WW2 has 24 million casualties and 40% of that was from the holocaust alone. People are so moved by this that they start projects like the paperclip which brings the whole community to come together and donate money so they can teach others the importance of the holocaust.

This event is still out to change many lives if I have a chance to tell anyone about this disaster that happened I would tell him or her.
Elie was held captive in concentration camps from 1944-1945. During his time in the concentration camps, he became grateful for what he had, overcame countless obstacles, and more importantly kept fighting until he was free. [The Holocaust is very important to learn about because it can teach you some important life lessons.] You should always be grateful for what you have, no matter what the circumstances are. This lesson can be learned when Elie says, “After my father’s death, nothing could touch me any more”(109).

Prior to the election of the Nazi party, in 1933, 6 million German civilians were unemployed and Hitler while being elected had promised to provide the people with ‘Bread and Jobs’. And fortunately, for Germany, the Nazis parties hard work paid off and in 1939 the number of unemployed decreased to only 302,000.

Moreover, Hitlers administration of the National Labor service gave men raging from ages 18 to 25 jobs to attend to public work in fields such as constructing buildings, which were hospitals and schools as well as repairing and building houses, roads and railways. This initiation immediately created many job opportunities and also improved rearmament on a large scale.

A historical figure that has had an influence on me is Ishmael Beah. His story of a child at war is truly inspiring. He ran to save his life at such a young age and he was captured and “brain-washed” into the war in Sierra Leone during the nineties. From his memoir, A Long Way Gone he enlightened me that there is no right side to war, both sides of the war are destructive, both sides recruited children to fight and both forced recruits to do drugs that altered their way of thinking. In the memoir, UNICEF saves him from the war by bartering for the children and they saved as much children as they could.
