Schindler’s List displays this by showing how the Jews were sent to forced labour camps such as the Plaszow. When they arrived to these labour and concentration camps, they were separated by gender as told “men to the left, women to the right”, this separated families causing more effective discomfort to the Jews. In the labour camps, many Jews were shot often resulting in death because they were not working to the satisfaction of the Nazis or SS officers who were in charge of that labour camp. If any Jews were seen as unhealthy they were sent to death camps. During this stage of the holocaust many Jews were
In the camps more than one million people died during World War II, other sources say 1.1 million died in Auschwitz. There are many reasons of death caused by the Nazis in Auschwitz such as in the gas chambers, the Nazis use Zyklon-B as a way to murder the Non-Aryans, once they were murdered they were put into a crematorium which was used to burn the bodies. If the Jews or Non-Aryans disrespected or did not follow the Nazi’s commands they were either shot or hanged if the non-Aryans were not fed enough they either starved to death or got sick and died. One source said 2.1 to 2.5 million Non-Aryans died in the gas chambers. On January 27, 1945, the Soviet army entered Krakow and liberated the Auschwitz Death Camps.
The jews starved daily and were forced to work like slaves. The Nazis partied in front of the jews and taunted them on the regular. Some camps were just full of hatred for example 1 million people died at the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp 90% of those were jews. The main cause in this camp was gas chambers.
Women, children, the elderly, and people who could not work were killed immediately. Millions of innocent people died, and very few people did survive. In Night, Elie Wiesel shows that the relationships between father and son change dramatically due to the inhumanity of death
Why were Concentration camps used? The Concentration camps were used to hold Jews as “Captives”. They held all sorts of Jews such as Socialists, Communist, and other political Prisoners. Jews, Homosexuals, Priests, and Ministers. They would keep them there working until they were unable to work, or they died of starvation.
The largest camp in Germany was known as Auschwitz. Three works that compare the camp Auschwitz are Night, One Day in Auschwitz, and an “Auschwitz” article. These three works are written by different authors who use point of view to advance their audiences
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 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).
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). Elie Wiesel, a survivor of Auschwitz, reflected, “Never shall I forget those moments which murdered my God and my soul and turned my dreams to dust” (Textbook, pg 505). Still to this day, Wiesel is traumatized by the grim experiences that took place in the Auschwitz death camp.
Undeniably, splitting up families, sending them to gas chambers, and working the prisoners to death is proving that Auschwitz Birkenau was most definitely a
Till this day people are trying to study the hatred for Jews. Concentration camps were a death zone for Jews, the Jews were shot, gassed, illness, and still died from the horror in the camps. Then, they would hope for the invaders to come and save their souls. These camps were ment to eliminate all Jews existence. However, they all started getting shut down by the saviors, also known as the invaders.
Finally, concentration camps were not immune to disease. After put in the camps, Jews had their head shaved. The SS kept all the hair and used it to stuff the Jews’ pillows. Lice live and hair… and lice carry a lot of diseases. Concentration camps treated Jews much, much worse than internment camps treated Japanese-Americans.
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.
Auschwitz was the largest death camp in all of Nazi Germany, and it had to be built somewhere. For Auschwitz to be built everyone living in the area was moved from their homes, which were later bulldozed to create space. It was built on what used to be a military base, outside of a to8 November 2016 “Auschwitz stands as a tragic reminder of the terrible potential man has for violence and inhumanity.” stated Billy Graham. It was the most feared place to be sent.
The Holocaust The word holocaust is derived from the Ancient Greek which means to slaughter/ sacrifice on a massive scale, especially by fire. However since 1945 it has a different definition; the mass murder of Jews and other racial minorities under the German Nazi regime. During the period of 1933- 1945 6 million Jews were killed, and about 5 million other racial minorities including Gypsies and Slavic people, as well as political minorities including Communists, Socialist and homosexuals.
