People sent to Auschwitz were used as forced laborers for the war and other jobs. Others were sent to Auschwitz for barbaric medical experiments. Many of those experiments were done on twins, dwarfs, and infants. “Between late April and early July 1944, approximately 440,000 Hungarian Jews were deported, around 426,000
(Vali 112) The Holocaust took place in different parts of Germany. (Concentration) There were over 11 million people killed in the Holocaust, and 5 million of them were non-Jews and the other 6 million were Jews. They were all killed during the 12 year Nazi Reich. (Altman 9) 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. Jews were forced to move to the ghettos.
Irena’s nickname while smuggling out the jews was “Jolanta”. She would smuggle jewish children out of the ghetto through suitcases, baskets, and anything else that they could fit into. Once out of the ghetto Irena would set up many different hiding places for the children. She was even able to send some of them to orphanages and religious institutions where hopefully no one would find out who the children actually were and where they came from. The children’s real name and background information was written on paper, put into glass jars and buried in a garden in case any surviving child wanted to find their parents or know where they came from once the Holocaust was over.
The other thing that was hard was leaving your house and belongings that you built your life on just disappearing. No matter how tough you think you are if you were apart of the holocaust you would feel like a baby. I know if I were ever a part of that tragic event I would not even thing about my 18th birthday and that 's just the sad truth. I can 't even think about joking if the holocaust was the subject. The Nuremberg laws were a huge part of the holocaust because it did one bad thing which basically made hate legal.
Why were concentration camps used? How many people died in the Holocaust? Did you know that young children were particularly targeted by the Nazis to be murdered during the Holocaust. They posed a unique threat because if they lived, they would grow up to parent a new generation of Jews. Many children suffocated in the crowded cattle cars on the way to the camps.
An estimated 83,000 Jews and minorities died in the ghetto, mainly due to sickness and starvation. In January 1943, after a few years into the ghetto’s existence, many Jewish men decided to fight back against the S.S. so they wouldn't be deported to Treblinka killing center. They were able to drive the S.S. out of the ghetto and take control for a few weeks until an entire S.S. army came to crush them once and for all
The Holocaust is the murder of six million Jews and other people like the Roma, homosexuals, political enemies, disabled, and some Slavic people. The Holocaust started in January 1933, after Germany was taken over by the Nazis. By 1945, two out of every three Jews were killed because of the “Final Solution,” a plan to exterminate all Jews (Byers 122). 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. In the summer of 1941, Jews were moved into ghettos (Byers 32).
When people were active so many lives were lost. In the text, “Resistance During the Holocaust,” it states that “However, the risk of resisting Nazi policies were grave; often an act of resistance by one person would mean the death of many others” (paragraph 5). If all Jews would have fought who knows where we could be today. Maybe they would have won their fight but many more lives would have been lost, but maybe no one would even know they fought. However, some may say that writing and keeping records may have never seen the light of day.
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 Nazi Party wanted to separate the Jews from the non-Jewish population, so they established ghettos. The ghettos allowed the Nazis to organize the Jews so deportation was easier, quicker, and allowed more Jews to be deported quicker (U.S. Holocaust 3). It was also a way to isolate and control the Jews (Altman 8).
One of the largest death camps in Germany, Auschwitz, was a result of the Wannsee Conference. This camp was known for the gas chambers that killed 6 thousand Jews a day (The Holocaust Notes, pg 4&7). After waiting in line to be evaluated by “doctors,” Jews were separated in different groups, most of which were sent to the “showers” that were actually gas chambers and got carbon monoxide poisoning. The others who weren't killed immediately worked at the camp and either starved to death or were later purged. By the end of World War 2, about 6 million Jews were murdered in concentration camps (Textbook, pg 503-504).
On August 22, 1942, Inge and her parents were arrested and deported by German officers. They had to leave all of their possessions and move to a Czechoslovakian ghetto called Theresienstadt. Fortunately, the Auerbachers were allowed to stay together even through the terrible conditions and sanitation. Meanwhile, in the same town they were living, Germans began building gas chambers to exterminate all Jews living in Theresienstadt. On May 8 of 1945, all the Jews were freed including Inge and her family, by Soviet troops.
Around 800,000 to one million individuals were killed at Treblinka Death Camp from July 23, 1942 to October 19, 1943 in Eastern Poland; 90 precent of all detainees was killed inside of two hours of entry. The bodies were then taken by Sonderkommandos to the open cremation pit on a peak. The pit had iron rails bound in layers inside of it like grillwork, on which the bodies were burned. Jews were intermittently forced to enter the pit and filter through the fiery remains for any bones that should have been be ground. On August 2, 1943, the prisoners fought back.
The holocaust resulted in the slaughter killed 5 million Jews and Jew and thousands of others suffering in death camps where they were experimented on and tortured. Innocent people 's lives were lost and ruin. The effect of this monstrosity devastated these people 's lives they watched as Nazi raped and killed their children. The final solution is the Nazi plan to extinguish all of the Jewish. The Nazis established ghettos in poland, Polish and Western European Jews were all taken to Ghettos.
The prisoners in the Holocaust were tormented and treated so cruelly, and the acts so inhumane, that bystanders had to resist, help, and fight back against the Nazis even if the consequences were death. The people that resisted weren 't just in the camps (Meir Berliner), but also outside the camps (Sophie Scholl), and people even hid Jews in their homes in Poland (Zegota). Sophie Scholl, who was an anti-nazi, helped to spread the information about the Holocaust . Scholl and her group made leaflets and passed them around secretly to encourage the people to resist passively against Nazis. “...the leaflet warned [the citizens] that Hitler was leading Germany into the abyss...” (Sophie Scholl Paragraph 12).
I will remember the Holocaust because a lot of people were hurt and killed. The American Soldiers were fighting to win World War ll, they risked their lives to save people from this tragic event. Some people even died, who weren’t Jews. 11 million people died during this awful time and only 6 million were Jews. The Nazis killed about ⅔ of the Jews living in Europe.
