This stage started in the year 1942. In this stage of the Holocaust was when deportations of Jews throughout Europe began to take place. The Nazis systematically gathered the majority of Jews throughout Europe and transported them to concentration camps in Eastern Europe. Jews and other enemies of the Nazis were imprisoned in the concentration camps. From 1940 to end on Jews were systematically move to the death camps specifically built to exterminate the Jews.
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 Holocaust occurred in Europe in the early 1940’s (Altman 1). Constructed by Adolf Hitler, Germany’s first and only Führer, the Holocaust is a horrible event (Introduction). Jewish people were treated in cruel and brutal ways. Over six million died in concentration camps, ghettos, or death marches (Rice 11). 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 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 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
Sobibor: The Devil's Death Camp In the early thirties and forties many German Nazi concentration camps would become a final resting place for those against a man by the name of, Adolf Hitler. Amongst them was the camp of Sobibor. Sobibor was constructed in the spring of 1942, in the Lublin district of Poland, near the small village of Sobibor. Sobibor had one purpose and one purpose only, to kill as many Jews as quickly as possible. Sobibor was actually two camps divided into three parts.
In the end of it all, many belonging where found, including human hair, hair brushes, and clothes, along with the suitcases of the Jews who were forced to give them up (Liberation). The total death count from the Holocaust was around seven million Jews, and other individuals (The Holocaust).

This is evident when the Hubermanns, Liesel 's foster parents, take in a Jew named Max Vandenburg. Hiding Max is very significant given the Hubermanns lived in Nazi Germany, a society that killed Jews and anybody who would dare to associate with them. “For me, the sky was the color of Jews. They just kept feeding me. Minute after minute.
Inside these sectionalized camps people were separated by gender, country of origin, captured enemies of state and their sexual orientation. Roma and Jewish families were ripped apart from each other as part of the Nazi effort to inflict as much emotional and psychological pain as possible. Prisoners were lined up by gender and physicians examined them as part of the selection process to decide who would go into labor camps or who would be put to death (Auschwitz- Birkenau 1). Living conditions at labor camps were less than ideal and more often than not people died from the strenuous activity. 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.
