The Holocaust is the deadliest recognized genocide in human history. It lasted from January 30,1933 – May 8,1945 and would result in the l1 million deaths. The causes of the Holocaust begin at the end of World War One with what Germans referred to as “the stab in the back”. This was a myth that claimed the German Army did not loose World War One but was betrayed by the Jewish population who gave up land and supplies to the Allies. As this spread anti-Semitism or hate for Jewish people grew in Germany as people viewed the Jewish population as deceptive and traitorous. As the Nazi party rose to power with their psychopathic leader, Adolf Hitler, at the helm they made it very clear that Jewish people were a threat to the German future and must therefore be exterminated.
The ghettos were surrounded by barbed wire and high walls so the Jews couldn’t leave(An Introductory History of the Holocaust-Jewish Virtual Library). The German Army took up the western half of Poland in 1939(An Introductory History of the Holocaust-Jewish Virtual Library). The Army expanded Hitler’s empire in the spring and summer of 1940(An Introductory History of the Holocaust- Jewish Virtual Library). They had conquered Norway, Denmark, Belgium, The Netherlands, France, and Luxemburg(An Introductory History of the Holocaust-Jewish Virtual Library). After German religious leaders protested, Hitler put an end to the Holocaust in August 1941(An Introductory History of the Holocaust-Jewish Virtual Library).
Everyone who has learned about World War II should know about the Holocaust. The Holocaust was during the same period of World War II. “What is it called the Holocaust?” you may ask. The Holocaust originates from the Greek language and means “completely burnt offering to God.” How does this relate to the Holocaust where almost 8 million Jewish people died? In this essay, you will be informed about the main leader of the Nazis, why saying that Hitler only captured Jews is historically inaccurate, concentration camp treatment, and five atrocious experiments done by the Nazi soldiers to innocent prisoners.
Eleven million lives were massacred in one of the world’s darkest moments attempting to create a perfect race. In 1942 Germany was losing World War II, Adolf Hitler 's final solution was to target the blame towards Europe 's Jewish population, gypsies, and homosexuals. Together Hitler and the Nazi regime gradually deprived the Jews, gypsies and homosexuals from their rights. Many people were brought to labor camps by train. The conditions in camps were inhumane.
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 Holocaust is considered one of the most notable events to happen in human history. Adolf Hitler’s plan was to exterminate all races of which he thought was inferior to his master race, The Aryan Race. To effectively kill them, he made concentration camps where the prisoners would be worked to death. Sadly, most of the races targeted and killed were the Jews. They were blamed for everything such as World War I and World War II.
The Holocaust was the mass genocide of mainly Jewish people and the “undesirables”. The jewish people were dehumanized by the Nazis. All of the people that were persecuted in the mass genocide were either placed into death camps, work camps, or the ghetto when waiting to get to a death camp or work camp. Though the Nazis were trained to be ruthless killing machines, some were kind at heart and helped some of the jewish people survive. “She pinned a lie to the lips of all those who said they had no choice”, Gerda Weissman went through and saw all of the horrific actions of the nazis.
The Germans had also created work/concentration camps where Jews and other non-Aryans were either worked to death or gassed to death. In their efforts to rid Jews, they even ignored higher needs like military and supplies transport. And instead they chose to pack thousands of Jews into trains and send them to their concentration
During this time 6,000,000 Jews were killed, not by war, but rather at the hands of Germany. Hitler believed that Jews were an inferior race and was a threat to German purity. After years of being mistreated Hitler had a plan called the Final Solution, which was the attempt to extinct the entire Jewish Population. Germany would accomplish this by concentration camps that were set up in Poland.
There are many events in history but Holocaust left a permanent scar on the face of history. The event soaked in blood and tears of innocent would be unforgettable. Holocaust also known as Shoah (in Hebrew) was a genocide that took lives of millions of people from different backgrounds. Approximately 1 million Gypises were killed, 1.5 million mentally and physically handicapped people were victims of T-4 program, but Jews where the primary victims and 6 million Jews died in holocaust (Neiwyk and Nicosia). The Holocaust took place between 1933-1945. In 1933, Nazis came in power in Germany and they believed that Germans are “superior” race where Jews are “inferior” and evil race. Economically Jews were strong and Hitler and Nazis did not like
The Holocaust was the mass murder of Jews, Gypsies, and the mentally or physically disabled (Introduction). The word Holocaust means burning of animals as a human sacrifice (Steele 6). In the process of the Holocaust, more than 35 million people died (Strahinich 76). The Holocaust took place mostly in Europe and Poland, where the Jewish population was three million plus (Introduction). 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
Niree’ Miller Mrs.Cannady English 2 Honors 4 March 2016 Holocaust In the 1940’s the Germans wanted to take rights and terminate the Jews. Some people tried to save Jews and help them by hiding them in their houses. Germans put over 6 million Jews in concentration camps and made them do work without pay, little food, and water. Women and very little children often got sent to gas chambers upon arrival.
First of all the Jewish Holocaust; All start when Adolf Hitler became the authority of Germany. 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 “superiors” than the Jews, were “lesser”, were a threat to the “German Community.” In 1933, the Jewish population of Europe is located in more than 9 million. The majority of the Jews lived in countries that Nazi Germans would occupy during The World War II.
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.
The Holocaust was the genocide of the Jewish religion from 1933 to 1945. Hitler wanted to wipe out the Jews because he felt that the Jews were responsible for Germany’s loss in the World War. When Hitler gained power in 1933, he started the extermination of the Jews. The Nazi’s would take Jews from their homes and put them into concentration camps.
