From 1940 to end on Jews were systematically move to the death camps specifically built to exterminate the Jews. 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.
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 Nuremberg laws banned Jews from having any contact with Germans. Also, the laws banned Jewish people from attending public places. 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 conditions in camps were inhumane. 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 prisoners were taken from their homes, split from there family and sent to concentration camps across Germany, at these camps prisoners were forced to work, tortured and killed. 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
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 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).
The SS guards at the camp worked the people relentlessly and once they became too weak to work they killed them in the gas chambers. Undeniably, splitting up families, sending them to gas chambers, and working the prisoners to death is proving that Auschwitz Birkenau was most definitely a
Finally, it’s lunch break. 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.
Nazi camps starved the Jews until they were considered “human skeletons” and could not even walk. Second, some Jews had to fall from great heights for a job. A job for Jews was sometimes to fall from high places so the SS could see how high somebody could be dropped until they broke a bone. Finally, concentration camps were not immune to disease. After put in the camps, Jews had their head shaved.
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. Auschwitz was the most notorious of all the death camps during the Holocaust.It housed one out of every six deaths from all of the death camps throught the Holocaust.
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. The holocaust was systematic and consisted of a plan called: “The Final Solution”, which was a detailed plan to exterminate all the Jews in Europe. The “Final solution” was implemented in stages.
