavy, in the Sudetenland now know as Czech Republic.

The Holocaust. A short, unimaginable period, of just over twelve years, where almost 6 million Jews were murdered by the German nazis. Overall, 17 million victims were killed and thousands were forced to work in inhumane conditions and live in concentration camps. Elie Wiesel, a victim of the Holocaust, having been deported at the age of 12, is one of the few survivors who lived to tell their story. He has written many books and given many speeches about his experience, but they all convey a similar message, that we as a population, cannot remain silent but to stand up for the indifferences and the horrendous events of this world.
The Holocaust took place during the years 1933 to 1945. It was an attempt to remove all of the Jews, and other smaller groups such as homosexuals and Jehovah's Witnesses, which lived in the country of Germany.

Schindler's List is a film about the Holocaust from a man named Oskar Schindler's perspective as a leader of a concentration camp. The film displays the five stages of the Holocaust.
Sojourner Truth was a very powerful and independent woman of her time. She got others to join her in the movement for women 's rights.
