Do you know what concentration camps are?They were created as a final solution to destroy all Jews. Concentration camps were designed during the holocaust. Adolf Hitler wanted to take control and knew that Jews were already disliked. That is why he came up with concentration camps,to imprison Jews. They were a terrible place for Jews during the holocaust because of the way they had to live and the reasons behind why they were there.
Adolf Hitler “Those who want to live, let them fight, and those who do not want to fight in this world of eternal struggle do not deserve to live.” -Adolf Hitler. This essay will be over Adolf Hitler, leader of the Nazis and murderer of the Jews and countless others. Hitler got his point across to the Jews that he clearly did not want them around. He blamed them for the loss of World War II. In my opinion, I think he blamed them because they were not like him.
Auschwitz was mainly for working, but it still had gas chambers and crematories for the people that collapsed while working. Majdanek was also mainly for work, and the Nazis didn’t feed them enough so the Jews were very malnourished (Weglyn). Out of all the camps, work camps were the most useful for Hitler because if you 're going to imprison someone, better to just make them useful to you instead of killing off. Extermination Camps were mostly built to support Hitler in his FINAL SOLUTION. There were many camps built and used during this time such as Chelmno, Belzec, Treblinka, Sobibor, and Auschwitz-Birkenau, all of which were located in Germany.
About 90% of the people Hitler targeted were Jews. Hitler’s way of rule was inhumane in many different ways. Auschwitz was built by the Nazis as a concentration camp complex located in Silesia, present-day Poland. The location to Auschwitz was carefully planned out by the Nazi Party. In the city of Oswiecim, roads and railways intersected.
Another thing I learned more about was how the Germans viewed these events. Many did not agree with Hitler but never spoke up because of the fear they would be killed. Many people would fight in the war so they would not be seen as enemies. Anyone who disagreed was often killed or sent to a concentration camp. This event was really sad because no one could speak about what they thought without being seen as a traitor.
The Holocaust was a genocide in Germany of all European Jews and ‘undesirables’, led by Adolf Hitler; he managed to kill 6 million jews using concentration camps and systematic killing. In the concentration camps, the Jews were forced to do labour work in factories to manufacture goods for the war; conditions were terrible, as Jewish individuals were not treated well physically and psychologically. Previous knowledge and impressions of mine, regarding the Holocaust, came from classroom discussions, reading textbooks, and by doing assignments. Therefore, the film depicted how truly horrific the Holocaust was, as it ruined the lives of innocent individuals, due to a factor of their lives which they could not control; can not decide to be Jewish,
The holocaust caused a lot of trauma, for many people and races, and is still affecting people and their families today. With all the terrible burning, freezing, injections, and surgeries, it 's hard to realize that things like that actually happened. To today’s standards, all of the things that they did during World War II would be considered illegal in most countries. Especially under most cruel and unusual laws, if any of this were to happen in the United
The Holocaust is a historical event that the murdered around 6 million Jews and 5 million non-Jews. The Jews were also used for harsh labor, experiments, and starvation (Steele 6-7). The reason for this mass murder was that a leader during the time named Adolf Hitler wants to make his country an anti-semitic country (Steele 22). This tragedy took place all over Europe the main location was in Auschwitz, Germany (Blohm 6). Jews were a main target in The Holocaust, but some other victims were Roma, Sinti, disabled, and any other opposing religions (Steele 7).
As the Holocaust came to its near end, torture for those in Sighet, Transylvania begins. On page twenty, cruelty stirs up for the Jewish town after ghettos were set up. “A Jew no longer had the right to keep in his house gold, jewels, or any objects of value.” “There was a new decree: every Jew had to wear a yellow star.” In the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, every fellow citizen has privileges that cannot be taken away due to race, color, sex, or language. Since their status was considered inferior, their rights were taken away before they knew that the Germans were going to wipe out their population. Under these quotes recited from the text, article two can be matched with the book’s description of discrimination.
Out of all of the camps, Auschwitz-Birkenau had the highest total population of Jewish prisoners. Since this camp held the most prisoners, it had to be separated into ten sections. Each section was separated by barbed wire fences and much like Auschwitz I, was guarded heavily by SS officers including SS dog handlers. The camp included sections for women; men; a family camp for Roma (Gypsies) deported from Germany, Austria, and the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia. This camp was heavily populated also due to the fact that it had a killing center.
