They held the highest population in all and every camp. In retaliation to Jews for killing a German policeman in self defense on July 31, 1940 the nazis carried out a public mass execution(“Holocaust”). This day was later named “Bloody Wednesday”.They were tortured by anxiety, were insecure of the present, torn between hope and despair, and felt helpless. There were many people who were persecuted during the Holocaust that weren’t Jewish: spouses of Jews, Roma Gypsies, resisters, priests and pastor, Jehovah Witnesses, political enemies, homosexuals, the disabled, and African-German descent. Spouses of Jews had to choose between getting a divorce or being sent to concentration camps along with their Jewish Spouse.
The reason they were called Death Marches is because many Jews died on these marches. (Rogasky, Barbara Smoke and Ashes: The Story of the Holocaust) The Nazis had planned this all out. An entire state bureaucracy was created with the task of make sure everything went smoothly as they killed over 6 million Jews and 5 million other undesirables. Undesirables were homesexuals, POWs, Gypsies, and Poltical Prisoners. The Nazis developed the technology and
The Holocaust occurred because the Nazi leader, Adolf Hitler, saw Jews as an inferior race and a threat to Germany (History.com staff, 2009). Between 1933 and 1945, concentration camps to hold Jews captive had become a factor in the lives of Germans. Nazi Germany and its allies had established more than 40,000 camps and other incarceration camps where forced labor, mass murder
The paradox of being half ugly is shown all throughout Hitler 's actions. In WWII the entire Jewish population was the target for Hitler and his Nazis party. This led to millions of jews being persecuted and killed. One example of the ugliness of the war would be the discrimination and the hatred of other races. While in power Hitler created concentration camps to contain Jews and people not of German background.
The Holocaust The Holocaust was a mass murdering of millions of people. Most of the people killed were of the Jewish population. The number of people killed was so high they had to make a new word for it, genocide (Rice 11). The leader of this genocide was Adolf Hitler. Hitler is a German dictator (Fremon 7).
He and his men killed millions including Jews, Gypsies, the disabled, and many more. Because of Hitler 's actions over 11 million were killed, 1 million of them being children. I think that the Holocaust was horrible and wrong and hopefully we will not have to experience anything like this again. I learned a lot from the books Night and The Book Thief. They made me realize how horrible the Holocaust was and what it was like to experience it.
The Holocaust was a persecution and eventual mass murder of Jews during the Nazi regime in the World War II. An estimate of six million Jews were killed, all because of their religion and beliefs. The Nazi thought they were the superior race, and Jews were “inferior” as well as a danger to the ‘perfect’ German community. Gradually, the German government was filled with people who believed that Jews needed to be purged. They began to pass laws that specifically targeted Jews, such as making all Jews wear a big yellow star to identify themselves, as well as forbidding Jews from riding bikes.
During the Holocaust millions of people were killed by the Nazis because they were not the ideal race. The Nuremberg Trials were held in Nuremberg, Germany. The judges of the trials were from Great Britain, the Soviet Union, the United States, and France. These trials were held to bring justice to all the lives lost during World War two. After the Holocaust, the Nuremberg Trials were held to bring justice to Nazi officials, Industrialists, but failed to punish those who escaped.
An evil disgusting dictator named Adolf Hitler built concentration camps and tortured and killed millions and millions of innocent people including men, women, and children. Jewish People were told that they would be living in a better place. But it was the opposite. In concentration camps, Jewish people were kept in small crowded cells filled with strangers and very little room for sleep and privacy.
Jewish people were excluded from public life on September 15th, 1935 when the Nuremberg Laws were issued. These laws also stripped German Jews of their citizenship and their right to marry Germans. When the Nuremberg Laws were established, the Jewish population began the process of losing their identity and eventually themselves. As soon as Adolf Hitler came to power in 1933, the human race would be forever scarred. Although it is estimated the number of people killed in the Holocaust was around 11 million, there is a high chance of the death toll being much higher.
