The Holocaust is 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 first step in the Holocaust was moving the Jews to ghettos. Ghettos were temporary holding places for Jews. The Nazis wanted the concentration camps to exterminate the majority of the Jews, but the ghettos gave more opportunities for natural death (Byers 73). Many Jews were also forced to do labor in the ghettos, which sometimes caused natural death (Byers 73).
The Holocaust was a tragic event that took place from 1941 to around 1945. Adolf Hitler was behind the movement of persecution of the Jewish race. More than six million Jews were murdered in this awful event. The place where these tragic events took place were Concentration Camps. Unsafe and unhealthy conditions for anyone to live in but they were forced there against will.
The Holocaust, also referred to as the Shoah, was a genocide in which some six million European Jews were killed by Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Germany and the World War II collaborators with the Nazis. In other words Holocaust also means Genocide, Ethnic cleansing, Deportation or Mass murder. The Holocaust was the systematic, bureaucratic, state-sponsored persecution and murder of six million Jews by the Nazi regime and its collaborators. Holocaust is a word of Greek origin meaning “sacrifice by fire.” The Nazis, who came to power in Germany in January 1933, believed that the Germans were racially superior and that the Jews, considered inferior, were an alien threat to the so-called German racial community. During the era of the Holocaust, the German authorities also targeted other groups because of their apparent racial inferiority.
The Holocaust was the methodical deportation, dehumanization, and extermination of eleven million people during World WarⅡ (MacKay 6). As a result, two-thirds of the Jewish population in Europe was extinguished (MacKay 7). With them, the rich culture and immense potential they held was lost to a senseless mass murder (MacKay 4). The unimaginable brutality of the Holocaust will never be forgotten, and neither will the millions of people who left their friends, family, and neighbors, never to be seen again (Antisemitism). The Holocaust is 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.
Prime locations for the camps were on good working railroads with ghettos nearby (Strahinich 39). There were two groups involved in the Holocaust they were the Allies, which consisted of the United States, France, Soviet Union, and Britain and the other group was the Axis Powers which consisted of Germany, Japan, and Italy (World). The Holocaust is 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. There are many reasons for the Jews relocation. One of the reasons the Jews were forced to live in the ghettos was that the Nazis wanted them segregated from the rest of the population(GHETTOS).
The Holocaust Concentration Camps: Auschwitz The Holocaust was a horrid experience. The Holocaust came about because Adolf Hitler was upset over the loss of World War I. Hitler blamed the Jews for Germany’s loss in World War I, and he wanted to take over Germany, with that came him thinking he had to get rid of all the Jewish people. So after the loss of World War I, he tried and succeeded with the extermination of most of the Jews. Hitler first sent the Jews to concentration camps, which about 20,000 concentration camps were built by Nazi Germany. The main camps were the ones of Auschwitz.
The Holocaust was the mass murder of millions of Jews and other religions from the Nazi regime and their collaborators (Steele 6). The Nazi’s got their power in 1933, they thought they were the “Master Race” and other’s lower than them were hated and tortured or killed (Steele 6). After the Nazi’s took power their final solution was to erase all Jews, other religions, and anyone who stood in their way (Steele 6). The Holocaust took place all over Europe but some of the main places the Holocaust took place in were Germany, Poland, and Hungary (Blohm 10), (Ghettos). People that were involved in the Holocaust were Nazis, Jews, other religions, and politicians (Steele 6-7).
I couldn’t go to Dutch school anymore.” To put this quote differently, All the Jewish people were discriminated and got treated unfairly. They were kicked from their homes and jobs, had to give up land, and even had to wear yellow stars to signify that they are Jewish, just because of what they believe in. And according to Anne, these people are “Good at heart”. It doesn’t make sense. On History.com, the text states “This culminated in Kristallnacht, or the “night of broken glass” in November 1938, when German synagogues were burned and windows in Jewish shops were smashed; some 100 Jews were killed and thousands more arrested.” This quote shows the extent of how Jews were treated.
Nazis dehumanize the jews in multiple ways and for multiple reasons in the times of the holocaust. The holocaust took place during WWII. At this time the chancellor of Germany know as Adolf Hitler had ordered a crusade against the jewish race. In this time period over 6 million jewish people including men women and children.

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.
