In the camps more than one million people died during World War II, other sources say 1.1 million died in Auschwitz. There are many reasons of death caused by the Nazis in Auschwitz such as in the gas chambers, the Nazis use Zyklon-B as a way to murder the Non-Aryans, once they were murdered they were put into a crematorium which was used to burn the bodies. If the Jews or Non-Aryans disrespected or did not follow the Nazi’s commands they were either shot or hanged if the non-Aryans were not fed enough they either starved to death or got sick and died. One source said 2.1 to 2.5 million Non-Aryans died in the gas chambers. On January 27, 1945, the Soviet army entered Krakow and liberated the Auschwitz Death Camps.
The Holocaust Introduction to the Holocaust In Greek, holocaust comes from the word holokauston which means “sacrifice by fire”. A holocaust is the destruction or slaughter on a mass scale, especially caused by fire or nuclear war. The holocaust that happened during World War II can be defined as a systematic, bureaucratic, state-sponsored persecution and murder of millions of people (mainly Jews) by the Nazi regime and its collaborators. It occurred in Europe within the Nazi borders and in the countries surrounding it between, January 30, 1933 – May 8, 1945 The Motives and Causes Behind the Holocaust The Jews were the main targets of the holocaust, and he hatred that was directed towards them was nothing new. They were persecuted for a long
The Holocaust The Holocaust was about a systematic killing and they murdered over six million jews by the nazi regime. Holocaust is a word of greek and it means “Sacrifice by fire”. The nazi’s believed that germans were “racially superior and the jews deemed “inferior”. The jews were killed by Adolf hitler and his collaborators. In 1941-1945 jews were murdered in a genocide.
Eventually Hitler began mass transportations from the ghettos to concentration camps starting with those people viewed as the least useful: the sick, old and weak, and the very young. At first Hitler started to gas those that were not useful. Other men and women who were in good condition were put to work. The first gassings began at the camp of Belzec, near Lublin, on March 17, 1942. From 1942 to 1945, Jews were deported to the camps from all over Europe, including German- controlled territory as well as those countries allied with Germany.
Belzec concentration camp The Belzec concentration camp was built mainly to kill the Jews. Belzec started as a labor camp in April 1940. It was built for the extermination of the Jews. It was the first Nazi camp with stationary gas chambers. Belzec had two sections of the camp.
During the Holocaust, the jews in the Warsaw ghetto faced many hardships. In this paper I will give my input on the jews hardships, and how they managed to survive despise being oppressed by the germans. On November 16, 1940, all the jews in the currently-occupied polish city of Warsaw were forced into a ghetto, which was only 2.4% of the total land mass of the city. To put that into perspective, during that time there was 375,000 jews living in Warsaw. That means a single building housed multiple families of jews.
In 1945 jews and many others types of people were taken from their homes, apartments, and other places and were taken to concentration camps. concentration camps where they kept them to kill, torture, and just to make them feel horrible and even worse. Auschwitz was one of the most well known camp it was more of a death camp in was first opened in April of 1940. It was more that 3.5 miles long so it was pretty big. Did you know that more than 6 million jews were killed in the holocaust yes I am amazed as well by that.
In late January, the fourth gas chamber is built for the horrid camp Auschwitz. And with the opening of the third camp, the daily containment of innocent corpses reach the saddening capacity of 4,756 daily. A massive escape from Sobibor (concentration camp) as Jews break out. 300 escaped, only 50 survived. Deaths then stop at Sobibor, after over 250,000 deaths.
The Holocaust is a historical event that the murdered around 6 million Jews and 5 million non-Jews. The Jews were also used for harsh labor, experiments, and starvation (Steele 6-7). The reason for this mass murder was that a leader during the time named Adolf Hitler wants to make his country an anti-semitic country (Steele 22). This tragedy took place all over Europe the main location was in Auschwitz, Germany (Blohm 6). Jews were a main target in The Holocaust, but some other victims were Roma, Sinti, disabled, and any other opposing religions (Steele 7).
All together Auschwitz had nearly 1.3 million people walk through the gates and only 200,000 had survived. Aswell as most other concentration camps Auschwitz I had the same three jobs. One incarcerate and enimies of the Nazi regime, two suply support to forced laborers, three serve as eliminaters of small targeted groups whoś fate was determined by an SS officer. The auschwitz concentration camp had a gas chamber and a crematory. For a short period of time they had to build a makeshift gas chamber in the basement of prision block 11 due to the actual gas chamber under going matnence.
