Over two and a half million civilians were evacuated for their safety during The Second World War (The Evacuation). Children were being evacuated, and families were separated because of the violence in the war. The fighting began in 1939, and it lasted until 1945. The two sides in the conflict were the Axis powers with Germany, Italy, and Japan and the Allied forces with Britain, China, the Soviet Union, and the United States. World War II affected not only soldiers but also the commoners.
The Holocaust was an absolutely devastating time period, killing over 6 million innocent Jewish people. Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel lived through the tortuous time and wrote a meaningful memoir called Night. He also made a visit to Auschwitz, a concentration camp he stayed at. The visit to Auschwitz was made into a moving documentary called “Winfrey & Wiesel:Auschwitz”. A memoir and a documentary are both ways to convey and expose the events of the Holocaust and their severity.
Hitler, being the dictator of Germany, implemented many anti-Semitic laws which targeted the Jewish people of Germany. Jews were carted away into prison or segregated areas by the cartful each day on the streets. Furthermore, Jews were not allowed to do simple actions, such as take pictures or play sports. They were regarded by the government as “subhuman”. The hate grew even stronger on November 19, 1938 when the Nazis destroyed every synagogue or Jewish owned store in Germany.
The book Night by Elie Wiesel portrays him as a young boy living and surviving through one of the most horrific moments in history, the Nazis and all the concentration camps including Auschwitz, Buna, and Buchenwald. As a young boy Elie grew up in Sighet, a small town in Romania. Elie and the rest of the town, including his father mother and siblings were captured by the Germans and were taken to many of the concentration camps. While at the camps Elie was left with his father and experienced many of the horrors of the camps. Throughout the book Elie and his father saw some of the awful things that happened at the camps including people burned, hanged, murdered, beaten, starved, and put to work under terrible conditions.
For example, the red triangle identified political prisoners, pink triangle identified the homosexuals, green triangle identified the criminals, blue triangle identified the foreign prisoners, etc. Approximately 100.000 (Jewish Virtual Library) prisoners died of starvation, disease, forced labor, maltreatment or systematic execution by the SS guards in the area of the execution trench. Many prisoners were also selected for the now infamous Nazi medical experimentations which took place in the infirmary barracks of the camp. When the Soviets reached the Oder River, the commandant of Sachsenhausen ordered the immediate evacuation of the camp. Thousands of prisoners died on the forced "death march" as a result of the freezing weather, weak health and starvation.
In WW2 the holocaust clamed 6 million Jews lives, and over 7 million soviets died too and 1.7 million of those soviets were also counted towards the 6 million Jews. The holocaust was a genocide during World War II in when Adolf Hitler's Nazi Germany tried to take over then world and also attempted to kill off all the Jews. They would send Jews and people who opposed them to concentration camps where they were either durned or worked till they couldn’t. Night is an autobiography by Elie Wiesel, a holocaust survivor. Auschwitz death camp is a video documentary with oprah winfrey and Elie Wiesel.
To begin, Rudolf Hess is a perpetrator because he was involved in killing and torturing many Jewish people. Even from a young age, Rudolf Hess blamed the Jewish people for the problems within Germany (UXL Biographies 1). After the war, which Germany lost, the country was in debt, and people were looking for something to blame. They turned to Jewish people. Adolf HItler assigned Rudolf Hess to many concentration camps where he was in charge of the deaths of many Jewish people.
It was done by Germany in its concentration camps in the early 40’s, during the World War 2 and the Holocaust. Boss target populaces included Romani, Sinti, ethnic Poles, Soviet POWs, crippled Germans, and most unmistakably of all Jews from crosswise over Europe. Nazi doctors forced people into participating involuntarily and no consent was given as well. They were medically tortured badly. In other camps inmates were targets of various dangerous experiments there were meant to help the German military during combat, to help develop new weapons, to aid in the recovery of military officers who had be injured and to advance the Nazi racial ideology .
World War II was a horrible time in the world. Many Jewish people were murdered and killed for nothing more than being born Jewish. Lots of these people were children and one of these Jewish children was Anne Frank. Like many other Jewish people, she was forced into hiding by the Nazi Party and Hitler's regime. During Hitler's regime, Germany sent Jewish families and even children to places called concentration camps where they would be worked until their death.
The Holocaust was the mass genocide of 11 million people, 6 million of those people being of the Jewish heritage. With over 9 million Jews living in Europe before, these demoralizing events annihilated two-third of the Jewish population (Stahinich 7). The other 5 million people were those of different minorities and sub-categories such as Jehovah's Witnesses, Gypsies, people with handicaps, homosexuals, and Communists (Stahinich 8). The Holocaust took place in many different European countries. Many of these events happened in Germany, which was the birthplace of the Nazi party.
