It all started with one camp called Auschwitz where many people died including author and holocaust survivor, Elie Wiesel’s family. The Holocaust is also 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 Nazis forced Jews into the ghettos to separate them from the rest of the population (“Ushmm Ghettos”). Adolf Hitler was in charge at the time and created three different types of ghettos for different type of treatments and torture (“Ushmm Ghettos”). The three types were closed ghettos, open ghettos, and destruction ghettos.
During the Holocaust, the creation of ghettos was a key step in the Nazi process of separating, persecuting, and ultimately destroying Europe 's Jews. KEY FACTS Ghettos were set up to segregate Jews from the rest of the population. They were designed to be temporary; some lasted only a few days or weeks, others for several years. The vast majority of ghetto inhabitants died from disease or starvation, were shot, or were deported to killing centers ORIGIN OF THE TERM “GHETTO” The term "ghetto" originated from the name of the Jewish quarter in Venice, Italy.

And fourteen thousand is just the first group of gypsies to be sent to concentration camps, over twenty five thousand gypsies were eventually killed in concentration camps. Gypsies went through many of the same conditions and experiences as Jews during the holocaust, making gypsies the first non-Jewish group affected by the
Few authors have described the Holocaust with as much eloquence as Elie Wiesel. He is known as “the poet of the Holocaust.” The Holocaust was the period between 1933 and 1945 when Nazi Germany systematically persecuted and murdered millions of Jews and other innocent people. Elie Wiesel was born in Sighet, Romania, on September 30, 1928. A native of Sighet, Transylvania (Romania, from 1940-1945 Hungary). Wiesel and his family were deported by the Nazis to Auschwitz when he was 15 years old.
The Germans had planned to destroy the ghetto in three days. The Jews lasted for at least a month. Resistance fighters succeeded in hiding in the sewers, even though the Germans tried flood them and then force them out with smoke bombs. Not until May 8 did the Nazis manage to take the ZOB bunker. People hiding there surrendered, many of the survivors committed suicide instead of being captured; Mordecai Anielewicz the leader of the resistance killed himself.
Then in 1928, during this year Crystal night occurred. This was when all Jewish synagogues, houses and shops were attacked. This occurred because of the murder of a Nazi by a Jews, this lead to 30,000 Jews arrested. After this event they were forced to wear a yellow star on the clothing. Then Jews were forced out of Germany into concentration and POW camps in Britain, France, USA, Australia and Japan.
The bitter defeat of Germany in the World War 1 and the humiliating Treaty of Versailles gave rise to an indigenous and extreme form of fascism in Germany called Nazism. This ideology leads to one of the worst genocide in the history of mankind, known as The Holocaust, in which approximately six million Jews were killed by the Nazi regime under the command of Adolf Hitler and its collaborators. These killings took place throughout Nazi Germany and German occupied territories. During and after World War ll, i.e., between 1941- 1945, Jews were targeted and methodically murdered in the largest genocide of the 20th cent. Every arm of Germany’s bureaucracy was involved in the logistics of the genocides, turning the Third Reich into “a genocidal
